A few random notes for today -
I'm watching "Iron Chef America" while I write this. Anyone else addicted to this show? I adore sitting and watching master chefs work their magic, often with a featured ingredient that I would have no idea what to do with. Like today's ingredient is mango. That's a fruit I've never learned to like - it's just a bit too sweet for me. But it's fascinating to see what they're doing. Mario Batali (a favorite of mine) made several amazing looking dishes that I would love to try...even with mango! Also, for this show, they've got a new twist: each chef has a master mixologist on hand, and they have to make a cocktail/drink to go with each dish. Hmmm... I'm loving this show more than ever, LOL! The drinks also look awesome.
On the exercise front, I've worked out twice this week, which I'm pleased with. Yesterday I did some elliptical and strength training, and today I ran and(yes) did pushups. Ow! I apologize that I am behind on encouraging you guys for the pushup program - but don't stop now! I think we may be "supposed" to retest again this week. I will check and post an update for Friday. Meanwhile, let me know how you are all doing!
[PS: All this exercise is cutting into my blogging time. Must figure out a way to blog while walking!]
Meanwhile, with fall coming up I'm getting my food priorities back on track. The last few nights I have sat down for a while and started (or continued) the list of favorite and new recipes that I want to make/try this fall and winter. I've now filled two pages of single space paper. And I'm nowhere near done yet. There are so many awesome new recipes that have been featured on the blogs I read, that I can't stop adding new ones to the list! Perhaps because of all that exposure to awesome looking recipes, I ate almost everything in sight today. I'm not kidding - it wasn't pretty! All this
All's well here otherwise. I have some catching up to do in returning comments and bloggy love (and responding to several awesome awards I've gotten), but I will definitely get caught up here shortly! And I'll have a new recipe for you Friday. So stay tuned, eat well and take care of yourselves this week!
