Today I made broccoli one of my favorite ways, that I haven't had in a long time:

Sesame broccoli with whole cumin

1 tall-sided stainless steel or cast iron, heavy bottomed cooking vessel. (THIS IS IMPORTANT.)

Broccoli (~1 lb?)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp olive oil
1/4tsp toasted sesame oil
Pinch salt
1/4 c water

Fry the cumin in the olive oil until fragrant. Sprinkle in a pinch of salt. Add the broccoli and stir until the oil is absorbed into the florets. Then stir until it becomes a rich, verdant green. Drizzle in the toasted sesame oil, and keep stirring until the florets begin to brown/scorch around the edges.

Finally, pour your water into the center of the pan, to steam-finish the broccoli. Stir (carefully!) until the water has all evaporated.

I now have lunches for the week, and have been doing the thing where I'm actually eating around ~5 times a day? I mean, granted, last Monday's cilantro lime rice dishes didn't get done until this afternoon but ... stuff happens, right? (Also the potato express is the best thing EVER. Seriously. Buttery thyme potatoes for my lunch in 5 minutes total.)

Ankle is still swollen, but marginally less sore. I'm calling it a win? Still going into the Dr's on Tuesday.

Lower back pain, in the muscle directly over by butt, right side. Presumably from almost but not quite slipping on ice 4+ times this weekend.

Feels tight and inflamed -- raised compared to the muscle group on the other side.

Any idea what I can do about this? Have applied hot, cold, meds (ibuprofin, robaxin).

Am continuing to try to gently stretch &c.
