Supper: Ground Pork ‘Hot Plate’
I wore a sleeveless shirt to the gym today. To celebrate Girls month Crossfit Moncton had some sweet ‘Lift Like a Girl’ Pink tank tops ordered. I couldn’t wait to get it, but it wasn’t until the month was over that they arrived. Regardless- I. Wore. It. In. Public. Well to the gym which I suppose is still in public. One of my biggest insecurities is of my arms, so to wear it on a day where we were doing Overhead Squats is really a huge step for me. I’m sure no one cares or gave it a second thought, but let me tell you I was extremely self concious for the entire hour I was there. But I lived and my day was fine and no one made fun of me (publicly), so there! Take that insecurities!
So the gym- I got a PR, I did the hardest workout I’ve ever done, it was good.
Supper is a ‘Hot Plate’ combination inspired from Well Fed. I love the idea behind Hot Plates which is basically just a protein with veggies and add some spices. The book has 10 Ethnic varieties with a few different combinations each. I based mine on a Chinese hot plate by using ‘Best Stir Fry Sauce Ever’ recipe with ground pork, broccoli and a sweet Orange Pepper. It was a little too spicy for my dear husband but I thought it was perfect! These are a really great way to use up your left over vegetable and frozen meat! I will definitely be using these more in the future!
Also on an exciting note, I discovered The Clothes Make The Girl has a Facebook page and I went on gushing about how much I love her cookbooks and read on:
