I skipped out on doing a full yoga session on Monday night, so I decided to do it Tuesday morning instead. But I didn’t sleep well and pretty much wanted to fall asleep on my mat (it’s…surprisingly comfy when you’ve only been awake for ten minutes), so I was prepared for a crappy yoga session followed by a really long, annoying day. But…it was actually a great day! I had a lot of energy and things just seemed to be going my way. It all left me feeling like, Well, damnit, now I guess I have to do morning yoga more often.
Last night was my night to cook, and Eric and I have a sort of unofficial rule that we can’t make a frozen pizza for dinner until at least Wednesday night. On Monday or Tuesday it feels like such a cop-out, and a sign that the week is going to be a bad one. But…I wanted to make some other things last night, so I felt like that justified it. I wasn’t not cooking. I just wasn’t cooking dinner.
First up: chai banana bread. With Indiana.
Once that was in the oven, I moved onto the next thing: roasted garlic olive oil. When Eric was making the grocery list on Sunday, I told him we needed five cloves of garlic for a recipe…but he ended up getting five heads of garlic. Because we already had thyme for the roasted veggies I made, I figured it was a good time to give this recipe a try.
I am…not sure how it turned out. I halved the recipe and wasn’t sure what size baking dish to use (and a bunch of the better options were dirty), so that may have had an effect. It smelled good while it was cooking, but it may or may not have really infused the oil. We’ll see.
After I got all fancy with my bread and olive oil, I tried to get fancy with dinner, but there’s only so much you can do with frozen pizza.
Since yesterday went so swimmingly, I kind of figured I should give morning yoga a try again today. I did the same routine as yesterday: a 30-minute Forrest yoga podcast. Once again, I was pretty zoned out during the whole thing, but I’ve felt great ever since finishing it. After yoga, I had some bacon and a hard-boiled egg and made the glaze for the banana bread, and then had a slice with a cup of hot chocolate as I got started on my day!
So good! I love this recipe.
I hope today goes as well as yesterday did but things seem to be off to a promising start!
