I went for a lovely mid-morning bike ride with Megan and her friend-that-is-a-boy Mark.
It was my first workout since Saturday’s trail race, and my legs felt pretty tight. I’m glad I had friends to ride with! 🙂
Also, I hope I can find another awesome, quiet road to bike on when we move to North Carolina in June. I really love the airport route.
I did 18.0 miles in 1:15. Getting faster!
Came home, did some work, sold our old car, and got my car towed (turns out the flat was actually a flat).
And then I made lunch, which I ate in two parts.
Part I: Chobani pineapple with 1/4 cup raw oatmeal (all we had). I promise raw oatmeal tastes really good in yogurt.
Part II was a pile of roasted veggies.
That disgusting looking thing on the right is a roasted artichoke. I have never cooked one (but I LOVEEEE canned ones) and decided to experiment. It sure looked beautiful in the store!
I coated it in EVOO and balmasic and cooked at 400 degrees for twenty minutes. It ended up being tough, yucky, and bland. Fail.
What did I do wrong???
The rest of my veggies (roasted Butternut Squash and Brussel sprouts) were great!
Question of the day: If you were any fruit or vegetable, which would you be and why? I would be… parsnips! Because I’m spicy, sassy, and like ketchup. 🙂
Oh no!!! I JUST made an artichoke last night, but we didn’t have foil so I boiled it instead. Check out my post. It was super easy and came out fabulously.
