I haven’t posted a lot about my life lately because I’ve been boring but also busy. Between work and volunteering, I haven’t even had a lot of time to meet with friends at diners much. (You know I must be busy then!) If I haven’t seen or talked to you in a while, my apologies. This post is all over the place, so hopefully, it makes some sense.
Typically March and April are the busiest times for work. Outdoor track is always a busy season, but there are also quite a few road races including the Broad Street 10 miler and NJ Full Marathon. Even though I’m not always in the store selling shoes in the store, I’ve been busy.
To be honest, I feel like I’ve been in a cave for most of 2016. Like most people, I blinked, and both January and February went by. Normally February creeps as slow as possible, but this February felt like it went by quickly.
Now here we are 11 days into March and nearly 11 months after I got married. I have a whole post dedicated for that, but that must wait until my husband, and I can eat our frozen-year-old wedding cake.
So in this random style post what else can I talk about?
I’ve been cooking a lot.
…but nothing has burnt down yet, and everything has been (relatively) edible. It’s also helped both my husband and I eat a lot healthier than we were. To be honest, both of our diets got out of control. We were both eating cake, cookies, ice cream, burgers most days. We both committed to eating healthier during March and April (when a few bigger races are). We’ve both opted to clean up our diets, cooking more. So far we both feel a lot better.
Experiment 1: We made our homemade bagels (recipe found here). It was honestly super easy, just time consuming. We’ve made the recipe a few times, and they’ve come out well. We even experimented adding cinnamon/sugar on a few which turned out just as good.
Experiment 2: Homemade Ice Cream
We purchased an ice cream maker months ago. We used it a few times but not many, in the last week we’ve made ice cream most nights. It’s simple and sweet. I haven’t done a lot of research of more recipes because I’ve been happy with the ones online that came with the ice cream maker. They are simple, easy and taste good.
Experiment three: Not so much an experiment because we’ve made it before but I like squid. We sautee it with oil and garlic.
