        Well, yeah. Perhaps. We could make cookies, too. Wink

          I just want to draw your attention to a very quick and easy fruit bake, which makes it easy to justify your long runs (after all, someone will have to bring home the blackberries, blueberries, raspberries,...):

           

          2 Tbsp butter

          3/4 cup flour (I use whole grain)

          1/4 to 1/2 cup granulated sugar

          1 tsp baking powder

          1/4 tsp salt

          3/4 cup milk

          1 tsp vanilla extract

          2 to 3 cups of fruit (berries, or diced)

          1Tbsp lemon juice

          ground cinnamon (e.g. for black- or blueberries) or ginger (e.g. for peaches)

           

          In a deep 9x13 cookie sheet, or a deep pie dish, or a n oven-proof glass or ceramic dish, melt the butter (I do this by placing the dish with the butter in the oven for a few minutes while pre-heating to 350 F).

           

          Mix flour, sugar (adjust amount to taste and sweetness of the fruits), baking powder and salt.

           

          Wash fruit if needed, add lemon juice, mix gently.

           

          Add vanilla to milk, and then the milk to flour mixture, blend quickly until smooth.

           

          Swirl butter in baking dish to cover the surface, then pour batter into hot butter. Quickly sprinkle fruit over batter. Sprinkle a dash of spice on top.

           

          Bake at 350F for about 30minutes, until edges are slightly brown, and center is set (test with a toothpick, if it comes out clean, it is done, but the fruit might stick to the toothpick).

           

          Notes:

          It tastes great warm out of the oven, or cold, with whipped cream, or ice cream.

           

          You can also add your favorite streusel or crumble topping before baking.

          Run for fun.

              I just heard this recipe on the radio. Elvis Presley seems to have loved it, and I think it might be a great recovery drink post-race, if you like the combination of flavors.

               

              Sean Brock's Elvis Presley Milkshake

               

              Serves 4 to 6  1 (trail runner)

               

              5 thick-cut strips of smoked bacon

              2 very ripe bananas

              1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

              1/4 cup Buffalo Trace bourbon

              3 cups vanilla ice cream, softened slightly

              3 tablespoons of bacon fat, cooled

               

              In a large skillet over medium-high heat, fry the bacon until very crispy, about 6 to 8 minutes. Drain the bacon on paper towels. Reserve the rendered bacon fat separately, allowing it to cool slightly.

               

              Place the bananas, peanut butter and bourbon in a blender. Add the cooked bacon and 3 tablespoons of the reserved bacon fat and blend until smooth, about 45 seconds, scraping down the sides if necessary. Add the ice cream and pulse to incorporate into a smooth shake, about 30 seconds.

              If you'd like, you can also incorporate the ice cream by hand by mixing it in with a whisk or an immersion blender; this will help keep the shake in a more frozen state. Serve immediately. Transfer any extra shake to a lidded container and reserve in the freezer. Because the alcohol prevents it from completely freezing, it turns into a scoopable ice cream.

              Run for fun.
