Regarding my Shiritaki experimentation:
Initially, I was just stir frying or sauteé-ing the veggies and meat mix and putting in the noodles after rinsing them in hot water. The had only texture and no flavor. I chopped up too much for my breakfast eggs yesterday morning, so I put it in a bowl, added the liquid and the noodles and set it in the fridge until dinner. Oh yea it came out great. I think the ginger did the trick for me. So last night, I put some in a ziploc with a half cup of low sodium broth, soy sauce, teaspoon of ginger and Mrs. Dash Onion and Herb no salt. Actually in retrospect a 1/4 tsp of ginger suffices. It was a bit ultra spicy.
The grand babies wanted in on the Pilates this morning. My little chubby 4 and a half year old grand daughter is fierce on it.When I told her I had to do my Pilates, she ran to get the water bottles for the arm exercises. I just let her play along. Don't be thinking that I am the grandma exercise enforcer on a little girlie. She is just having fun. It is great to have company. I played a game with my 6 yr old grandson with the bottles. I asked him to hold them out and see how long he can hold them out like that. He was surprised that after a bit he could feel it being heavy! I am so happy that the exercise is fun time. I kept at it for more repetitions. The video I am watching is condensed version of beginning Pilates. I just pause it at each position and repeat 10 to 15 times. I couldn't do the whole 100's move I went to 80 with a pause at 45. It is sort of half-assed, but I am doing them and feeling great,
I am extending our walk and then going to where the horsies graze with a couple of apples. The kids will think they are for snacking and then when we get there, they will be surprised that the horsies like em. I hope.
