This dreary weather has me wanting to chew things like a teething baby! I’ve been munchy all day. And getting that funky feeling again. No endorphins? No coffee? Rain? Ahhh!
My leg injury is much better today – but the other side of my leg is really bad! It doesn’t feel like an injury – it feels like a compensation cramp of sorts. It’s like the tendons are all scrunched up because I didn’t really extend my hamstring all the way yesterday in fear of delaying repair. It relaxes after I walk on it for a bit so I’m hoping that it blows over and my whole leg is much improved tomorrow. Matt’s leg massage during a post-dinner House Hunters helped. [yeah, I watch it a lot. I've seen every single one!]
Tonight was an "eat what you want" night and we pulled together a bunch of leftovers:
Tomato sauce, roasted veggies, freshly made WHEATBERRIES (!!)
Plus EGGS. The world’s easiest dinner item.
PLUS a canned soup that I’ve had in my pantry for AGES. I’ve planned canned soup on our menu for about 4 weeks in a row and we always end up eating foods in the fridge first. Tonight we combined them all! Amy’s sent me this soup to sample and I have to say it was one of the best canned soups ever (and I really don’t like canned soups!) I was tentative about the smell, but the taste was great! Really sweet.
Garlic Gold also made an appearance. Another food I am surprised I like so much! Because it’s all the good part of garlic – roast + butter and none of that sharp onion flavor.
So what did we make?
Amy’s soup mixed with homemade tomato sauce, leftover roasted veggies and wheatberries topped with a fried egg, goat cheese and fresh basil from Karen’s garden.
After using Justin’s 28 mm lens this weekend, I pulled out the stock lens that came with my Rebel to try to capture some wide angle shots. The frame is great, but the photos just aren’t quite as crisp as my 50mm lens.
Stock lens on left. 50mm on right. Can you see a diff?
My bowl was handmade by a family friend, Mark Latta of Hillsborough!
Broke the yolk!
To drink I mixed POM and water. Didn’t want boring ole water tonight.
Matt shared a bite of his egg + tomato sandwich!
Might have a bite of dark chocolate for my inflammation.
And now I’m going up to take an Epsom Salt bath!! Remember I used to write about Epsom Salt for my public relations job!! They are so good for the muscles – all that magnesium!
