Lemongrass Noodles with Mock Duck

I did say that I was going to prepare the Lemongrass Noodle Bowl with Mock Duck - it turned out quite well too.  Other than the faux duck, the only 'difficult' ingredient was the lemongrass itself - because I had to drive about 3 miles to an Asian market to find it.  The rest was quite simple:  prepare a marinade and marinate the 'veggie duck' for a couple of hours.  Prepare the broth, cook some sliced onions, ginger, lemongrass in the broth, strain it, and keep warm.  Then prepare the noodles, fry the mock duck and assemble in bowls, with lots of herbs and other veggies for color and contrast.  The recipe is on the PPK site.  Photograph tomorrow.

Couple of good workouts today:  Ran an easy 6 miles with Daisy on a very cool and rather damp morning, lots of squirrels and bunny rabbits along the trail on the edge of Buffalo Bayou.  Average heart rate just over 120bpm with a couple of stops here and there. I really don't want to jinx it but the knee seems to be slowly getting better, despite increased mileage... Last week I managed about 27 miles which was probably my highest week in more than 4 months. 

Over lunch time, 50 minutes or so workout with Frank at my local 'Fast Results Fitness' studio.  The place is looking really good nowadays, here are a few pics:

That dish sounds very good. I recently visited Greece and am now in love with real greek salad. Not the american version. :)
