Evening! My legs feel pretty good after our 10.0 mile trail run! Just to be safe, I iced down my knees and feet per my usual.
Icing helps SO much for soreness… I would love to do an ice bath, but that would involve 1) scrubbing my bath tub and 2) sitting in a bunch of ice, which sounds miserable.
Icing down with cubes in Ziploc bags might not be AS effective, but it’s so much more comfortable!
While I iced, I had Pita chips and salsa (counts as a vegetable!):
And dinner was easy-easy. I didn’t feel up for cooking so I dragged two stuffed pastas from the fridge.
A lot of people ask how I cook for the Husband, especially because he’s a vegetarian. I do most of the cooking in our house, and he’s a fun person to cook for because he’s down to eat pretty much whatever. He eats tofu, beans, fake meat, veggies… everything I eat.
I usually make him whatever I make myself, but just a LOT bigger portion. That man puts down a tons of food! He eats like a growing 16 year old boy.
Each pasta box has “about” 2 servings, but the servings are clearly sized to be a side dish. I made both so the Husband and I would both have enough to eat.
I had about 1.75 servings of pasta with steamed asparagus on top.
I liked this brand’s stuffed butternut squash, but this flavor was very, very disappointing. Don’t buy it! Bletch. I still ate it because I was hangry from all that trail running. 🙂
I had a spinach salad with sprouts, cucumber, and tomatoes on the side.
I also drank 1/2 a beer while cooking. I fully intended to drink it all, but I just wasn’t feeling it. :) I switched to herbal tea.
Now I’m watching awesome television programs like Sixteen and Pregnant and Too Young to Kill: Teenager Murders. Oh, Saturday nights.
Do you cook for your significant other, family, or roommate? Do they eat whatever you prepare or do you navigate picky eaters? I bet I end up having the PICKIEST kids – isn’t that how it always works?!
I love it when a blogger says not to get something. You know it’s the truth that way, thanks for the honest review!
The idea of making something for my roommate–LOL We’re hardly awake at the same hours/ever talk to each other. I have cooked for my parents before, a lot over winter vaca, and I got them to love foods I never thought we’d all like, like my gluten and soy free vegan meatloaf. My grandmother even tried tempeh and liked it, that was really random.
