A Week of Silence

4 03 2011

It’s hard to believe there has been a week of silence ! I feel in a slight shame spiral for not posting but we have had a house guest from UK staying with us which dampered my experiments in the kitchen. I could’t have served our guest an untested recipe. I was already serving him sugar free and low carb, which he was a good sport about.
We were pretty on-the-go the whole time he was here. We took Mike to skate at the waterfront.

To our friend’s restaurant, Dangerous Dan’s for some serious poutine and a triple decker grilled cheese with bacon called the “Kenny Cheese”, named after my wonderful husband Ken.

We talked a lot about minerals, and work, as he works at the Natural History Museum, London. As well, there was a lot of Oblivion talk with Ken. It seems they are both big fans of alchemy within the game *face palm*

We drank a lot of coffee, from all the Toronto indie roasters, and I think Mike liked Darkhorse the best, 49th Parallel coffee from a BC roaster. I made a bunch of different biscotti up before his arrival and nailed what I thought was going to be a diasterous glutton free biscotti. So there was a lot of biscotti eating, peanut butter jalapenos with bacon, and a lot of gaming-mineral talk. It was a great couple of days.

Foodwise, I seem to have lost my way a bit, I am stressed at work and on the run a bit more, so my eating hasnt been stellar as of late. As well, a lot of eating out feels too overindulgent and I always worry about my daily bottom line. We are off to the market tomorrow morning, and have planned two weeks of very easy, casserole-low carb meals, so they can be made early and heated when I get home. I have a huge convention starting Sunday and March Break on the horizon, so having a plan is uber important.
Look for my new casserole recipes coming this week.

no shame!!! Dude, if you didn’t fall off the perfection wagon every once and awhile I’d start to wonder if you were human. Looks like you had a really fun week with friends and that is what we all need. Good luck with your next few crazy weeks 🙂

Thanks Lynn. It is better to say it out loud, and then move past it. I am sorta excited about these casseroles coming. How are you doing ? Feeling good ?

I will be looking forward to coming home and getting back on the wagon myself. I have taken leave of my senses over here.
