Brisk! -3C° fun in the snow run. A little bit of slipping and sliding as I got through my neighbourhood, the sidewalks were dangerously icy but once I got to the main road conditions were much better.
Some friends came over last night for raclette which is a favourite winter staple around here. It’s fabulous and fattening! So my 20k run today was not an option.
It looks something like that. Basically you melt cheese in the little Teflon dishes and pour it over potatoes you can add other things as well. We had peppers, mushrooms, onion and an assortment of charcuterie. It was delicious!! Great winter mountain food, not to forget fondue and tartiflette also popular dishes in our region.
So, run I did!
Some great landscapes to admire as I skipped along!
Got home after two hours of traipsing through the cold and snow and had a SERIOUS case of runger. I am usually ok after a run with a drink and a little snack but not today! Oh my, I saw all the leftovers and thought….hmm…peppers, onion, mushrooms and potatoes would make an awesome omelette! Yes. Yes indeed. But after I had a banana, 3 clementines, two slices of bread with jam and two chocolate chip cookies and an extra piece of chocolate!!!! What the hell??? Famished! Hungry like a wolf!
Ah well, food is good and I feel great so it’s a good day! Here’s a poem that caught my eye as I was skimming through the best american poetry of 2016 and thought it nice to take my mind off the cold.
