You can ski, too! How, you ask? With a little magic and the use of Youtube 🙂
First, let’s look at some fun ski and feed pictures, shall we?
Greek yogurt with banana, PB, and a wonderful muffin made by Peter’s mom.
Oatmeal with a spoonful of blueberry jam, PB, and a butterscotch scone corner on top:
I cut down on the amount of PB for this bowl so that I wouldn’t be stuffed for skiing. Rolling down the slopes might interfere with my skiing groove. Speaking of …
Peter hates this slope (Nabob) because it’s good for about 10 minutes first thing in the morning, before it gets all scraped off and icy.
Check out these crazy costumes:
I love my skis. You can’t see it in this picture, but the gold parts sparkle in the sun:
For those of you who don’t ski (or don’t ski often), here’s a taste of actual skiing (don’t worry, there was no one around me and I was skiing really slowly):
And from the front, skiing down Orion:
Skiing is a great cardiovascular workout. I can feel my heart pounding and my legs shaking at the end of long runs, but I don’t mind because skiing is so much fun! “Workout” doesn’t have to be a four-(plus three)-letter-word if you’re playing a sport or doing something you really enjoy, like walking on a beautiful bike path or throwing a Frisbee around (go Ultimate!).
Let’s see some food! I branched out from the huge salad at lunch to try this little gem:
Grilled salmon with cucumber ribbons on ciabatta with a side salad and carrot curls.
I didn’t want all that bread weighing me down, so I enjoyed the salmon on the top half of the crusty roll and left the bottom half (which was soggy anyway). I definitely felt better throughout the afternoon of skiing without the extra roll half weighing me down.
Dinner was at Mustang, where I ordered the grilled chicken with capers, asparagus, and gnocchi:
Dinner was … pretty good. While my dish was nicely spiced and the asparagus was succulent, Peter’s dish (Utah trout) was bland and mushy. I guess one out of two ain’t bad.
Today was our last day of skiing 🙁 . We’re arriving at home late tomorrow night. I can’t wait to see these little doggles:
See you guys on Sunday!
