Today’s run was pretty uneventful, if you believe that running across the surface of the sun is uneventful. Just kidding, it was a few degrees cooler than the sun’s surface. I am so excited for (the three day week-end of course) and my first long-run with my Garmin. I think the previous ones may have been at a faster pace, so it should be enlightening to see if I can maintain the right pace.
Recipe number two from Clean Eating was Pasta Lentil Bolognese. It was exciting to get to use carrots from my garden.
I used Dreamfields Pasta because J hates whole wheat pasta but will eat Dreamfields. I only had regular lentils on hand, so I did not use the green ones the recipe called for. I also omitted the fennel bulb because I could not find one, I think they may be out of season.
The lentils really gave the sauce a meaty flavor. This recipe would be great for meat eaters that want to eat less meat but are still looking for that heft in their meals. I added a side of grape tomatoes, crumbled feta, and olive oil.
Overall, I liked the dish but the total time was long for a weeknight meal. If I were to make this again, I would make the sauce on Sunday and reheat for later in the week.
Tail was barely able to keep his eyes opened while I cooked.
Two more work days until a glorious long weekend.
Do you have any plans for the holiday?
