My crossfit box is the best! Every spring we have a crawfish boil at the box and we all stand around, drink beer, play baggo, and eat about 150lbs of crawfish.
I think that it’s a little bit tricky to get past the ickyness of ripping off their tails and extracting the meat, but they’re pretty dang tasty. The fact that they are a crustacean makes me a little nervous to eat them because of my shellfish allergy tendencies, but I kinda think the main thing I am allergic to is the iodine. Allison suggested that, and I think she might be right. But I am still careful not to mix shellfish consumption with intense cardio. Luckily this boil was on a rest day 🙂
I’m pretty terrible at baggo, though (aka bean bag toss, aka cornhole…)
I’m dog-sitting right now, which is bittersweet. They are a lot of work because Breanie is a million years old and won’t eat. The other two are just fur nuggets. Kooda likes to wake me up by sitting on my and licking my eyes and ears and peanut enjoys barking yippity-style in the wee hours of the morning. I’m sure I would probably enjoy that too if I didn’t have any responsibilities in my life, so I can’t fault him too much.
Guess what I managed to do?! I broke my vitamix!!! I was making these plantain biscuits from PaleOMG, and when I tried to mix up the dry ingredients… I guess it was too sticky? I don’t know. I was under the impression that vitamix blenders could handle that….
It was starting to walk across the countertop though… I’m going to look into having it replaced or repaired soon. Because that is straight up depressing! I really love that thing for cooking. But maybe I should have gone with a blendtec blender instead. I was very torn between the two.
Here’s last night’s dinner.
I am starting a whole30
on Wednesday uhh, TOMORROW. With Taylor because she is trying to get awesome for Mexico. And I just wanna get awesome for the sake of being awesome, since my summer plans don’t really include the beach or anything. Just a lil’ trip to Chicago for regionals and a bunch of time at the lake. I can’t complain 🙂
P.S. BTW, Not single anymore. I guess that’s what happens when you break up with someone and then they’re at the same crawfish boil as you and you weren’t sure what you wanted in the first place, so you give it another shot. I used to totally roll my eyes at those people, but now I am one of them. I mean, it would be different if we manipulated, cheated on, lied to, or used eachother. But that’s not the case. It can end one of two ways: Way 1–I figure out with absolute certainty that this cannot ever work. Way 2–I figure out with absolute certainty that it can. Either way, it’s worth it.
