I will be the first to admit that when it comes to being coordinated I kind of lack that “je ne sais quoi”, for some reason or another walking always tends to be a bit of challenge. I’ve actually lost track of the amount of times I’ve “bit it” in my lifetime, and most of these instances I was just walking in a straight line, I impress even myself sometimes.
When I was a server a million years ago I’m pretty sure I would have a yard sale in the middle of the restaurant on a weekly basis. Once I even fell in front of an entire men’s hockey team having lunch, and not just once, but twice!!!! On their bill next to my tip they wrote; “We think you need new shoes, or possibly feet”, apparently these guys were athletes AND comedians.
But there’s nothing quite like falling in-front of a stranger to give the ol’ ego a boost, because the moment it happens all you want is for everyone to look away. You know… pretend it never happened, even step right over me if necessary. Like the time best friend Trish and I decided to take her two dogs for a walk, and while we were out also grabbed some take out for dinner. So we each had a dog but I also had the large paper bag of food. We were about 10 minutes away from her place and of course doesn’t it start to rain, and it’s the kind of rain that makes you feel like you’re being assaulted by mother nature. So, what do I do? Pick up the pace of course and start a nice light jog, bet you can’t guess what happened next?!? Full blown altercation with king street and king street won.
Not only did our takeout bag of food go flying through the air, but so did the leash, dog went ape shit, and I’m face first on one of the busiest streets in Toronto (don’t worry my knees broke my fall) with a group of strangers shouting: “ARE YOU OK?”
Ya I’m great thanks, my ego is just shattered and now I’m also deaf.
But I feel like what I lack in coordination I make up for in the kitchen. Because how unfair would that be if I was super coordinated AND a good cook.
2-3 large handfuls of chopped kale
8-10 Brussel sprouts finely chopped
¼ pound of organic ground pork (you could also use turkey if you avoid the pig)
1 tbsp of avocado oil
salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet over medium heat toss in your ground pork and get that going. Once it’s been cooking for about a minute or two, toss in your kale, brussels, and oil then cover over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes, tossing occasionally.
You’ll know it’s close to done when your kale turns bright green and the Brussel sprouts are fork tender. At this point toss in your egg, salt and pepper and just continue to stir until the egg is fully cooked.
Like I said… super uncoordinated but killin’ it in the kitchen.
