Sometimes I get a craving for comfort food. This is my go to cookbook for some Irish home cookin.
If you ever find yourself in Dublin you need to go to the Avoca cafe for lunch. They have a really cute store, a deli and an awesome cafe. My Mom got me their cookbooks a couple of years ago and I love it. I decided I needed to make some Shepherd’s Pie. It’s a hug in a dish.
If you’ve been reading this blog – and I hope some people have – you might notice that I don’t eat a ton of meat. The meat that we used for this came from our local farmer’s market. I don’t want to sound all hippy-dippy but I like to know where the meat I eat comes from and how the animals were raised. SLC has an awesome farmer’s market that runs from May to October. We got to meet the actual farmer – complete with cowboy hat – and the meat tastes great. Sermon over.
Last night we watched Don Jon with Joseph Gordon Levitt, Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore. Good movie but not for anyone who can’t deal with porno images flashing on screen.
Also had a glass from my Bota box – not just for camping!
Sunday is long run day. 7 miles scheduled. I managed 7.33 miles at 8.31 min/mile pace. Felt mostly good. My knee still feels a little stiff. Not sore just a little uncomfortable. I’m hoping the exercises my PT gave me will strengthen my defective glutes and sort out my knee pain. I also got to wear short shorts – 56F at the start of the run.
After a long run you need to refuel. Breakfast burritos yum. Plus the obligatory avocado, jalapenos and weekend smoothie. Did a power yoga class this evening. Good news: my knee can tolerate yoga!
Total mileage: 21.38 miles
