Happy Pi Day! The one day of the year a small part of me wishes I were a math teacher.
Actually, I don’t think I ever want to be a math teacher, even today. Science and PE just sound a lot more fun.
I wish I had pie for you, but I don’t. I do have some delicious bean sprouts and tempeh, though! And some fun facts (or lazy writing…your call)
Fact 1: I got my hip X-rayed today. The doctor wants to make sure everything looks good around the hardware (the 3 titanium screws I’ve had since my femoral neck stress fracture about 13 years ago). I’m hoping for good news.
Fact 2: If you roast red potatoes and sweet potatoes together and make a salad out of them, you’ll be glad you did.
Fact 3: Someone is 6 months and 2 days old today, and is entirely too grown up, sitting in her high chair and eating bananas like she’s been doing it forever.
Fact 4: I’ve now done this DVD twice and I’m a believer. I don’t necessarily think I’m going to have a six-pack in six weeks, but I know that my abs will be stronger, and of course I’m a fan of that.
Fact 5 (thanks for sticking with me): The vanilla bean snickerdoodles in Joy the Baker’s cookbook are incredible, and are definitely contributing to my lack of six-pack (but they’re worth it).
I know bean sprouts aren’t exactly glamorous, but they cook amazingly quickly, and they’re incredibly satisfying to grow yourself (which we just did for the first time!) Here they get stir-fried in a very simple mix of orange juice, soy sauce, and honey, then topped with sesame seeds and avocado. Served over quinoa, it’s a nice quick, healthy meal.
