Can you name this squash/pumpkin? My mom gave it to me last week and I've never had one of these.
Manfriend pretending to rip it apart with his bare hands. ;)
It looks like a pumpkin AND a squash. It has the seeds of a pumpkin, but it tastes like a squash. Quite the conundrum. I could look it up, but it's more fun to have you guys tell me what it is!
After the manfriend cut it in half, I cut it into smaller pieces and roasted it at 400 deg. for about 40 min with olive oil, sea salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. It tastes good! I'll probably end up mixing it into a chili or soup.
On another note, I just replaced my beloved Brooks Adrenalines with a new pair. Once you find a shoe you love, it's hard to switch it up.
Over the last few weeks, I could tell my pair from just before the Victoria Marathon was nearly shot. I was trying to hold out until January and make do with the old ones and another pair of old New Balances, but I just couldn't.
When I wear shoes that are too old, flat or narrow, my feet start hurting (my bunions start flaring up) and my knees twinge a little here and there. Well, those damn bunions showed their ugly face this weekend and I said ENOUGH!
Sure, I'm $100 poorer, but good kicks are important when running is something you LOVE. Now days, I end up replacing my shoes just about every three months - ugh.
It's amazing how cushiony the new shoes feel each time you lace them up. Now if only they could stay comfy and clean forever!
How often do you replace your running/workout shoes? Do you replace them based on months, miles, feel, body aches?
P.S. I don't recommend wearing Vibrams in 20 degree weather. I tried that this week on a walk with the dog and came back to the house nearly in tears. Toes. hurt. SO. bad.
