Derek and I bought a whole wheat baguette on our way to Screen on the Green on Friday night. When I picked it out I had this romantic vision of us peeling off pieces of the bread and pairing it with the delicious gouda I had also selected. I figured that was the “grown up” thing to do while sipping on red wine.
However, Derek knows me better than I do. While I was grabbing pricey cheese and a baguette, he was waiting in line for chicken tenders. Guess which of those three items was devoured first and which were left barely touched?
Yep, we left the picnic with almost a whole baguette and a lot of fancy cheese, but no chicken tenders. What? Those babies were good. My man chose well.
So, where does that leave me? With a lot of sandwiches to make.
Yesterday I made a tempeh/ kale creation, but today I went the classic veggie route.
Tomatoes, cucumbers, hummus, and fancy cheese. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Oh, and leftover rutabaga fries (with lots of ketchup!) on the side.
Let’s just say I’m not complaining about having the extra baguette in the house.
Swamp Bash & Dash Registration Giveaway!
Not going to lie, race registrations are one of my FAVORITE things to give away on the blog. I think it’s because as an avid runner and racer, I know how invaluable a free race can be! Especially when it’s a fun race like the Swamp Dash & Bash coming to Gainesville this October!
From the Swamp Dash & Bash site:
Looking for an event that challenges your stamina and strength to its limits? Then it’s time to get your underwear dirty–literally–at Swamp Dash & Bash! Maneuver your way through insane mud pits and challenging obstacles in the slimiest course around, and extend the fun by celebrating your triumph at our after-party.
Do you have what it takes to conquer the Swamp? This mud bath is no day at the spa!
I LOVE mud/obstacle races! I’ve done two (Champions Mud Bash and Savage Race) and love that they take the typical 5k and just make it fun. There’s generally no pressure of time and racers are encouraged to work together as a team to get across the finish line.
Unfortunately, I will be out of town the weekend of October 13th, so I will not be participating in this fall’s Swamp Dash & Bash but, lucky for you, the race team handed over one FREE race registration to give away to one local Meals and Miles reader!
If you think you have what it takes to race the Swamp Dash & Bash on October 13th in Gainesville, FL, leave a comment on this post with your favorite race costume by Wednesday, July 11th at noon and I will draw a winner during my afternoon post.
