Cooking With Amy Poehler (Okay, I’m Lying)

I’ve made a series of excellent life choices today and they either pertain to food or Amy Poehler.

Let’s start with food.

Breakfast was one egg scrambled and cheesed, with peanut butter toast and fruit. Remember those strawberries I thought I lost? They were as sweet as ever.

Lunch was a delicious sandwich with carrots and hummus on the side, which I didn’t photograph.

For dinner, I made my first meatballs!

These bad hombres include ground beef, mozzarella, red pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning.

And the final touches to a delicious meal.

Along with a glass of wine and Ron Swanson time.

(I mean, is this a perfectly timed picture- yes, I think so).

Also a perfect segue way into my other excellent choices inspired by Amy Poehler. I’ve restarted watching Parks and Recreation because, excellent show.

Such a concept was inspired by my decision to listen to Amy Poehler’s audiobook of her book, Yes Please. I read the amazing memoir when it first came out, but it has been a great addition to my daily commute, both to make me feel happy and inspired in the morning and get a solid laugh in the evening. Listening to her speak her written words hits me in a positive way, both as a woman and a young professional seeking a career in writing, comedy, and television.

I want to be Amy Poehler when I grow up- she is one nasty woman!

At the gym, I knocked out some chest, back, and core exercises before spinning it out for a dose of cardio. My dinner was earned.

It’s Friday, friends! Let those feel-good Friday vibes wash over.
