Today was a crisp, lovely day.
Isn't this immature cabbage head pretty? I was too lazy to clean it out of my planter when the snow came and it's now frozen solid.
Speaking of frozen, we took a stroll on a series of lakes near our house to judge the ice for skiing potential. Not quite ready yet, but soon. Yippee! I have new skate skis to break in.
Our friends from Wasilla are on their way over. They own a fantabulous wine bar in Wasilla (The Grape Tap) and I'm excited because they always bring yummy wine for us to sample.
I made a crockpot Thai red curry and also some appies to go with wine:
|served with raw onion crackers and veggies|
Nacho Cheeze from Kristen's Raw (highly addictive)
Avocado and Zucchini Dip (gorgeously chartreuse) from Gone Raw
Sun-dried Tomato Dip:
- large handful sun-dried tomatoes
- large handful cashews (soaked are better)
- hearty dash olive oil
- 1 tsp + oregano
- 1 tsp + basil
- onion and garlic powder to taste
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 red pepper
- blend on low
|kale chips, of course|
Chocolate caramel tarts (see yesterday's post) for dessert. My review: the bottom brownie layer and the
ganache on top are phenomenal. I'm not sold on middle caramel layer yet, as I'm not a huge fan of mesquite in desserts. However, it may grow on me, as Kombucha and P90X have.
Stretch day for P90X- heck yeah!! I think I'm addicted. I'm already worried about how I'm going to get my fix when our families are in town next week.
Question: does anyone else need armpit diapers during Yoga X?
