Yoga and Wine

I made it to Yoga 2 today and it was really good! I was nervous before I went. I get stressed out in yoga when I suck (ironic). But this class wasn’t too challenging for me and I got a good stretch. Love it! This may be my new regular class :)

After yoga I raced home to make dinner. It was only 6pm, but it felt so late! That time change really messes with ya!

I love tempeh for it’s grainy texture and my dinner centered around this:DSCN2060

I made a HUGE stir-fry with tons of veggies, half the tempeh and a sauce I made myself. For this Asian inspired sauce just mix up chili garlic sauce, Sriracha, soy sauce, maple syrup and PB. It was dee-lish! Served on brown rice.DSCN2061

Ben was having wine with dinner and I decided to join him…DSCN2065

Wine makes mid-week dinners more fun!DSCN2066

I managed to avoid the office cake because I had a yummy trail mix for an afternoon snack. I love “bulking up” trail mix with cereal. The more (trail mix) the merrier (me). No pic because I somehow lost my memory card…I am a spaz.

Now I am enjoying a piece of dark chocolate and sipping some gingerbread tea.

DSCN2009Ben’s Random Comment of the Day:

Over dinner Ben and I were talking about money (or a lack thereof) and the economy. The problem is I love Whole Foods (and numerous pricey, but healthy food stuffs)  but it’s not the best way to spend our money right now. He told me…

Ben: “If you were homeless you would save up your pennies until you had $20. Then, you would go to the Whole Foods salad bar.”

Me: “It’s funny because it’s true.”

    I need to ppick up that tempeh. I’ve been afraid of picking up unmarinated tempeh so far because I’m afraid it’d be bland, but I seasoned my own for the first time today and it worked awesomely(plus, I can’t say I mind that funky fermented flavor to begin with)

    major props for avoiding that birthday cake- I have to say just that photo made me want some. Glad you found a yoga class you like!

    I only buy what I can’t find anywhere else at Whole Foods. They’re terribly overpriced. I save tons of money buying what I can at Target. They have a huge grocery section now. Then I buy my produce at farmstands or a cheap, local grocery chain. It saves a lot of money!

    You are too funny. I love your posts because I feel like we have the same sense of humor and I can always relate! Awesome passing up that office cake–no way in hell I would have pulled that one off. You’re doing great by the way.
