Some tunes and What I Ate Wednesday
Some fun for today’s Blogger Challenge Topic: Put your ipod on shuffle and tell us the first 10 songs.
I think mine is a fun representation of me… first, I have a pre-teen daughter so there is leftover music from when she was younger, second – I enjoy classical music, and third – I need some good running music. Two of the songs are songs that Dancing Girl had downloaded a while ago for routines, too.
Need some tunes when I run.
1. You Can’t Stop the Beat – from Hairspray
2. Pachelbel – Canon
3. Just Dance – Lady Gaga
4. Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen
5. It’s Oh So Quiet – Lucy Woodward (from Ice Princess)
6. Song of Spring – Felix Mendelssohn
7. Too Cool – Meaghan Martin
8. Hustle Mix – Rock my Run
9. Feels Like Tonight – Daughtry
10. The Sleeping Beauty – Anatole Fistoulari
I know today is Wednesday and I usually share some yummy food on Wednesdays… so, let’s see what I have from this past week. You’d think there was some good eats since it was my birthday and we had a lot of yummy food. But, I didn’t really take any pictures of the yummy food… bad blogger. Just trust me when I say it was all good.
But, here are a few things…What I Ate Wednesday…
Have you ever microwaved corn in the husk? I learned this technique recently and will never go back. The husk comes off nicely when you’re done. Just throw it in as is for 4-5 minutes.
Also this past week, I made some homemade almond butter. There is nothing easier to make than homemade nut butter. I highly recommend it. This was one pound of almonds, it costs less than $4 from a bulk bin. It made one full jar of nut butter. Keep in the fridge and it stays soft and creamy and is amazing. Let it go in your blender for about 15 minutes – add nothing.
I created a recipe last week that turned out quite well. I shredded a zucchini from my CSA box into some ground beef and seasoned it pretty well. I then mixed in a bit of cheese and put it in some baked won ton wrapper and baked it all together for a bit. YUMMY!
And, finally… my blogger friend Coco was talking the other day about toast. It reminded me how much I love toast and how I lived near a bread bakery when I was in high school. The smell driving by that bakery would push me home to cook up some toast. So, the other day, I had some toast with that homemade almond butter. YUMMY!
What’s on your ipod? Do you love toast? Ever make you own nut butter?
