Yoga Night

Wednesday nights are yoga nights in the Faux Foodie Casa. One thing I have thoroughly enjoyed throughout the pregnancy is my pre-natal yoga class. It’s been educational, calming and truly an activity I look forward to. But lately I have been having a hard time going since I am always so tired. But once I get there and get a good stretch, I am glad I got off the couch and made it to class. Especially after attending the child birth class, I see that so many of the moves that we practice is something I will use in labor. So to say the least, I am getting good preparation as to what needs to be done once the real contractions come. So far, I seem to be experiencing a lot of Braxton-Hicks contractions and they are getting a lot more regular and stronger. Mili-mali is telling me she is getting ready. Well Mili-Mali, we are too :)As soon as I walked out of the class, I texted the chef to let him know I am on my way home and he texted back “I am cooking”…wow, 4th night in the row and we are eating exactly what’s planned on the Weekly Menu. Wow, I am completely amazed. On tonight’s menu we had chicken and broccoli slaw salad. Originally we planned grilled chicken, but the grill is out of gas so the chef made my favorite – breaded chicken. It was really good tonight – extra salty, just the way I like it these days. I think because it was seasoned with Vegeta – a Croatian condiment which is a mixture of spices and various vegetables. We were visiting our friends L &D this past weekend, and they served broccoli slaw salad at their picnic. I knew I had to have the recipe. It’s really a great summer salad. I love the crunchiness of the ramen noodles, sunflower seeds and almonds, and the sweetness of the dressing is a perfect contrast to the salty breaded chicken. Thank you for the recipe L – it was really delicious.Ingredients:1/2 cup sunflower seeds1/2 cup slivered almonds1 bag of broccoli slawBeef ramen noodles–Dressing Ingredients1/4 cup vinegar1/2 cup olive oil3 tbsp sugarramen noodle packetInstructions:Mix all the dressing ingredients together and let it sit over night. Mix all the ingredients and the dressing together and voila!!!We are participating in a Cupcake Wars competition this weekend. Since I am the baker in the family (God help us!!!) I need to consult my three cupcake cookbooks and see what we will enter into the contest. I only have 2 days to practice, too. Oh my this should be interesting!!!! Wish me/us good luck – we will need it, that’s for sure.
