I think I'm going to celebrate National Running Day with Yogurtland. I swear I love that stuff. It reminds me of my high school days when I worked at Zack's Frozen Yogurt. Best job EVER!! Best boss ever too!
Have I mentioned how hot it is these days? It's HOT! At 5:00 am when I started my run it was 75 degrees. That may not sound hot but with the humidity it is. That's why I run so early. I've never paid so much attention to the weather until I started running. It's weird.
For anyone who reads this blog on even a semi-regular basis this will come as no surprise to you. I can't cook. Just when I think maybe I'm getting better I screw something up. I saw a recipe for Mediterranean Quinoa Salad & it looked so good so I tried it. Here's where the problem came in. The recipe listed the ingredients as 1 cup uncooked Quinoa, 2 cups water. OK fine. Then the directions say "Fill a medium pot with water". Now, I am very technical when it comes to cooking. I do EXACTLY what the recipe says. So this means I filled the pot up with water & added the Quinoa. When it was finished cooking I had WAAAY too much water. I stared at it awhile. I asked Dean for advice. I stared at it some more. I tried to ladle out the water. Then I took his advice & through it away & started over. I figured out that I could've made this salad much quicker & without all the trouble if the recipe would've just said "Cook the Quinoa according to the directions on the box, then add vegetables". sigh. It ended up being very good & something I'll make again. Maybe one day I'll get this cooking thing down. Or at least be able to follow directions better.
