This blog is going to be completely different from any other one I have written thus far. The past two weeks have been pretty hectic for me and I had to work most of the weekend. Frankly, my brain is in neutral right now and I’m hoping that it stays that way for a while. Therefore, you are going to get a “raw” blog...no premeditation or forethought just me typing whatever comes into my AB brain. Hopefully, I will stay on topic (BTD).
Happily, since I’m all caught up with work now, I am looking at the next two days off!!! I am getting kinda bored with what I have been eating lately so I’m going to be figuring out how to fix that...plus my veggies portions have been slipping, again...I wonder why that is? I really do like my veggies and I do know they make me feel much more energetic. If I come up with any new recipes that I think are worth sharing, I promise I will.
This weekend was a rarity: we went out to a restaurant for a meal. I stayed as compliant as possible. I came across two dishes that I had never had before. I liked them so well that I want to try to duplicate them as close as possible and make them 100% compliant. One was an herb-y creamy pesto-ish salad dressing/dip/spread stuff and the other was a broccoli side. I also tried a pinot grigio that I’d never had before and met a new pinot noir...both were nice.
Today, I hope to raze the basil that is growing in my kitchen window. It’s going into the salad dressing experiment and then I am going to replant with fresh seed. I also need to get to deciding what I’m going to be planting this year. The strawberry plants seem to be wintering over just fine. I mostly need to decide which herbs I am going to be planting soon.
In addition to the experimental food, I am also going to be listening to some neglected CD’s, catching up on some reading, enjoying some green tea, and burning my new skinny pillar candle: chocolate covered strawberries scent! It’s chocolate brown on the top half and strawberry colored on the bottom half. If you are needing a new way to reduce stress I highly recommend candles. I use ‘em both at home and at work.
If I have time, I would also like to start playing around some with designing another menu. Specifically: a menu for the BTD’ers dream: a restaurant that is compliant, genuinely feasible (read practical), and affordable both to the owners and the clientele...if it’s ever really going to really happen here in the USA we’ve gotta at least have something to go to the bank with to show them. Workable menus and business plans do not just fall out of the sky.
I guess I had better close this blog because I do realize that I have done enough rampant random blathering on about nothing really and I do not intend to give you a bad case of readers remorse (aka Why did I bother to read that?). I hope you all have a nice week ahead of you.
