Tasty, Pain-Free, and Warm

Brussels SproutsIt was a chilly-but-sunny Saturday here in Washington, DC  – the perfect time to look back at three beautiful things from the past week.

1. I cooked Brussels sprouts for the first time ever on Tuesday night. I used this recipe (which I found via Twitter and immediately saved to Pinterest – yay, social web!) and they were delicious. So good, in fact, that I can’t wait to make them again.

2. Because I had FSA money to burn at the end of 2011, I finally agreed to get the night guard my dentist has been advocating for years. (According to him, it’s apparent that I grind my teeth horribly while asleep.) I was skeptical that it would do anything, but I realized yesterday that I haven’t woken up with a headache since I got it. Given that I normally awake with one a couple of times a week, this a wonderful, unexpected outcome.

3. I found fleece-lined yoga pants to wear for my skating lessons, so now I will have appropriately flexible pants  that are also warm.

What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

    Our ATA instructor has been trying to get us to make this since Thanksgiving. Same as you and me, had never had them before, and LOVED this (has made them 1x / wk ever since). I guess with your endorsement, I’ll have to try it! let you know…
