Ever tried an orange flesh watermelon?

Go find yourself one. They are good!

Many thanks to local reader, JacobC, for bestowing this baby on me and CD.  We’re still working on it Jacob and loving every bite.

Since I’m all out of frozen cherries, I added 4 big chunks of watermelon to my morning smoothie:

It was weird...I liked it.

Yesterday, I went to a hot vinyasa class, and I was angry the whole time.  I usually love this class, but I wasn’t feeling it yesterday. I think it’s all the gloomy weather we’ve had. :(

But then, a ray of sunshine entered my day when I was reunited with my Justine. We met up for lunch at Brixx Pizza.

J, it had been way too long.  We must not let that happen again!

For  my meal, I ordered the spinach salad with salmon.  Boring and fishy tasting.  I ate it and then proceeded to help Justine finish off her pear and Gorgonzola pizza. Yes, I ate some cheese.  Yes, it was good.

 

Justine, sorry you didn't have any leftovers to take home. Oops.

CD and I bought a hybrid cruiser bike as our gift to one another.  I rode it to work today (6 miles roundtrip).  Thanks CD. I love it!

OK, so many thanks to Allie for her Vita-Mix cleaning advice:

Try running it on high with super hot water and a ton of white vinegar. After running it, then scrub gently with baking soda. Hard water makes a film on it.

Vita is looking much better these days.  Now, about my cast iron skillet…

How do I get rid of this burnt flaky yuck?

I’ve been scrubbing it after each use with a little oil and some salt.  Should I re-season it in the oven.  HELP!

Love to you all.  Enjoy The Office tonight. :)
