Long days of meetings and treacherous stairs have led me to trying new dairy products made by the neighbours.
There is a fine line between not defrosted enough and over defrosted, when it comes to making pseudo-palmiers using frozen dough. I rarely achieve the right balance.
Big birds for eating and dinosaurs for hatching!
The problem with birthdays when you get older is that you have to recalculate every time how old you are when someone asks you.
I went back home through Nagoya where we had about an hour of delay, but hey, at least the plane was mostly empty!
After a morning of walking around I went back to that burrito place I liked last time – still as good (and with very reasonably sized servings, no nap needed afterwards). I also picked up some Halloween KitKats, and I actually now forget what they contained, sweet potato I believe.
(again, this is only second post written and scheduled with the new WP editor and it is still very much a mess)
I ended up sharing a table with two women who were both from the Chicago area and it came out that one was a substitute teacher in the school system the other’s kids attended. Small world. They even arrived on the same day but with different airlines.
As someone who routinely burns her mouth by drinking hot tea (I got a new thermal mug and it keeps stuff super hot for hours and I keep on forgetting that and go in for a drink… and it hurts), this was not really my cup of tea. I’m sure there are plenty of health benefits and you get time to relax and meditate and all that but it doesn’t bring you that, “ahhhh” joy like a nice hot cup of tea does!
It was the first day when I really felt the cold – so I had cake.
I came back and was full of promises to myself – I’ll be cooking more, etc. That lasted about three hours.
All good freezers are full of berries.
Apparently a politician does not believe that offering a vegetarian day a week at the army barracks is good… because for him those types of meals don’t contain enough proteins and carbohydrates. And he chose spinach soup and eggs as his example of meals on which an army cannot survive. Right. I couldn’t even finish that bowl of spinach soup because it was so rich! Kept me full way longer than any meat could!
I lasted almost two weeks of preparing and bringing my own snacks to work.
