I swear, exercise wins EVERY.SINGLE.TIME!
My blah day turned happy after a wonderful afternoon yoga class. It was one of those classes where I left feeing detoxified – not because I sweated (I didn’t – boo cold gym yoga) but because of all the twisting we did. Rain forced me to drive to the gym instead of bike, but I’m so glad I went.
I am also very glad that I have such an amazing husband (who is massaging my aching shoulders RIGHT NOW!) and who makes amazing homemade pizza:
And also amazing beer. Tonight he declared he had a new one to try: North Coast Brewing’s Pranqster, which is a classic Belgian Golden Strong Ale. I got my usual “hers” pour taste –
It was on the banana side of the yeast spectrum, which is not my very favorite, but I still enjoyed it a lot.
Back to that pizza!
Matt made a 50% whole wheat crust seasoned with flecks of fresh rosemary. It was incredible!!! We made the pizza tomato-free and went with grilled eggplant, mushrooms, dandelion greens (just put on fresh!) and Wisconsin jack cheese! He just informed me from his perch at my shoulders that he also smothered the crust in olive oil, oregano and smoked paprika!
The crustttttttttttt!!!!!!!! Oh the crust!!!!! It was like an herby shortbread cracker.
We had sautéed dandelion greens in Garlic Gold on the side. Boy-oh-boy are they CHEWY and BITTER! But I like ‘em. [Matt wants me to also share that once he picked some from the side of the road when I was out of town and had them for dinner! Ewww! Dirty!]
Delicious dinner!! [Which was not consumed out on the porch because it is bitter cold again – I just needed to borrow the natural light!]
I’d say I’m enjoying a cup of Pero for dessert, but I’m not really enjoying it. I haven’t liked it as much lately (I have maybe a cup a week). I think I’m making it too weak!
Plus, dessert should involve chocolate.
