To survive a Georgia you need two things: appropriate clothing and ice cream cake. First the clothing issue….
One thing I do not understand- people who wear long sleeves and/or pants in the gym in the summer. How do they do it?
I sort of understand if it is winter time. Especially if it is one of those people that just reads a magazine/ talks on the phone while kinda moving their legs on the bike. You know those people I’m talking about? I’m sure every gym has them.
But when it is 100 degrees outside, and the AC is terrible in the gym, even the fake exercisers need to wear some short sleeves and shorts! When I go to spin class, even a cotton tee is too much; I need a dri-fit tank top or I will die of heat exhaustion. (I’m only being slightly dramatic.) Some people wear pants in spin class. I think they are crazy….
What do you wear to the gym? Are these long sleeves/pants wearing gym-goers crazy, or I am just heat sensitive?
On to the food. Yesterday was Dad’s birthday, and my sister and I cooked a delicious dinner!
We used two recipes from FoodandWine.com.
1. Grilled Green Bean Salad with Lentil Vinaigrette. This was so tasty and full of some of my favorite veggies, but it was a lot of work! Definitely a special occasion dish.
2. Sole with Lemon Cream. Except we used tilapia. The sauce was wonderful! It was rich and creamy, but it didn’t seem too heavy when paired with the fish. This dish was also much less work to prepare than the salad.
And of course there was cake. Ice cream cake actually. But not like you think…
Yes, this may look like your ordinary chocolate cake with powdered sugar (Dad is not an icing fan), but it contains a pint of ice cream in it! The recipe is actually called “Chocolate Ice Cream Cake (but not like you think).” Click link for recipe.
How do you like your cake? With icing or without? Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry…? Cold or hot?
My ideal cake is a flourless chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache frosting served cold with coffee ice cream…mmmm now I’m hungry .
