shirataki noodle vs shirataki noodle

Comparing two kinds of "miracle noodles"...
The actual kind and the grocery store kind.

One is ZC (no carbs) 
One has 4 carbs per serving....
Both are made with Konjack Noodles... (link)
Hint: WASH them before you serve them

Made some Zoodles....

Spiral cut Zucchini

Italian Sausage and Brats

Sherri cooks

I prance - after my nearly 20 pound re re gain loss

One kind - more translucent

The other kind - more starchy

No real taste difference

Both make for a great scramble

Fried Tomatoes in Balsamic Vinegar.....
Sausage.... Zoodles.... and Noodles


And dinnah - is - suvved, y'all!

The winner - 
If you are really strict on carbs, get the Miracle Noodles. (link)
If Albertson's in nearby, get the other!

Oh joy!

 I get to go to see Lucky Layla! (link)

And to think, we almost lost her.
Lucky Layla is fine.
But the world has gone mad!
Time and again, the Feds are tying to take away
People's rights for basic foodie things. 
Like raw milk. (link)

Best Raw Milk in town.
But now, they make you sign a paper.

Smack Dab in the middle of the big city of Plano

Now they sell Farm Fresh Eggs
Laid in America by Happy Texas Hens

And they always have lots of Raw Milk Butter!

And yogurt - even in the grocery stores!

new scrubs

WAY too hot here - 
Went in to the Library to write and cool off

Libraries are big and open 
And they LOVE to have people come in and stay a while.
The one in Allen has a cafe

Super Cool Cooling Cloth?

Well... the results are not conclusive.
The Emperor has one more scarf for his clothing set.

Did not really work any better than any other wet cloth -


Three nights last week, I came home
And collapsed by 5 pm ... slept till 5 am
Don't think I even turned over once.

Too hot for dinner.
Just had 3 scoops of protein powder all day.
For 3 days.  That, and a bit of MCT oil.
And a bite or two of cheese.
So maybe 500 calories.

Don't forget to eat!
Or you will walk sideways into doors and stuff.

So I went right in to "problem solving mode"
And ordered new scrubs - a set for each day I work...
All light colors - instead of the
Navy Blue, Burgundy, and Green 
I wore in the winter 
(Or when they keep the place at 68 degrees)

And got out the coolers and water bottles --
And am really facing down this summer heat!

Fire or Ice? I think Fire, for sure.
