The past few days have been really hot in the Midwest, which always leaves me with a craving for lemonade. In the past I would have made some Crystal Light lemonade and drank buckets of it all summer. However, I am trying to get away from large amounts of artificial sweeteners, so yesterday I made some fruit water instead.
I just sliced a lemon and an orange squeezed the juices out, and added about a half gallon of water.
The results was refreshing, flavorful and fantastic. I bought that super convenient container at Target for the cheap. I love that I can leave it is my fridge and fill up my glass whenever I like.
The water was even fruitier this morning, but I wouldn’t leave it in there for more than a few days. I know, from my extensive experience with sangria, that it can start to taste a little peely after a while.
Courtney and I conquered a sweaty, hilly, hot 9 miles yesterday. It felt so good to have my long run done and over with and the rest of the weekend ahead of me.
My before run breakfast was a little desperate for anything fast, but I felt fueled for the run. I think it was probably the hotdog from the night before.
After I cooled down from my run I made myself a breakfast scramble. It was a different flavor but hit the spot.
Lunch was a tuna salad with veg.
Dessert was delish. A Blue Bunny coconut fruit bar.
Dan and I met our friends Meghan and Nigel to celebrate Meghan’s birthday at a new to us restaurant on the plaza called Gram and Dun.
We were big fans. I ordered the Bison Sloppy Joe and ate half of it, along with a handful of the chips. Rich, but delish.
Dan also ordered the crazy good dessert, which was similar to a homemade snickers ice cream bar. I snagged a few bites (8), but didn’t get a chance to snap a photo.
Good food. Better company.
