Squash soup seasons falls again
Today I am enjoying a total rest day from running and working out, in order to (hopefully) have fresh legs for tomorrow's 15K. While I enjoyed the opportunity to sleep in this morning, I felt (and feel) a little twitchy getting no substantial exercise today! I do think I will really benefit from the long night of sleep, though, especially as I have to get up at 5:00 to head north tomorrow so can't expect to get TOO much sleep tonight.
When I was in the kitchen fixing breakfast this morning (which I was able to enjoy in a leisurely manner instead of gobbling it down in a rush before work as I do on running mornings), I looked out the window to see another traditional fall morning sight--fog. It made me feel all New Englandy. It would have been a very nice morning for running! It burned off quickly and now we are enjoying a sunny late summer day.
Tonight I am "carb-loading" with a pasta dish I got from the Amateur Gourmet. It's called Penne (or some kind of pasta) Norma, but it's just sauteed eggplant with fresh tomatoes, garlic and basil. It sounds wonderful to me because I LURRRVE eggplant. (And he says in the accompanying blog post that eggplant doesn't inspire passion--I beg to differ!) And there may or may not be another pear crisp in the offing. :)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
