WIAW #53: Spring Beach Weekend Eats

This WIAW is all about my eats from a weekend at the shore. It won’t be what you’d expect from a typical beach weekend, because even though it was April it was actually snowing on Saturday and lots of the boardwalk eateries were shuttered, but you will see lots of eggs, and of course, some ice cream. Because that happens no matter which way the weather goes.

Weekly Workouts and Updates 4/4-4/11

Another Monday, another round of my weekly workouts and updates. This week featured a few of my regular work morning runs in Central Park, along with a couple of weekend jaunts in some new-to-me running territory, the boardwalk in the beach town where my boyfriend grew up. I’ll do a quick rundown of those before getting to the rest of the weekend events!

Five Things Friday: Sweet Summer Study Snacks

I’ve shared my favorite frozen treats, fruits, and such with you before, but while I was studying for the past few months, there were a few discoveries that lent a bit of sweetness to life and made the hours more bearable. These summer study snacks would be awesome additions to anyone’s summer list, whether you’re actually studying or just want some new go-tos. All will definitely remain in my own repertoire! So I’m linking up with Heather and Katie to share them with you this Friday.

WIAW #17: Summer Salads, Seafood & Sundaes

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

 

Rabbit, rabbit. Okay now, welcome to the first WIAW of July! Studying for the bar means less time for kitchen creativity. But I still managed to squeeze in lots of summery eats to say farewell to June yesterday and usher in July, from salads to seafood to a scrumptious sundae. My day began with a pre-run snack, which was relatively small. Just a muffin and some blueberries with half a mug of Green Mountain Blueberry coffee. I was only planning to run 5-6 miles and wanted to get out the door. Usually I’d skip the snack for a morning like this, but for some reason I woke up with my stomach growling and knew it wouldn’t be a good idea.

Five Things Friday: Fruity Fun and Sunny Runs

Hello everyone, and happy almost-weekend! It’s time for another round of Five Things Friday, which as usual will focus on running and eats – but jazzed up by summer sun and cravings.

1. Summer Fruits: Whether berries, melon, or stone fruits, I’m constantly craving fruit. I’ve always been big on fruit, but in the winter I mostly stick to apples and bananas because that’s what’s available locally, so I love it when juicy strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, perfectly ripe peaches and plums, and mouthwatering melons are in season. I happily eat all of these unadorned, but sometimes I’ll get inspired to whip up a recipe involving them, like an oatmeal cake or frozen parfait. Peaches n’ Cream or Strawberry Fields, anyone?
