Random cooking / running

Made it out for 7 miles today.  I decided to go a different way on the bike trail.  Ran near Cal Expo (the big expo in Sacramento that holds the annual state fair).  There is a lot of dry grass and such behind cal expo between the fairgrounds and the river.  A lot of fires break out in this area, some suspect due to transients.  On today’s run I went towards this area and saw the aftermath of one of the recent fires.  On my way back I headed towards Sac State.  Near the big pedestrian/bike bridge (Guy West Bridge) next to the school I saw a cool sight.  There were two young adult deer just grazing in the grass between the river and the berm.  I ran about 20 feet from them on the bike trail and they didn’t even spook.  One of them looked up at me warily as I ran past but the other one just kept right on munching on the dry grass.  Given that there is a lot of foot/bike traffic in this area, these guys must be so used to people that they know nothing bad is going to happen.

Sometimes I wish that I still ran with my phone since I could catch pictures of these interesting things I see.  I definitely enjoy not running with a running belt, but I know that I should carry my phone on my runs more often.

For lunch I didn’t have much around the kitchen so decided to make a quick bread.  I combined some AP flour with greek yogurt, garlic powder, salt, baking powder, chopped jalapenos from our raised vegetable bed, and water.  I let it sit for 20 minutes then baked it at 425 F after rolling it out flat.  I bake it for around 30 minutes.

I also sliced up some zucchini and coated it with olive oil and mixed in some chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and bread crumbs.  This I also baked at 425 F.  I then heated up some pastrami with mozzarella and topped the bread with it.


A little dry but not too bad.
