Servin’ Up Curveballs and Leftovers
Morning, friends! It’s Thursday – Almost weekend time
I just got back from a 6 mile run. I sure do love morning runs, but the daylight is dwindling!
Post-run, I made a delicious pumpkin pie smoothie
If you remembered I had signed up for a 5k that I wanted to PR on this weekend, you might be wondering why I ran 6 miles today (which is a lot for me, for a mid week run) instead of taking it easy…
Well, that 5k is yesterday’s news.
If you read yesterday’s post on double and triple booking myself, you saw that I had three events planned for this Saturday. Needless to say, the 5k didn’t win.
But Shane surprised me with Cubs tickets for our anniversary! Our anniversary is next Monday, so we’re going to celebrate it up Cubbies style! We’re going with another couple for the game, so it should be a lot of fun!
This will be our first time at a Cubs game since last August!
Go Cubs Gooo
Any of my Chicago blogger friends going to the game?
So, sadly, I won’t be able to run in the United Way 5k OR the Walk for Brain Cancer, but I will get to root, root, root for the Cubbies when they play the Cardinals this Saturday!
From serving up curve balls to serving up dinner….
Servin’ Up Leftovers
Did you know I’ve never frozen leftovers before this year? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE leftovers, but I’ve never thought of freezing them to preserve them. I grew up in a house where they’d sit in the fridge for a few days, then if still not eaten, to the trash.
Now, however, I LOVE freezing leftovers:
Let me preface by saying that yesterday I had a 13 hours day – straight- of work. So when I got home at 8 pm last night the last thing I wanted to do was cook. No matter how badly I wanted roasted kale, I was not going to roast it myself. So, I turned to the freezer. I looked through a few different forgotten meals when I finally settled on a leftover frozen veggie burger.
Homemade veggie burgers are probably my favorite frozen leftover.
Served a la “cheeseburger” with fresh avocado, tomato, lettuce, and ketchup.
What’s your favorite leftover to freeze? Veggie burgers always freeze well, but I also find that most rice based dishes freeze well, too!
Have a lovely Thursday guys!!! 😀
