Run to Stay Warm 2022

Today was a fun day outside. Every year there is a Run to Stay Warm race. You can do a 5k, 10k, or a half marathon. Proceeds go toward helping people pay their electricity bills, specifically people who are in financial hardship at risk of having their electricity shut off. I showed up early… waaaayContinue reading “Run to Stay Warm 2022”

Beef Stroganoff in Acorn Squash

I have made beef stroganoff many times, and I’m not sure I’ve ever followed a recipe. It’s a little different each time, and always delicious. How can you go wrong with meat, mushrooms, and cream? Well… I suppose things can go very wrong. But not with beef stroganoff! Going for the healthier option, I gotContinue reading “Beef Stroganoff in Acorn Squash”

Turkish Eggs, Post-Workout

I feel the need to warn you: The end of this post contains very pretty food. I love eating pretty, colorful food! It seems like it just tastes better. This is an unusual recipe, at least where I’m from. I tried it several years ago and was happy to go for it again. I gotContinue reading “Turkish Eggs, Post-Workout”

A Tribute to Sue Grafton & Kinsey Millhone (plus some ramblings)

Sue Grafton is one of my favorite writers. She died in 2017, but not before writing what is known as the “alphabet mysteries. It started with “A is for Alibi,” and went to “Y is for Yesterday,” coming out the year she died. I read somewhere her family says the letter z doesn’t exist inContinue reading “A Tribute to Sue Grafton & Kinsey Millhone (plus some ramblings)”

Bunches of Lunches

Here I am again, making lunches. I have a few days off (I took the weekend off for the Joyride, and then I have my normal days off), but I still need to eat lunch. I’m doing intermittent fasting, so my lunch is my first meal. I want it to be a tasty one! IContinue reading “Bunches of Lunches”

Dorena Dam Rail Trail 13Jun2022

Christine and I put on our helmets once again to hit the path. This time, we headed down to Cottage Grove, where they have a great path. I believe this used to be a train track and was converted to a bike path (rails to trails)? I want to look at this more, because IContinue reading “Dorena Dam Rail Trail 13Jun2022”

Roast Beef Roll-Ups

It’s time to prep lunches again! This time I decided to do something with roast beef. I saw something similar online, and it looked great… so why not? This is pretty simple: sliced roast beef, cheddar cheese slices, green chilis, and thinly slice red onion. I really wanted the whole green chilis, but my localContinue reading “Roast Beef Roll-Ups”

Old McKenzie Pass Hwy 242 West Side (oof!) 01June2022

Christine and I are back on Hwy 242, but coming up the west side this time. The west side is steeper and has many narrow hairpin corners. It’s quite the trek! The road is still closed to motorized vehicles, so we hopped on our bikes to enjoy the safety and beauty that is this highway.Continue reading “Old McKenzie Pass Hwy 242 West Side (oof!) 01June2022”
