A chef’s wife/ yoga teacher’s guide on how NOT to make an “asana” out of yourself… off the mat and in the kitchen!
I really wish California would decide whether it’s summer or fall here. Today it’s about 90 degrees out and just yesterday it was a cool 70. I am so confused as to what to wear, what to make for dinner and if it’s too early, or not, to start making savory soups! I thought the weather in Chicago was crazy but it’s a surprise day to day here. Speaking of Chicago, did you all see that Cubs win last night? Good for them! I haven’t seen my husband this excited since they made it to the playoffs eight years ago! I came home to him in full Cubs gear last night (potholder included) and a fresh baked Chicago-style pizza. I could get used to this…. that is until the Cubs meet the Red Sox in the future… haha!!! read more…
