Oh Friday, am I glad to see you. Bring on this three day weekend that includes dinner with a friend, lots of running, plenty of Ellie time, and a dessert potluck!
I got some disappointing news on Wednesday morning and although I sort of knew it was coming, it still was not fun. It did inspire me to go run 9 angry miles at 7:15 min/mile, which was kind of cool (since I’m nowhere near that fast normally) but I’ll take a celebratory run over an angry run any day.
I had a little of this as well…
In the past when I got stressed, healthy eating immediately vanished from my priorities and I drowned my sorrows in some combination of chips, cheese, and chocolate. This week, though, I’ve actually been motivated to cook relatively nutritious things. There’s something really cathartic about chopping up an onion and throwing it into a sizzling pan. I made a variation of this that included corn sauteed with garlic and chili powder.
Definitely not the last time I do that.
I also filled some portabello mushrooms with chunky refried pintos, and topped them with pepper jack cheese. They’re pretty easy as well as being nice and filling. Plus anything topped with melted pepper jack cheese is a win in my book.
