...and hubby's 10 mile race recap!
It all began with a morning snack + a mini-workout [yoogaa]
Then I packed snacks + fuel for post-race inhaling:
overnight oats + ice = cold oats later? no.
overnight oats + ice = watery oats later. Bummer.
I ate a mug of oats.
Dicing + slicing veggies
A grand collection.
The love of my life! God blessed me with the most incredible, loving, caring husband ever.
marathon (!!!) runners went first (3 large loops in forest)
I ran 20 minutes without knee pain!
okay, okay. I jogged at a very very slow pace.. but still!
Runnn Loveee Runnn!
10 miles - 1:09:41
He got lost a few times, and the mile markers were messed with by some teens who were running with a high school group. Most of the hardcore finishers were pretty bummed out about it 'cause their official finish times weren't 100% accurate, but Eduardo said he enjoyed it mucho and is happy with his results. What whaaat :)
mai whole wheat crust face, with mushroom tomato sauce, kale, broccoli, beets, bell pepper, canned pineapple, green onion, and serrano chili.
My aunt passed me 2 more recipes: a Rye Bread fella and a Cinnamon Bread that was too tempting to "save for next weekend" so I printed her 2 recipes, added some pics I found on google (hah) and managed my time in a pretty nice manner (I made these before the pizza, and while they were rising for an hour, I prepared the pizza. Once the pizza was out of the oven, the 2 loaves had finished their 2nd rise and were ready to be popped in the oven. It was joyous).
Using the same basic ingredients + instructions for my whole wheat loaves, I came up with this:
whole wheat flour, gluten flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, raisin (not pictured), flaxseed + salt business
dark rye flour, tiny bit of whole wheat flour, gluten flour (next time I'll make it 100% gluten free but I was a bit intimidated by that idea this time), coriander seeds (same as caraway, right?), unsweetened cocoa powder, dash o' salt.
rise my love bugs, double in siiizzee!
bootiful. I think the rye guy needed more flour, but I was scared to pass the max amount of flour that was asked in the recipe - trying to avoid a dry loaf. We'll see how these loaves taste + adjust ingredients accordingly.
Birthdays are fun stuff.
From left: wasabi + ginger (spice + palette cleanser), 3 avocado cucumber, 1 okra, 1 inari, 2 roasted bell pepper, 1 grilled portabella mushroom, 1 enoki mushroom + chives.
avocado cukes: 5 stars
okra: shoulda been raw
inari: tofu, soft, seasoned
bell peppah: delightful
portabella: my first time, tasty.
shroom + chives: fantastical.
Insanely good, incredibly simple flavors, unforgettable little plate of goodies. Honestly, I couldn't stop taking about how I wanted to return to this restaurant, and how crazy it was that I had never had sushi before. But then I realized: why not just make sushi at home? It'd be fantastically easy, so... it's on my to-do list.
PS: Go to Umi Sake House if you're ever in Seattle
+ want to eat something AWESOME.
