Well, I had another somewhat sad showing of a run tonight. I ran 5 miles but felt super sluggish. I just swear it is that it was 70+ degrees again that was killing me. I don’t know what I’m going to do when summer hits for real.
Isn’t it true that I saw some kind of ice-hat type of ingenious thing somewhere? I swear a guy had one at the Badwater Ultra Marathon in Death Valley. I like to watch shows about stuff like that 🙂 Maybe I could get crafty and make one. I think the cold drips would be the best part!
When I got back I decided, as usual, that there’s no better way to get past a bad run and ready for tomorrow like something yummy! I went to Trader Joe’s today and found a bunch of stuff I hadn’t tried before and decided to throw some of it together somehow to make something delicious. I went risotto as it is always so good, and somewhat easy to hide vegetables in (ssshhh don’t tell my boyfriend there was kale in his risotto). So yes, I made risotto that had kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, carrots and shaved broccoli stems in it. It also had Parmesan so I’m not completely killing how risotto should be. Plus I found a bag of good looking shredded parmesan, so less work for me. Yay!
I had a nightcap of Vanilla bean ice-cream with chocolate syrup and milk (I do kind of a make a milkshake in a cup and smash it all up) and it was just perfection.
How do you get all your veggies?
Any recipes that hide them especially well? (and are kinda easy?)
