Three Things Thursday

23 06 2011

Chloe got real with you all yesterday, and shared some tough stuff about the realities of training. In the spirit of “keeping it real” (but, I’m going to lighten it up a bit!), I’m going to participate in a little “Three Things Thursday,” which I’ve seen on a few other blogs lately. So, here are three random facts/musings/experiences aka THINGS that I wanted to share with you all! Happy almost Friday!

1. I’m pretty pumped about racing Rock Hall this weekend, and I may even employ some strategies from this article to make me a Triathlon Ninja 🙂 But I may be ever so slightly more excited about joining Chloe, Liz, Amy, Katie, and Lauren after our race for CRABS!!! Growing up, I loved going crabbing with my family. Then my mom would cook up the crabs in butter and garlic. YUM!  ‘Round these parts, they use Old Bay seasoning on the crabs, which I find tasty. But, I’d take mom’s recipe over Old Bay any day!

2. Last weekend, I was supposed to go to Florida to run the Champions Mud Bash 5K with my boyfriend. All the details didn’t pan out for me to get down there to race, but he raced (his first official 5K! Whoot whoot!) and filmed his experience. Check out his video on You Tube!

Doesn’t this look like fun?

Now I really want to do a mud run!! Who’s with me?

3. To me, grilled cheese and tomato soup is the ultimate comfort food. I remember my mom making a bowl of Campbells (condensed) with milk, and a gooey grilled cheese sandwich (made with Velveeta) on white bread. Perfect for a sick day or a rainy Sunday afternoon. Ok, so I try to steer away from those processed foods nowadays, but something about them is just SO COMFORTING.  So, when I saw that The Big Cheese Truck was going to be parking by my office for lunch time, I was stoked! All of the options looked delicious, and since I have a terrible time making decisions, especially when it comes to food, my colleague and I decided to share two of the sandwiches. I ordered the Chevre – Chevre with lemon fig spread on multigrain, and she got the Midnight Moon- goat gouda, caramelized onions on multigrain.

O.M.G. They were fantastic! I REALLY liked the Chevre (its the half on the left in the pic above). It was creamy and light, with just the right touch of lemon flavor. I am definitely going to try to recreate!

I also ordered a cup of gazpacho:

I love that it came in a brown bag too, like a kid taking his lunch to school 🙂 My grown up grilled cheese and tomato soup lunch:

Be still my heart. The truck visit made my week 🙂

Question of the day: What’s one interesting thing you’d like to share about your week?

P.S. We’re looking for guest posts! If you’d like to write a guest post for us in the next week or two, please shoot us an email 321delish at gmail dot com!

I’m going to be like one of those bunnies chasing the carrots- except I’ll be chasing crabs!

Yes! I’ll see if I can find one!

Ever been to Cheesetique?

It NEVER comes up to Tenley, so I was super excited when it did come up!

Oh my gosh that sandwich looks SOOOO good!! And now on top of being sad that I can’t do Rock Hall, I am sad that I am missing out on CRABS, TOO. Tears!! 🙂

Can you share your mom’s recipe for crabs? It sounds pretty good and I always like to try new ways to cook things.

Honestly, I think she just melted some butter in a fry pan with some garlic, and sauteed the crabs (de shelled, broken in half) until they were cooked!

Stuffing my face with friends sounds like an excellent way to spend my Saturday to me

I saw the grilled cheese truck a couple times over by Union Station on Mass right near my office. Everytime I see it I want one so bad, but have yet to try one yet. Grilled cheese is the best!

Good luck at Rock Hall!!!

I’ll do a mud run with you! It’s on my list. There are a lot around here, apparently…

I have never had anything from a DC food truck. They never ever come to Foggy Bottom, and definitely not all the way to the stupid Watergate. Mission — make this happen. That soup/sandwich combo looks AMAZING.

Start following them on Twitter, and then pester them! I think that’s how the cheese truck came up to Tenley. Lots of people were requesting it!

the BIG CHEESE TRUCK?!?! how have I never heard of such a thing!? I want!

And Chloe, I’m just catching up, but your post yesterday was right on. This shit is hard and can be very, very lonely! Good luck with the knee and keep your eye on the prize. A month away is no time at all- you’ll be tapering before you know it!

Hey ladies! 🙂 So sorry you didn’t make it down the race Steph but I can’t wait to watch your bf’s video! So neat!

I LOVE crabs and I can’t wait to be back in MD where I can get some awesome ones! I miss them so much when I’m landlocked in the midwest! 😛

This week has just been a lot of packing up, and I can’t wait until we’re finally settled in a new place – wherever that may be! 😛

If you end up in DC, we’ll have to meet up!

I hope all you ladies have great races this weekend and a good feast afterwards! I’ve been following the big cheese truck on twitter for a while but have yet to get lunch when they are in my neighborhood. I will have to make it happen.
