WOOHOOO! It's #FOODIEFRIDAY!
James and I are en route to Salt Lake City for the Two Brain Business Summit Regional Meet-up and we're super excited to hit a few of our favorite SLC restaurants.
So many of us planted gardens this summer and we are being overrun with summer squash. Making zoodles is one of my favorite ways to eat zuchinni. Here's a fantastic recipe from Nom Nom Paleo that is a riff on Pad Thai. Enjoy!
WOOHOOOO! We made it to #foodiefriday!
We have survived a week of an ongoing global pandemic, a terrible fire that destroyed the homes of our friends and neighbors, a freeze that threatened our gardens, and snow on Labor Day which reminded us that we live in Montana.
Personally, I've also had the added stress and worry of my parents AND my in-laws being evacuated from their homes. I don't know about you, but I need a break from all of the catastrophe.
One of the ways I decompress is by cooking delicious food with things I harvested from my garden. Luckily, my entire garden survived and I am dancing with joy that I'll have vine-ripened tomatoes for a few more weeks. I'll be enjoying this salad with a grilled local steak and a yummy meritage.
What will you be eating this weekend?
September Showdown starts on Monday!
We have divided the gym into two super teams based on our median weight. Everyone below the median weight is on team WOD SLAYERS and all of us above the median weight are on team RIG SHAKERS.
You can earn points for your team in the following ways:
1 point for showing up to do the workout on Monday.
2 points for doing something for the first time, e.g. pull-up, toes to bar, etc.
3 points for being in the top 3 Rx or Scaled.
Some workouts have a barbell movement. You can earn additional points if you can lift:
Bodyweight - 5 points
3/4 your bodyweight - 4 points
1/2 your bodyweight - 3 points
1/4 your bodyweight - 2 points
So - all you have to do is show up and do the workouts for the next 4 Mondays and you earn a point for your team. How cool is that? Let's have some fun! The September Showdown is our Fall Fitness Festival!
HIP HIP HORRY it's FRIDAY!
Not only is it #foodiefriday, it's a long weekend and it's the peak of summer harvest. Make sure you harvest your tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, onions and garlic this weekend because it's supposed to free on Monday.
Gather all of your most favorite summer veggies and get ready to make a summer harvest classic, Ratatouille.
This Ratatouille takes a long time, it's the perfect recipe for a long weekend. Enjoy!
TGIF! Are you ready for a great weekend?
I share this amazing recipe with you every summer and I hope you love it as much as I do.
Dixon melons are in season and available at the farmers' market and via Root Cellar Foods. My order is being delivered to my house today and I will enjoy this soup at my campsite tonight. How will you enjoy this amazing soup? Share with us in the comments.
