Hi friends! I’m popping in to share some Friday Faves today. We got back from Korea late last week, so I’ll be sharing another Korea post later on (probably next week). I’m starting to get better at recovering from jet lag both ways, thank goodness!
This salmon dish. It’s the Vietnamese caramel salmon dish on the NYTimes site and from Melissa Clark’s Dinner in an Instant cookbook. I’m not a big fan of salmon normally, but we’ve made this salmon three times already and I’ve devoured it each time.
Regular chiropractor visits – I’ve never been to the chiro before, but my coworker suggested it might help with the sciatic pain I’ve been dealing with for the last year. There’s a Joint Chiropractic near me, which offers 4 visits a month for ~$80, so I’ve been going regularly and while it hasn’t helped my sciatic pain yet, my neck and spine have highly improved range of motion (I had no idea how stiff my neck was before…)
My new gym bag. I got tired of lugging around separate bags for the gym, work, and lunch, so I bought the Lululemon Go Getter Tote, which holds a change of clothes, shoes, makeup bag, my lunch bag, a laptop, my coffee mug and water bottle with room to spare. It also held all my essentials on the long flight to and from Korea!
Outdoor running – the weather is finally starting to get a little warmer in DC, so I went for my first outdoor run today – in shorts and a tank, no less! Each year when I transition from the treadmill to the outdoors, I’m reminded why I love this sport so much. I don’t hate treadmill running, but it can’t compare to running outside on a perfect day.
Orange is the New Black (season 5) – I wasn’t feeling well this week, so I ended up staying home one day and binge-watching the latest season. Seriously one of my favorite shows on Netflix – they explore difficult issues with a great blend of humor and gravity.
