I only ate half a banana and a bite of Ben’s pancake and sausage breakfast before leaving. Not sure if my body wanted my usual PB toast or what but I hit a wall and ended my run earlier than planned. At least I got 13 miles in – I have a half marathon next weekend and another half the weekend after that so I just wanted to make sure I’m up to the challenge!!
It’s weird, when I run 15 miles or more I’m not really hungry after (I think all the stress scares my body into thinking I’m being chased by a lion). But, after a 13 miler or less I usually build up an appetite and came back HUNGRY.
A little while later I was still hungry, but knew I just needed my food to settle. I finally asked Ben to peel the pomegranate for a snack. I talked him through the underwater de-seeding method and I think it changed his life
Seriously. He LOVED the method and taking big handfuls of the arils. He said I should buy them all the time and he’d take care of opening them. Score!
I need to find a dress for Ben’s work Christmas party. I actually liked both of the dresses I tried on, but I didn’t love them so I passed. I kind of want something green or red for the holiday too. The search continues…
We saw Max the Lab on the way home – apparently he has a Facebook page as advertised on the back of this truck!
Well, Ben heard on NPR that Julie Child would make it Spatchcock style – that is when you cut out the backbone and spread it out. He butchered the bird, I just stood there looking horrified and bossing <- my specialty.
Question: How’s it going with you?
