Good Evening! Today was a low key, but busy day. I managed to squeeze in an 8 mile run in around 1:15 mins. But I couldn’t totally tell because I just used the clock on my ipod. It was nice to only run 8 miles (as opposed to say, 10) and I felt great afterwords. I drank watered down Gatorade and took two shot blocks at mile 4. It’s kinda awesome that I can run 8 miles pretty easily. Next weekend is a 12 mile run. Ah!
When I got back I was starving and enjoyed a cold chocolate milk and then Butternut, Chive and Cheddar Flat Bread. I used Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza crust, rolled it out with flour. Then I took roasted butternut squash, chopped chive, lettuce, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and grated cheddar cheese and combined in a bowl with a dollop of EVO. I spread the mixture over the dough and baked at 425 for 14 mins.
Delicious post run treat; This recipe is a keeper! We know that I love to put butternut squash on anything but the addition of the lettuce was a brilliant move. Cheddar is always amazing when melted on pizza dough. MMMM. Wonderful. The best part of finishing a long run is indulging in a nice treat.
There is something wonderful cooking in my oven right now. The smell is heavenly! Lets just say I’ll have a savory treat for breakfast tomorrow and to ship to my buddy Carolyn!
