My first Mother’s Day was a great one. Breakfast in the city, a new pair of shoes, and a run with my two favorite people, one of whom clearly had the time of her life.
Ellie (okay, fine… Mike) gave me a 12-pack of Gu, which was a little interesting to explain to my kids when they asked me what I got for Mother’s Day. The concept of long-run fueling is kind of foreign to them and they really couldn’t understand why I’d get excited about a box of goo.
Anyway, we had a lot of meals out this weekend, so I was pretty excited to put together a week full of good, homemade dinners.
It’s not exactly the season for apples, but the Fujis at my favorite grocery store are still completely delicious (especially with melted cheddar cheese on sourdough).
I added some sauteed shallots (and Mike added a bunch of HP sauce) and it was fantastic. Thanks (as always) for the inspiration, Beth!
