It’s Monday… you know what that means!
Pump Challenge with Chris!!! As usual, he killed us with long holds, long songs and heavy weights! Holding this 15 pounder in the photo had my already-fatigued arm shaking!
flirts talks to Chris at our gym and recently asked him if he was “the same cute Body Pump instructor that my daughter-in-law raves about on Mondays.” Turns out he is
She told him all about KERF and that I’d written about him and also that I’d bring my camera and put him on the blog! So I did
Post-BP order of business – A shower and a sandwich!
When I arrived at the bakery there was a small mis-formed loaf of Cinnamon Raisin Walnut on the kneading table. I tasted a hunk – hunka hunka!!! Delicious! So I copied Matt and had a Curried Tuna
Wow this combo was awesome. Cinnamon and curry go so well together, and the walnuts – even better!
I mentioned yesterday that I’ve been reading MamaPea’s book – Peas and Thank You: Simple Meatless Meals the Whole Family Will Love. I’m the first stop on the PEA Virtual Blogger Book tour!! MamaPea’s publisher sent me the book to
drool on preview! The book comes out on July 26 (yeaaaah 26!)
First off I’ll say that I just love MamaPea. How can you not!? She is the wittiest person I know, and her posts are always SO clever I am always shocked at how she comes up with the themes and one-liners (although I still haven’t forgiven her for implying Celine Dion is corny this morning )
And above all, she has branded the cutest pun of all time!!! Still bitter I didn’t think of that one
I also just love Gigi, Lulu, Pea Daddy, Pea Kitty – reading about them is like a sitcom of laughter, and the book brings continues the story on paper.
In between delicious, creative, healthy recipes are stories and photos about the girls, MamaPea’s life and family. Of course there is more sarcasm than there are oatmeal posts on KERF, so I have really enjoyed reading the segments.
I haven’t had a chance to make any of the book’s recipeas yet, but I’m sure they are good. I’ve tried a handful of MamaPea’s recipeas from her blog. We are similar throw-together cooks (although I think she wins the successful recipea award!)
This was definitely one of the best cookbooks I’ve browsed – from the photography (go Ashley!) to the stories to the variety of recipea content.
I have to say, though, that my favorite part of the book was browsing the index and seeing a “Hugh Jass Salad” in the mix. Hilarity. And so MamaPea.
I am only sorry I did not see Saltines in the index. Because I’m not sure I want to do this again!
