I had great plans to come home from work and bake these drumsticks while I went for a run. They had been marinating in buttermilk and garlic all day in the fridge. When I got home from work, they were still frozen. Wah wah wah.
Instead, I asked Mr. FS if he could handle this recipe for Huevos Rancheros Spaghetti that i had found in Oprah magazine. He’s not really a recipe guy. Don’t get me wrong, he makes a mean chicken nugget or box of Kraft mac and cheese. But he was game and he started by the pasta while I went on my run, and I fried up the eggs when I got home. Huevos Rancheros is my favorite Mexican restaurant dish, and I thought this recipe sounded delicious. It was. This picture is gross. The meal was not.
I was glad to get out and enjoy the unseasonably warm weather. I really love to run, but I have been struggling lately to get myself out the door, particularly since it is so cold and so dark in the morning. And if I don’t do it in the morning, it is near impossible to motivate myself to go in the evening after a tiring day of work, and with a tiring night of dinner, homework, baths, etc. ahead. But seeing my sister and her husband run 26.2 miles yesterday made me suck it up and go run 3 miles tonight. And I’m glad I did.
Now, I’m off to half watch the debate, half read funny celebrity tweets about the debate.
