No matter where we live, we were all rocked by the bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday.
Why is the weekly menu starting on Wednesday?
Monday and Tuesday were simply an unfiltered cascade of emotions. DISBELIEF. sHoCk. sadness. FEAR. gratitude. RELIEF. Guilt. anger. I have friends and family who live, work or go to school along the towns in the marathon route. I've spent many happy weekends in Boston during college. Many of my friends and relations and I run, whether in events or just on the streets and trails.
With prayers for the departed and injured and gratitude for the ordinary citizens who responded in extraordinary ways, I'm coming around to RESOLVE. And with that, here's what we are eating for the rest of the week.
Tacos from scratch. Requested by the children.
Zaru soba with green onions. No recipe needed. Regular soba, Hon-Tsuyu and green onions. Done.
Smoked Salmon Pasta. Also requested by the children, "with lots of chard." My kids are funny like that.
And now, I'm putting on my dusty old shoes to run for Boston. I hope we all do.
