Good morning friends! How was your weekend? When I sat down to write this post I had to think *really* hard about what I did all weekend long. Is that a good or bad sign? I’m going back to work feeling refreshed and ready for the week so I’m going to go with good. I mean, how hard could last week have been anyway. I spent 3 days of it on vacation!
iPhone photos to the rescue.
Sushi, sushi, sushi! I’ve been dying to get my hands on these little rolls since I got back from Florida.
The rest of the evening was spent just relaxing and listening to the rain storm. Korky gets all lovey when it rains so I love that weather!
I was up bright & early for my very FIRST kettlebells class. Holy crap. Someone could have given me a heads up that this class is brutal. We did the following circuit:
-10 two-handed swings
-8 decline pushups (off a step)
-25 step overs
-8 incline pushups (on a step)
-5 box jumps
-25 Russian twists
I thought I might be dying by the time it ended. I was sweating up a storm and actually had to wipe up the area around my station when the class was done. I LOVED IT! When I got home I immediately whipped up my favorite post-workout snack, Chocolate Coconut Water & 1 packet of Perfect Fit protein powder.
I wanted to nap, but I was in charge of the veggies pick-up for the CSA. Usually Karen and I go during the week, but neither of us could make it so I did a Saturday pick-up.
The farm was bumpin’ but I did manage to rummage through the tomatillos patch to get some goodies.
CSA Week 13 (Full Share!)
-zucchini & yellow squash
-dill & basil
The rest of the day I just rolled around the house complaining about how tired I was and hard I worked. No good deed goes unnoticed in my house.
That night I decided I wanted to bust out a recipe that I’ve been dying to try, Steamy Kitchen’s Scallops n’ Pasta. Even though I have a huge love of seafood, I’ve never made scallops. I always thought they had to be hard to cook since the folks on Hell’s Kitchen and Top Chef are constantly screwing it up. Nope. No it is not hard to make them. Get with it pros!
I followed the directions on how to cook the scallops exactly as written and they came out perfectly. Just a touch of sear on them and perfectly cooked through. Not chewy at all!
For my version of the recipe I used Trader Joe’s Garlic Basil pasta and added Aidell’s Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage to the mix.
This whole meal was so decadent, but light at the same time. The sauce of wine and garlic was such a lovely little surprise at the bottom of the bowl.
After eating dinner I found this little gem in my living room. I have no idea how Korky got a hold of this carrot, but apparently he is not a fan of organic.
Obviously I did 2 things on Sunday. Beer and Football. Done and Done.
Monday is here before we know it and I have a busy week ahead of me. I hope you guys had a good weekend!
Are you a football watcher? What is your team?
GO NOLES! GO BUCS!
