leftover remix

I went to my third Charlotte Runners meetup yesterday at 6:30pm.  It was the same route as last Tuesday's (booty loop) and this time I didn't get lost.  I thank Tim (fellow runner) for keeping a decent pace and not sprinting too far ahead of me since we were the pack leaders and I DEFINITELY HAD NO IDEA where I was going.  It was another very hot day in CLT which made it a lot tougher to run 5 miles.  I'm beginning to think that it's going to be a very steamy summer in my new city.  The Garmin clocked in at:
  • 5.15 miles in 42:13 minutes (8:11 pace)
Once I got home I knew it was time to start getting dinner ready.  One of the drawbacks of these group runs is getting home around 7:30pm and eating dinner much later than I'm used to.  By the time I was done getting everything ready to eat it was close to 8:30pm.  I had leftover ground turkey from the night before so I just needed to make some sides.  After stocking up on food at Trader Joe's yesterday I finally had some vegetables to incorporate into my meal.
ground turkey, sweet potatoes, kale chips
I roasted some kale and one sweet potato that I had peeled and cubed in the oven at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes.  Both were drizzled in olive oil and seasoned with some salt and pepper.  Once I removed the sweet potatoes from the oven (they cooked a little longer than the kale and were in the oven for about 30 minutes) I drizzled a tiny bit of maple agave syrup on them.  Oh. My. God.  Such an easy meal but so many delicious flavors.
