Yesterday marked the 2017 eclipse event. Indeed, the buzz around eclipse glasses has been ample. Nevertheless, experiencing the event was remarkable. As the eclipse unfolded, I found myself on our balcony, taking it all in. In Charlotte, where we reside, the eclipse covered about 98% of the sun. My husband expressed disappointment over the lack of total darkness, a sentiment I shared. Yet, it was quite enjoyable to witness all our neighbors emerging outdoors, equipped with their glasses.

Yesterday was also an awesome day because I started practicing yoga again. There is this amazing website called, Do Yoga With Me. Their videos are free! I’m starting back up with the beginner videos and after two days I’ve already noticed a difference. Here is a link to the yoga class I took today on Hips, Hamstrings and Lower Back.

Another fantastic experience yesterday involves food. I returned to an old recipe and tried a new recipe. Both were devoured so quickly I could only snap a photo with my iPhone. Here they are:

The Sweet and Spicy Chicken was an old recipe that I hadn’t quite mastered yet. While I did set off the smoke detector this time, due to a lack of trimming the parchment paper, the tenders came out juicy and crispy.

The coleslaw was new for me. I have never enjoyed coleslaw and have always felt it was too slimy. While browsing Earth Fare’s produce department, I came across a package of shredded vegetables designed for coleslaw. The vegetable mixture contained broccoli, carrots and cabbage. My intent was to make a dairy free coleslaw for my husband. However, I tried it and LOVED it!
