8.6 Miles Today

"And to think that we saw it on Mulberry Street" ... Well, not exactly Mulberry Street ... but on our run today.

I know that milkweed plant is an important food for monarch butterflies. Today, for the first time, I saw a monarch butterfly feeding on a milkweed plant.

Another glimpse of the kitty we had seen before with mouse in mouth:

We saw horses, dogs being walked by their owners.
Beef cattle with young ones ... are these angus?

So fun to see so many young bikers out with an adult.

We might be partial to three-year-olds.

Supper tonight: bison, cubed and browned, cooked 5 hours in a crockpot. Absolutely moist and tender as the most tender beef... spiced with turmeric, fennugreek, coriander, tomatoes.
Vegetable curry: beets, beet greens, zucchini, onion, sweet potato, turmeric, ginger, ground fennel seed.
Smoothies: 1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt, 1 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 banana, a couple of chunks of fresh pineapple... PER SERVING

Looks gorgeous there. We had gray and cold today. I've been straining my yogurt into yogurt cheese - I can actually eat it without getting an upset tummy! I mixed it with raspberries and blackberries last week - gotta go get some more of those.

What a great day it was! And bison? I'm curious about the taste.

Bison: long and slow in the crockpot, spices added ... pretty similar to beef.
Any other way of cooking has resulted in very tough and a bit strong tasting, I think.

Great post & pictures! I love how you notice all of the small details about the life around you as you run.
