When you realize your weekend has three days instead of two, you start to go crazy with all of your newfound free time. Anthony decided to take on a project during this wonderful break.
Mussels.He followed this recipe (I just watched and poured wine) and it turned out great! Mussels are actually not that expensive (for seafood) and are also easy to cook.If you like to literally pick at your food, and don’t mind a bit of mush, you should try ’em!The recipe was pretty spicy… so we needed something sweet. Boccato! Choosing just two flavors is pure agony, but we were able to settle on pistachio and salted caramel. It doesn’t take much to make me smile.
And then it was Saturday at 7 a.m. and I was with the DC Road Runners. Nothing like a sweaty sixteen miler!I had lovely conversations with some of the club members for the first eight miles and enjoyed some quality time with Rihanna for the last eight miles. Beach Drive, I’ve missed you!I took it pretty easy and cruised at an 8:35ish pace for most of the miles. The last bit was pretty sunny and sweaty, but I just kept chuggin along! It was a good run. Speaking of chug along, that’s what I’ve gotta do. I just made a to-do list and it has 15 items. Luckily one of them is to bake a batch of scones.
Have a good weekend!
- Did you do a long run this weekend? What was it like?
- Have you ever eaten mussels and/or made them yourself?
- Are you on vacay or at home this long weekend?
