Happy Chinese New Year! We used the holiday as an excuse to get the family together for a Peter’s Kitchen feast.
Seafood was the theme. Squid, shrimp, tomato, and onion salad with tortilla chips. Salmon, sea bass, snow peas. Jumbo tiger shrimp.
I’ve also been getting back into yoga. I took a break from going to studio classes last fall when I knew I’d be too busy to take full advantage of a monthly unlimited pass.
I recently redeemed a Groupon for 5 classes at a different power yoga studio and have been rediscovering ALLLLL those little muscles my body forgot about. Especially the core muscles…man oh man ohhhhh man.
Speaking of rediscovering little muscles, I got a kettlebell from Marshall’s last week to help change up my strength workouts (I’ve been loving kettlebell swings!). While Googling kettlebell exercises, I learned it’s actually kettleBELL and not kettleBALL (what I had been saying all along).
When I first realized my silly mistake, I felt like a lost puppy! I couldn’t believe I’d been saying it wrong my whole entire life.
Just like the word “plyometric.” I spent months studying for my personal training certification saying “PYlometric” in my head when it’s actually PLyometric. Talk about feeling dumb.
I got a visit from the Chobani fairy last week! He (fairies can be boys, too) delivered the new flavahs and a cute little spoon.
Banana 2% (my fav of the new bunch), pear 0%, coffee + chocolate, and fig + orange zest. I’m a 2% yogurt gal, so whatever flavor that is always wins.
Oh and I spotted these Pringles in a magazine. Say what?!
How did I not find these?! Can we rewind to the holidays? We must. Did you try these? Were they the most amazing tasting chips ever?
The delicious work meetings/outings continue…
This was my first time ever trying raw oysters. I had eaten cooked oysters before, but never raw. It was good, but I think I prefer the cooked variety.
Lollipop roll! Salmon, tuna, white tuna, real crab and avocado. How cute.
I’ve finally identified two of my favorite types of raw fish: mackerel and yellowtail tuna.
Dessert was vanilla bean gelato tempura topped with whipped cream and raspberry sauce. The outside was a sweet rice crust!
Something about salads from restaurants are so much tastier. This was an arugula salad with a delicious mix of toppings: roasted pears, bleu cheese, almond slivers, carrots, onions, grilled shrimp w/ balsamic vinaigrette. The combo of nuts and soft cheese is just fab.
That’s all for now! Later, gators.
Tell me: Any words you said wrong for years? What’s your favorite yogurt flavor?
