If you can't take the heat...

Get out of the kitchen!
Sunday's cooking failure...

Snapper Veracruz... A blurry mess!

That is Snapper Veracruz, basically Snapper cooked in a tomato sauce with onion, garlic, olives, and capers. The sauce was good, really really good, the fish was, in my opinion, UN-edible, hubby ate it. That isn't saying much (boys eat anything).  We purchased a whole fish from Dekalb.  Hubby cut it and and filleted it.  I seasoned it and baked it.  It was fishy.  Really fishy, and I guess seeing it go from whole fish to meal time kind of grossed me out.  I'm a meat eater, but I could really do without, and I try to not to put too much thought into it, or it makes my stomach turn.  Oh well... upward and onward. I have a whole turkey breast to cook this week, I'm sure I'll do much better with that!

Saturday morning, I planned a long run, remember? Well I woke up with some sort of stomach issue and didn't end up running until 1pm. I didn't feel great all day and only got in 6.5 miles.
 Also, it kinda killed most of the day. 

Sunday was much better.  Breakfast at the Flying Biscuit Cafe and the most amazing salad ever really made up for it.

Not my picture, Mine looked EVEN BETTER!

This is a BLT salad with Turkey bacon, fried green tomatoes, goat cheese, and some sort of AMAZING jalapeno cashew relish.
This salad was seriously legit. I am obsessed with salads especially creative unique one's, so whenever I come across a winner it really makes my day. I'm easy to please!

Add in a trip to the Dekalb Farmer's Market and I'm one happy chick.

Oh and the Yankees taking 3 of 4 at Fenway, just put it over the top!
Going into the All Star break with the best record in baseball, mean while, Pettite, Rivera, and Sabathia are injured??? PRICELESS!

Alright, I really dropped the proverbial ball last week, as far as running goes.  Time to get back into the groove.

Happy Monday!
