Late Friday night post for you here. Just had to share.
Carbo-loading has been great. I mentioned in today's earlier post that I made some Pasta, Pesto and Peas on Thursday. Tonight I made some meat sauce and tossed it over spaghetti. But not just any spaghetti:
Blog buddy Christine of Marvelously Mundane sent me this along with a lot of other really awesome stuff. She drew my name in a gift exchange we had through another web site and I was blown away with the stuff she sent me (and the girls and Mrs. LB). Part of what she got me was this box of spaghetti, local to Boston (she lives in the Boston area). I'd wanted to save it for a special occasion and tonight fit the bill.
I make a simple meat sauce, with Italian sausage, red bell pepper, Anaheim pepper, mushrooms, garlic, red onion, black pepper and some seasonings:
... and then after it's all heated through, I add some marinara sauce...
... and heat that up for a bit. Then, place it over some cooked spaghetti and...
... we have the meal that is going to help fuel me for the race.
One more thing that Christine sent me was a picture of the starting line of the Boston Marathon. It is really, really cool and I'm honored to have that picture.
Stay tuned for one more post coming Saturday! Surf City Eve is tomorrow!
