So after casting about for a long time I’ve evolved a morning ritual that works quite well for me: get up, feed the critters, do joint-mobilization exercises, then sit down to enjoy my breakfast of coffee and sugar-free red chile cream-cheese fudge while watching anime.
No, it certainly does not suck to be me. [...]
So it’s been a bit of a rough ride. Sorry to’ve slipped out of touch.
High. On, yes, a new thing.
The little health embarrassment – that minor unable to breathe thing, you know – has cleared up muchly thanks to, well, drugs. Plus clean living, I suppose, but its not as if that’s all [...]
So I just got back from giving a field test to the waterproofing of my jaunty new hat.
My suave new hat.
It was another fairly warm day here in the Duke City – we’ve had several in a row. I had various errands to run, including shopping for supplies to do some serious cooking this [...]
So, low-starch/sugar birthday cake successfully made and frosted, and the first piece consumed!
With coffee and, eventually, French Vanilla ice cream, thank you very much.
As I mentioned yesterday on Facebook (took me some serious scrolling to find the original post, what with the way my Wall has been slammed by birthday greetings. For which, well – [...]
Wish me luck, kids. I am so going for it!
With my birthday coming up Wednesday I’ve decided to try to making this recipe for sour-cream chocolate cake, except substituting flaxseed meal for flour and Splenda for sugar. We’re talking seriously low starch, low sugar.
I was inspired by this flaxseed “foccacia” bread, which is very breadlike [...]
Yes, toast. Just now – for the first time in well over a year – I enjoyed a piece of toast. Warm, buttery, tasty toast.
And you know what’s really cool? I did not break my low starch/low sugar eating habit.
I didn’t even bend it. This toast is dead-center for la Vida Low-Starch which I am [...]
Nothin’ left in the tank today, that is.
This need probably not surprise us, given my Big Writing Binge of recent history. Notwithstanding that I took all of yesterday off, doing even more nothing than I intended.
I’ve spent much of the last 14-15 months learning how to push my limits without seriously overstepping them. Seem to [...]
No, seriously. How does anyone eat a whole raw carrot? It takes me an hour to chew my way through half a carrot. At the end of which my face needs a nap.
It also just took 10 minutes for the “Add New Post” page to load.
That’s it. I’m going DSL. Tomorrow it’s off to Southwest [...]
I can’t promise this will bring back seriously freezer burned bratwurst; these were freezer-burned, but I don’t know how badly. How do you measure that, anyway?
At any rate, I defrosted them. Chopped up a quarter-onion or so and plopped it in water in a pot – enough to cover the brats, so there aren’t [...]
