RSBC 2013 Week 2

My total for running miles is up to 6.9, which is actually down from last week. I discovered that I had counted something that wasn't running (it was miscategorized in my app), and I only ran once this week. Sigh... But this week can only get better, right?!

Tonight I realized I needed to cook lentils. I also had some very soft zucchini in the fridge that needed to get used. Threw together a spicy Italian lentil soup, which turned out pretty well. It would have been better with spinach, too, but for a thrown together thing, I was quite pleased. Sauteed some pepperoni, then took them out, threw in onions and carrots (chopped) and zucchini a little later. Added 1 cup of lentils, a can of diced tomatoes, 4 cups of beef broth, some garlic powder since I was out of fresh, some spices, and then simmered (well, I used the pressure cooker, but it was just fast simmering).
