I indulged this past week and downloaded a cooking reference (I'm hesitant to call it a cook book, but it does have some good recipes). Ratio by Michael Ruhlman. I'm really wanting to cook now.
And he finally explained bread baking in such a way I think I can do it. It's always been a bit of a disappointment that I've never been able to bake bread very well. There are three things I've felt I must conquer in the kitchen as a southern woman: homemade bread, pie crusts and biscuits. I just about have biscuits down. Bread is next. And then pie crusts. Mmmm - really wanting some quiche.
D and I took one day trip while we were on vacation. We drove over to Highlands and down to Whitewater Falls. I haven't been there since my college days.
There was a very short hike put to the falls. It wasn't even that steep of a hike. But it winded me. And that's when I decided it was time to reclaim my health. And I figured out a way to do it - just in time for June's habit - intentionally move 4-5x per week.
I've been kicking and screaming and making every excuse in the book when it comes to my health. I wish it could just happen with out a little bit of work. And as Hemingway says "isn't it pretty to think so?" But it hit me - I don't have to be at work by 8 AM every morning - just Tuesday mornings. So, I can get up at my usual time, have a cup of coffee with D and get myself woken up. And then go for a walk or do a short (30 minutes) strength training program (I like Jari Love for this). This is doable - 4 days a week and on the weekends. And I'm looking forward to it. This is good.
