Having lived in Alaska for 3.5 years now, fresh, wild-caught salmon is abundant and at my fingertips any time I please.
So much so I have actually grown tired of salmon! Gasp, I know, right? Once a fish that I enjoyed is now a food I’ve overdosed on and really don’t care for anymore.
However, there is one way in which I still don’t mind salmon–at least too much:
Winter is definitely the time of the year when people are making soups up the wazoo, but I had a little chuckle when I looked back at the recipe post and saw that I first made this in July. . . in the middle of summer!!
Summer in Alaska doesn’t get that hot, so it didn’t really surprise me I was trying to warm up with some soup in the middle of summer. That was probably also the day I turned our heat on!!
My mid-morning snack:
For lunch, a hefty salad to go along with some salmon chowder.
I was not happy I had to use a spork to eat my salad with.
I have not been sleeping well this past week (read: stressed) and the past two nights Craig has come home after I’ve gone to bed, which has woken me up because I’m a light sleeper.
Somehow, miraculously though, I haven’t been super tired when my alarm has gone off in the morning. However, I definitely have not been feeling so hot on my runs, which is probably a sign of fatigue.
I somehow managed to plod through 7 miles this morning; I’m not sure what kept me going though.
I’m thinking I might take the morning off and try running after school tomorrow instead. We shall see. Maybe an evening on the couch will give my legs and body the rest they need.
What food item have you grown tired of?
