Walking Makes Me Hungry

Since I like to keep moving and love nature, I've always enjoyed walking. In the colder weather, once the kayak is hung up, I join in on a few local walks at nearby reserves and land trusts. Most of the regulars know I appear after kayak season. Besides, it's nice to play catch up, right?





Last week, although the walk was slated for Wednesday, a typical gym day, I had to make an exception and play hookie from the gym. Sure the walk would result in more learnings and things of interest but better still was the pot luck get together after our hike that I was looking forward to!

I meant to take a pic of all the food, but was too busy filling my plate with Artichoke Dip, Cheese and Crackers, Hungarian Goulash, Swedish Meatballs, Tossed Salad, Bacon Spinach Quiche and Cheesecake, Apple Crisp and Chocolate Pecan Fudge for dessert. 

Trust me, it was delicious after our brisk walk through the woods. A great bunch of people, this crowd is all about Mother Nature and the conversations are just as brisk as the walks! 




Gosh I make great Apple Crisp!  I had to have a little when I got home...:)

Walking is especially good this time of year when most of us are eating wa-a-ay too much! Apple crisp for breakfast sounds like a great idea to me right now. :))

I love pot luck dinners...the only dish you have to wash is your own.

I wish i could find someone to walk with, at least 3 so that we can walk daily even if someone can't make it. you gave me an idea. i will see if the YMCA will let me put up a sign for walkers, Bray park is almost next door to the YMCA and perfect for walking...

I NEED to go for a LONG walk. LOL Too many sweets the past few days. The wind here today is wicked although the sun is shining and it's above freezing but no walking for me. Enjoy.

Yum! Warm apple crisp after a crisp snowy walk. It doesn't get any more comforting than that!

You must be very, very fit! The crisp is so perfect for after a walk. Maybe warm with a glass of cold milk or hot tea.

If I got a pot luck meal after walking I would certainly do it more often :)

Gotcha. Running makes me hungry. Today I'm thinking about making a new recipe - spiced pumpkin hummus with toasted pita chips :-)
