CSA Week 7 and Meal Planning (plus a video!)

15 Oct

(Video is working now! Sorry for the false promise last night.)

Hello all! Here is a rare late-night post from me. It’s basically my bed time right now, but I wanted to get this posted while I have access to the photos on my home computer, so without further ado, here’s my CSA haul for the week:

Behold a very green bounty:

  • mint x2
  • oregano
  • parsley
  • cilantro
  • Swiss chard
  • red leaf lettuce
  • butternut squash
  • carrots
  • zucchini x5
  • green bell peppers x2
  • fuyu persimmons x2
  • eggplants x3

My mister was curious about the persimmons, so we consulted Google to ensure these were the sweet fuyu and not the tart hachiyas. Once satisfied, he took a bite, and I caught it on video. I think he’s pretty cute:

We are going to let the other one ripen longer before sinking any teeth in.

So where’s it all going? Here is the plan:

Sunday brunch: zucchini pancakes with tomato sauce

Breakfasts: Baked banana oatmeal


  • Weekdays — Butternut squash/lentil tacos (me), black bean tacos (him)
  • Saturday — Leftovers in some configuration


  • Sunday — Quinoa Confetti Casserole from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan
  • Monday/Tuesday — Coconut curry in the slow cooker
  • Wednesday — Pasta with veggies and tomato sauce and salad
  • Thursday/Friday — Black bean soup and sautéed Swiss chard
  • Saturday — Veggie and noodle stir fry

And as for workouts, I am a slave to my 10K training plan.


So that slices up to be:

Monday – strength
Tuesday – three-mile run plus strides
Wednesday – stretching and hip-opening yoga
Thursday – four-mile run
Friday – strength
Saturday – two-mile run plus strides
Sunday – five-mile run

That’s the look of my week from a food and fitness perspective. Tomorrow I will have a fun recap of some delicious breakfast recipes. See you then!

The Dreams of an Indoor Pug-tzu

25 Jul

Ooo friends, I have exciting news: I found BOTH of my cameras AND their chargers! Wahoo! That means real posts with real pictures this week. Huzzah! In the meantime, I wanted to share this awesome video made by the boy starring none other than my sweet li’l Sully. Behold and be glad you did.

Catch you again soon!

Me on the news!

9 Jun

This has nothing to do with food, but I was on the news this morning promoting the ShakeDown in T-Town Shakespeare Festival 2011, of which I’m the Managing Director. If you’d like to see what I look and sound like as a fully formed human being, check out the video. I’m the faux redhead in the black shirt, not the tall blonde in the fancy attire.

Vegging out on video

16 Nov

I apologize for what you are about to see, namely me on a Monday morning.

Actually, in the grand scheme of things, I suppose I am a morning person, though my face doesn’t always show it. Anyway, check out the video and give me your input.

Is it a bird? Is it a seal? Is it Superman?
