    You buy creamed coconut in a box. This is what it looks like:

    Thanks for the hair complement.
    Heehee, Good, then the pups did their job

      Thanks, I have not seen the creamed coconut before. I hope I can find it.

      • I love love love the creamed coconut hearts!!! I've thought about doing something like that, but never have. I suspect that adding some peppermint extract to the coconut and then dipping in dark chocolate would make them amazing!!

        So no hot tubbing? Ah well, at least you weren't faced with the wine temptation to have to work around.

          Ooh, peppermint and dark chocolate

          Yeah, no temptations and the girls were really good too. "Oh, yeah, your still on that 30 day thing..."
          no problems

            Yes. Yes it does. The cuteness adds an amazing amount of flavour and satisfaction

            AND it makes them 'feel' like a treat, instead of "just" creamed coconut on a spoon

            Why thank you

            Although I think I will keep it at 5 for a while and concentrate on form.

            • 30 DONN
              Day 24

              Food

              L – 1 cup of last night’s left over salad, 2 cups of left over squash soup, Chai with coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg
              5pm – a creamed coconut heart, 4 macadamia nuts,
              D – Stir Fry: cauliflower, carrots, onion, mushrooms, water chestnut, bean sprouts, sliced almonds, ginger, garlic, pork chops. Frozen blueberries with coconut milk, (I could almost make myself believe it was ice cream) Chai with coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg

              Stir Fry:



              Blueberries with coconut milk:

              I woke up with a sore back…might have been from too much time in bed

              Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
              Bed at 12:00, up at 11:450 am!
              My lower back was stiff and ached.

              I really didn’t accomplish much today…
              Besides laundry and dishes…of course…

              Well, I watched “Hancock” (for the 1st time) and then “Up In The Air” this afternoon, but I don’’t think I can count that as an accomplishment.

              Oh, and for some reason, my internet speed is c r a w l i n g today
              Hmmm
              University Son came home last night for “Reading Week”. I wonder what he’s doing on-line…

              We are now all in the living room, 4 laptops on the go (2 Macs, one ancient PC and one Netbook), farm newspaper open, Papillons laying on the couches, stupid in-heat cat meowing and rolling around on the floor, with "A Few Dollars More" alternating with the "Hockey Game" on the 47" TV.

              Just your typical average Saturday night

              • Your Saturday night sounds great

                I love that blueberry/coconut milk fake ice-cream combo. I make it with less coconut milk and a spoonful of almond/brazil/cashew butter and a dash of cocoa. It is quite thick and really does hit the ice-cream cravings.

                Internet speed crawling with 4 computers hitting the bandwidth? Mmmmm, I wonder why it's slow?

                  Now my daughter is asking about a coed birthday party/sleepover she's been asked to next weekend. We are all enjoying teasing her and prolonging giving her an answer University Son wants her to write a 5 page essay explaining why she should be allowed to go

                    • those little coconut hearts looked so cute.

                      Still going great guns on your 30DONN. Brilliant, I am more than impressed.

                      Cant watch that vid at work, but I can pretty much guess from the still picture that they look like they are doing what I do every morning... picking up the pooch and complaining...

                          It's snowing. The news is calling it a snow storm. We'll see...

                          • step away from the cheesecake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                            Comment


                            • I ate another coconut heart before I went for cake...

                              It was a store bought cake. Very easy to decline.

                              When I was asked why I didn't want cake, I just said I was not eating sugar or alcohol for 30 days and today was day 25.
                              Why? Penance for Jamaica was my "reason". That was easier than explaining the whole 30 DONN.
                              My BIL asked which was harder. He knows me well
                              I said not having a glass of wine while making supper on the first weekend was the hardest, but after that it was easy.

                              Next time we get together for food? I'm not sure what I'll say...
                              Maybe I'll say that I really liked the way I felt during my 30 days and that when I reintroduced sugar it made me feel sick...
                              In the summer, when we were there for burgers and I asked for mine with no bun, he wondered why.
                              I smiled and said there were so many good salads that I didn't want to fill up on a bun


                              It is still snowing. The Farmer shoveled the deck before we went for cake and I shoveled it when we came back.
