I took a few days off of blogging. My grandmother passed away earlier this week. She had been sick for a long time and she is certainly in a better place, but it’s still very hard to lose a loved one, especially so close to the holidays. Needless to say I haven’t felt like sitting down and typing.
I still don’t.
Here is a quick fitness update:
Sunday: 3 mile run at Cushing
Monday: 1 hr walk at Callahan state park
Tuesday: 3 mile run, treadmill
Wednesday: lazy day
Last night’s dinner:
Pork tenderloin, acorn squash, and cheesy broccoli with rice (side steamer).
The pork loins were buy one get 2 free!!! 2 free! So exciting. Needless to say we have a freezer full of pork.
I had never cooked acorn squash before, but thanks to Google it was very easy. I sprayed each half with cooking oil and sprinkled with some garlic salt. It took about 45 minutes to be tender. I am not 100% sold on it, but it was tasty enough. At this time of year, I will take any fresh veggies I can get. The pork on the other hand was juicy and full of flavor. I did cut off some of the fat (just some 🙂 ) so it wasn’t too chewy or greasy. It’s a nice change from the typical chicken dinner.
I took the next few days off from work to get ready for the emotional weekend ahead, and to spend some time with my family. Catch ya later.
