Zucchini, celery, red pepper hummus
I worked some more…non stop…until 5:18, actually. Very busy today and tomorrow won’t be any slower.
I got a super fun package today!!!
Stephanie, over at Cookin Fanatic, sent me this package for our fun blogger swap! She has access to a few things I can’t get here, and vice versa, so we decided to swap a few things to try.
I was so excited when I opened the box!
one of the NEW Larabar flavors!!! which I can’t get here.
Plus, one of my favorites (coconut cream) AND pistachio, which I also can’t find here.
Since we don’t have a Trader Joe’s here, there are a lot of things I see on blogs but have never tried, so I am very excited to try these banana snacks.
Thanks again Steph!!!
And we ran!
The weather was good for running, but not pretty. It was very overcast all day, but never actually rained. We had gray, gloomy conditions, but it was only in the high 60s/low 70s, so the temperature was perfect.
3.5 miles, done. Most of the run was good, but I could feel myself dragging near the end- my legs felt like lead and I just felt worn out.
Home, stretched, showered…
and I ate again.
Leftovers over the Pork + Poblano Pot from last night with some avocado.
Is avocado BAD on anything? I don’t think so.
blurry Roxy says hi!
The dessert last night turned out great.
I ended up making Ellie Krieger’s Pear Ginger Crumble Recipe.
This crumble topping mixture is awesome I could just eat a bowl of that. It turned out really well, but I think the pears needed to be a bit more ripe or I should have baked it a bit longer. Some pear pieces weren’t totally tender, but it was tasty! Plus a little vanilla ice cream, because that is just needed on any crumble or crisp or cobbler, right?
I love Ellie Krieger’s recipes! Everything I’ve tried of hers has been good.
I’ve got a busy night ahead:
- fold laundry
- finish packing for weekend!!! :)
- edit some of Nick’s dissertation
- watch football…
- watch The Office!
- pack my lunch for tomorrow
Also…make sure your thinking caps are on, as I have an important question to ask in the morning.
