Weekend Round-Up: Long Run and Good Food

I wished I have pictures to show you of my run Saturday morning. But they were blurry like this.
We ran out to the neighborhood I used to live. And out again to this highway. That was about 3 miles.
Along this highway, I counted at least 10 beer cans in less than a span of 1 mile.  Littering is bad.
But drinking and driving and littering?
Oh no!
Running Friend had it at 5 miles so we cut short our run and walked/jog back.
He said his insoles or shoes are giving him trouble.
It was a timely call anyway because it started to sprinkle.
I headed home and ran the remaining miles.
At 11 miles, I thought, well, I can do 12.
At 12 miles, I thought, well, I can do 13.
At 13 miles, I thought, well, I can do a little bit more to finish this movie I was watching.
That's it.
13.22 miles in the bag. 
I am proud of myself.

Sunday, I went to church to see this little sweet baby cousin get christened.
She had fallen several days ago because her 2-year sister tried to be helpful and picked her up the steps and dropped her. 
 I was just glad to be part of this sweet baby's milestone in life. 
I love my family. 

I went to the grocery store again to pick up not-good-stuff but rather yummy stuff.
There is reason for this madness.
Well, they are mostly for the boyfriend.
I usually just get one of those mini cones and will be plenty satisfied.

I came home and got busy with bread.
I made stromboli - kinda. 
This is made with home-made bread. 
Roll out the dough.  Place cheese, Canadian bacon, olives, mushrooms and a little pizza sauce.
Roll it up and let it rise a little more. 
Yummy mess!

For the rest of the dough,
I rolled it and made a hearth-kinda bread (whatever that means).
I like bread that looks like this instead of loaf.
Sprinkle some cheese, Italian herbs and seasoning.
Pop it in the oven...

Sheer delish!
I am about to open a bottle of wine and just read a book and enjoy the rest of my Sunday night.
