Strawberry Orange Sorbet

Good morning foodies! I hope your Monday is starting off well. This weekend was quite the weekend for Nick and I. On Saturday he ran his first 10k. The Irish Sprint 10k was my first run to attend. I am not a runner by nature; in fact, I don’t think I will ever be a runner.

I am okay with that.

Nick did such a great job. One of the benefits of running the Irish Sprint 10k was the Golden Ticket everybody received that crossed the finish line. Wondering why the golden ticket is significant? Well, it gives you an automatic entrance into the Marine Corp Marathon.

Awesome, huh?

Needless to say, Saturday was a very long, but relaxing day {at least later in the day after the race!} I really enjoyed myself. I was able to meet a couple of Nick’s coworkers/friends. It’s always great to expand your friendship networks. Best part: Nick was the lone Army man amongst three Marines. I giggled a little when I got home.

Now I guess we wait and train for the next run, which comes up soon!

And by we, I mean Nick will train and I will encourage him. It’s a great relationship, don’t hate.

I was worried that Nick would be immobile on Sunday after his race. But, like a trooper, he got up and we met with our realtor for the first time. He took us to see a couple of properties and got to know our likes and dislikes a little bit. I felt very encouraged by his expertise and knowledge. I think this is the beginning of a great relationship. He really seems to fight for his clients, and I like that.

Because this weekend was so crazy, I did not have much time to cook {and I was not complaining about that.} Sometimes a foodie needs a break.

However, I do have a little something, which I think is really incredible. Take a look at this fabulously sweet and tart Strawberry Orange Sorbet.

Oh yes. Sorbet. Oh and it’s absolutely guilt free to eat.
