Recipe for a perfect Saturday morning

Leave a comment

Get up early for a long run to beat the heat. Nine decent miles on the books. It was actually kind of cool this morning, contrary to current temps of 91!

With this morning’s run, I passed 100 miles for the month with a total of 100.6.

Next came post-run pancakes and coffee! Chocolate chip pancakes and Starbucks Caffe Verona! Yum!

After that we went to the farmer’s market. It was already pretty toasty by the time we got there at 10:30. We got some good stuff this week, some white potatoes and sugar snap peas. And for baking, a couple big zucchinis and Door County cherries! Not for the same recipe of course. Hopefully tomorrow I will be making some zucchini bread and cherry muffins.

Of course there was time to goof around by the capital too. Allie loves to run off and see how far she can get before we start yelling for her to come back. And she also enjoyed the flowers and water fountains. She apparently doesn’t mind the heat as much as Mama and Dada because it was hard to get her to start walking to the car.

The day got kind of weird though later… we went out to dinner and got home to find we couldn’t open the garage door. The power was out! Not good news when its 91 degrees! It came on about an hour and 15 minutes after we got home, thank goodness. It wasn’t too uncomfortable yet, but sleeping would have been tough without the AC!
