Pie, Yoga, Dinner and a Movie

24 Jun

Wednesday, oh Wednesday, such a great day this week, I wish more of my days were like it. πŸ™‚

I went over to a friend’s place where we made Strawberry Rhubarb pie…from scratch cause ya know, that’s how we roll. πŸ˜‰ That and homemade pie is the best! Mmm!

She made the filling and I made the crust and I gotta say, they both turned out quite well. πŸ™‚

While the dough was chilling in the fridge the two of us went and did some yoga, she has a Jillian Michael’s yoga workout which nearly killed me lol I figured it was going to help me earn a slice of the pie though so ya know, goals. πŸ™‚

I started making lattices on the pies (we made three pies in total) while she went and picked up one of her kids, once everyone was under the roof I went and showered (I’m tellin ya that yoga workout makes ya sweat, ugh) and when I got back to the kitchen she had magically morphed it from a temporary bakery to a proper kitchen and dinner was well on its way. Something you need to know is she is a Chef -notice the capital C? Which means no silly little dinner is being made in her kitchen, she only makes awesome meals that I love eating but have no idea how to make lol

I don’t know why I took this picture as such a stupid angle, it is not doing the meal justice at all!

There is wheat barley, sauteed veggies (specifically mushrooms, baby tomatoes and peas) then salmon (perfectly cooked in case you were wondering) with grated white radish (there is a fancy, proper name for the radish but I can’t remember it) and of course a delicious sauce that had miso paste, two different kinds of mustard, honey and I think something else in it…I don’t have enough descriptive words to describe how great this meal was. She got the inspiration from the website http://www.cookswithcocktails.com The dish is a copy of a meal from the Cactus Club but I’d bet money my friend’s version is better than the one in the restaurant. πŸ˜€

After dinner there was no time for eating pie because we were off to go see Finding Dory, and all I can say about baby Dory is awwwwww sooooo cute! And before you think we were two weirdo adults going to see a kids movie we had one kid and two teenagers with us, so basically they were our camouflage lol πŸ˜‰ The movie is totally worth the price of the ticket but I’d skip paying for 3D if I was you.

baby dory

Possibly even cuter than Nemo!



Being all tryna-lose-weight-girl that I am I packed snacks for the theatre…yes, I have become that person. Buuuuut I ended up buying some frozen yoghurt that I got topped with fruit, I haven’t been able to figure out the nutritional information yet so I kinda guessed when tracking. Oops?

Movie finished and back to the pies…er, I mean, her house, we went! The draw of going back wasn’t at all the pies, nope, of course not! πŸ˜‰ We served them with a choice of vanilla ice cream or Cool Whip, turns out her kids had never had Cool Whip! The poor deprived souls, such a sad existence, *sad sigh*, so luckily I remedied that! teehee…I am not always a good influence πŸ˜›

And yeah, that was my Wednesday. I guess all-in-all a simple day but it was fun, and filled with people I like being around, and baking and eating and just enjoyable times. We should all have more days like that. πŸ™‚
