Man oh man was I lucky enough to have yesterday off of work. I say lucky because the weather was CUH-razy beautiful. I know you’re probably tired of hearing me talk about the weather, but after the longest winter in history (ok – that may be stretching it) I just can’t help it!
I have to work this coming weekend, so I chose to take Tuesday off since we went to see Aziz Ansari perform Monday night.
Yes. He was HILARIOUS! I literally laughed so much that by the end I started to lose my voice.
I woke up yesterday morning ready to tackle my day and was pleasantly surprised as I was driving to my 20th Pure Barre class to hear the weather forecast. High of 75!
So even though Pure Barre was tough, (!!!!!) I decided to tack on an additional workout to enjoy the weather. Plus I had the time in my day!
I started with a run outside near one of my local YMCAs.
It was beautiful. Parts of the trail are actually VERY sunny and it felt sort of amazing to soak up all that Vitamin D.
After my run I did a quick arms circuit inside the Y, and was so excited when I realized that I had ALL the weights to myself!
Only one other guy in the entire gym! Which, by the way, he was running on the treadmill – did he not see the beautiful day outside?! Or maybe he likes to watch TV while running, but I definitely prefer running outside.
After the gym I headed to the grocery store and to Target for necessities and then back home to get started on laundry.
I used Cabot Monterey Jack in the recipe this time and that was a GREAT idea! It really took the crust to the next level.
I made the above cheese pizza without sauce. I cut the crust into dippers and we dipped the cheesy pizza into pizza sauce. That way the sauce didn’t weigh down the crust.
I made the Veggie Pizza with Red Pepper, Onion, and Mushroom. Since I put the sauce on, it made the crust a bit soggy, so we had to eat it with a fork. Next time I think I will just leave the sauce as a dipper on the side. It made the cheesy crust so much crispier than the veggie one.
But even with a fork, the veggie pizza was delicious! It’s crazy to think that that crust is simply cauliflower, egg, cheese, and seasoning because it’s so stinkin’ good!
