Getting around Injinji!

August 27, 2010

Don’t get me wrong.  I *love* my Injinji socks.  I’ve just got a tight budget right now and can’t buy enough for every day of the week!  So how do I wear my Vibrams without buying a ton of special socks?  Simple.  I make toeless socks.

They’re like fingerless gloves…

…but they’re for your feet!

It’s simple!  Take a pair of socks that you want to wear with your Vibrams and put them on your feet! Read the rest of this entry »


Noodle-less Stroganoff-ish

August 11, 2010

This was a delightful dish that was super easy.

I started with two slices of grass-fed flap meat, cut into slices (about 0.75 lbs).  They went into a cast iron skillet and browned and cooked.  While they cooked, I sliced up four zucchinis into quartered slices.  Once the meat was browned and cooked, I added the zucchini.  With the cover on, the zucchini steam-cooked with the meat.  Once the zucchini was cooked (nice and soft), I added:

  • three (3) tablespoons of goat’s milk yogurt
  • two (2) tablespoons of gorgonzola cheese
  • one (1) table spoon of cooked spinach (leftovers)
  • salt and pepper

Then I mixed all that together with the “au jus” from the beef (and the beef and zucchini).  It turned into a lovely brown gravy-like sauce that tasted similar to stroganoff!

It was so yummy!  Ryan and I each had seconds.
