Sasha has been losing teeth left and right, which means she has also been chewing everything. The one upside to this is that her ears have been up more than down lately! Shepherds ears are known to go up and down but typically if they aren’t up by a year they won’t go up. A Shepherd just doesn’t look the same with out their ears up! So any who I took her out yesterday after work to run around for a while so she would relax and let me make dinner. It was successful and I managed to snap an amazing picture of the little Batdog. The first picture is from when we were watching Bachelor and she was nose deep in a jar of peanut butter. (Do not read this line if you didn’t watch the show – spoiler alert – I am super happy with the two girls that are left, I was never a fan of AshLee, she seems WAY to fragile)batdog2I had bought a bunch of stuff to make a big tofu curry bake thing but when I found out I’d be camping out at the boys house I decided to wait until next week to make that. It would take a little while and frankly I didn’t have the time to do that with Sasha wanting to chew everything in site. Dinner ended up being roasted brussel sprouts, some collard green chips, and a pork chop. My new favorite thing is trying to make chips out of any and everything. I set the oven for 400 degrees and tossed 1 cut up collard green leaf (those things are huge!) and 5 quartered brussel sprouts in a tiny bit of EVOO, salt, and pepper (the boy’s spice cabinet is pretty basic…). I baked for about 10 minutes, removed the collard greens, and continued cooking the sprouts for a few more minutes. The picture of the left is my lunch for the week! Pulled pork with broccoli, nom nom nom. See even though I’m not really paleo any more my main meals are almost always full paleo. It’s just how I roll.
pork2Training last week ended up being pretty good. Thursday‘s run was horrendous but Sunday‘s long run made up for it just by being enjoyable. I’m looking forward to running today, I love the 3 mile runs during the week because they are little confidence boosters. My schedule will be pretty tight this week with letting Sasha out over lunch and being in another office setting up for a workshop this week but I’ll figure out a way to make it happen. Where there is a will there is a way right?
