When Dave got home from school today, I decided that we should go for a run because it was so nice out. We ran/ walked about 3 miles. It was nice because we went through the Oak Park Arts District and through a playground. I have to say that I felt so out of shape at the playground! When I was little, I looooved climbing up poles and doing the monkey bars, now it’s such a challenge!
Overall, I really did miss running outside with a friend. In high school, I ran year round; I did cross-country, winter track, and spring track, so running was an every day thing. What made running fun for me, was having people to talk to. I remember laughing so hard while running that I would get so winded that I’d have to stop to catch my breath. Those were the good old days.
Anyways, when I got home I was starving as usual. I had a craving for string beans today and had made string beans for lunch and dinner. For lunch, I just stir fried the beans in some smart balance and mixed them with some garlic and jardinera.
mmmm… I love green foods!
Then for dinner, I made the beans in the same way, except that I added in some edamame, corn, black beans, and carrots for an asian/mexican/ italian fusion green bean dish.
Dave made some mei fun to go with our meal.
Anyways, I had received an email from a reader asking me to put up more recipes, which I def will . The thing is, is that many times I just wing it instead of using a recipe. I kind of eat what I crave and don’t really think twice about what types of veggies or spices I put in my food. I kind of smell the spice and if it goes with my dish, I put it in. Some may think this is strange, but I don’t even think twice about it. Anyways, I promise that if there is a dish that I make often, I will try my best to give exact measurements of the ingredients I use. So look for more recipes soon!
