A pastime of mine is running. Past tense because I cannot run well anymore! I think January broke me. Slowly I will work back up, but this morning’s 10K nearly killed me!
Matt and I ran (in shorts and t-shirts!!) a big 6 mile loop. I had to stop and walk up a few hills. I think it’s also Camelbak time – I was thirsty despite drinking a whole bottle of water before we left. Or course, maybe I was just having an off day, but running has been extra hard lately!
Once home, we had all the makings for tuna pita pockets!
When I was little we had a sandwich shop in Hillsborough called Lu-e-g’s. It was awesome. Hippy food with lots of sprouts. And you could get a bagel and cream cheese for only $1! Ahhh the 90s. We used to go every Sunday after church. But my mom would say: “We can go to Lu-e-g’s, but only if you get the bagel and not the tuna pita!”
You see, sometime during middle school, my friend Kirst (who you all met a few weeks ago!) started getting the Tuna Pitas – mustardy tuna with lettuce and sprouts in a warm honkin’ pita pocket. But they were $3.50 and did seem as economical to my mom week after week.
So this is my tribute to the Lu-e-g’s Tuna Pita. Canned tuna and carrots (sadly we had no celery like L’s did) with mayo and mustard stuffed in a microwave-warmed Trader Joe’s WW pita with more dijon mustard, spinach and lots of sprouts. So freakin’ delicious!!!
Served café-style with a handful of chips
And a juicy orange
One of my gifts to Matt was these awesome glasses from Pier 1 painted with chalkboard so you can write what’s in it! I intended for him to write the names of beers, but oddly he seems to want me to drink a smoothie out of it!
We just drank an entire keg of sparklin’ water!! He’s now making more!
Bocker is thirsty.
Speaking of smoothies, the lucky email address winner of the OpenSky Vita-Mix giveaway is…
The eating house (a.k.a. sorority) that I joined my freshman year at Davidson holds an annual breast cancer fundraising dinner called Bosom Buddies. I actually went to the event in 2008! Two KERF-reading Davidson Connor girls emailed me to share a video they made of a bunch of Davidson folks dancing around with a pink lei in honor of the upcoming event on March 12.
[The video is almost as cool as this I Love Commons video from 2009!]
I am hoping to spend a little time here this afternoon, because I FINISHED MY WRITING PROJECTS!
