Eat Slow. This is week two of my experiment. One recipe I prepared last week , the mashed yams with sage brown butter, tasted great but the texture was not a favorite with any of my family, leaving me with a big pan of leftovers and no one to eat them. Additionally, we loved the roasted chicken and ended up with a carcass begging to be used for something. With many of the ingredients new to me and more expensive than what I normally buy, and using those two recipes as inspiration, this week I set out to avoid wastefulness and overspending as I planned out the next set of recipes.

After successfully keeping the plague away from me for the majority of January, I finally got bit by some sort of bug. You ever wake up in the morning and before you even speak, you know that you've developed some sort of illness overnight? That's exactly what happened to me last week. I woke up coughing on Saturday morning and the worst part was I knew it was in my chest. Not good when the whole reason you woke up early was to eat and prepare for a half marathon! From the time you're a little baby runner, your coaches will tell you to do a "neck check" when you're sick. That means if your symptoms are above your neck, you can run.
