1. The Kitchn (@thekitchn) tweeted out these recipes for pretzel-crusted brownies today, and I think I'm officially obsessed. Pretzels and chocolate in brownie form? Yes, please.
2. Other things I'm officially obsessed with? This month's issue of Everyday Food. I subscribed to the magazine on my Kindle Fire, and I'm loving the easy e-access. Plus, the magazine never fails to inspire -- and the recipes all sound so good.
3. This is happening on Sunday, and I think I might be able to convince D that we should cough up the $15 each and go. The event will be the first Farm & Food Fest held in Philadelphia, and will offer attendees the chance to "Meet the farmers, sample delicious locally-made products, and attend cooking demos and consumer-focused workshops." Sample delicious locally-made products? I am so there.
4. D and I are signed up to do a five-mile "race" on Saturday morning. (The "race" is in parentheses as I don't think I've ever actually "raced" before; nor will I this Saturday; I'm more in it for the fitness aspect (and maybe a PR here and there) than the hope of ever placing.) This weekend's run is called "Halfway to Broad" as it's basically a training run for the 10-mile Broad Street Run, which we are also signed up for. Long story short, however, I haven't quite started to train yet for either run. (Or that other 10-miler I'm set to do in less than a month's time in D.C., if you're keeping track.) Fingers crossed that all this cross-training (spin, Body Pump, Butts & Guts, yoga) I'm doing translates into running! But, given that I've trained for previous runs with a lot of cross-training and not so much running, I'm not too worried about it. However, I probably ought to start pounding the pavement a little bit, too, just so I totally don't freak out my joints.
