Yesterday was a pretty happenin’ day in the kitchen. I made pita chips for the first time, and they didn’t turn out half bad! In fact, the husband and I were eating them faster than I could make them – pretty embarrassing. It was very refreshing to taste a chip straight from the pan, and the combination of the cold hummus and warm chip was downright awesome. I also wanted to try my hand at this, because my mom has allergies to various oils/seeds, so to know that I could make this for her was great. Yes, the second batch has sesame seeds, only because I wanted some, and I figure if I eventually come down with the same allergy I wouldn’t have wasted sesame seeds when I was younger.
Naturally, I went on a run, and thanks to Washington weather I experienced hail, rain, and sunshine all in the timespan of 34 minutes… It was a great run, and it felt liberating to not have to run with the stroller. Silly was none too happy about it, but sometimes Mommy needs a few minutes to herself. Upon my return, I found out that another set of neighbors had dropped off these lovely gems, along with a sweet card welcoming us into the neighborhood.
In case you were wondering, chocolate chip cookies are the perfect buffer between a 4 mile run and 30 minute weight/abs session.
What are you up to this weekend?
This weekend will be a longer one, and we are hosting family as well. I imagine we’ll be running, eating like fools, and mainly hanging out.
Did anyone go out and celebrate St. Patty’s Day?
Nah, just stayed in and watched Jersey Shore. He had a beer though, if that counts! I had kombucha… naturally 😀
