Adulting Sunday

It’s so unfair that life and adulting get in the way of such a lovely day as Sunday!

Exercise:

I met up with Dennis and Brenda again this morning for a run. We did laps around Brenda again as she’s still working her way through the learn to run program. I got just over 5km done.

I ended up going out again this evening. Amazingly I felt so good and made a personal best in my 5km time of 31:47. I am getting closer to my goal! When I looked down to turn my tracker off, it said I was doing a 4:22/km pace- hopefully that’s true as it’s amazing for me!

Cooking:

I am mainly a snacker but decided I should try making some of the actual meal recipes from my current cookbook- Sylvana’s Gluten Free and Dairy Free Kitchen: Timeless Favourites Transformed. I tried the Homemade Fettuccine with Sausage, Broccoli Rabe and Parmesan. I can’t say I gave it a great test as I didn’t make the fettuccine but rather bought pasta. I also couldn’t find broccoli rabe and was a little disappointed she didn’t give an alternate suggestion. I also bought a ton of cheese today, but not parmesanšŸ¤£. I’ll say it looked good and was easy and I’ll let you know how my kale and sausage pasta tastes tomorrow.

Products:

I did buy a lot of cheese today! I tried three new kinds for dinner.

I had Sheese vegan mature cheddar style slices. I found it had a sharp taste to it, but quite a rubbery texture:(

Next I tried Chipotle Cheddar Style Wedge by Nuts for Cheese. This had a nice kick to it, but was soft like a cream cheese.

Finally I tried the Nuts for Cheese Smoky Artichoke and Herb Cheese. This had a tang to it and was even softer than the cheddar variety.

I would buy the Nuts for Cheese items again for a charcuterie board, but wouldn’t bother with the Sheese again.

Eating:

Speaking of food, as long as I maintain this, I’ll get to colour in another square today. I’ve had:

Brunch: steak ( makes my mom worry less about my iron)

Late lunch: Mac and cheese

Dinner: cheese and cucumber

Knitting:

After a quick cleaning of the important parts of my condo, and all my laundry, I have spent most of today knitting on my Not a Boring Sweater second sleeve. I actually finished and got the ends woven in. Here it is:

Well that’s it for my day!

Have fun!
