Long, Lean, & Wonderful
Things I should not be allowed to microwave because they end in disaster*
3. Cheese dip
*disaster = explode all over and end up burning me
Today it the cheese dip was the culprit- hot cheese went flying all over the kitchen, me included. It got stuck to my elbow and burned it, but I got ice cold water on it right away, so not not too much damage.
I think it might be the world’s way of telling me I shouldn’t be having a third serving of cheesy dip….I ate it anyway- take that world! 😉
Dinner was much more successful- salmon with fruit salsa and a side of vegs.
Salmon with Mango & Orange Salsa
Coat both sides of salmon fillets with agave nectar. Season with garlic, salt, & pepper.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes (until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork).
1/2 cup mango cubes
1/2 navel orange
red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp cornstarch
Sacrifice one wedge for juice. Mix all together and simmer on low until fish is ready.
Top salmon with salsa; serve & enjoy!
Plus navy beans, spinach, and yellow carrots.
Directions: open box. microwave. drown in Texas Pete hot sauce. eat.
Pilates is back!
Pilates class tonight was amazing. I’ve missed it so much- I can’t believe I went so long without going. Sometimes I can’t because of a schedule conflict, but a lot of times I don’t go out of sheer laziness. That’s the problem with a having a class at night- I’m usually all curled up and comfy by the time it’s time to go to class. (By the way, I do mat Pilates- I’ve never even seen one of those Pilates reformer monster machines in real life.)
One thing I love about Pilates is even if you can’t do something, or aren’t good at it, you feel powerful. I love it. At the beginning of class the instructor said “You should leave tonight feeling long, lean, and wonderful.”
I do feel long, lean, and wonderful. And hungry!
I’m now snacking on a banana and mug full of Kashi Honey Sunshine.
Have a good night!!
Don’t forget to check back in the AM for DYKT!!!!
