A Hike and A Honey

Sunday was such a B-E-A-Utiful day! Saturday night I slept with the windows open and woke up to a perfectly crisp apartment. After 2 morning walks with Theodore, I met up with Katy for coffee at Caribou Coffee. If you haven’t seen it yet they sell a Pumpkin Chai that is to die for!

After coffee, Katy and I met up with Lauren for a hike at Black Hills Park in Montgomery County Maryland.

The park was just beautiful and the weather couldn’t have been any better.

As I had to leave to pick up Neal at the airport, we were only able to walk for a little over an hour but it was awesome!  Nothing better than working out with friends and having time to talk.

After a long flight delay, I was finally able to pick up Neal from the airport around 3PM.  I couldn’t wait to have him back home!!  Neal just makes my life so much fun and it’s hard not being able to share things with him throughout the week.  Thankfully he’s back for a while!

Delallo Vodka Sauce and Whole Wheat Pasta

For dinner, I made Neal Delallo Whole Wheat Linguine with their Creamy Vodka sauce.

After the pasta cooked I added 1 tsp of olive oil, a pink of salt and pepper, and a good amount of red pepper flakes.  I then topped the pasta with 1/2 cup of the vodka sauce.

I can not begin to express how amazing this dinner was.  I have been enjoying Delallo products for a few weeks now and I can not say enough about their whole wheat pastas and their sauces.  This vodka sauce, though higher in fat and in calories, was robust and the perfect balance of cheese, tomato, and vodka.  If you see their products at the store, you’ve got to try them!  You wont regret it!

    Great outdoor workout. I was just telling my sister we should do more walks in Central Park this Fall. I never do because I’m in the city all week the last thing I want to do is come in again on the weekend but we are going to give it a try. The pasta looks delicious! Look forward to meeting you at FitBloggin!

      I know what you mean about going back into the city on the weekends, it’s tough but you’ll love going into the park and going for a walk… especially in the fall! Can’t wait to meet you either.

    Ahhh… there aren’t any Caribou Coffees around here, but I want a pumpkin chai so bad! Guess I’ll have to try to figure out how to make my own. Yesterday was wonderful- this weather is just perfect!
    So glad that Neal is back home- I know you missed him. :)

    What a FUN day!! And I’ve had to restrain myself from not going to Caribou multiple times yesterday. ;) Your pasta dinner looks fabulous! Will have to look for that in stores next time. So glad Neal is back! Enjoy getting back in to your routines together!!
