I'm taking a short break in my meal preparations for Mother's Day. Mom & her boyfriend, my sister & her boyfriend, and my brother are all coming over for dinner in less than an hour.
Baby back ribs (dry rubbed for 1.5 days and slow cooked, then grilled)
Grilled white corn
Purple potato salad with bacon and hard-cooked eggs
Watergate Salad (we love our Jell-o salads!!)
Sundae bar with homemade chocolate and vanilla ice cream
Sweet traditional tea
Unsweetened jasmine papaya white tea
Copious amounts of wine
Did your invitation get lost in the mail?
I ran yesterday morning while it rained off and outside. I am really getting into Downton Abbey so I was kind of okay to be on the dreadmill. I was trying to get some stuff done early for today so I almost didn't do my 7 miler. But I was glad I ran for nearly an hour as it took off some of the edge before I got to work.
We were pretty busy with last minute Mother's Day shoppers. I was glad that the time went by quickly 'cause I was ready to have a day off!! I have to be at work tomorrow at 5am which means I have to wake up at 3:30am. Uggggggggggggh!! Gross!! Another reason to be on the search for my dream job. I'm over the terrible hours.... You fancy people with your M-F, 9-5--I am super jealous!
With such an early wake-up call, I have pretty low hopes of running tomorrow. I am off on Tuesday so it probably would be better to just wait until I am better rested. And hopefully if I get out early enough I can go for a longer run. We'll see. The good part about not training for anything is that I can just run whatever kind of run whenever I want. Yay!
