  • Tomorrow night for dinner I will cut my acorn squash in half and put it in the oven to bake.

    While it is baking, I will brown some spicy Italian sausage.

    When the squash is cooked, I will take it out of the oven and carefully scoop the meat out, leaving the shell intact. I will mix the cooked squash meat into the browned sausage meat and I'll probably stir in a couple of chopped Roma tomatoes that aren't going to last much longer. I will put this filling back into the shells, and top it with a little grated organic parmesan cheese, and put it back into the oven until it is piping hot.

    Then hubby and I will nom nom!

            • Slept great. No alarm this morning! coffee with coconut cream x 2. Leftover shredded chicken for dinner. DH didn't wash slow cooker (I cook and he does dishes rule), so pork chops will marinate until tomorrow. I plan on doing some baking tomorrow - the Brazilian cheese bread for sure, maybe flourless zucchini brownies, probably Paleo blueberry scones. Today I need to work on my continuing Ed modules so I can recertify my NP. Also need to send out agenda and minutes form for tomorrow's conference call. Would like to set out fall pumpkin decorations when DH goes to work. Until then lazy it is. Oh, Q stayed the same and I'm grateful since I had the carrot cake.

              Forgot to mention grading 3 student projects today!

              Grading done. Continuing Ed tests taken and passed.

              • One thing about that cheese bread recipe - in Step 2 it says to add the tapioca flour to the milk while it is still in the pan. I would suggest putting the hot milk into the mixing bowl at this point, and then adding the flour. There is no reason to have to scrape that sticky dough out of the pan, and then have two ultra-sticky things to wash. Because this dough is really sticky, no kidding.

                I'm finding myself really tempted to make some more - just finished the last of it. But I don't want to make too much of a habit of it. I will be interested to hear how you like it.

                • Thanks Siobhan. The scones turned out good. In the future, I will make some that are savory so I can eat over-easy eggs!

                      • Slept fair, up about 2 hours. Catching up on my classes, students, journals while having coffee with chilled coconut milk froth (the part that rises to the top when it separates from the water). I can tell there isn't as much fat in the milk as the cream, because when I put the cream in the frige it looks like lard when I open the can! It goes farther (about a week at 1-2 cups a day) then the milk. TJs is a hike from my house - may check on-line to see what I can find. Today I have a student call, conference call meeting, will slow cook the pork chops, plan on doing a spot of organizing, and that's about it. Tomorrow is the clinic again.

                        • Thoughts on increasing my activity levels. I realized last week (since I was at the clinic 4 days) that I have a standing work station. When I'm there the only time I sit is to chart and I would estimate that is <1 hour. The rest of the time I'm standing or walking. The ledge I stand at is perfect for doing "wall" push-ups, so I've been trying to do some here and there and I've added squats too. At home, when I go past my sink, I'm doing the push-up, so now need to add squats or maybe lunges. If I make them a routine part of my normal activities then I will have increased my activity level in a relatively easy way. Just some ramblings.....

                          • I do that a lot at work, I think it really adds up. For instance in our dirty utility room I have to run the water for a really long time before it gets hot. Very wasteful, I agree, but I have to use hot water for washing. Not optional as I am sure you will agree. So I do push-ups, squats, etc. If they ever fix the plumbing I will have to find some other way to work in exercise!

                            • Kathi, you might want to get a pedometer. You'll probably find that you move around more than you thought!

                              • If you find a good pedometer let me know the brand and model please. I had one that was given to me by BIL. It didn't work very well at all. What google maps tells me is a mile trek - the pedometer said was 3/4 of a mile. and I set it all to my personal stride and everything. So....... would love to get a good one! Need to research that............

                                Great idea on the ways to get in some exercise! you go girl!
