My cats don’t get dry kibble often. Because when they do, a very fun game commences:
It is called: whack your food out of your bowl onto the floor. Seriously, do I have cats or toddlers here?
Parker is the instigator of this game. But Emmy, a perennial copycat, gladly assists.
Aww, mom, don’t be mad at me for turning your living room floor into a bed of cat food crumbles!
These furry beasts…their antics try my patience sometimes, especially since we all share the same 300 square feet. But I wouldn’t trade ’em for the world.
Today’s EAT: Crab cakes and sweet potato fries!
Did you know that Trader Joe’s has 6-ounce cans of crab for only $1.99? I used two cans for these cakes and ended up with a ridiculously cheap, yet gourmet-seeming, dinner.
Modified this recipe from Eating Well by adding some sauteed minced shallots and orange bell pepper. Also kicked up the spice factor with lots of hot sauce! And obviously I didn’t serve them in burger form, but on their own, with a garlic mayo dipping sauce. Delish!
Today’s DRINK: Friday night means martinis! Wildness!!!
(Hey…we have to find some way to celebrate the weekend if we’re being lame and staying in!)
This week: Strawberry Martinis! On the way home from my run today, I stopped and picked up a bottle of Stoli Strawberi. Chilled and shaken with frozen strawberries and a bit of Prosecco, this made for a fun Friday night cocktail! (I might be on #2 now. Maybe.)
Today’s RUN: After expressing my frustration yesterday and getting some great comments from all of you (thank you!), I decided that Sarah was right and recovery miles aren’t necessarily junk miles. So I did six easy today, along the Hudson, and it felt great. I just have to say, also, thank goodness for cooler weather! I’m not ready to battle heat every day.
I also did an hour of Vinyasa this morning. Friday morning yoga is my favorite – it starts an hour later than the normal weekday morning classes at my gym. 🙂
Today’s QUESTION: What’s your favorite fun cocktail? I’m usually a beer or wine girl, but I love concocting a little something festive once in a while!
