Recipes...

I made chimichurri sauce last night. It was fantastic! I have had some requests for the recipe. 

Chimichurri
-1 bunch parsley
-1 bunch cilantro (I'm not a big fan of cilantro, but it works in this recipe)
-3 Tbs red wine vinegar
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-3 Tbs water
-6 Tbs olive oil
-6 cloves of garlic (this is optional. We really like garlic so I load it up)
These are not hard core measurements. More or less of everything can be added. I like vinegar so I add extra. 
Put everything in a blender and blend until well blended. 
Goes very well with beef

Roasted Vegetables
This works for any vegetable. I do broccoli mostly. I have also done potatoes, cauliflower and asparagus. Recipe is based off of what I did yesterday.
-Parsnips
-Carrots
-Eggplant (slice eggplant and salt heavily. Place on paper towels or rack for 30 minutes minimum to extract water)
-Tomato

Preheat oven to 450
Chop veggies
Place on cookies sheet.
Toss with olive oil, coarse salt and pepper
Roast for 20-30 minutes until soft *stir midway through cooking*
I finely dice all veggies so that Owen and Carter can easily eat them. Any size is fine. 

I made sirloin steak with the chimichurri sauce. We had veggies and Quinoa (follow package directions) as well. All was delicious.

7 Year Itch...

Things are changing y'all.... About six weeks ago I applied for a part time therapist job, on a whim. A month went by and I had not heard anything about the job, I assumed it wasn't going to happen and carried on with life. Then I got a phone call asking me to come in for an interview! Over the course of the month between applying for the job and the interview I had talked myself out of wanting to do it. Cause, that's what I do. I went into the interview thinking it would just be good practice and I had zero intentions of pursuing the position.  Last year I applied for a job I really wanted. It was somewhere I had always wanted to work and was so excited about the prospect. I was told that the job was mine, then I was emailed and told that a former employee had emailed and said she might be moving back to Tulsa and they were going to give the position to her. I was devastated. Then a few weeks later I was emailed again offering me the job again. Needless to say I declined b…

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

I See The Light....

When I left you guys I had just taken a new part time job! Happy to say that is going well. I started the week of Spring Break, so that was not the best timing, but it worked out. Then the kids were in school for a week and our Oklahoma teachers walked out. Thankfully #1 cheers at a gym that is full of teenage girls willing to babysit. I won't lie. There have been some growing pains, and I still haven't figured out how to keep up with my laundry. There are days I work well past 2pm and the kids beat me home from school. Every highway in TTown is under construction and getting downtown to work by 8am is nearly impossible. I think it is understood by my new employers that I will be perpetually late for eternity because they are never going to finish the construction. But, overall I like my new job. I like being around grown ups, and the extra $$$ is a nice perk.
Spring time in the Mayer house is notoriously a busy busy time for us. We have millions of end of the school year thin…
