yin yang yoga + saturday things

today i woke up around 9, laid in bed for a while, then started work in the kitchen. this week b and i got an order from the fruit guys (i wanted to try them out; i want to join a csa but they don’t run in the winter) so i decided to use up that produce. we got (this was the “regional fruit & veggie”):

  • 4 beets
  • bunch of spinach
  • yellow fingerling potatoes (a bunch of small ones)
  • scallions
  • mushrooms
  • 4 apples (different kinds)

i made a frittata and a “breakfast bar”-type thing. i’ll post recipes separately. the delivery is free; the box was $26. it’s definitely overpriced but it was convenient. i’m not sure if i’ll order it again.

Walking the Happy Walk & the Aisle

I have had a really amazing 6 day streak of happiness. Ever since Wednesday night I’ve been over the moon. Since I’m in such a good mood I wanted to give an update about the thing that makes me the happiest girl in the world: getting married to Bobby, the most amazing man I have ever met! (The engagement post is here.) I am also excited about a product review that I’m going to do for a company that sells bar stools – stay tuned icon smile Walking the Happy Walk & the Aisle Maybe I will get some bar stools for my wedding, hehe.

We have picked a place for the ceremony – the meetinghouse I grew up going to in Yardley, PA. Here is a nice picture (this is in the winter):

They are so sweet – when my dad told them I was getting married they blocked off every weekend in July for us (we still haven’t picked the exact date).

Recipe: Banana Oat Cookies (with goodies!)

One of my very first recipes I ever posted was a recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies. I had been making them almost nightly for my housemates (this was my last semester at Cornell in December 2007)and they were disappearing as quickly as I could cook them. I called them Oatmeal Raisin Applesauce Cookies; that was one of the first times I “healthified” a recipe.

This weekend I spent time in New Jersey visiting my family. My sister is an avid baker and she wanted to make oatmeal cookies on Saturday, so of course I recommended my recipe. We were out of applesauce and I don’t believe in margarine anymore so I told her how to change it around. They came out so well that I want to repost it here.
