So I was going to blog these amazing Spicy Cumin Lamb Sliders for your eating and viewing pleasure this week but then I messed up my knee in yoga class. Because exercise is actually bad for you and should be avoided at all costs.
OK, that last sentence is not actually true and I probably just have dodgy knees. I’m just a little peeved that my continuing love affair with yoga is on hold until the partial tear in my medial collateral ligament repairs itself. If you could see the amazing definition in my upper arms from a mere three weeks of downward dogging, planking and warrior posing, or how much nicer I have been lately, you’d understand why I am hoping for a speedy recovery.
So instead of cooking, styling and shooting recipes for clients and this blog, the last two days have been spent resting, icing and elevating my knee, and hobbling around to various medical appointments. Yay. Not.
While there’s no good time to have an accident this week is important because today I have a media trip I don’t want to miss: the Sydney to Brisbane leg of the the Queen Mary 2 worldwide voyage. My oldest friend in the world, G, is my plus one and the two of us have already agreed that we are going to have an awesome time exploring the cruise ship and sampling all of the dining and bar options. The phrase, “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” may have been solemnly intoned once or twice. Hey, I’m just kidding, loved ones!
Luckily, my knee injury is manageable. It is a bit sore but as long as I wear my unsexy blue knee brace with flat shoes and take it easy, I’ll be fine. I’m a little disappointed that I won’t be able to wear heels with my black fishtail dress to the Black and White Ball on our final cruise night but really, that’s a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things, right?
So I’m sorry I don’t have a new recipe post for you this week. But I’m going to be taking it a bit easy activity-wise over the next few weeks so I’ll make it up to you with some extra recipe and travel posts then, OK?
