I know, I know. You guys have probably made baba ghanoush a million times and I’m the ONLY one sitting over here in my corner being a fussy-pants about roasting an eggplant. I honestly don’t know that I’ve touched an eggplant before this, which is ridiculous considering how much I love Mediterranean food. And roasting things always leaves tons of caramelized goodness stuck to the baking sheet to try and scrub off. But hey, isn’t working with PAM Cooking Spray the perfect time to give that a try?

My Life Story Group has met three times now and every time has been SO lovely — full of honesty, vulnerability, laughter, tears, love, and food. I told my life story at the first meeting (yikes) and since then Katie and Sandi have also both shared. What a group of amazing women, seriously. I love our casual get-togethers where, in addition to baring our souls, we play with each other’s pets, share Spanish language trivia (Sandi is Colombian and Katie spent a lot of time in Guatemala. And I’m a … good listener?), and EAT.

How’s your fitness going lately?
After illness, a battle with my menstrual cup (I’ll spare you details), and some other issues, I’ve had three weeks now where I’ve only exercised once per week in a hot yoga class. In some ways it was a good break — my knees were a wreck and it gave them a chance to rest. But it also got me out of my morning workout habit. I don’t know why, but whenever I take a break, I get anxious about starting up my workouts again! It’s like I think I won’t be able to do it after taking some time off. This morning, though, I finally got myself to the gym to lift weights for the first time in three weeks.
