Cindy or Mary

Manny and Jackie are siblings, can you tell? 

5 Pull-Ups
10 Push-Ups
15 Squats


5 Handstand push-ups
10 1-legged squats, alternating legs
15 Pull-ups

This will be a good day for people to practice the pistol and the HSPU, especially if they are going to do Cindy.   I hope you have been working on your kipping pull-up.  It would be a shame to do this with bands if you know you could do it with a kipping pull-up and get a far greater metabolic hit from it.

We have a bunch of pork that we got from a ranch where the pigs are pastured outside.  It is some very fabulous pork and I have been eating it every which way.  However, my favorite version is just to sprinkle it with salt and pepper and broil it gently for a bit on each side.  Here it is with some mashed sweet potatoes I made with coconut milk and some bacon fat.  Why are they green?  Well, the flesh was white when I cut them open and they just turned green right away!  My kids had to eat them with their eyes closed, but they tasted pretty good. 

My husband made some sausage from a pork shoulder.  He used Hungarian spicing, which means way more garlic than you wanted to smell on me and a ton of paprika.  They were great with some homemade purple sauerkraut which has been stored since the cabbages were ready in the garden.

These meals are not fancy, nor do they take long to prepare, but they have good quality meat and some vegetables and satisfy a family.   (OK, the sausage itself took many hours to make, but it's like a hobby for David and keeps him out of trouble!  You can find decent quality sausage in many places, even Walmart.)
