Moose Date

October 26, 2010

How cute! On my run this evening, I saw two moose out on a date! They were strolling down the sidewalk, hoof-in-hoof, and snatching a little dinner from the bushes. It was adorable!

I ran 4 miles after work today. Nothing special, just some nice, easy, get-lost-in-my-thoughts miles. 🙂

Fuel for my run was a Vanilla Almond Luna bar. I’ve had decent Luna bar flavors, but this one was probably the best I’ve ever had! Maybe it is because I love almonds and vanilla-flavored things. 😉

Thankfully Craig was cooking tonight, so I dinner was already prepared by the time I got back! 🙂

Now, they may not look pretty, but don’t let that fool you about the taste because they were quite scrumptious!

These red peppers were stuffed with a cheesey rice mixture and topped with a portobello mushroom.

Here’s what the inside looks like.
