Meals, Etc.

April 18, 2016

Hellloooooo.  The end (and beginning) of another week, eh?  I don’t have a recipe to share, but here are some easy meals we’ve enjoyed over the past week or so…

Greek wraps with lamb, feta, greek yogurt, cucumber, onions, and tomato:

Garden pasta—linguine with tomatoes, mushrooms, kale, spinach, and lots of garlic, parmesan + olive oil:

Super easy red beans and rice with sausaage:

Frittata with veggies and farmers’ market bacon:

I doubt any of these meals took longer than twenty minutes to make.  Suck it, Rachael Ray.

Other news: I got a woven wrap!  I never had one with Lila, so this is all new to me, but I love it so far.  I never liked the Moby because I never feel like I’m getting it tight enough—I’ll get the baby into it, and then after 15 minutes, I feel like he’s dropped 10 inches.  But the woven wrap isn’t stretchy at all—I’ve been wearing it on our evening walks, cooking dinner and I wore it to the botanical gardens today for a few hours straight, and he was great in it!  I’m just using the most straightforward carry (and apparently there are HUNDREDS…), so I still have a lot to learn, but I love it so far—and so does Charlie!

On Saturday, I headed over to our old neighborhood to run a 5k with a friend—the Cookie Dash.  I wasn’t sure what to expect from this race—I’ve been running off and on, certainly more and more frequently.  But some days are better than others.  I decided that my ultimate goal was to try for at least 9 minute miles.  And I did it—I kept an 8:35 pace, finishing in 26:40—pretty good!  And, it was a smallish race, so I actually ended up placing third in my age group—something I was NOT expecting.  The first and second place women in my group were at 21 and 22 minutes, haha.  I guess I lucked out!  And I got this super-cool medal:

Nice.

Other than that…we’ve been doing a lot of porch-swingin’…a lot of finger chewin’ (I think Charlie might be getting his first tooth?!?)…and some working in the yard, trying to get the house looking its best:

Have a great Monday!

    All those meals look delicious! I want to eat at your house! Congrats on the race – that’s a really good time! Did they serve a lot of cookies afterward? Nothing wrong with a Cookie 5K!!
