The Bears say hello! With a shout out to their Montana Man, whom they miss : )
Runs always make me late! I thought I had plenty of time to run, shower, eat and blog before I left on my date with Karen tonight but turns out I didn’t.
4.5 knocked me out! I felt as wiped as I used to with 10 miles all afternoon. Guess it’s been a while since I’ve ran outside! It was a strong + hard run.
When I returned and showered, I put together a quick lunch that got eaten way faster than I would have liked
I heated up our leftover Tofu Parm from the other night and had it with a salad made of spinach, red pepper, figs, apricot stilton (leftover from Xmas parties!), wheatberries and the other half of my giant pear.
It was delicious and super filling!
After lunch I met Karen and her friends Tracy and Clayton to see “The King’s Speech”!
Karen says hi!
I thought the movie was great. Really well acted and a good story.
Afterwards we went for coffee and I had a peppermint tea with steamed milk on top
For maximum outdoor enjoyment, I decided to walk home while Karen went walking at the gym. I witnessed a gorgeous sunset!
And the beautiful mountainscape of Virginia
Karen came back to my place for dinner, and we made leftover chili that she froze while I was gone
We were going to have a kale salad on the side (she’s on a kale kick!) but we decided after lightly steaming it in a pot with a few tablespoons of water to pour the chili on top.
It turned out to bed a fabulous idea!! I LOVED being able to eat the chili with a fork – it was more like a lasagna/pasta bake dish.
Topped with cheese, sour cream and the very last of a chip bag
We also had some leftover slices of cornbread, but I didn’t have more than a bite – it didn’t taste that great to me.
This chocolate did though! We each had a few squares after dinner.
Tomorrow I have an exciting giveaway to announce that involves peanut butter making!! And expect the next Home Neat Home post [Clothes + Closets] on Tuesday!
