This outfit was all about texture. It kept me warm except when the cold wind hit me. I probably should be better about wearing base layers under knits, for wind and sweat protection. I had this exact thought the other day and then, as if the internet was reading my mind, I was shown an ad for the NUMI under shirt. Have any of you guys tried it? I’m intrigued but $59 is pretty steep for what it is.
Anyone else listen to the M.M. Lafleur How We Built This podcast? I’ve never owned anything from that brand but after listening to that episode, I’m curious to see if their professional women’s clothing lives up to the claims. A lot of their styles are more conservative than what is required at my workplace, but I do like their tapered trousers. If you’ve tried M.M. Lafleur before, what are your thoughts? Yay or nay?
I’ve been doing a bit of research on Lion’s Mane mushrooms lately. Aside from its potential neuroprotective properties, I’ve heard they taste like crab meat. Strangely, the day I decided to go to the farmer’s market to look for them with little hopes of actually finding them, a brand new mushroom vendor had set up shop selling lion’s mane and 6 other rotating varieties of exotic edible mushrooms!
My mind nearly exploded. I’m so lucky to have access to these beautiful mushrooms! I decided to pan sear them in an herb/garlic/earth balance (vegan butter) mixture. They were delicious! I definitely want to keep experimenting with lion’s mane recipes. I’m thinking of adding them to Japanese shabu shabu next time with a scallion sesame dipping sauce. yum!!
