We did get snow last Friday. Texas snow. Which means if I scraped it off my car I might have had enough to fill a dixie cup.
The Cleveland girl in me knows the real thing, but this was still nice to look at.
It all melted later that same day, and the weekend was sunny and warm. Now we’re back to icy cold temperatures again, which means I’m huddled in front of the space heater about 98% of the time.
Supposedly, it’ll be back in the mid-60′s by Saturday. If anyone ever figures out Texas weather, please let me know.
I’m training for my second half marathon, which takes place in just over three weeks. My training is a lot less enthusiastic than my training for my first half-marathon, but I’m not as worried as I could or should be. Simply having a goal is almost as important as achieving said goal. And any activity that requires new shoes is a very good thing.
In other news, I’m considering buying a crock pot. I guess in food snob world, you’re supposed to call it a “slow cooker.” But seeing as I bought generic Velveeta the other day, I don’t think I can go so far as to call myself a food snob.
There are some potential setbacks to this purchase, though. I’m not 100% sure “vegetarian” and “crock pot” are three words that can be used in the same sentence. Furthermore, selecting the right one to buy has proven difficult.
Still, you’ve probably noticed that I haven’t posted many recipes lately. And that’s mainly because my meals the last few weeks have been quick, easy, go-to dinners that don’t really require recipes. After scouring the web, I have found a few cookbooks that make me think this crock pot thing could be a lifesaver — and perhaps even a blogsaver at the same time. If I can ever find the right one to buy… Suggestions?
