Monthly Archives: October 2011


Just enjoying my evening before a full day of hellacious science experiments tomorrow. Probably have some of these leftovers.

Much improved upon just by switching to Frontera enchilada sauce!

And a pumpkin spice latte tomorrow morning might take the edge off. My special treat because Starbucks is one of the few places open before the 7am shuttle. Grrrrr. I think I’m going to need to bake something on Saturday.


Mondays don’t have to suck.

Hip Hop Yoga, I’m officially addicted. And sore, and dehydrated, and all the other things that happen after truly great exercise. Note, remember to take your eye makeup off.

In other news, I made a frittata without injuring myself! And it was fantastic with leftover cornbread. And will be fantastic for lunch as well.

Cheesy, leeky, thymey, eggy goodness

I also began 2 weeks of meditation practice this morning. It’s on my 101 list and I think it would be a good skill to develop. It’s NOT EASY but I’ve heard that it gets easier with time.

I still want cookies.

What happens when food bloggers unite

Jess Vogel, I am still in a food coma. It might be because I’m still eating.

What do you do after a 90 minute hot yoga class? You eat! But I ate enough brisket at lunch at Zaftig’s yesterday to ensure that I didn’t eat again until 11 today. And when I did…

This soup is fall in a bowl. I’m sad that it’s gone, and will definitely make it again soon.

Until then, to fulfill my fall cravings…it’s football Sunday!

This chili is fantastic. Tomatoey, spicy, warm, and served with Joanne Chang’s double corn corn bread with thyme, it is heaven in a bowl.

I also made oatmeal raisin cookies that I cannot explain to you what happened. They’re huge, they’re thin, they’re crispy like a cracker…I do not understand. But I will eat them.

As far as exercise goes, I plan on using this next month to really get into a lot of yoga classes and work out some kinks before I start training again. All those little twinges in the muscles that you can ignore for “one more week”, well, it’s time. My goal is to be able to foam roller my IT band by the end of November. Without crying.
