This weekend Kevin and I went to a local bike-swap and were able to pick up some inexpensive used bikes. Mine is a girly mountain bike with a basket on the front that we got for $45, and Kevin's is a much more manly mountain bike that came in at $50. Since we have moved to a larger place closer to our local biking trail, we thought it was high time we started riding regularly.

While out getting bikes, we stopped in at Big 5 so I could pick up some new workout shoes. My last pair (embarrassingly) are over 5 years old... so it was definitely time for a new pair. I found these bright lovelies on sale for $39.99, and they comfortably fit my weird wide feet.

Earlier last week I also picked up my second Full Circle organic produce basket. This time it came with romaine lettuce, cucumbers, kale mix, spinach, lemons, oranges, swiss chard, and golden potatoes. I think my favorite item of this bunch was either the golden potatoes or kale mix. For the golden potatoes, I made a potato skillet with swiss chard for breakfast over the weekend, much like this recipe. With the kale and some spinach I made one of my favorite salads: Chef AJ's Hail to the Kale Salad with her reduced fat dressing recipe.
I hope everyone has a great rest of their week!
