And by cooking for two… I mean cooking for one x2. Quick re-cap of our standard dinner routine. Steve asks me what I want. I respond with some non-meat product. Steve claims I don’t eat anything other than “rabbit food”. I ask Steve what he wants. He responds with some kind of meat. I call him a carnivore. And then we ultimately end up cooking two totally separate meals. This wouldn’t be a big deal except that we don’t exactly have what you would call a large kitchen. (Note for my future home: Double oven and a stove with at least 6 burners) Good times.
Last night though – we reached a semi-compromise! Score. We made home-made pizza. (And by home-made, I mean we bought pre-made crust, and pre-made sauce and just threw it together…) Anyways – the only differences were in our toppings – which is a lot easier to prepare than two different meals that need different oven settings. Steve’s side: pretty standard with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, green peppers, onions, and mushrooms. My side: Blue cheese, green peppers, onions, mushrooms. Perfect.
Random fact: I HATE melted cheese. It creeps me right the ef out. I don’t like that it’s stringy – how are you supposed to eat it when it never breaks and its just this huge long string of goo!? It reminds me of having a really bad sinus infection where you have a lot of mucus that is stringy like that. (TMI, maybe?) Anyways – this is why I can’t have “normal” cheese on my pizza. Creepin’ me out.
Conclusion: Awesome dinner.
As usual, Mondays mean spinning and lifting. I always try to lift on days that I spin / bike because otherwise, I would get zero upper body work done. It’s never anything terribly structured or planned – just different exercises that keep these guns of mine lookin’ good 😉 I get in some bicep curls, tricep dips, bench pressing, rowing, lateral pull-downs, and maybe some shoulder presses if I have time. I can try to be more specific if anyone’s interested… but really, I just try to work a variety of my upper body muscles before hopping on the bike.
