Crabby? Not Me!

What’s with this cold front?? Yesterday I was using the AC and today I have the heat on! Brrr! I was planning on a run in the morning tomorrow but since it’s going to be 27 degrees I think I’ll pass…I’ve gotten unused to the cold so fast!

I opted for sleeping in this morning and working out after work. I ran about 1/4 of a mile to the apartment gym,  did 40 minutes on the ET, did some PT exercises (aka TONS of lunges!) and ran home. It was an awesome sweat session! I did my lunges + other PT exercises next to the indoor pool so I was sure to keep my muscle nice and warmed up in the sauna-like room. After my workout, I did some foam rolling and started making dinner which came together in about 15 minutes! I love that!

On the menu? Crab cakes, steamed broccoli and couscous.

 To the couscous I added some peas, a chopped up plum tomato and the juice from half a lemon. I would have zested the lemon too if we had a zester! Still building my kitchen arsenal 😉

Steamed broccoli:

For the crab cakes:

  • 1 can white crab
  • one egg
  • 1/3 c. oatmeal
  • liquid smoke
  • old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 of a lemon’s juice

Mix all together and fry up in a hot pan with 1 tsp of olive oil in it.

This was so light and refreshing. I liked the crab cakes but I think it would be better with a can of pink crab rather then white. We have a can of pink crab in the cupboard too so I will be trying that soon! I always like adding liquid smoke to the fish cakes that we make. It reminds me of the smoked fish dip that we would get on St. Pete Beach.

Well James it out on the town tonight since he has the next 2 days off from work so it’s just me and Toby! But look what I found when I was looking in our room to get into bed….

BUSTED! Such a bed hog! And of course he lays across all the pillows! But seriously…how can I ask that face to move?? I think I can find a corner of a pillow someplace….

Night!
