Let's be honest, most of my pics are of snow this weekend, so I had to be a bit creative. I cooked quite a lot this weekend. It isn't necessarily a goal, but I have been feeling super proud of myself. I've said a million times before that I'll spend so much time on a recipe and so much money...it turns out terrible, and I cry. My buddy, Harry, got me a cookbook called Healthyish, and I made a recipe from it last week. It was amazing, so I made another one on Friday. It was looking terrible because the sauce wasn't thickening, so I added a dash or cornstarch, and it turned out great!
Saturday, I got up and went to Life Time to meet Harry for a Zumba class. I used to take Zumba all the time when I lived in Reno, but I never take it anymore. Harry thought it was a stretching class. Nope. We were terrible, and I was being stupid and hurt my back.
The rest of Saturday was terrifying. I took Dillon, Jake's son, to a friend's house in Bloomington. On the way home, I had to stop on the interstate 3x to clear ice off of my windshield. I was sure a car wouldn't see me and hit me. You couldn't see anything. Thank goodness I made it home. With nothing to do, I started a new show on Netflix by recommendation, ATypical. It's a great show. It's about Sam, who has Autism, and his family.
And I made chocolate chip cookies. I tried a new recipe from Martha Stewart. Sunday, we woke up to hell like everyone else. I don't hate snow. I was just a little scared on how I would actually get out of my driveway. Luckily, Jake shoveled for like 2 hours, and the dogs enjoyed some playtime.
AND I worked on a new recipe from Fit Foodie Finds. I love Lee. She's local, and this was a GREAT recipe. I had most of the stuff, but I didn't have avocados or tahini (I had no idea what that was, but now I do), so once we were shoveled out, I grabbed some stuff at Whole Foods and made the Sweet Potato Vegan Buddha Bowls! Recipe here! They were super good! OH! I also finished my 4th book of the year "Braving the Wilderness"! I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the snow:)
