Happy Friday! I am so ready for the 3-day weekend! Especially since it rained all day again today, but a little sunshine is in the forecast. To start the weekend, I grabbed a new beer I picked up at Whole Foods last weekend, Pete’s Wicked Strawberry Blonde Ale, and it’s pretty good! It has a slight strawberry flavor, but not too strong to be considered sweet, girlie beer.
I also tried a new dog food on Leela I also grabbed at Whole Foods, V-Dog, mixed with her regular food.
I wasn’t expecting it to be a hit because she’s not a fan of dry dog food or dry treats. She did eat a few pieces, but left most of it in the bowl and dropped a few pieces on the floor while separating out her regular wet food. :-P I guess I need to try soaking it in water or veggie broth to be softer for her next time. That or look for a vegan wet dog food.
For dinner I dug my spiralizer out to try spiralizing some of the pathetically small zucchinis I had.
It worked, but I got a lot of noodle bits. I can’t wait for zucchinis to be in season here and the monstrously huge ones can be purchased from farmer’s markets.
Anyway, I made Gena’s Alfredo sauce using hemp seeds instead of cashews because I didn’t have cashews and I like the higher protein content in hemp seeds.
It coated the salad nicely for raw zucchini alfredo for dinner.
I added a few dill sprinkles to the salad for a little more flavoring and it went very well with the sauce.
My weekend is shaping up to be pretty busy with another long run, massage, dinner out with my sisters and maybe a little shopping. Truthfully I’m looking forward getting the half-marathon over with, training in the winter weather here has been challenging without access to a treadmill and scheduling long runs over the weekend it not easy since they can be so time-consuming and energy draining. It’ll be nice getting back to a less-intensive running schedule.
Any plans for the weekend? Do you get Monday off?
