Just a mile and a quarter tonight, taking it easy before tomorrow's hill work. Once again, crazy fireworks.
Excellent Independence Day today, made a mixed veggie frittata, as well as some home fries with my new cast iron skillet and griddle. I improvised the recipe off one I found in a search, adding in some diced peppers and zucchini as well as squash. I shredded some sharp cheddar on top of it, too, just to give it a little something else. I also had some salsa, guacamole, and sour cream to serve with it. Good stuff.
My cast iron technique is getting really good! I've been practicing a lot using the techniques I found over at www.derekoncastiron.com. The site itself is lacking in recent updates, but the information is timeless and tremendously useful. The food came out well, and even the baby enjoyed the frittata!
Went and spent some time with my family this evening, had a good time playing some cards and introducing the baby to her first ever swing. All she wanted to do was pet the dog, but there you go, she enjoyed herself.
Feeling pretty good about this running streak, and considering lining up some half marathons heading into the fall. I'm thinking about running a smaller, local marathon this fall.
