    Mmmm, I am just such a fan of mushroom cream sauces! Dangerous though, as I could probably just eat the whole batch with a spoon!

    I had a dream last night about eating marrow with a spoon.. which I've never done. It was weird. Must be bone broth on the brain!

    Well, enjoy your supper, I'm sure it will be extra amazing after fasting Take care!

    Must try to make some sort of broth with the bones in my freezer. Also, I will step on the scale and see where I am. I admit to being nervous...

    *sigh*

    So the scale, once again, has refused to budge. What do I need to mix up? Fewer carbs again? Shall I head back to less than 50 territory? That seems to be where I had my success. I just don't get it. Even on a higher carb day, I'm still usually less than 75...

    Frustrated.

    That's weird! I had that happen the other day, and I never did figure it out. Bletch! Maybe a poorly rinsed cup? So strange.

    How are things otherwise? Work still crazy? Or is that a constant?

    Yeah, work is generally crazy. Theoretically it will be getting better. I'm now switched to my new services, however, I no longer have an office. At least until they move someone else who is switching jobs. I have no idea how long this will take. So for now, I am wandering the hospital aimlessly, looking for computer space... :P

    Also, the strangest thing about the soapy coffee...I couldn't tell when it was still hot. Only when it cooled some... O.o

    Ugh to not having an office! Not fun. Ummm... but lots of slow mvmt wandering around?

    Spiralicious and Emerald Rose on the mysterious case of the international randomly soapy coffee! I would just like to mention that "soapy" is one of the worst things a thing can taste like - I often think lemon candy (not that I eat candy, of course) tastes like soap.

    Finally made the soup! Sort of. Had to use ground beef, since we were tragically out of Bacon. I have discovered that I DO NOT like turnips. The soup itself turned out pretty good though! I am definitely going to try it again some time

    Sounds like you are doing ok there Em! Hang in there with the plateau! Have you thought of doing a leptin reset for a week or so to kick the fat burning back into high gear? I remembered the other day after having a few bad weeks that I had started out with doing a leptin reset and I needed a reset after a carb frenzy lately. Going to do it for a week or so and then reassess. Maybe that would help you too? Just a thought.

    I like turnips in very small amounts added to soups or stews. More than one to a pot of stew is too much for me, but just a little can be rather yummy. And the greens are delicious fried with onion and garlic!
