First, I just wanted to thank everyone for all the encouraging comments on my last post. It's wonderful to hear that so many others have found their passion for running too!
I know of lot of bloggers lately have been talking about how hot the weather has been lately. Well, I'm going to chime and say... IT IS WAY TOO HOT!! I have to run by 6:30 to avoid getting heat stroke, and even if I ride my horse at nine, we both come back sweating rain buckets. (Okay, I honestly don't really sweat, so there's really only a few drops, but for me, that's really sweating.)
Now, onto WIAW shenanigans!
I still had my green tea and apple to start. Although my green tea was probably more almond milk than tea... I didn't want anything hot after running! Actually, that's a lie. For some crazy reason, I was craving oatmeal! I wasn't too sure about that seeing as it was probably about 90 degrees outside, but I eventually caved.
Since I ended up having a pretty late breakfast, I decided to go with a snack in the afternoon as I knew we were getting some grilling on that evening. I had heard from my chemistry teacher that peanut butter + celery was a good combo, but I had never tried it myself. I did a bit of experimenting with celery + peanut flour paste. The verdict? Sooo tasty! I also baked up some banana bread that afternoon, so of course, I had to try some. ;-)
While my mom and I were preparing food for the grill, we snacked on one of our favorite foods: CHEESE!! My mom and I have quite a bit in common with one of our most important commonalities being our love for cheese.
Next came the grilled portion of dinner! Here's what my dad grilled for me:
And that concludes this WIAW! To be continued next week... same place, same time. Come on, didn't anyone else watch Lost in Space?
What did you eat on the Fourth?
Any other die-hard cheese lovers out there???
