Nutmeg and Celery ???’s
6 miles @ 8:05 pace on treadmill
I think my knee is having DOKS- Delayed Onset Knee Soreness, haha. It was more sore today than yesterday (the day after my 18 miler). I decided to still run, as it didn’t hurt, I jut felt it more than normal. Fingers crossed the soreness dwindles by tomorrow 🙂
I have a few questions for all you foodies out there…
Question #1: Does nutmeg go rancid/bad?
I bought some nutmeg about a month ago and there were 4 little nuggets in the bag. I cook with and put nutmeg in my oatmeal A LOT, so I know what it’s supposed to taste like. When I used the nutmeg on the the right in the picture it tasted really off. Not necessarily bad, but definitely not normal. I thought maybe my taste buds were just off for the day or something I had eaten earlier may have adjusted the taste so I used it the next day, too. It was still weird tasting. I grabbed a different “meg” the next time I used it and that one tasted fine! They were from the same purchase so it’s not like I had one laying around for a year. Thoughts?
Question #2: What do I do with a ton of celery?
Celery was buy one get one free this week at Publix. I needed some for our stir-fry dinner one night and now I have almost 2 whole bunches of celery! I made a few “ants on a log” for me and some “logs” (he doesn’t like ants on his logs, what a loser!) for Todd, but we can only eat it that way so many times. Just in case you aren’t in the loop- ants on a log is peanut butter in the crevasse of the celery stalk with raisins on top. I HATE wasting food, so any ideas on how to use this much celery (other than using it as a dipper) would be greatly appreciated! Oh, and I already tried to pawn it off to my mom, but she bought some, too, haha.
Publix also had this Shock Top Seasonal Collection Honeycrisp Apple Wheat on sale. You know I’m not a big beer fan, as I mentioned HERE, but this one gets a thumbs up by me! Would I choose this over a Long Island Ice Tea? No. But it was good… for beer, HAHA.
