1 Plank to Exhaustion
Even though it only 25 minutes to complete, I was EXHAUSTED. Like, could barely get out of bed the next morning. Same for hubby. Every muscle in my body hurt. What more could you ask for in an at home workout that kicks your butt and requires no equipment?
In the opposite approach to...say, 95% of America, I still haven't worked out yet this year. 2 rest days in a row is pretty unusual for me but my ankle hurts, my legs are sore and I'm just not excited about it. So there you go. Rest it is.
Thanks to the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, I was sent a coupon for some Marzetti Simply Dressed salad dressing. I stuck it in my wallet and planned to pick it up whenever I saw it in the grocery store. I finally found it next to the lettuce. What? Apparently it's too cool to hang out in the salad dressing aisle. I chose the pomegranate flavor:
I stuck my finger in the bottle to try it (no shame here) and was shocked. The stuff is SWEET. One of the main ingredients is orange juice concentrate, so I'm guessing that gives it a lot of that sweetness. Surprisingly though, it was really tasty on the salad. They had a champagne flavor as well, which I would probably get next time instead. Booze salads just sound exciting, don't they?
Tonight's dinner: salad with lettuce, cucumber, carrots, tomatoes, celery, almonds and mozzarella cheese. On the side: breadsticks and shrimp.
P.S. - I use the word "breadsticks" very loosely. It actually means cut up a roll that is kind of old and toast in the oven. Feel fancy.
I don't even care that the shrimp weren't completely defrosted when we ate them. Just dunk in that cocktail sauce. So tasty.
What's your favorite salad dressing?
Balsamic vinaigrette all the way. I make a mean at home version, but to be honest I usually just buy a bottle of it. Sometimes I'll just spoon on salsa instead for some flavor.
Shrimp fan or foe?
Such a fan of shrimp. Normally I skip it because I'm cheap, but it's still basically the holidays right? Maybe? Plus shrimp dipped in cocktail sauce makes me feel like I'm at a cocktail party. Even if I'm sitting on my couch watching Jeopardy.
