The Internet Kitchen: Running!
Big news everybody! I can finally freakin’ run.
It has taken almost two years and two knee surgeries, but just this week I started being able to run short distances (slowly) without huge amounts of pain.
I was actually almost to this point last year as well and then I think I just tried to push it too hard and ended up hurting myself therefore needing another surgery. So, I’m taking it really slowly, but it feels great to be able to do it again.
Speaking of running, if you didn’t see this article on the WSJ this week about running, it’s kind of a funny read. I’m not sure I agree with everything in it, but I do agree that it seems like running is really taking off as a past-time, but sometimes it does feel like people just like to think of themselves as runners. Oh, and then there is this Runner’s World retort which is even better.
And for the record, I’m firmly in that camp. I love the idea of being a runner even if I can only run 1/2 mile at a time at the moment.
I guess that means I should get a .5 bumper sticker for my car?
Lately I’ve heard of some new ways of cooking items I’ve cooked before so I want to try one this week. I won’t reveal the interesting cooking method until later in the week! You pick!
Rosemary and Smoked Salt Almonds – These look lovely and would be a great little table snack to have around during the holidays. I don’t imagine that they will last too long on any given table, but maybe it’ll keep the wolves at bay for a few minutes. (@ Love and Olive Oil)
How to Make Potato Chips – Speaking of different ways to cook stuff, this is an interesting way to make potato chips. I’m sure it works excellently and will try it the next time I make a batch. (@ Eat the Love)
Extra Crispy Skillet Stuffing – The Bitten Word gents are killing it this holiday season. I already bookmarked one of their recipes that I’m trying on my holiday menu. This one looks like a winner also! (@ Bitten Word)
