Last night I put in a good run at the clubhouse. I finished up two miles in a new record time for me. 19:38. I know that’s not a really great speed, especially when I told Nick I was proud of my accomplishment and his response was that he’d done 3 miles in 20:35. Boo you Nicholas for raining on my parade. Anyway, its a big deal to me and I’ll celebrate it
Did you guys see my fun sandwiches yesterday?? Here’s the cranberry sauce I was talking about.
1 Bag Cranberries
1 Navel Orange
½ Cup Sugar
1 Cup Water
½ Cup Chopped Walnuts (optional, but highly recommend)
Prep Time: NONE! Cook Time: 15 min Serves: Depends on use (serves 4 as a side dish)
Clean and rinse the cranberries ensuring there are no stems.
Peel the orange and slice into 1/4s, removing the seeds. (alternatively you can simply use the juice of one orange)
In a pot (Nick wanted me to call it a WOK – no joke), combine everything and cook on a medium heat until reduced to your desired consistency. The longer you cook it the less “chunky” it will be. You can also increase the amount of water based on your preference.
** For this batch, we did not use walnuts because I knew I was going to use this as a sandwich smear rather than as a “side dish.”
You can see a video of Mack describing the prep and cooking method here. It’s pretty cute, but then again maybe I’m biased. And yes, that is a Starbucks baby apron Mack is wearing and yes, it is signed by Howard Shultz. He signed it for me when I worked a shift with him at the Original Starbucks, kinda cool huh?!
Is anybody else excited for the weekend?? We’ve got the day ahead of us but tonight we are using our “date night” to go to the Ute’s game – I scored free tickets via twitter yesterday afternoon. Nice surprise!
Happy Saturday friends!
