This week’s dinner menu

by lachicaruns on

How’s your weekend going? I got to run early Friday with el husbando for about a half hour, despite treacherous roads and sidewalks — the result of about a foot of snow that fell the day before and shut down state government offices and schools around the state.

Always fun to run with el husbando.

This morning was noticeably better, with mostly clear streets as I headed out at 7 with my BFFL Karen for a quick 2.5 miles before I headed out to run another 4 with my running group, Team Playmakers at Hawk Island Park in Lansing.


Pretty sky this morning.

The day was a bit windy but sunny and the paved trails were mostly clear. I would typically have run further but I’m trying to follow the Hal Higdon Half Marathon Training Plan (Novice) for my April half marathon and I’m trying not to over-do it.


Hawk Island Park.

I did take a half-hour nap this afternoon. Glorious. And I’m heading out shortly to see the movie Race with my Black Girls RUN! Lansing friends. Tomorrow morning should find me with friends who are mostly training for trail runs later this year.

All of this means that I’m just now getting to planning next week’s meals. And here they are:

  • Nachos with guacamole, salsa, lettuce and tomato
  • BLTs with chips and fruit
  • Lasagna, green salad, garlic bread
  • Sausage pecorino pasta, green salad, rolls
  • Arroz con pollo (chicken and rice), green salad

What are you having for dinner this coming week? Do you have any yummy recipes to share?

My name is Gisgie. It's pronounced geese (like the birds) and gee (like the letter). Now that we've met, I'm glad you're here. I'm an injury-prone runner who manages to find reasons to keep coming back to the road despite ongoing challenges. Most recently, I've struggled with piriformis syndrome. I'm currently winning. Most days.
