I’m definitely living in a dream right now. This day has been so relaxed, so laid back. Excited for many more Saturdays in Cville!
Biking downtown is so much easier than I ever imagined! It’s 2.5 miles (what I used to bike to the gym and back everyday) and has bike lanes 75% of the time. It is more trafficky than I’d like, but I’m getting used to that, and it seems cars are very bike friendly here.
Summer is in full swing, but the temps are more like fall!
How could you not buy a bunch of swiss chard that comes with a cute inchworm!? Looks like he already had a nutritious lunch on that one leaf
Food blogger jewelry from Inedible Jewelry!! I am going back for these.
Our goods. So excited.
Grass fed local beef.
The best part of summer. Hands down.
And my favorite veggie!
Two basil plants now in a window box and ready to grow!
We had beans simmer in the crockpot all morning. I won this guy when I won "Best Food Blog" 2009 from the Foodbuzz awards. Since I knew we were moving, I kept it in a box all this time and used our smaller one. Well, this crockpot is the big daddy!! SO nice! Love all the programming and multiple settings.
Adzuki beans cooked away!
After some more house work Matt and I set off on a quick run. Just enough to get us out of breath for the day. ~3.2 miles and ~30 minutes total. The HILLS. Oh, the hills. They are killer here!! We had hills in Charlotte, but they were gradual and not very frequent. The hills here are very steep and there’s one on every street! My running pace is either going to go way down, or up as I get used to them and run on flat again.
Lunch came next.
The last of our High Five Fiber loaf!
Turned into a turkey, avocado, mustard, romaine and tomato stack. I ate it with a fork. It was great!
Fruit on the side
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some baking to do!
