    Yes, I opened the bottle, poured out the amount required for the recipe, and put the bottle back in the fridge. It's a strange custom, not understood by many.

    Strangely, although grating the horseradish almost put me on the floor, the intensity of the finished sauce is not what I expected. Although in general I am a spice wimp, I DO like my horseradish sauce to have a kick to it. I am going to be upping the proportion of horseradish to sour cream. I guess the fat in the sour cream must cut the intensity A LOT.

    Here's yesterday:

    Up at 5:30

    10:45 pork rinds with sour cream
    8oz tilapia fried in bacon grease
    1/2C zuccini tossed with
    a spoonful of goat cheese
    2 clouds

    3:30 beef stew
    1 1/2oz roquefort
    6:30 caulifower with butter and green onions
    pork chop with horseradish mustard
    olives
    2 clouds

    8:00 & 10:30 coco-choc with macadamias

    Water: 7 glasses
    Walking: nope

    Doze on the sofa from 8:30-10:00
    Bed at 11:00

    The interrupted sleep was due to having to pick Middlest up from a friend's. So was the second coco-choc. The first one was because I wanted to test the recipe. I say it passed with flying colors.

    My plan today is to eat breakfast a little earlier. Yesterday I was ravenous before I ate, and I think I ate more than I needed, what with the appetizer AND dessert.

    • For some reason, my breakfast did not satisfy. Insufficient fat? So I'm having an early lunch, the first trial of the extra-strength horseradish sauce.

          • Has it been that long?

            I guess so. Middlest and I went off on a college visit, and then Littlest had dibs on the computer for a big term project. It is sort of restful, being away from the computer, but then as soon as I am back, I'm all wrapped up in it again.

            Fell off the wagon rather drastically with banana bread and homemade southwestern eggrolls, and felt like CRAP as a consequence. Serves me right, but it was still scary how bad I felt. Oh, well. Back on track.

            I will go off to catch up on what y'all have been doing.

            • I hate it when I lose my computer to a school project.

              Consider the wagon "slip" a reminder of how bad it makes you feel. Hopefully you will remember and their won't be a next time.

                    • I can't leave this place for a minute!

                      I completely missed the spambots. Were they any good?

                      Power and stamina...how nice it would be. Fasts are easier for me in a way that 'just' being moderate. (You know the old saw: Just eat in moderation! JUST! If I could, there wouldn't be a problem!) There's something about the extreme challenge of it that makes it black and white. I AM or I am NOT fasting. There's no decision as to how much, of what, oh, just a little, well, why not?

                      However, I DID have a good 'getting back to it' day yesterday.

                      Up at 5:30

                      12:30 1 1/2 plates of sashimi, seaweed salad, rice

                      6:00 greens gratin
                      beef sausage in tomato sauce

                      Water: 9 glasses

                      Bed at 7:00

                      Which I promptly followed up with a restless night, waking up at 1:30, and not able to fall back asleep. Sheesh! (Partially due to worrying about health problems due to feeling like CRAP the day before due to, well, you know. Poor eating behavior. Plus a new little thing, which is probably nothing, but try telling that to yourself at 2:00 in the morning. Just not believable at the time.) I am debating a nap this afternoon. I usually do not nap, as it takes me so long to get ungroggy afterwards, but really, six hours of sleep is begging for it. But, I'm not tired now. Of course, at 7:00 in the evening, it will be a different story, and falling asleep then will probably set me up for another off-kilter night.

                      Don't know why I was so sleepy yesterday. I sat down on the sofa after dinner, next to my Honey, and the next thing I knew, he was shaking me awake to go to bed.

                      I feel like I want some sort of reminder of how bad going off the plan makes me feel. You would think this would be easy to remember, and heed, but I'm just an idiot, I guess. Thinking along the lines of a very elaborate bracelet (do handcuffs spring to mind?) with pictures or words on it, that I will be unable to avoid seeing every time I raise food to my mouth.

                      Or maybe I should think of them as Wonder Woman bracelets.

                          • The gym happened, to the amazement of all

                            I managed a half hour, dozy kind of nap, which wasn't mentally satisfying, but apparently gave me enough energy to stay up to my regular bedtime. So I hit the gym with my Honey. Did 45 minutes of walking and hit a spot where i was thinking, 'this is so boring'. So I stopped and read. It felt good not to push and go for the hour, and instead just do as my inclinations dictated. Forty-five minutes is quite enough.

                            Made the mistake of asking Honey's opinion of my body size in relation to someone else's at the gym. He told me the truth. Must work on my posture!

                            Here's yesterday:

                            Up at 1:30am (YES)

                            8:30 pork chop
                            1 egg
                            1/2C shakshuka

                            1:15 beef patty with horseradish
                            4 grilled mushrooms
                            1C greens gratin

                            8:00 steak with horseradish
                            1 1/2C greens gratin

                            Water: 8 glasses
                            Walking: 45"
                            Nap: 30"

                            Bed at 9:00

                            Today I will be trying the mornay sauce. It is one of the recipes that lends itself to smaller quantities, so I will be making a half-batch. I'm planning on having it with my pork chops, and since there are only two of those left, I don't want a bunch of leftovers taunting me to buy more pork just as I am leaving for the weekend. (Yes, another collage visit!) I need to find a primal substitute for A-1, is what.

                            My project for the day is a long one, so I need to get cracking on it early. Oh, that reminds me. Here's my list since last time:

                            Sheers hemmed and hung.
                            Finished mini-quilt piecing.
                            Apron hooks on side of fridge.
                            Embroidered a block.
                            Embroidered TWO blocks.
                            Finished candle mat- it is adorable!

                            I'm feeling very satisfied with all the things I am getting done.

                              • Amazon sent me a text yesterday at 5:10 pm telling me my package had been delivered. Of course, it's delivered to the Post Office, which closes at 5... My honey will be picking it up for me tonight. Unfortunately, I'm in class until 10 tonight, so won't get to look through it til tomorrow. But, also in that shipment is a jar of coconut manna. I'm so excited!!
