This is beef, bratwurst, and cabbage.
Ate some, and made soup with the rest.
Overnight in my Little Mother's CrockPot.
Added onions, garlic, beef and chicken broth.
Rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and fish sauce.
(Rest Mother's little soul - she died already)
I wanted an updated version,
(Of the CrockPot - not Mother)
But I love this one sooo.....cuz it was hers.
Cook the soup and forget about it
in the fridge for a day.
Then warm it up again - It's twice as good!
Soup is handy - you can freeze little portions for later.
Which is exactly where this soup is going!
I did my hair with powdered bleach.
I knew Hydrogen Peroxide was just a
"gateway" product into the "hard stuff!"
And to think, I once cried over my hair!
(Must have been an expectation.)
Tears? *Poof!* Be gone! You have no power here!
Except for happy tears!
However, I greatly underestimated
the strength of bleach! That stuff ate my hair's liver!
So now my hair is - let's just say - a wee bit shorter!
But it's ok because I didn't lose my lunch over it.
I'm much more curious about the reasons,
than upset about the outcome.
(A perfect weight-loss metaphor!)
I'm still enchanted with hair color...
My "beginner's luck" is fading, maybe because
I am expanding my horizons exponentially....
Like a couple, when they have their first spat.
It's bound to happen sooner or later.
So we fix it, and get back to loving it!
And learn a little bit in the process.
Ya know, I think I might be getting better.
Compared to last year's "almost nervous breakdown!"
Yes - indeed. It took a while.
But not much phases me lately.
No hatred. No anger. No angst.
Just ok-ness and sleeping better
at night. But still not 100%.
That will come with time.
Peace, happy, puppies, kitties, rainbows, unicorns.
It feels like I just woke up from a nightmare.
Golly - this was a difficult year!
Thanks for everyone's support and comments.
Makes life much more pleasant.
Instead of dreading and fearing it,
I am actually looking forward to next year -
and next month, turning 50!
Things might just work out ok, after all!
The "Eating Less Fat" plan is kinda on - kinda off.
I don't eat butter anymore, right from the freezer.
*Don't scoff - it's good!*
But I am opting for the liquid protein meals instead.
That's already what I'm doing *mostly*
I need to check out the book reference about visceral fat.
By Dr Eades... thanks, Judith for the info on the book!
Hope your week is off to a great start!
