|Trail Run Overlook - Ski Jump, Clouds, and Colors|
Saturday morning, four of us from the neighborhood went for a girls trail run. I hadn't been running for weeks due to knee pain from my 12 mile "Wasatch100 pacer test run". I have been able to cycle, but miss the running and was anxious to test myself. Things were good for the first 3 miles of uphill, but the pain returned as soon as we started down. Ugh, so frustrating. I slowed to a walk and took the shortcut back to the car. It was still a great day with awesome girlfriends and amazing fall colors.
Did we walk or ride this?
We went out for a few hours on the road bikes Sunday afternoon with all 3 of us trying to "out-injury" each other. Injuries always provide good excuses but nothing was serious and we all survived. In addition to the cold mornings and dark evenings, the shoulder season has arrived and the quiet is a nice change.

Today I cooked the zucchini and potatoes from last week and this afternoon picked up my new bundle. You can see the collard greens, peaches, figs, and apples below along with pears from last week.

There are a few blogs that I frequently visit for recipes, but tonight used a new site that might be a keeper.
|Beginnings for a Peach and Roasted Beet Salad|
First off was a batch of quinoa and collard greens in the rice cooker. I usually use one of the Daily Garnish recipes each week. Then roasted beets for a peach and beet salad I'll make tomorrow. Finally, I sauteed the beet greens with walnuts and raisins. Dinner was a spoonful of everything and delicious. Nothing beats fresh organic produce!
