It has been feeling quite winter-y lately, but I’m enjoying it – the fresh, cold air feels so good when running!

My friend Kathleen and I got in another nice run this weekend – 5 miles, check!
I felt a little sluggish so I was especially glad to have a buddy to chat with to make the miles go by more easily. 🙂
Post-run breakfast courtesy of Chef Matt: cheese toast with bacon, eggs, avocado:
The bread was a delicious sprouted grain bread from local Honey Brook Farms I’ve been buying at the farmer’s market lately – love it!
The Del Ray farmer’s market is a little smaller now that winter is approaching, but there’s still a lot of great stuff there! I picked up a few other things (pictured above) while there on Saturday morning.
Other food highlights from the weekend included a trip to Aslin Brewery with some friends where Riese, Matt, and I shared some tacos and beans:
A yummy seared salmon with a yogurt sauce (just plain yogurt mixed with lemon juice and a tiny bit of grated garlic), plus some farro, canned chickpeas, and veggies:
Oatmeal is solidly back in the rotation – I use my microwave banana oatmeal recipe but double it and make it on the stovetop since I’m making it for 3 of us!
This variation had some frozen wild blueberries and ground flaxseed in the mix, too, plus some nut butter stirred in right before serving.
We also made a yummy cheesy lime chicken last night – this was a Blue Apron recipe and sooo good. I loved the caramelized red onion and peppers, too. Delicious!
My mom found some of my brother’s old block/large Lego type toys and Riese has been loving them (and the fireplace, which we just had re-tiled last week when they were doing the kitchen backsplash)… the fireplace it makes the house feel so cozy and the animals agree:
And lastly, I bought a new 2020 planner this weekend and I’m super nerdily excited about it. Anyone else get really pumped for new planners? (It’s this one on Amazon – affiliate link – if you’re interested!)
Have a great Monday and I’ll see you guys back here with a fun fall cocktail recipe!
