This morning was the Sellwood Middle School 5k. Mom and Dad ran a fundraiser for the school, selling bags of apples. Cy and I ran in the race. To make a long story short, I had a great race. I won in a personal best time, edging out a Reedie who'd been sticking with me (and pushing me to go faster) the whole race. Cy did well too, he thinks his time was about 27 minutes, which, by my foggiest memories, puts him around a minute faster than I was three years ago.
After the race, Dad and Cy started working on dinner while Mom and I went to get flu shots. We returned home to a rich pork smell wafting from the kitchen. While it was not always clear what they were working on, or towards, they created a great meal for us. There were two sauces to go on the pork. The first, was very sweet at first, though it delivered quite the kick at the end of each bite. The other, was garlic and ginger heavy, but defied expectations as sharpened soy sauce.
