The weather has been perfect lately - 70s, sunny, breezy, low humidity. Yesterday evening, Kevin and I headed over to the park to play some tennis. We only played one set, but I beat him 6-2. His bruised ego caused him to be a little grouchy on the walk home. ha!
I put together a quick and easy crock pot meal while I was home during the day - Chili! I know it is almost summer and chili is soo last season, but I just threw together what I had on hand.

This morning, I took a short walk/run with Oscar in the park. I noticed a girl riding the inner park loop on her road bike and I decided to be a copycat. I walked my bike 2 blocks to the park...and hopped on to ride the inner loop a few times. It was a great ride and when I came home, I decided to make the "green smoothie" that I have been seeing everywhere!
Green Smoothie Ingredients
- 1/2 banana
- large handful of baby spinach
