It’s A Learn Something New Kind of Weekend

13 May
So I try to learn something new as often as I can. This weekend, I have three things in mind:I love to try interesting recipes and this one just sounds yummy with a capital “Y”. Thanks Girly Girl Army for listing it in this week’s newsletter

Spinach Strawberry Salad
Yield 8 Servings                                                                                               

Ingredients
•    1/2 Cup Olive Oil
•    1/3 Cup Cashews
•    1/4 Cup Warm Water                                                                                 
•    3 Tablespoons Agave
•    1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
•    2 Teaspoons White Vinegar
•    3/4 Teaspoon Soy Sauce
•    2 Cloves Garlic
•    2 (6 Ounce) Packages Baby Spinach Leaves
•    1/2 Cup Chopped Cashews
•    1 Cup Sliced Strawberries
•    1/2 Cup Sliced Fresh Mushrooms (Optional)
Directions: Blend The Olive Oil, 1/3 Cup Cashews, Warm Water, Agave, Lemon Juice, White Vinegar, Soy Sauce, And Garlic In A Blender Until Smooth And Creamy; Chill In Refrigerator For 1 Hour.  Toss The Spinach, 1/2 Cup Chopped Cashews, Strawberries, And Mushrooms In A Large Bowl Until Mixed; Drizzle Chilled Dressing Over The Salad And Toss Lightly.                         

I also want to figure out how to use my weighted hula hoop. Apparently there is something called Hoop Dancing. Since I belly dance, I figure I can handle these moves. It looks super cool, but I am wondering if the waterfall and shaggy leg warmers are required? Hmmm. 

And then after I have eaten my salad, and hooped danced myself to a sexy new figure, I think I’ll kick back and paint my nails. If I can pull off this newspaper technique, I think it will look wicked cool! Thanks BUST Magazine for the instructions.

Have a fabulous girly weekend!
