Hi friends! Popping in for some Wednesday randomness for you. First, we are still enjoying this crockpot chicken and veggie stew – recipe is coming Friday, get pumped. I had some more for lunch yesterday, this time with some arugula on top!
Second, The Great Homemade Kombucha Experiment of 2016/2017 is still going strong! I mentioned previously Matt is trying his hand at homemade kombucha. Attempt #1 with a dry starter scoby was a fail, but attempt #2 with a scoby pilfered from a jar of purchased kombucha appears to be working!
Matt created this high tech contraption to keep the kombucha warm enough (our house is usually 68-70 degrees and we’ve read that’s a bit chilly for the scoby to keep growing) using a box and our heating vent with a thermometer in the jar to make sure it doesn’t get too hot. Quite creative! 🙂
In other news, Matt and I went for a nice jog on Monday afternoon. He had the day off, I was working from home but not too hard. 🙂 We kept it nice and casual on pace and did a loop around our hilly neighborhood.
The final distance – 2.76 – made me laugh because some of you commented on my weekend adventures post about how seeing 6.45 as the final distance on my watch made you want to run the additional 0.05 miles for me to make it 6.5!
So – I thought this would be a fun debate for the blog. 🙂 If you’re a runner (or walker, or biker, or anything that tracks mileage) – do you make sure you finish on a rounded off/whole/half mile, or are random numbers fine? I’m split on the issue – if it’s over .85, I want to finish out the mile. But any less than that and I don’t care what the number is. I think I’m Type B+, ha!
Have a great day guys! I’m teaching English this morning and then I’ll be working the rest of the day downtown. Let’s all make it a good one, shall we? 🙂
