    I like big stewed cut tomatoes in mine.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    I put meat, carrots, pototes and (used to) mixed veggies. I would probably put green beans in it still.

    I want to make a chicken stew, but I can't think of stew without also thinking of biscuits...

    Of course on taters! I have some red ones...erm...do I need to peel them? I imagine the skin falling off and being icky in the stew, so I think yes. I'm interested in the incorporation of other tubers, but they can't be sweet because Boyfriend won't eat it.

    I shall review my cookbooks for more inspiration. I'll probably make the stew on Thursday, but pick up what I need tonight (must also get broth in a box, unfortunately, as I'm out of homemade broth).

    This weekend is going to rock for a few reasons (I need an updated "looking forward to" list): Saturday, I go to the chiropractor, then have early birthday/Father's Day dinner at my parents house (swordfish kebabs!!!). Sunday, I will probably hang with my dad and finish up that side table project. And then Monday gets special status since it's my birthday and now that I'm not super depressed, I'm looking forward to getting extra pampering from Boyfriend. Okay and then next week is 2.5 yrs with Boyfriend and whatever mystery date he's been planning.

    Boyfriend job status: So we got an awesome unexpected check in the mail. Well, Boyfriend did. A while back, his car payment company said they'd mischarged him for something and he could either get a check for the balance or have it go towards his loan balance. He said he wanted it to to towards the balance, but he just received the check today. Perfect timing! So he's going to hold onto it for rent and that takes the pressure off finding work immediately. Interview as a line cook was today and he said the chef was nice and that the job is a good spot for intro to cooking industry, esp. if he's interested in culinary school (which he is). The chef said something about looking into available shifts a few nights a week, so it's part-time, but it's something, and it's promising. We are both very happy and relieved and looking forward to hearing more next week hopefully on both jobs. Boyfriend is feeling optimistic and if offered, wants both jobs so he can get experience in security and food industry, but we'll have to see

    This, for sure.

    I like turnips and parsnips as a side dish, but more often in cooler weather. Very simply done, cut 'em up, boil till tender, butter, S&P, yum. Too often overlooked in cooking.

    Hey- that looks like a good couple of weeks! Happy Birthday/Anniversary!

    Mom never peeled her 'taters, but I'm still waffling on the skin thing. I LIKE potato skins (Mmm, baked potato pockets stuffed with butter and cottage cheese or sour cream) but they contain the lecthins that are in the potatoes. So- yeah- guess that's your call. I forgot about the greenbeans. I knew there was one other thing

    Oh shit, it's blog day. I had a topic idea yesterday, hope it comes back to me.

    My tummy is not okay with me today. Gassiness finally passed this morning, and now I feel nauseated. This morning I had a sweet potato with butter and a few eggs over easy in butter and drippings from last night's steak (did not clean the pan last night) and I feel like it wants to come back up. A cup of coffee with half & half actually sounds really soothing right now, not sure if that's just because I'm a bit cool and that would be nice and warming. I am also pretty tired, but I slept like a rock last night (another mid-night waking, but was out as soon as I got back to bed after peeing).

    Today's minor case of pessimism says, "Well, it was bound not to last." Maybe it is a delayed effect of the cookies and beer I had two nights ago. Last night, I started to feel really down on my way home from work. I was feeling guilty about not wanting to buy Boyfriend chocolate chips (he asked), a pretty silly thing to feel bad about. I don't think I can fairly say that any particular thought made me feel down, but the feeling persisted for the rest of the evening, resulting in some griping and moody self-deprecation. I don't feel as great today as I have been for the past week, since starting the Tryptophan. I don't care to try and analyze the "whys" right now, I just hope it wasn't placebo effect.

    Some things that are good about today: I don't have to make dinner tonight, I have work to do today (failed hard drive, so I'm imaging a new one and recovering data), I have an orange to eat, I don't have to drive the scooter in the rain.

    No exercise. Maybe tonight. Maybe not. My knee has been bugging me since the cookies & beer. No pain, but there is a feeling of a "bubble" in the joint, like it needs to crack (my knees have always cracked/popped with regular movement), but I can't get it to release. My leg won't go straight as a result, which means awkward walking. Thank goodness for my chiropractor appointment on Saturday!!!!

    Bleaching my hair means I get to see very accurately just how fast it grows out of my head. Regular dye up-keep dictates a refresh every 6 weeks. It has only been 11 days since I bleached my hair (12 since I dyed it pink) and I have some fairly significant re-growth (no rough estimates today, but I'm pretty sure I'll get over 1/2" this month). Go primal! Budget and laziness will dictate when/if I touch up the roots and re-dye. Without monetary concerns, I'd say I'd touch-up in 6 weeks, using Virgin Snow on the roots post-bleach and a new brand of pink the next day (not the Beyond the Zone crap I used last time). Atomic Pink (Special Effects) was my favorite in '09, it even glows in black-light, but I don't know how often I'll be exposed to that kind of light


    My hurrs are fluffy today (and man I look pretty pissed/tired). This is what happens the day after a keratin conditioner "wash". It helped take the waxy feeling out of my hair. I'll do a lemon rinse in a couple of days, maybe. I wonder if that will be enough for a regular cleansing routine. I kind of miss the super short haircut I got a few months ago, but I also really want jaw-length pink hair. So indecisive!

    You definitely have that, "Oh, your computer isn't working? Yeah, this is my concerned face. Now go f*ck yourself" look. It's rather fetching actually

    You might have to install a black light in your cubicle just to take full advantage of the awesomeness of the hair color
