Yum!

Last night, as I was making dinner, I realised that it has been a looooong time since I last did a food related post.

And then I realised that I hadn’t really taken many foodie pictures recently. Hmmm. I’ll need to rectify that!

Last night, I had a gorgeous stir fry with zero noodles and honey smoked salmon flakes. It was delicious!

And during a recent visit to the cafe, I had chilli nachos. The portion was massive, but that was not a problem for me 😉

The only other foodie pics I have to share are of a recent pit stop at Subway, where I had a steak ‘n’ cheese on seven grain oat bread. It tasted better than it looked:

And of some pigs ‘n’ blanket crisps. They lasted all of five minutes!

I’ll try to remember to do some better foodie posts, promise!

The Perfect Present

The Perfect Present

I know that I’m very lucky, since @TheWelshWookie supports my running, and also runs with me.

For my birthday last year he got me my Nike LunaryFly GTX:

I love these shoes, they’re great!

This year, he got me a new Ron Hill running jacket; perfect timing, since the weather has definitely turned cooler!

Thanks, Wookie! I love it! I know I’ll get great use out of it now, and again in the spring.

I also received another wonderful surprise last night: I PLACED in a run!  I was the third female across the line at the CowalFest 5K on Saturday! I’m going to be crowing about this for a long time 😀

The plan for the rest of my birthday is playing football with my nephews, dinner at the cafe, and more Harry Potter. And perhaps a celebratory glass of vino!

My Favourite Cafe

My Favourite Cafe

Well, hello there, Monday, you’ve come around too fast!

Today, I received a reality check, after spotting the following goodies in our local Co Op:

Erm, hello, the Hallowe’en goodies haven’t even hit the shelves yet, and you’re selling Christmas goodies?!

Anyhoo, how has your day been?

Tonight, we’ve headed to my favourite cafe for dinner. I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned it before. It’s called Cafe Ca’Dora, and it’s in Tarbert, conveniently located easily within walking distance. And we love it!

What is really tempting is that virtually every run goes past it. It’s difficult not to just pop in!

We visit it regularly- too regularly, and every time we have visitors, we’re guaranteed to be in there a few times: for breakfast, or lunch, or coffee, or dinner. Or any combination of those!

@TheWelshWookie loves the burgers.

I love the nachos, wraps, pasta and fajitas.

They also make their own ice cream. It is delicious!

All of this talk of food is making me hungry again! 🙂

And I’m having a rest day; so no running to burn any extra calories off! 😮
