Aching For Activity

Ah…the weather is just beautiful today! I am so ready for these headaches and soreness to really start going away because I really wanted to run after work, but I don’t want to push it. Nick and I did take about a 30 minute walk after work, and that was really nice – it is seriously just the perfect weather: in the 70s, clear blue sky, slight breeze….I guess this made up for the fact that it was in the 30s last night!

After our walk, I started on our stuffed dinner –

I made the Greek Orzo Stuffed Peppersfrom the April Eating Well, but with a few changes….like always  :)

  • Instead of steaming the peppers, I roasted them in a 425 oven for about 25 minutes (mainly because I was cooking zucchini, too, so I just threw everything in the oven)
  • I doubled the amount of orzo to use up what I had and so we might have some leftover for a lunch or two

The zucchini was just sliced and dredged in a mix of cornmeal/soy parm/pepper and cooked on a baking sheet in the oven with the peppers. I flipped them once around 13 minutes? and then baked for 10-15 more minutes.

I’ve had a pretty bad headache all day, so I’m going to take some more meds, watch American Idol and have some of this:

popcorn

 

What’s your favorite tv or movie-watching snack?
