I like stretching after exercise, and I really like the triangle pose for the way it stretches my whole body. I was a little overzealous last night though, and stretched my left side a bit too far. I felt it when it happened. I thought “Oh boy, that’s going to hurt tomorrow”. Then when I woke up with some minor pain this morning I knew it was going to hurt much more later in the day. And it does. So I type to you from my couch, heating pad wrapped around my mid-section and laptop in my lap.
For this reason, I was pretty happy that the dinner I had planned was super-quick and easy. Split pea soup and a roll from the freezer, and the aforementioned squash pickles.
The squash pickles look pretty much exactly like they did yesterday, but they taste much different.
I’ll call this experiment a 75% success. They’re definitely edible, in fact they taste good, but I think they can be better. I’m going to try again soon with the additions of pre-salting & draining the squashes, and garlic and some sort of spice or herb in the liquid. Then I think we’ll have hit the squash jackpot.
