The route was very scenic, cutting right through Johnson Park with the Raritan River on either side. It was another cold and windy, but thankfully, sunny day. We amused ourselves by watching the Canadian geese and their playful antics as we ran. All along, we met other runners, waving, smiling and heading in the opposite direction. I was told there was another group (training for different marathons) who met an hour or so earlier for their weekly long run, so there were people on the trail running anywhere from 3-22 miles.
Later, I visited Ulla and her 4 cute foster kittens (James, Merlin, Bandit & Miss Sophie). I am generally a dog person, but baby cats are too darned cute...especially when they are playful, soft and cuddly. What is it about a piece of string (or my hair!) that makes them so happy?
Sunday: After working up a sweat at spinning class, I cooked DH his favorite breakfast - Sabudhana kichidi (don't even bother to try and pronounce it), in an attempt to cheer him. The poor guy has developed elbow epicondylitis which is an overuse injury. He probably got it from the wrong drumming technique. He is down in the dumps that he is off drumming for awhile. See, runners are not the only ones suffering from unpronounceable overuse injuries!
Sabudhana kichidi is a concoction native to Western India. It is made of sago, potatoes, green chillies, cumin, grated coconut and lemon juice. This gooey dish is not really a favorite of mine, but it evoked satisfactory and gratifying noises from DH, so definitely worth the effort.
More cooking to stock up the refrigerator for the week. I anticipate another long week at work. So, what's new?
Pasta, chicken and broccoli (sorry for the lousy pic!)
And now, I really need to get off the blog and get some office-work done (yippee, I get to work on weekends too!) before the Oscars. Who are your favorites this year?
