Recipe Fail

I tried another new recipe this week, and I have to say, it sucked.   The recipe was for Zucchini Pasta with Avocado, Roasted Tomato & Bacon.  Sounds delicious, right?  That’s what Tim and I thought too.  But it wasn’t.  Not at all.  I think it was too lardy.  And the bacon was too limp.  Who wants limp bacon?  No one, that’s who.  Perhaps I made it wrong?  Anyway, I won’t be making this one again.

Next week I’m going to be in training in Minneapolis all week, and I’m already dreading what I’m going to feel like come Friday night. It’s so hard to eat well when traveling, especially when traveling alone.  Unless I work up the courage to befriend my classmates, I’ll probably be hitting up Chipotle for a burrito bowl-to-go every night.  I’ll need to stock up on Lara bars, beef jerky, and fruit so I have some healthy snacks in the hotel.  Otherwise I will for sure be eating a Snickers from the vending machine every night. Good thing Tim and I are doing the Bix 7 mile run on Saturday.  

And, that’s all I have to say.  I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately – about where to live, what do, how to make a meaningful, productive life.  I’m reading The Power of Now, which has gotten me thinking.  But I haven’t come to any conclusions yet, so I’ll hold my tongue, or my fingers or whatever.  In the meantime, all I will say is that I’m super impressed with myself because by using some internet sleuthing I was able to figure out how to get an audiobook onto my iPhone.  I’m a freaking genius.
