  • Do have fun!

    Tonight's dinner is clams - husband wanted to go digging, so he did! Took him less than a half hour to bag his limit... he's frying them now (dipped in egg, then almond meal, fried in bacon fat & butter). I'm hoping to enjoy a couple of them - I have to be careful, as I have a severe allergy to oysters, and other shellfish can make me ill if I overdo.

      Yummy! Would those be razor clams? Hope you enjoyed!!!
      Never argue for your limitations.

      • Yes, razor clams. I had a bite of one, and realized that it would not be a good idea tonight. So, I had fried eggs and onions, instead.

        • Q is bouncing around. 231 lbs this morning. It is almost certainly the fried cheese I had last night. OMG yummy, but also salty, and yes, it is cheese.

          I picked up some Emu oil yesterday -- going to try it for the eczema. I keep hoping I'll lose the systemic inflammation, and then that will go away. Yeah, I know... I have to dump the dairy entirely for awhile to see if that is what is keeping the SI going. Sigh.

          We took our bikes in to get their warranty checkups/adjustments (my derailleurs are out of wack - my own fault), and they won't be done until Tuesday. *sobs* I miss my bike already. On the "bright" side, it looks like it will be raining all weekend, so we might not have been off riding anyway.

          • I'm starting to wonder if the issues with weight that you and I are having could be blamed on living in Grays Harbor.
            Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

              I'm with you there. It's lack of sunshine, I'm sure.

              On a bright note, I went clam digging with my husband twice, and we both were barefoot the entire time -- bring on the cold adaptation!

              • Barefoot on the beach! Good title for a chick flick. Or a porn movie.

                I love the feeling of barefoot on the beach. Just seems like too much life is spent in shoes.

                • Slept in/stayed home sick from work.

                  Just a bit of a weird tickle in the throat/some runny nose. Not really awful, but in my job, I talk all day long. Having a coughing fit in the middle is not a good thing.

                  I slept until 11 am. Wow. My body, apparently, needed some extra rest for some reason. I'll take it. Now I'm having herbal tea.

                  • Hope you feel better soon. This is a crappy weather week and does nothing to make you feel better.

                    • Woke up feeling actually rested today. And awake. Throat is a lot better.

                      Now, if I could just get my husband to quit with the chocolate...

                      • All right... I've eaten sardines. Haven't died yet.

                        They were HUGE ones, too. Much bigger than I remember from when I was a kid... and they had no heads (yay!). I mashed them up with an avocado, surrounded them with red onion, sliced tomatoes, and some feta cheese.

                        It's a start, eh?

                        • Shark week. Stuffy head, too. Had a night in a hotel... last night was "make up" sleep, I think.

                          It's raining. I'm spending my day hunkered down, cuddled in, and letting the brisket do its thing in the crockpot.

                          • Monday morning...

                            No matter when I go to bed, when 4:30 rolls around, it feels like I'm not getting enough sleep. *sigh*

                            I dreamt of getting up in the morning and going for a "fun run" to start my day. Really? wow. Somehow, that didn't happen this morning. Oh well.

                            • WOOO HOOOOO! I just scored a 8-qt ceramic clad cast iron covered roasting pan at Costco (think Creuset-type covered dutch oven), for $80! (Creuset equivalent: 9-qt for $490)

                              I have wanted one for braising meats in the oven for a long time.

                              • So, I bought some new jeans yesterday, as I only have 3 pair that sorta fit... and the new ones I got are just a tad bit loose. Hmm, I wasn't expecting them to be loose, they are the same brand & size as my other pair that fits pretty perfectly. Yes, I washed them, and put them through the dryer. Loose.

                                Oh well, now I'll have a nice pair of "shark week" jeans.
