Pasta Weekend

Posted on February 13, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

My weekend was book ended by yummy pasta meals.  Friday night, I made arugula pesto. Unfortunately, it was a little too overpowered by garlic. I wanted to put it back in the food processor and mix in more cheese and arugula, but didn’t have the energy to use the food processor again.  I mean, I still ate two helpings of pasta with the pesto, but I smelled like garlic all weekend.

Saturday night, Justin and I went to dinner at Buck’s Fishing and Camping.  We used a Living Social deal there for 50% off.  I ordered the cheeseburger with jack cheese and spicy mayo. Justin got the sirloin steak.  My burger was good, his steak was amazing, it had a great amount of butter and the wood grill just made it taste so good.

We finished our night with a little beer pong at a friend’s house.  Justin and I did not win, sadly, but I did come out with a win at Wii bowling!

Sunday was my longest run yet, 7 miles.  I ran from River Road down the Capital Crescent Trail to Georgetown.  It’s such a nice and peaceful run.  I was worried about the cold, my knee and a little bit about the mileage.  The cold was fine, the distance was good (except when I thought I was almost at 5 miles and really I had only done 4, that was annoying) and my knee held up for most of the run. It hurt a little, but not to the point of not being able to run.   I got home and foam rolled and stretched it out.  New goal – 10-15 minutes of stretching pre and post run and continue with more foam rolling.

I found a place to grab a hot chocolate before Justin picked me up in Georgetown.  I also scooped up a yummy baguette and a hot dog smothered in cheese and bread.  I don’t have a picture of the hot dog, but the baguette appeared for some pre dinner snacking.

Justin made a tasty pasta dish with left over marinara sauce from the mozzarella sticks last weekend.  He also melted an entire block of Cabot cheddar cheese in a saucepan to mix with the pasta…brilliant new way to make mac and cheese!

Please note, that is not the same pesto from Friday night – I didn’t need to continue to enhance my garlic smell already.  I would like to continue with the carbo loading today, but I may just have to settle for a salad.
