In an attempt to save money on groceries and avoid a trip to the store, I tried shredding savoy cabbage instead of romaine or spinach for my salad.
Fail. I usually try to use dressing sparingly but I had to dump extra on to mask the flavor of the raw cabbage.
Lesson learned: just go to the store and save the cabbage for potstickers. I will say that it did keep me pretty full for most of the afternoon, though.
Last night was a softball game and trip to the bar afterward for a beer and a shared sandwich. I haven’t played much softball this summer (my first position is babysitter) so when I do play for any length of time, I’m sore as hell the next day. Last night I felt a twinge in my left quad while jogging out to right center field. Not cool. This morning when I woke up I was stiff, tired, and in no mood to get my four miles in.
There’s still a chance I can go before it gets dark, but I’m waiting for baby relief to arrive (he’s at, yes, another softball game). I can’t wait until this damn season is over. It really screws up our running schedules.
