So I ran by the lake for the first time this winter. I tried out my new under armor outfit (thank you Mom and Dad) and was completely warm. My biggest obstacle was the snow/melty snow/ ice/ slush on the sidewalks making me slip and slide a little. It was kinda like running in sand; therefore, I have concluded that SALT is one of the most awesome creations ever. The sidewalks that had been thoroughly salted were a nice oasis during my three mile run. So Rachel - 1 and Minnesota winter - 0
Also, I tried out a new recipe tonight, and it was a complete success. We had chicken thighs with a tomato/ green chili/ cumin/ peanut sauce - lots of Indian flavors. I am very proud of myself - I conquered running in Minnesota winter and Indian cuisine in one day.
From east Texas but live in the frozen north also known as Minnesota, I'm a PR gal pursuing a career in the performing arts industry and get my theater on in my free time. I love everything handmade, home-cooked, and completely creative.
