Teddy!I met up with a new running buddy today and introduced her to my favorite place to run in the whole DMV — Teddy Roosevelt Island. It’s just so lovely and peaceful.The clouds were heavy, but held out for us! I’m only drenched in sweat, not rain. Not sure which is better? Thanks for the run, Brittany!
What were you up to last night? I was on the treadmill but NOT because I wanted to exercise at all. I actually had to change out of my PJs and put on a pair of sneakers which was pure agony. But anyways, the treadmill TV was the only place in my apartment building where I could find cable.
To walk and watch the FINALE of The Bachelorette. Insanity. I can’t believe how it turned out! Also did anyone else get annoyed with the Super Fun Night adds popping up on the screen? Weird. BROOKS WHAT HAPPENED?! I liked Chris better anyways (other than the weird poetry). Can’t wait to read Oh Jones for a full analysis.
I walked the slowest 1.5 miles of my life because I was dedicating all of my energy to the show and was wearing half pajamas, half exercise clothes.
Now that we have covered running and trash TV, time for food.
The other night I had absolutely nothing in our fridge except for a lonely carrot, a half-eaten carton of yogurt, and a forgotten bunch of celery.
Soup to the rescue!
I dug up a bag of lentils and made a combination of this recipe and this recipe. Similar to my broccoli soup the other week, I was surprised by how good this tasted given how easy/healthy it was. I topped it with some red pepper flakes for a little kick.The only note I’d make is to use less coriander in the future. That stuff is strong!
And this is a picture for Anthony who is currently on the other side of the world. I bought this for you, dear, but then tried some myself. I can’t promise it will still be here when you return.Now THAT was some random typing. I don’t know where they’re all coming from this week. Have a great day and happy running/trash TV-watching/eating.
