2 miles easy, 1 mile harder.
7 minute pace is getting routine.

Bowerman is the clean NIKE Track Club, right?

That's the conventional wisdom. I think they're clean. NOP has a sketchy past, at the least with gray area violations and those accusations that would not be in the black zone, but in 4 years nothing definitive has come out.

My mom used to make a squash casserole. It was basically a classic chicken and rice casserole (cream of mushroom soup!) but with squash in place of the chicken.

It was my favorite meal as a kid. :) I think I'd use arborio rice today and make more of a risotto, and skip the heavy blanket of melted cheddar on top. But back then I loved it.

Worked and ran a friend's Pride Week run in London, Ontario.  Wake up call at 4:20am, since it's a 2 hour drive from Toronto.  Quick grab of a microwavable breakfast pastry and juice before heading out the door.  A coffee and washroom stop on the way.

Light to moderate rain showers all morning long.  Set up S/F arch, race clock, medal tent, and finishing chute pylons, then got changed for the race. No wearing a tutu for me today, they don't do well in the rain.  Cool temps at least, around 68F.  Flat course with double out & back sections.  49:00 chip time and seventh overall, but only 32 people in the 10K (5K race had 79 finishers).  Negative 2nd half split at 24 minutes.  Last 2Ks were my fastest.

More cauliflower "rice" success!

I bought a large head of cauliflower yesterday at the farmers' market with the intention of cutting it up raw and eating it with a yogurt dip for a mid-afternoon snack.  That didn't pan out, so this morning, I grated it using my food processor with the shredding disc turned to the medium grate-size.  I spread the shredded cauliflower out between 2 clean dish towels placed on a large plastic cutting board and put a couple of tile trivets on top to help press out any excess moisture.  That worked really nicely!  I made the following with the cauliflower rice:

Cauliflower Upma

Upma is often made for breakfast or snacks in South India.  Usually, its base is rava (semolina); I typically make it with broken wheat, but the cauliflower worked really nicely for this.  It's not the same as true upma with wheat, but it was pretty tasty!

1 to 2 T neutral oil (I used grapeseed oil)
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 T skinless urad dal
1 to 2 dried red chilis
5 to 6 curry leaves (optional)
pinch of hing/asafoetida (optional)
Medium to large onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, diced
1 jalapeño, halved lengthwise then sliced crosswise.  Leave the seeds in if you want more heat.
1 ounce roasted cashews
Large head of cauliflower, grated and allowed to dry - about 5 to 6 cups
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
About 1 to 2 T chopped cilantro

Heat oil over medium-low heat in a large skillet; add mustard seeds and cover the skillet while the seeds pop.  When the popping decreases, like 5 to 10 seconds between pops, add the urad dal, red chilis, curry leaves, and hing, sauteing until the urad dal is deep red-brown and the chilis have blackened.

Add the onion, carrot, jalapeño, and cashews, increase the heat to medium, and sauté until the onions are translucent and the carrot has softened a bit.  About 5 min.

Add the shredded cauliflower, stir to mix with the veggies and cashews, and cook over medium-low to medium heat for about 7 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat, add salt and pepper to taste, and mix in the fresh cilantro.

Here's what the finished product looks like - not at all mushy!
