Amazing how much simple laziness rules my day-to-day activities.
Like tonight. When I needed to make dinner. And the shelves of the fridge were beyond sparse. And I didn’t want to go to the store. So I opened the freezer.
Frozen shrimp. Puff pastry. I can do something with that, right?
The only green matter on hand was frozen Edamame. So I went for an Asian theme. Add some brown rice, a batch of my go-to peanut sauce (an easy and foolpoof recipe inspired by Megan) and some beaten egg.
Shrimp Peanut Tarts. The hubs proclaimed these delicious. And I had to admit I was pleasantly surprised. Although it’s hard to go wrong with puff pastry!
Random dinner in the bag, aaaaaaand yet another day of procrastinating the inevitable grocery run. She scores!
Recipe: Shrimp Peanut Tarts
Today’s EAT: I also ate a peanut butter, bacon and maple syrup sandwich for lunch today. Don’t judge me.
Today’s DRINK: Put a cute animal on the bottle and I’m a sucker.
Today’s RUN: Weirdness: it was 65* and humid today in Raleigh. Happy January?
After putting around all morning, I finally made it out for a run. I planned to just go however far I wanted, luxuriating in my last day of non-training. I did six relaxed miles. It was nice, although a little strange to be drenched with humidity. (Hello, summer preview?)
Here’s how the week ended up:
M: 5 miles easy (40:50, 8:10 pace)
Tu: OFF (planned rest day)
W: OFF (unplanned rest day – thanks, migraine)
Th: 7.1 miles easy (1:02, 8:42 pace)
F: 4 miles easy (36:30, 9:04 pace)
Sa: OFF (unplanned rest day – thanks, tequila)
Su: 6.1 miles easy (51:50, 8:39 pace)
22.2 miles. Um….that’s like half of what it probably should be. Oh well. Spring half marathon training starts tomorrow, so a light week isn’t the worst thing in the world!
Today’s QUESTION: How often do you grocery shop? Do you enjoy it? I generally avoid it and don’t really enjoy it. And I’m kind of unorganized. Once every couple of weeks for big stuff, every other day or so for intermittent food needs. Also, I don’t think I’ve fully adjusted to life in North Carolina yet. I get annoyed when I have to get in the car and drive to the grocery store. Downtown Raleigh needs a walkable market!
