Morning! Fridays are for sharing all of the random things that I neglected over the week — such as this snapshot from the time I spent three hours in a refrigerator sorting various meats:Our church group volunteered with Second Harvest Food Bank the other day and organized lots of donated foods to give to people in need. Who knew that charity work could be so… COLD.
Moving along to cooked meat…I adopted my mom’s Le Creuset pan for the week and am having attachment issues. It’s going to be heart wrenching to say goodbye in a few short days.
We cooked up another whole chicken (I’m really into cooking whole chickens right now. Did you know that it’s a serious trend?) and it browned so beautifully in that pan!Leftover wild rice from Monday (revitalized with pepitas and onion!) plus an orange/avocado/cilantro salad on the side. Crazy skull napkins. I was digging the Southwestern theme!This Cook Smarts meal was one of my favorites of the week. Leftovers were awesome for lunch, too!Intermission: Favorite workout of the week was this morning’s 6 a.m. “circuit blast” session at the Margaret Maddox/East Nashville YMCA. Nashvillians, if you are Y members you have to come try this workout! My arms are so sore I can barely lift them to type up this post.
Back to the kitchen… here’s last night’s dinner! With prominent La Croix product placement.Beef, broccoli, cabbage // soba noodles // soy-miso sauce. Yum! I went a little overboard on the coconut oil while cooking everything in the wok. We doused everything in sriracha sauce to balance out the sweetness Off to start the weekend! Have a good one!
- Cast iron cookware: Worth the investment?
- Whole chickens: Yay or nay?
- Locals: Best YMCA class you’ve been to?
