This is my favorite day of the week while training... the day before a long run (with the exception of Cupcake Reward Day. A girl has to look forward to a treat after pounding out miles on pavement). Enter beautiful, perfect, and tasty pasta. Yum...
What I really want is some homemade lasagna. Pickle loves the homemade sauce and houses it. But I figured the obscene amounts of cheese the recipe calls for wouldn't be good for a 12 mile run.
I wish I would have had time to stick my normal carbo loading meal: Lemon, Mint, and Zucchini pasta with a little bit of chicken.
Instead, Pickle and I got hungry and didn't have enough time to go home and cook. We had errands to run and my hubby was out at band practice (yeah, my husband's a rock star) so there was no one to rescue me and get dinner going. I took Pickle to Noodles and Company so I could have my tried and true back up meal of Japanese Pan Noodles with Grilled Chicken. I am proud to report that my little man (usually a little monster when out to eat) was positively the best little date ever for a Friday night. He was cuddly and gave me multiple smooches throughout dinner.
Top that, hubby. You're a pretty awesome date, but I've never seen you gush over me like Pickle did. :)
And for my last food tidbit, tomorrow is Cupcake Day! I can't wait!
