Real Simple Recipe, Possible Wedding Venue & a Race

Having Monday off for MLK's birthday allowed me to sleep in, walk Oscar twice, run 6 miles, go out to lunch with a friend, grocery shop, and plan a nice dinner.  Great day.  

I was searching around the Real Simple website and found a recipe for Chicken Cacciatore that looked easy and I already had most of the ingredients on hand.  

We served it over leftover Basmati rice and topped with grated Parmesan. The only change I made was to add yellow peppers to the sauce.  

This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Wedding planning has officially begun and we have made two visits to the same venue.  And currently dont have plans to visit any other places.  I guess you could say we really like it.  :)  

More info to come as we make some of the decisions!  Exciting stuff.

On the running front, I signed up for the George Washington Birthday Marathon 3-person Relay with my Dad and Kevin on Sunday, February 14th. (Valentines Day!)  I am so happy to have a race coming up so that I feel the pressure to train.  I took the middle, 7.3 mile leg, so as long as I keep up the 6 mile runs, I should be fine.  

Enjoy the rest of your Monday evening.

Have you ever done a relay before? They are a blast!

That would be an amazing place for a wedding. There are few places in the world that I love more than St. Michaels. In fact, I still hope to get married at the Hooper Strait Lighthouse...now, just to find a fiance. :)

That chicken is almost as pretty as that potential venue!

So glad you enjoyed your day off. I didn't get Monday off but am hoping to take Friday off. The venue looks incredible! Cannot wait to hear more about it. Love the idea of the Valentine's day team race!
