What Happens When A Girl Cooks on the Grill
Charred food, for $500, Alex?
OK, fine. That may be a wee bit of a generalization. How about what happens when this girl cooks on the grill? haha
Yeah…Shane made the mistake of telling me to “just go ahead and put them on” when I called to him that the veggies were prepped at ready to go. GrillMaster 101: Don’t put the basket of veggies smack dab in the middle of the grill over the flame and walk away for 10 minutes.
The rest of our meal turned out perfectly!
I can tell you I did not grill the rest of our meal. I did make some very tasty mashed potatoes, if I do say so myself!
I never realized how easy making mashed potatoes was until I first made them a couple years ago. Boil, put in stand mixer, add milk, butter, and salt. Mix. I grew up on instant mashed potatoes, so I guess I just figured real mashed potatoes were only for Thanksgiving. Regardless, grilling out was the perfect way to end the weekend.
This morning I got up feeling ready to tackle the week and ready to get a workout in before my first client. Today was week 3 of workout A of boot camp, which is lower body and cardio, which I LOVED last week, and which also left my glutes whimpering the next few days. So today I did it again!
For breakfast, I did something a little different. Lately, I’ve been working out, then training a client, then going home and showering, and then eating breakfast. That’s just too much time in between workout + post workout meal – especially for a strenuous workout.
So today I brought my breakfast with me – smoothie-to-go form
(recycled pic, but exact same shake!)
I felt much better taking Niko for a walk after training when my stomach wasn’t eating my backbone, too. What was eating me? The BUGS! They’re pretty bad this year…although I think they thought I was one of them:
That’s my bugface.
These sunglasses are so ridiculously huge that I always feel like a fly in them
Time to get ready for the BIC…only a few more days!!!!
On the grill: how do you fare for grilling out skills? Obviously, I fall short
