Hello from Ventura, California!!!
First, let me share the mundane details of my morning… I ran. And ate.
And that’s why I named this blog Run, Eat,Repeat. My next blog will be called Captain-Obvious dot com.
Specifically I ate a watermelon.
And Reese’s PB Cups Easter style.
Then, I jumped in the car and headed north to Ventura.
Traffic was horrible. But, I get to live here in beautiful California so I’m sure you don’t feel bad for me.
But – let me ask you this… if I would have peed in my pants because traffic was so bad – would you have felt bad for me then?
Because it was close.
Four hours and 100 miles later I made it!
I am just north of Los Angeles for an event with the California Strawberry Council! I’m pretty excited because:
A.) I love strawberries.
B.) My new nickname is shortcake according to strangers in China.
C.) I want to be a watermelon farmer so I’m hoping this will teach me a few things.
Plus, they are calling this event 365 Days of Strawberries. Unfortunately I read that as 365 Strawberries To EAT, but I am hoping they hook me up since it’s a goal I’m working toward.
Tonight’s events began with a Strawberry Basil Mojito. Yes please.
My date for the evening was the beautiful Anne – who I just hung out with at the LA Marathon. She’s my new favorite peep.
My plate with spinach and strawberry salad, chicken, salmon and more!
This was the only clear shot I got of the chocolate covered strawberries before I threw the camera in my purse and attacked this plate.
Tomorrow we’re touring a strawberry farm and then I’m going to try and eat 365 of them!!! Are you betting on me winning the prize for most strawbs eaten in one day??!?!
Question: How many strawberries would you eat?
Give me a specific number, no fence sitting on this very important poll!!!
Kinda sorta related: Given the timing of this event and the Cesar Chavez movie coming out this weekend I am very excited and curious to visit a farm in CA myself. Plus, I need to learn how these things are run so I can open my own watermelon farm soon… Watermelon Harvest, Eat, Repeat.
