After a quick hot apple + granola bar crumble snack, guess who went to BIKRAM YOGA!? Me. And willingly. I love the heat and I love my friend Seamane, who goes weekly to Wednesday’s class. And I also got a free class pass for my birthday month (yes, I realized that is over, but it’s good for 30 days past!).
The class was actually the best Bikram I’ve been to – thanks to Kirk, a super laid back (relatively) instructor who did not bark or yell at us.
I still hated the opening arm breathing.
I still hated the flip and flop savasanas in-between the second half floor poses.
But the rest of it I liked. And that, my friends, is good!
I came home to a brewfest going on
The Dogfish 120 Minute IPA is hard to get your paws on. And expensive! So expensive I’m not telling how much Matt paid for this, but I can assure you it was worth it.
This beer is 18% alcohol. More than a glass of wine! But it tastes incredible. Sticky, toffee, hoppy good.
I love the 90 Minute as well!
Dinner tonight was equally good.
I don’t buy cauliflower that much, mostly because it’s expensive (did you just read about that beer above? Hypocrite.) and it’s white. It doesn’t seem all that vegetably to me. But it IS very good for you. And if you buy expensive beers, it’s pretty cheap stuff. So I bought some at Saturday’s farmer’s market and knew exactly what I would do with it: make Whole Foods cauliflower. Luckily a famous Pea Mama already copy-catted the recipe for me!
But first. Let me tell you something depressing and something gross.
Somebody who had recently consumed an 18% beer grabbed a super thin tea towel to use as a pot holder and dropped the ENTIRE PAN on the floor!!! And somebody else did not clean the floors today. Or yesterday. Or the day before.
A few tears might have been shed. But then we just drank more 18% beer, checked it for giant crumbs , dirt or hairs, and put it back in the oven to kill any bacteria.
And then we ate it. So sue me. That’s how good MamaPea’s recipe was! [And for the record, I didn’t see any dirt or hairs, so our floors must have been pretty clean! #thisiswhyimgladidonthaveadog
The second equally delicious part of dinner were our bison burgers. Matt made two Rosemary Garlic buns at the bakery today. This was the BEST burger bun EVER!! The rosemary was just incredible. I swear it wasn’t the 18% – it was the bun!
Mine was slider-size and it was perfect.
With dinner we also enjoyed a beer our Pennsylvania blog friends brought us, because 18% is too much to enjoy with food 😉
Time for more Lord of the Rings!
