For my birthday this year, my parents got me a kitchen item I was in desperate need of... a slow cooker! I have an entire recipe of slow cooker suppers to make, so this was a must have:
Lentil and Mixed-Vegetable Casserole. This was my first time ever making lentils myself, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I can only think of a handful of times I've eaten them before - all at Indian restaurants. I must admit - it wasn't the greatest.
In other news, I went running after work today. Unfortunately, I was experiencing quite a bit of pain in my feet. Both Achilles' and the bottom of my left foot were really aching throughout. After 20 minutes, I decided I should stop and stretch. When I started running again, it only took about 2 minutes to see that the pain wasn't gone. So, I decided to play it safe and walked home. I'm glad I did, because my feet hurt the entire way... and my right foot actually went entirely numb. Now that I'm home they still hurt, so it's time to bust out the ice packs.
While I ice, I'll be watching the SEASON FINALE OF THE BACHELORETTE. Who will Ali choose? I'm so excited to find out. Stay tuned for a sweet recap post tomorrow... trashy tv tuesdays returns!
