Sorry for all of the grey photos lately — this weather is really dragging the blog down! Though it’s made my past couple of runs a little dreary, I won’t let it stop me from getting out the door altogether.
Yesterday I did a hilly five miles into the park and back out again. The climb is steep! I’ve run by this graffiti elephant probably 500+ times since we moved to Nashville and he always brightens my day.
Found a spot of color on the sidewalk and took this picture just for you. By the way, I’ve been loving my Saucony Kinvaras. They’re not 100% perfect for my foot and form like my beloved PureConnects were, but they’re a solid 99%! (And cheaper. And still in stock.)
Other favorite running finds lately: the ONE and ONLY pair of maternity athletic tights that are sweat-wicking and made for actually working out. I found THESE at Athleta after trying on about five other brands and was so relieved that they actually fit, weren’t made of cheap material, and were under $100! Pea in the Pod was the only other store with decent running tights but they were super pricey. The Athleta ones are on sale right now for $28 and you can bet I just bought a second pair 😉
Shoe and clothing rant over! Moving right along to food…
We had some friends over on Sunday for tacos + the finale of Westworld! What a weird but good show. Anyone else watching?
I’ve been really disappointed in store-bought corn tortillas — they always crumble and have no flavor! I bought some masa flour and tried to make my own.
All you need is flour, water, salt, and a hot griddle or pan — sounds easy, right? I added some olive oil to try and make the dough stay together, but mine still came out quite crumbly and were all amoeba-shaped. On the plus side, they tasted really good!
We made taco mountains instead of roll-ups and went fork-and-knife style. Problem solved!
Does anyone have experience with a tortilla press? I think I might need one for homemade tortilla attempt #2.
And those are all of the random morning thoughts I have for you today! Stay dry out there.
