As per usual, this weekend FLEW by!
We kicked off the weekend for drinks prior to my friends going to karaoke. I promised myself I wouldn’t stay late, but the hour flew by so quickly that I went to karaoke with them afterwards. Before I knew it, it was well after midnight and I had to get home!
As soon as my alarm went off at 6am, I regretted my decision to stay out so late; however, the bed didn’t win this round! I met up with my running friends and I was glad I did. After my run, I picked up a new shirt that was included with the price of Rogue X. I was so stoked to see that they had tank tops for the summer. My running t-shirts have been put on a hiatus until the fall when it cools down here.
I’m not sure what came over me in the afternoon but I decided the flank steak I had picked up for dinner HAD to be grilled! So after a few texts and a phone call from the boyfriend, and reading the manual, I finally got the grill on and prepped my dinner.
It was a little overcooked due to multitasking and losing track of time while on the phone with the boyfriend, but it was still amazing!
Yesterday morning, the forecast said there was a high of 100F, so I went for my workout at a local track as early as possible. It was the same workout I did with my cousins last weekend, but this time there was no speed walking, just straight out running. It kicked my butt!
While running errands, I was craving the salmon from Saturday’s trip to the grocery store, and picked up a cedar plank. I looked up some recipes and decided to just make it with some lemon juice, olive oil, diced garlic, and salt & pepper. I paired it with some spicy sriracha roasted broccoli that was prepared with Greek yogurt instead of mayo.
The salmon had a little more of a smoky flavour than I was expecting, but I was so glad it wasn’t as dry as it is when I made it on the George Foreman grill. Definitely worth the extra time it took to cook!
I hadn’t learned my lesson about multitasking from Saturday night, and I was prepping the hazelnuts for what I was going to make next:
Homemade Nutella! It isn’t nearly as smooth as the store-bought kind but it was so good that I had to put it away as soon as possible! I can’t wait to have it with some apple or banana slices!
How was your weekend?
