Well, I have ran a few times this week, including a nerve-wracking workout of a 6 mile tempo run. Just, ya know, to make me extra nervous about holding that pace for 26.2 miles. FUN.
I completely reorganized my closet. Moved a dresser into there, moved a bookshelf out. Switched out some shelves.
I have finished my kitchen painting project (with the exception of the touch-ups of my regular paint that I need to do):
Before: Beige HELL.
After: Less Beige.
Most important lesson I learned from that project:
Yes, Amy. It is safe to get on top of your refrigerator.
(Important: Have your boyfriend do it first, though. Just in case.)
I have been shopping online, trying to figure out if I'm going to buy a new top for the marathon, or if I'm just going to wear something that I already have.
This jacket from Athleta is totes adorb.
(Ruffle along the zipper and all).
I got this half-zip top for Christmas. So, I might just wear it.
Bitches like purple.
I have also been experimenting in the kitchen a bit. Last night I cooked seitan for the first time ever. And last week, I made the best meal:
Faux CRAB CAKES!!!! OMFG!!!!
With tartar sauce!
Last month when we were in NYC, I dragged The KoB and our friends Jeff and Melissa to my favorite restaurant in NYC: Blossom. The thing is... the only meat I truly miss is seafood. So, when I saw Cape Cod Cakes as an appetizer on the menu, I ordered them. And holy shit, people... THEY WERE DELICIOUS. I was obsessed with finding a recipe and trying it at home and lo and behold I found a delicious recipe:
Now, it wasn't EXACTLY like the Blossom Cape Cod Cakes, but it was still really awesome and also really easy to make and cheap. (I feel like anytime I find a new recipe to try, I end up spending $50 bucks on shit like arrowroot powder and vegan worchestershire sauce. It can get ridiculous). These cakes are going into rotation IMMEDIATELY.
I should probably make them again next week. Otherwise, with the taper crazies/stress/nervousness, this is likely to be me:
What's that? Now you're craving jalapeno poppers and pixie stix?
What kinds of stuff do you during a taper? No, really. I need ideas, I've got another week of this shit to go.
