I wanted to blog the other night. I’m pretty sure I had something incredibly important to say, but I might have wanted to extoll the virtues of Cheese Sauce. Alas, I was without internet, and therefore unable to post. Granted, I was without internet partially by choice. I neglected to tell The Hippy it wasn’t working, and I also neglected to poke around on our network computer to see if the password was saved. I still don’t know, to be honest, because sometimes I really need a reason to keep the computer turned off.
So instead I sewed a little (will blog about that later) and decided I would take up yoga. I’ve had a beginners yoga video for years that I got at a thrift store. I’m pretty sure I saw the screen that told me I would need props and said “screw this.” But I decided there was no time like the present, props be damned. As it turned out, I could have used the props, but I just improvised. I may or may not look into a block, but it may also be that I scrounge around the house until I find something block-like.
I thoroughly enjoyed yoga. Way more than I ever thought I would. I would truly like to keep it up, simply because I have longed to be flexible my entire life. I like to think it will also help my posture. And it can’t hurt my bowling. I’m blogging right now when I should be doing yoga and ball exercises–I only have so much time before The Hippy comes home and laughs at me for exercising. But the house was too cold, and I was getting too hungry. I will. I promise.
But first, I still need to extoll the virtues of cheese sauce. I made my very first cheese sauce last week. I’ve never been one to shy away from a gastronimical challenge, so I certainly wasn’t going to allow myself to be daunted by a cheese sauce. And I’m so glad I didn’t! I followed this recipe and used brown rice instead of pasta. I also used frozen peas and broccoli. And I ate the whole damn thing myself. Over the course of a few days, natch. The Hippy doesn’t know what he missed. He wasn’t home for dinner, and he has an irrational fear of leftovers. Which works well for me. I don’t have to make lunches anymore!
Mmmm… Cheese sauce. (Seriously, given my love of nacho cheese, why are we surprised I loved this recipe? Hmm, now I want a cheesy double beef burrito……..)
