So I’m "hungrier" (=thirst) than I normally am after a long run and also have that woozy, tired feeling in my body. I figured out – I’m SO DEHYDRATED. I think the culprit was going into that run dehydrated from being out of town and not drinking enough water yesterday.
But I also got my Camelbak "bladder" [ew] out to clean it and discovered I barely made a dent in my water!! I thought I’d had 5 cups (I drank at least every mile and felt a bit full in the belly) but I don’t think I had very much at all. That explains it!
Dinner tonight was a piece of cake to put together. We thawed in the fridge all day and then heated in the microwave frozen leftovers from this Mexican Bison Pasta we made a while back. The pasta WITH sauce ended up freezing perfectly fine! We spiced up the pasta with the last of the Don Sabrosa Black Bean Salsa, which I really loved!! With my onion aversion, this was an exception to my consistent hatred for oniony salsas – it was great!
To go with the pasta, we sauteed up a big green cabbage. I like vinegar, but I’m not a vinegar lover. I feel like all cabbage dishes are vinegar based! So when I was at the Rowan Salisbury Schools, they had simple steamed green cabbage seasoned with just some canola oil, salt and pepper. It was so good – actually sweet!!!! Tonight I replicated it by sautee-steaming it on the stovetop and loved the result. Just a little water to help it steam in a big pot and drizzled with a tsp of oil and S+P at the end.
Havin’ some tea and two Biscoffs while Matt and I watch the Simpsons.
Ahhhh it feels good to finally relax!
