How was your weekend? Mine started out in the best way:
On Saturday I woke up with a serious craving for a Mitchell’s Deli breakfast sandwich and made it happen after going for a swim. Yep, a swim instead of a run on a Saturday morning — who am I?!
Later that day I met my friend Katy (with a Y) for a walk, and the next morning I met my friend Katie (with an IE) for a run
It was freezing this weekend — in the 20s! We kept a speedy pace to stay warm. Speaking of speedy, the bump is growing at a very fast rate these days. Apparently baby is now the size of a head of romaine lettuce?!
We didn’t have any lettuce this weekend because it’s too cold for salad, duh. Instead I cranked up the oven and roast a whole chicken.
Cook’s Illustrated’s crispy roast lemon chicken is SO good. It’s a little labor intensive but perfect for a cold weekend night. I linked to the recipe so you can see all the steps, but basically you stuff a chicken with lemons and garlic, roast it for an hour or so, and then cut it up and broil it in a broth/butter/lemon sauce. Yum.
Since the oven was going, I popped in a pan of veggies as a side. Done!
After dinner our weekend got really wild with a stroll around the neighborhood.
Street furniture spotting! A whole couch and desk chair available on Setliff Drive if you’re interested. What a treat.
And here’s another early Christmas gift to myself. I’m not much of an impulse shopper but when I saw Aldi was selling a 20-piece set of Anchor glass food storage containers for THIRTEEN DOLLARS you know I put it in my cart without a question. #tupperwarediva
Off to go for a run in the rain. Hope you had a good weekend!
