Hi Guys! Happy 4th. Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
Joe and I spent Saturday and Sunday out in the 'burbs and "rented" his parent's house since they're away on vacation. It was like a mini-vacation away from the city. We both kicked off the weekend with long runs. Joe planned out a very hilly 10-miler for me out in his hometown, and wrote the directions on the back of my hand (whatever works!). I love running routes I've never run before because the new scenery keeps me occupied. I finished it in 1 hr, 25 minutes and felt strong.
No, I did not run the Good Neighbor Day 15K (today) because I wanted to fully enjoy the BBQ yesterday! It's all about balance, people. But I still feel accomplished with the 10-miler.
Joe and I are back and Philly and are heading out in a bit to check out the 4th festivities here in the city! But before I go, I want to share with you my self-declared kick-ass guacamole recipe. It's awesome. More recipes from the 4th to come later this week, but this one couldn't wait!
Katie's Kick-Ass Guac Recipe
4 ripe avocados
2 limes (juice)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 tbsp chopped garlic
Core & scoop avocados into large bowl
Chop onion and tomato and add to bowl
Juice 2 limes into bowl
Chop garlic and add to bowl
Chop cilanto and add to bowl. They key here is fresh cilantro. Must be fresh. Cannot be that dried crap or stuff from a tube. Yuck.
Add S&P to taste.
Smash (is "smash" a culinary term?) all ingredients together with fork until chunky yet smooth. Don't over smash!
Test with tostitos.
If in doubt, add more salt. (I always seem to add more salt).
