Well, I’m all carbed up for tomorrow’s Reindeer Run 5K, part of Christmas in Little Falls. I confess to feeling a little nervous about the whole thing. I’m not even sure of my outfit. Regular readers know how I obsess over what I’m going to wear, with the final results far from reflecting the efforts involved. At least I found my “Dashing” t-shirt. It is a large reg t-shirt with a penguin and the word “Dashing.” Steven gave it to me for birthday one year when we lived in Georgia (he often gives me Christmas for my birthday). I think it is a perfect t-shirt for a Christmas run. Get it? “Dashing through the snow…”
I have a green long-sleeved running shirt to wear under the t-shirt. Actually, it’s kind of teal, but I think it is green enough for a Christmas run (which is not the same thing as when the light turns yellow as I reach it and I say, “Ah, it’s green enough”). I think silver leggings. Again, they are not really silver, kind of black shot with silver. OK, they’re grey. I’m going to call them silver. I hope I can find a pair of my winter running socks in the clean laundry (no, I have do not fold all my laundry promptly, sue me!).
I carbed up with angle hair pasta with basil pesto, topped with onions, rainbow peppers, and mushrooms, which I roasted in pesto. I perhaps started them a little too soon, with the result that some of the onions were a little crispy. I put the onions in first, while I cleaned and sliced the peppers, then I put the peppers in. I didn’t put the mushrooms in till the last twenty minutes or so. I put grated cheese on mine. It was a pretty good supper.
So how is this for my Lame Friday Post? A little about the race, a little bit of cooking. It will have to do. Perhaps tomorrow I will have things to report about Christmas in Little Falls. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
