I took a glorious fall on my run yesterday!
I have a gnarly scar on my right knee from falling on the SAME TRAIL last summer. I’m trying to start thinking of them as sexy.
At least the ground was nice and soft this time. I guess I should take this opportunity to explain that my blog name, irunintotrees, was chosen both because I prefer trails to road running, and also because I often run late in the afternoon, while the sun is setting right in my face and sometimes doesn’t let me see that branch/root/tree/etc. until it’s right in my face. I wear sunglasses to protect my eyeballs from getting scratched more than to keep UV rays out. So, yeah, I run into trees.
I decided to have leftover taco salad for dinner last night, but someone in my family finished the tostitos scoops I was saving! I contemplated going out and buying a new bag, but instead decided to make my own soft corn tortillas with my Bob’s Red Mill Masa Harina.
Mixing and rolling out the tortillas brought back memories of Costa Rica, when my friend and I would make our own tortillas and stuff ourselves with burritos pretty much every day. So I poured the rest of my Costa Rican liquer into my coffee and decided I need to give my friend a call soon.
I’m so glad I decided to make my own rather than go out and buy a bag of chips. Not only was it fun and nostalgic, but the tortillas came out shaped like flowers!!
