END OF THREE DAY COUNT 3-4 books read, not bad considering how much time I spent writing and tweeting and blogging about it!
The last book I started was Maya Papaya by J.C. Andrijeski
6 AM AKST Been asleep for 1 hour but I promised an update, plus the first challenge was starting. Alarm went off, checked the challenge & went to answer. Promptly fell asleep ON my keyboard (seriously I brought it to bed with me so I wouldn’t miss the challenge) Before I had nodded off I had finished the first story in the Anthology.
10 AM AKST - Woke up to another alarm at 9:45 and managed to finish the 1st challenge with a minute to spare. Went on to read and work on this blog so I did not have to be so frazzled like I was yesterday. I also woke up to an e-mail saying that I had one a $150 GC from Amazon!! OMG I am SO excited.
I realize that a large portion of you are on self-induced diets. But not all of us are, and let’s face it there are moments in our life that need bacon. I have had the recipe for Sonoran Dogs from Cooking for Assholes sitting around since the summer of 2010. I just was beginning my bacon addiction with the discovery of a local market that carried freshly butchered and smoked pork and beef products. As good as it sounded, I wasn’t ready to dive into the high caloric intake yet. Now I can indulge in this occasionally, just walk a few extra miles and be good with it. I find that feeding my mind, in the sense that it is making me happy when I eat something that tastes good and that I made, is better than starving myself and being miserable.

If I had to give myself a label I would say I am bisexual. But honestly I am unilaterally sexual, I love people for who they are, not what gender. It is who is inside, who they present themselves to be. If I fall for someone it is not about
My sweet man Geoff has been dealing with a lot lately. He and I quit smoking. Because of this we were able to afford Internet at the cabin. Of course they just offered Internet here as of a couple of months ago. Many folks take this for granted, just like water, but me oh
“Summer is like the ultimate one-night stand.. hot as hell, totally thrilling, and gone before you know it.”
“Summer should get a speeding ticket.”

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
“Gone are the
I have many foods that I consider to be in the comfort bracket of my brain and one of them is a freshly toasted English Muffin. Suffice it to say, I always buy a dozen each pay day so I do not run out! I used to make them when I had a real kitchen (aka more then two small counter tops and running water). My recipe calls for milk, and I never have milk unless I buy it specifically for a recipe, (we drink soy around
Had a lovely walk today despite the fact the sky couldn’t make up its mind whether to be overcast or sunny…
Still have some Wild Alaskan Raspberries hanging in there, about two cups worth. Enough for turnovers!
I have picked the heck out of the Rosehips this summer. They really do help when we get colds in the winter!
My poor lonely
While musing over eating better with a friend and my wonderful, albeit a man with a horrid diet, fiance Geoff he surprised us with a lovely little tidbit he earned while living in a Punk household on a Punk Diet and on less then a shoestring budget, his version of a quickie pesto dish! That night we all took a run at the store and I got to fulfill my new way of
Hasselback Potatoes are a Swedish dish that takes its name from Restaurant Hasselbacken, the Stockholm restaurant where it was first served. Restaurant Hasselbacken was first established in 1870. I do not know when these were introduced, but I was reminded by my mother that my grandmother, a crazy Scandinavian, used to make them all them time! Not only are they pretty to look at but they are
I made these this afternoon instead of making lunch! Sure, I should have had lunch, but after dealing with an #epic #fail #Monday morning, I decided SCREW my tuna fish sandwich, screw Geoff’s proprietary Oreo’s! I am making TRUFFLES! So I got my happy ass in gear, ate some carrots so if anyone stopped by I kept the pretense of eating healthy and
