Hello Monday. We meet again. I am seriously dragging this morning and wishing I was curled up on the couch watching a Law & Order: SVU marathon. Instead I'm in my cube, playing Words with Friends, and studying water-soluble vitamins. C'est la vie.
Today marks the start of the #RESTWEEK Challenge which I am pretty pumped about after my 6.5 mile run yesterday. It took me every bit of motivation and a pre-nap to get me out there, but am glad I did. Nothing beats that feeling of a good run. Eating ice cream comes in at a close second but still doesn't beat it. Nuffin.
In Southern News, I also checked off another on the Southern in Sixty bucket list. Peanuts in a bottle of coke. The roomie and I were bound to find an old-fashioned coke bottle, but even Cracker Barrel let us down. Well, actually they DID have coke, but were tiny bottles which wasn't gunna cut it for the true experience. Instead I got a bottle of CheerWine, which is an old Southern soda which is kinda like a cherry coke. Until I tried it. It was far from cheery and even further from wine. It didn't taste like cherry coke at all, and well just wasn't worth drinking. The only reason I did was to get to the salty peanut surprise inside, which was tastier than i expected. Sweet and Salty. But not nearly as awesome as fried green tomata's, so I call it did and done. NEXT!
This week's recipe was one I adapted from Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean for Lentil Veggie Mac & Cheese. I didn't have any macaroni noodles, but had plenty of brown rice to spare. Kitchen experimentation initiated.
Delicious! This dish reminded me of shepherd's pie. I can't wait to eat this dish up which made quite the large amount of food. If I carried that pan around for a good bit I could have probably counted that as my workout too. I choose to eat it instead.Print
