I bet you can’t guess which meal was my idea and which was Jason’s.
or Millet “Mashed Potatoes” with Mushroom Gravy with baked tofu?
Sometimes Jason is a good sport when it comes to meals that I want cook, but stuff like millet mashed potatoes is a bit much, I think. His pasta primavera was really good. He sauteed some vegetables and mix them with Emeril’s pasta sauce (my favorite brand) and Morningstar Farms sausage crumbles.
My dish wasn’t quite as good. I spent some time looking for a millet recipe and found this. I decided to risk it and make the entire recipe in the hope that it would be good and I’d have some for leftovers.
The recipe said it made 4-6 servings and I’d say that it definitely made 6. This was okay – sort of bland. I used water instead of broth and maybe that contributed to the blandness. I also didn’t use any onions because we didn’t have any. Meh. I’ll eat the leftovers but I’m not going to be excited for them. Oh well. Know any good millet recipes? I really just preferred eating it plain to tell the truth.
I wouldn’t consider this a recipe fail, but I don’t think I’ll make it again. The pasta primavera was much, much better.
I’ve decided not to run a marathon next spring. It was 30 something degrees out last Saturday morning and I was reminded that running in the cold winter air is not really what I’d call fun. If I did train for a marathon, it’d be all winter. I know I live in the South and that it doesn’t get that cold here, but it still gets cold. Really.
So, instead, I will focus on running a faster 10K. I need a training plan. I never know what to do with myself when I don’t have one. I lifted some weights today and did a 30 minute speedwork run yesterday, alternating 3.5 mph with 7.0 mph.
This is a pretty boring post. My apologies!
