Just stopping by really quick today because we had to tell you that Papap got a race medal with us this morning at the Coronado Valentine’s Day 10K.
We did not do the 10K, we did the Mile Fun Run.
We have proof though.
Yep. Still smiling. Phew.
He even took us out to breakfast afterwards.
We love you Papap!
We’re so lucky he accepted our invitation to come run with us.We did invite him to go to Trader Joe’s in a bit, but he declined. Weird.
Actually, I’m pretty sure he’s going to enjoy the rest of the afternoon not being anywhere near us. I wouldn’t be surprised if he screens his calls.
We’ll recap the race in a bit, but the boys have it in their head that they’re going to write another guest post about it like our first family race, so, well you know, I guess I’ll let them do their thing with that.
In case you care how we spent our belated Valentine’s celebration, we went all out with cheap moscato from Trader Joe’s that turned out to be delicious by the way.
Why is it in a margarita glass?
Well, because Andrew was out picking us up a little Mexican food while I poured the wine.
If you don’t have the proper beverage to pair with the meal, then you must have the proper glass.
And the proper set up.
(On the couch watching Modern Family.)
And yes, that is not a paleo friendly meal, but after a long run my body really wanted a ginormous chicken burrito, tortilla and all and it was fabulous.
Oh and totally random, but I tried this Sweetriot dark chocolate bar the other day and it was darn delicious.
Expensive, but delicious.
I always want to go to a Farmer’s Market on Sundays. There is a small one close by, but nothing there is every too impressive.
Luckily we have some great friends at Frieda’s produce who take really good care of us.
We got these goodies delivered to our door.
Sangria artichokes that happen to be my favorite produce color. I’m planning on cooking them up tonight. I usually just trim artichokes and steam them in garlic lemon water on the stove. If there’s a better way to cook those babies up, can you fill me in?
We also got some Greengage Plums and Lemon Plums. We’re waiting for Lemon Plums to be just right.
For those unfamiliar (like myself), Lemon Plums are grown in Chile. Here’s the info Frieda’s sent us:
“They have a plump teardrop shape. Unripe, they are lemon-yellow and tart, but they gradually get sweeter and the blush goes from amber-orange to dark red when ripe. The taste is slightly floral, sweet and very juicy.”
We did get into the Greengage Plums from New Zealand though and they are mighty tasty.
Okay, well, we’re taking the rest of the day to REST and do some grocery shopping.
We’re going with a new motto in planning meals this week.
We’re all pretty pumped about it.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Anyone do a Valentine’s race this weekend?
What’s your favorite way to prep artichokes? I need some tips or ideas, preferably easy ones.
What are you up to today?
