So, I’m still enjoying datecation! No dealbreakers yet.
Last night was pretty much my perfect Tuesday night. Eric took me to his spin class, which I was ridiculously excited about. There had been a little trash-talking in the weeks leading up to this. I was pretty sure I was going to rock out in this class, no matter how hard Eric said it was.
Then I sort of unintentionally took three weeks off from teaching spinning (my classes kept getting canceled) and when I did it at home, I couldn’t push myself too hard because I was too sore from Thighs & Glutes. And I realized…I might be in for a rude awakening! I decided last week to start pushing myself a little more, but damn that Core Fusion…I just can’t jump as fast as I used to! (Not complaining — my thighs and glutes look better than they ever have. I pretty much walk around pantsless all the time.)
I was a little nervous for the class last night, and my fears were not without merit; it was so hard. I haven’t been to a class in months and I haven’t been to a class that hard in, well…a few years! It was absolutely ridiculous — Uncle Jesse workout for sure.
But we all need a good ass kicking every now and then, so it was nice to get mine!
I planned to make pizza last night for dinner, figuring we’d want a carb-fest after the workout. On Monday I e-mailed my best friend Beth and asked her for her famous Greek pizza recipe. She had it once in Greece and came home and miraculously knew how to make it just perfectly. I’ve never made it myself, but she taught me! (But it’s still not as good as hers!)
- Brush a pizza crust (either homemade or store-bought) very lightly with olive oil and then season it with a good seasoned salt. I also used a Greek seasoning blend which can be damn hard to find; when I saw it at Super Target on Monday, I was all over it!
- Saute minced garlic, red onion, and zucchini (optional) in olive oil and herbs (rosemary, thyme) and then add baby spinach at the last minute. Spinach wilts really quickly, so it doesn’t need to be in the pan long!
- Top the crust with the sauteed veggies, sprinkle with a shredded white cheese blend, and top with diced feta, and fresh tomatoes (which I forgot).
- Bake for 8-10 minutes in a 450 degree oven.
It’s delicious! I mean really, you just cannot go wrong with this! We had it with wine and I found myself saying, “I want to get drunk so I have an excuse to come back and eat more of this later tonight.”
It was a perfect post-FDAU dinner. (And post-FDAU snack if you know what I mean.)
All right, I’m off! Time for a workout, iced coffee run, and shower. I’m not on cooking duty tonight; we’re going out to dinner so I need to pull it together and look like a lady instead of my current state that’s somewhere between “Walk of Shame” and “hot mess.”
Have a great Wednesday night!
