Since we are building a new house, we went to Ikea to order our entire kitchen. We decided to basically get EVERYTHING from there--including the appliances. We drove about 90 minutes into Atlanta to get to the Ikea there, and arrived when they opened around 10. We were finished
a gazillion years 4 1/2 hours later. This isn't us walking around for hours picking things out, keep in mind. This is us standing in one place in the kitchen department at a computer talking to the staff to go over the kitchen cabinets and logistics of it all. Lunch was a long time coming and the second we were done I basically sprinted over to their restaurant to eat. I got a veggie wrap and tomato veggie soup:
|Does that spoon look dirty to you?|
I was pleasantly surprised about the wrap. It was full of mung bean sprouts, cucumber, carrots, and onions. I saw a white sauce in the wrap and was slightly dreading a mayonnaise drenched, soggy wrap. Instead, it was a really nice mild yogurt sauce, maybe with a hint of basil? And no soggy wrap, bonus!
Since I was in Ikea I picked up a some rye crisp breads. For dinner I topped them with some sliced ham and salad mix. A little balsamic and it was the perfect quick meal! A side of green beans rounded it out:
Today's run was 5.5 miles outside in what I would have to say was perfect weather. Warm, cloudy, a slight breeze. Ran them in 51:30 (9:21 pace), and felt great!
You know you have one--Ikea stories? I swear when I go in there for a lamp I leave with a couch and some rugs instead. Yikes!
What is the perfect running temperature/conditions for you?
