I have got to get better about taking pictures!
I only have pics of dinner tonight, but it was such a good day.
We ended up going over to a family’s house from church for lunch today. A couple that used to go to our church was in town visiting, so a group of us ate lunch together and caught up on things. I can’t believe it had been a year and half since we’d seen them! It was a fun time – we had some bbq from a local place that’s pretty good. I had some pork, a bunch of broccoli and cauliflower, a huge amount of a really good berry salad and 2 hushpuppies.
I actually was going to get a scoop of macaroni and cheese since I was still a little hungry, but when I got up there, the entire tray was gone! I guess I was too slow :)
I was hungry again by the time we were leaving (around 3:30), so I ate a key lime pie Larabar in the car on the way home since I was planning on running this afternoon. I love that key lime bar – one of my favorites for sure.
I came home, changed, and had Nick put a new battery in my HRM for me. Well…Nick wanted to go so we decided to just run one of our normal routes instead of me doing 7 miles today. Sorry Whit! I know I said I was doing my long run today :\ I’m actually just proud that I ran at all.
My goodness, it was chilly. I had on pants, 2 shirts, my gloves, and my headband/ear covers. By the time we left the house, it was around 40 degrees, completely overcast, and pretty windy. But we went.
We almost didn’t, actually. We left the house and started walking down the road and we BOTH turned around to come back home :) But, then we were already dressed and outside, so we turned back around and just did about 4 miles today.
I came home, put the squash in the oven and ran up to the grocery store to get a rotisserie chicken for tonight and tomorrow’s dinner.
I roasted a local acorn squash for us to go with the chicken. I also cooked up some kale with a little crushed red pepper and maple syrup.
This kale shrunk so much! I had never seen any cook down as much as this bunch did. I started out with probably 4 cups of raw kale and it didn’t even make a full cup once it was cooked.
But at least we had a green with dinner!
I’m trying to decide whether to bake something tonight or wait until tomorrow…I guess we’ll see :)
What’s your favorite green vegetable?
