Healthy living and feeling stronger.
I used a 12-pound medicine ball for sit-ups and Russian twists during today’s O2 Bodyfit class. It was a tough circuit. However, I could handle the weight.
Last year, I used a 6-pound ball.
After class, I made vegetable quiche cups with green bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini and red onions. I added Pepper Plant hot sauce.
I used a recipe from “The Kitchen is My Playground.”
The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in our house. I love the smell of meat and vegetables simmering on the stove.
David Rocco’s Dolce Vita helps me soothe my travel bug blues. His life and family in Florence look fabulous. Today, I made Salsiccie e Fagioli from his Spring Break episode.
I enjoy cooking with Sinatra crooning on my iPad.
Playing on Pandora Radio: “The Way You Look Tonight.”
That made me think of the last time I danced to that song with Mark. It was the last dance at a wedding reception at Mark Hopkins in San Francisco.
“…wrinkle your nose..”
I suppose we also like this song because of it’s connection to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. I always think of it as Kira and Odo’s song.
Call me a mouse.
Nibbling on cheese makes me happy. I loved snacking on cheese slices and bread when I was a kid. I didn’t need it melted into a grilled cheese sandwich. I just wanted cheese and white bread.
We picked up this Mitica Campo de Montalban from a Whole Foods in San Rafael. It’s made from cow and sheep milk.
Our Peru trip is just around the corner. We spent April and May indulging in food and drinks. It feels like a lovely time to give my body a break with clean eating.
After my market trip, I made roasted zucchini and tomatoes with whole wheat linguini. I modified a recipe by Martha Stewart. I left out the salt, olive oil and cheese. I added chopped olives. I served it with salmon, grilled on cedar planks. My hubby left out salt and pepper on the fish. It tasted yummy!
