Ice!Too slippery to run or drive this morning, so Anthony and I stayed inside and did a yoga video instead. I have another fun workout planned for tonight (assuming the weather permits) so I was okay with taking it easy. Also, given how terribly inflexible I am I suppose a bit of stretching was a good idea. Here’s my sad version of sitting Indian-style:and this is me “touching my toes.” Yikes!Here’s the free video we followed, btw. If you’re snowed in today and have 30 minutes to spare, give it a whirl.
This cold weather calls for hot meals! Like maafe. I’d never heard of this West African dish and was intrigued when I saw it on the Cook Smarts menu.I have no idea how authentic this was, but I can say that it was good. The recipe we used is very similar to this one — turnips, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, and chicken (I cooked my chicken in the slow cooker). All stirred up in a peanut /tomato/ginger/garlic sauce! We served ours over couscous and topped it with cilantro, lime, hot sauce, and a few more peanuts. Crunch.Time to tackle my second workout of the morning: scraping all of the ice off of my windshield Have a good one!
