Gosh, I am just wiped out and so very, very happy that it is Friday night. Short post tonight, because I have nothing groundbreaking to share. Shoulder still hurts, but it has definitely improved from yesterday.
When I got home from work I was craving some fun cardio, and the solution to that is Cardioke.
Yup. It is just as fantastically cheesy as it looks. Want to take a peek?
It is, by no means, an intense workout, but it is a fun way to burn some calories on a Friday night (when my husband is working late (and I wouldn’t dare do this with another human around). And it certainly is a nice way to unwind after a stressful workweek. Singing and flailing around like an idiot? Sign me up.
It’s Friday night, so that means it’s time to show off our CSA swag.
Eggplant, tomatoes, peaches (yay!), zucchini, some kind of squash (?), tiny watermelon, local corn meal and (not pictured) eggs.
Not entirely sure what we are going to do with 5 eggplants, but hey, we’ll figure it out! Recipes are welcome.
Anyone know what this squash is? How to use it?
Look at the cute curly watermelon stem. This sucker is TINY.
And no, it’s not just that my head is huge. This must be the baby of the tiny watermelon we got last week. I thought that one was teeny.
For dinner, wanted to just do something simple on my alone night. I think there is nothing more magically than a nice turkey sandwich. So simple, but DEEElicious.
Husband’s homemade whole grain bread with lettuce, raw cheddar, turkey, onion and of course, some tomato.
This cute pink lady was up to the challenge tonight. This is from our garden and is the heirloom variety Mortgage Lifter.
I really wanted avocado on my sammy, but cut open both of our avocados and they had that yucky old avocado smell. Not good eats. Instead, put on a little mayo and some local stoneground mustard.
We are incredibly fortunate to have this fantastic company making great condiments and jarred goods right down the road. They also partner with our CSA frequently and we get goods in our weekly box. This one showed up in our box a few weeks ago with ketchup by the same company.
Served on the side with some herb MGCs and my favorite white bean dip from our local food co-op. Look how simple the ingredients are…
I really need to try to make this on my own. So simple!
And some melon (from the big baby melon).
All together now!
For some reason I’m a bottomless pit tonight, and soon after finishing dinner, I still felt hungry. Not sure what’s going on. Growth spurt? Ha! I hope not. Anywho, sliced up two peaches that were about to kick the bucket.
I’m going to spend some quality time with my couch and the TV remote. Ahhh, happy weekend everyone!
