Viva L'Italia!

Today I have been really exhausted. I told the three younger kids we were all going to nap while Isaac was at his afternoon class. We all snuggled up in the bed, but I was the only one who slept! Obviously I must have needed it!

Today was a rest day from running. Ryan has tomorrow off, so I should be able to get outside to run! And the weather is supposed to be great, so that's even better. I did some Pilates, Yoga and stretching and that is about it in terms of working out.

I was so worried when I started this vegetarian thing that I wouldn't know what to eat for lunch. That hasn't been a problem at all. We have leftovers coming out of our ears!! It's quite nice, I have to say. That was never the case when we were eating meat--it was so pricey I just bought enough for one meal, no more.

One thing I have decided--I need to start re-naming things. Tonight we had the most fabulous risotto. Really, it tasted like something you would get at a NICE Italian restaurant--IN ITALY.
(Have I ever mentioned how much I would love to go to Italy?? Especially on days like today...)

Yet my kids hear the word "risotto" and FREAK OUT. Next time I serve it we will call it "Cheese Pizza Rice." I'll post the incredible recipe next!!
