I spent the early morning cooking up tonight’s dinner. The catch 22 about making dinner everyday is that I hate cooking when I’m tired and hungry late in the day, but cooking in the morning – right after breakfast – when not hungry isn’t terribly appealing. But once I get going on a meal in the morning, I actually really enjoy cooking so much more than I do later on.
Hence all the progress photos! Morning light is so much better, and I’m not in a rush to eat, so I don’t mind pausing for a photograph. It’s too bad all hot dinners can’t be made this way….
Recipe coming tonight : )
I walked to Body Pump and back after doing the dishes. I have given up on the bar and am exclusively using free weights these days. The bar is just a little too heavy and awkward to manage with the weight level I use (10 lbs on each side) so it’s just easier for me to get two 10 pounder free weights and do it that way. It’s a slightly different effect, but the same burn.
Back home, when I opened the fridge to get out some eggs to hard-boil, I realized we had a portion of leftover lasagna that needed demolishing. Along with some angel hair pasta. So I whipped …dinner for lunch!
I added some cottage cheese to the angel hair to amp up the protein. It kind of melted away in the microwave, but I actually enjoyed it that way!
Big salad on the side – dressed simply in olive oil, honey and salt. Fresh, fresh lettuce!
There’s something about having the AC on that reminds me of being in high school. Perhaps even better pinpointed to the summer before I went to college. Something about the air right now reminds me of dorm room shopping…
And with that, I’m out to run errands!
