Over the last few weeks I’ve been getting great use out of my new cast iron pan; this time I whipped up some rosemary and garlic chicken and sweet potatoes. It turned out pretty well!
I accidentally doused the chicken with half the bottle of rosemary so it had plenty of flavor. For the potatoes I tried to follow a Bobby Flay Garlic and Herb Grilled Sweet Potato Fries recipe. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite nail the consistency after boiling them for a bit too long. Next time I might have to try the traditional baked fries option, yum.
On Friday I ventured to the National’s baseball game. What a great night!
So much American pride at bargain prices… $8 tickets!?
National’s Stadium itself opened in 2008; a few fun facts:
- 41,418 seating capacity
- It was the first major stadium to receive US LEED certification
- Fans can see the Washington Monument and the Capitol from the upper decks
- Pope Benedict visited the stadium in 2008 and held Mass!?
Then on Sunday I had the pleasure of experiencing Ikea to it’s fullest! What a trip. Since it’s advised not to go hangry, a Sweedish lunch was welcomed. No picture, I was that hungry.
To top off the weekend I got a 7ish mile run in to round out preparation for the half. The weather couldn’t have been better, just hoping for a brisk and quick Sunday jaunt next week!
