So yesterday I said I was going to go run 400m repeats. I’m a big fat liar.
I drove over to Kyle’s house, and from there we walked to the local high school to use their track. Damn kids were having a football game!
So Kyle and I did an upper body workout instead (something I have been majorly neglecting) and today I am paying for it. It hurts so good.
BUT I was also really bad and broke Rule #1 in the Runner’s Handbook: Thou shalt not wear running shoes for activities other than running. I wore my running shoes for the workout and for some errands.
Yesterday Kyle and I also cooked dinner for his family. He had found a Pad Thai recipe a while back and really wanted to try it. So we decided to cook a Thai feast!
We learned a valuable lesson: always make a grocery list.
We drove about 20 minutes to an Asian food market to get a lot of the spices. After that, we drove to Trader Joe’s (on the way home) to buy the produce and meats. We stopped off at my house so I could change shoes (ha!) and then we realized we forgot some items.
We drove to Safeway to pick up said items. Kyle then realize we had forgotten a spice at the Asian food market. We knew it wasn’t at Safeway or Trader Joe’s. Off to the Asian food market we went…
We got back to Kyle’s house and started prep work. And then we realized we forgot more ingredients…luckily Kyle’s mom was already out so Kyle asked her to pick up the missing items.
6 grocery store trips later…
- Chicken and tofu Pad Thai
- Beef and tofu Pad Thai
- Cucumber salad
- Chicken satay and peanut dipping sauce
- Chicken curry
So delicious and yes, we had a buttload of leftovers.
How many times have you had to go back to a grocery store for ONE meal?
