OK. Not that exciting but I did learn that my neighbor's perfect sugar cookies are a surprisingly filling treat. Exactly what you wanted to know I'm sure.
Other things you wanted to know ...
Beth, a super cool, super harcore triathlete, asked me what a plank jack is.
Well, it's a medieval form of torture where you assume the plank position and then jump your legs out the way you would for an upright jumping jack.
OK. It's really not torture. I think it requires more coordination than anything and for the exerciser to not be wearing Vibrams. (My little toes kept getting "caught" on the floor.) During my boot camp class, the instructor had us do three plank jacks then complete a burpee. Now those are torture.
Katie asked me how to carve a whole chicken after reading about my slow cooker chicken.
While I'm no expert in the kitchen, I can haphazardly butcher a chicken. Start with a sharp knife and cut down the breast bone. Flip the chicken over and cut down the back bone, separating the chicken into two parts - each with a breast, wing, thigh and leg. Once you have the two parts, you can see a line to separate the breast from the thigh; cut there.
Of course, you could do it the right way.
If this is all a bit funky, feel free to just pull the meat from the bone and say "Fig it, carving." You can use pulled/shredded chicken in any number of dishes, such as Buffalo Chicken Tacos, Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches, Chicken Caesar Sandwiches or on a simple salad.
Kimberly asked me why her nearly 6-month-old has decided to begin napping in the morning now that her teacher husband is on break and available to baby wrangle. Her dreams of casually styling her hair while he held a screaming baby have been dashed.
"Now he'll never believe me when I exclaim that I don't have time to do things in the morning because the baby won't let me put him down!" she lamented.
Oh. Wait. That's me. Dangit!
At least he's cute - it saves him every time.
How is your Friday shaping up?
