I roasted three squashes this weekend and baked two pies. I’d say that the holidays are here!
The two pumpkins were turned into pies:
And the squash ended up on a salad! I make some version of this pomegranate // gorgonzola // squash // balsamic salad almost every winter because it’s colorful and festive. The pomegranate seeds are a pain in the rear to remove, but the finished product is so pretty! Perfect addition to our neighborhood potluck. Yum.
Wine all around, plus an extra helping of mac ‘n’ cheese for me please.
After dinner we strolled to the square to see our community Christmas tree lighting. I don’t think we’ll get it together this year for an official family holiday photo, so here’s our little fam + a bunch of strangers in the background. Merry Christmas!
Earlier on Saturday I made it out for a run!
Blue skies and crisp temps in the low 40s. Fifty-five is my favorite running temp but anything above 40 is acceptable too. Are you more of a warm or cold weather runner? I prefer summer but I try not to wimp out too much in the winter. Deep down I just won’t let myself be one of “those people” who start running every spring and then retire as soon as the temps drop the slightest.
How the heck did I run a marathon a month ago? The thought of doing anything over 10 miles feels impossible now. Glad that’s over with
One more photo of my shoes, but this time we have dragonfruit instead of a Garmin! Apparently I’m feeling pink these days.
Speaking of which, let me leave you with this new song from Pink that our instructor played in spin class yesterday. Good tune to kick off the week!
