Post-Workout Grapefruit Sherbet [Recipe] + WIAW

You know it’s hot when your shoulders sweat.

At least I wipe off my bench at the gym! 

If I do cardio, I prefer to do it after I lift so I don’t get too tired.  The problem is that it’s a 10 minute jog to the gym, so I feel like I should just add on another 20 and be done with it.  Yesterday was one of those days.  By the time I arrived at the gym I was burning up and covered in sweat.

Lifting after that was hard at first, but I got into the groove.  I felt bad about being so sweaty in the weight section, but hey… it IS a gym.  And I am a good citizen of the gym world – I always use the stray to clean off my sweat puddles.  Unlike some other people.

Savory Cornbread Waffles [Recipe]

I waiver between sweet and savory breakfasts.

More often than not, I turn to Vegas and say “sweet or savory?”

These cornbread waffles were the result of an indecisive morning.  I wanted a waffle, but I wanted a runny egg.  There was really no way this wouldn’t result in a strange but good morning.

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes [Gluten-Free Recipe]

Pancakes are never a bad idea.

Especially when you have a super-ripe banana. 

My bananas have two speeds: too green or too brown.  How do I miss that window of a perfectly yellow banana?  I guess I can’t complain if it results in pancakes!

I’m not going back to school.

That would be strange and not good.  

Grade school, college, and grad school was enough for me, but congrats to all the kids (and their parents) braving the start of the year!  I’m here for you in spirit… and in taking the strange but goodness to school.

If I was going back to school or sending a kid to school, here are 10 Back-to-School Recipes I would make.

Roasted Garlic Matzo Ball Chicken Soup [Recipe]

Soup in August?

When you’re sick, that’s a must. 

Some of my souper creations were chilled, but the recipe I’m going to share today is for a hot soup often referred to as Jewish Penicillin.

Vegas caught a summer cold.  How you can get a cold in the summer, I have no idea… but it happens to me about once a year.  And apparently to Vegas.  I decided to cure her with a big bowl of Matzo Ball Chicken Soup.

S’mores Protein Pancakes [Gluten-Free Recipe]

S’mores don’t have to wait for dessert.

I mean, what ISN’T good in pancake form?

I still had graham crackers and marshmallows leftover from my S’mores Brownies… I had to use them some how!  Why not for breakfast as a pancake?

Maybe it’s a little strange to have a campfire dessert first thing in the morning,  but it sure is good!

Jerky Heaven [Giveaway] + WIAW

I’m a snack junkie.

If I’m honest I’d rather snack and have a meal. 

If you’re a snacker like me, you can imagine my excitement when I received a GIANT box of jerky from Jack Link’s.  Turkey jerky, teriyaki turkey jerky, chicken jerky… it is basically outdoor snacking deliciousness.

And by outdoors, I don’t just mean sports (though Vegas and my favorite softball snack is jerky).

Revisiting Strange But Good

Normalcy* has returned.

*I use that term loosely.

Vegas and I made it back from Vegas leaving the 115 degree temps behind.  The sun is out again in San Diego and it’s a balmy 75 degrees.

I feel like I'm on fire (ball). Thank you Las Vegas. 🔥

It’s Not Always Sunny in San Diego (or Vegas)

It’s been one of those weeks.

I’m not really sure what day it is… 

I started the week in San Diego, now I’m in Vegas, and I’m driving back to San Diego tonight.  What’s more confusing is that this weekend in San Diego it POURED down rain.  I thought it wasn’t supposed to rain in paradise?!  (Actually this is a good thing since California is having a drought.)

It was also Pride weekend, so I watched the wet hot mess from a bar.
