Rhubarb Cobbler


Remember how I had that string of amazing runs and felt super fast? Yeah, I knew that streak would end eventually and this weekend it sputtered and died. Friday I went for a particularly lackluster 4.5 miles with the stroller, and Saturday even the excitement of new shoes (Saucony Guide 5s) couldn’t get me out the door for more than 1 mile. I made sure to do that so my Summer Running Streak didn’t die, but I still wasn’t feeling the running love when I woke up the next morning, so my planned 10-12 miles turned into 5. It happens.

Sunday morning’s family run gave Mike and me a chance to catch up and we both realized we’ve been spending WAY too much time wrapped up in various internet and iPhone diversions. In a completely cliched blogger move, I decided I would “unplug” for a week. No twitter, no facebook, no dailymile, no pinterest…just email (and a couple pre-written and scheduled blog posts). I’m hoping this means I’ll spend more time with my favorite people.

and more time reading this, which I picked up over a month ago.

When we got home from the run I put down my phone and baked a cobbler. Brown sugar, fresh ginger, and rhubarb on the bottom, and a ginger-brown sugar biscuit topping. Delightful!

    I was unplugged last week – but not by choice, by life!

    Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors but I haven’t been able to get through The Lacuna. Let us know what you think.
