Today was UNPLEASANT, as predicted. It took me until about 11:30 to fully wake up, and I felt crappy alllllll day. Now I‘m headed to bed at 9:00.

Still, I managed to revise stuff and hit my FitBit goals and do some #audiocooking come suppertime. Spicy sausage & tofu scramble with greens makes for a great standby, especially since my Superstore had sausages for super cheap today. I got 28 for $2.70. Should keep me going for a while!

cobwebmoth I hope tomorrow is a better day for you. 1d
xicanti @cobwebmoth thanks! ❤️ 1d
GrilledCheeseSamurai Sorry about the crappy day...but hells yeah to sausage! 🤘 1d
xicanti @GrilledCheeseSamurai cheap sausage is the best! 1d

#audiogardening & #audiocooking - I‘ve been mostly in the garden this weekend. Cleared the chicory from the veggie bed (and then planted nicer things); boiled the greens in 3 changes of water; made it into pizza; roasted the roots for hot drinks.

Samplergal Looks good! 5d
Lindy @Samplergal Yes, thanks. It was tasty. 😊 5d

Time for my first #BFC “weigh” in😜Week 1
If I‘m #KeepingItReal I had some successes and a failure too 😔

My scorecard:
Fitness Goals - 1 ( need to improve during week 2)
Nutritional Goals - 3 ( can do better but off to a good start)
Book Goals - 4 (I finished 3 physical books & I‘m in the middle of 2 audio books 🤓🎧 tagged book is really good)

Overall Week 1 score 2.75

Doing some #AudioCooking ~ weekend guests 😜

Cinfhen Thanks for the positivity @Bookwormjillk @guinsgirlreads @LauraBeth @britt_brooke @BookwormAHN @bewareofwords @wanderinglynn @TheSpineView I‘m just disappointed in myself that I gave up so easily when the fitness portion of the challenge was too difficult. #NoPainNoGain I need to sweat it out a little more and build up my strength/ breathing 1w

Experimenting with making my own seasoning blends. Emani (the book‘s MC) is inspiring me 😊 #audiocooking

Gah, what a day. Had to do soooooo many things. Among them, teaching my daughter how to crochet.

Good thing, I could do some #audiocooking with the tagged book.

Not as many steps for the #BFC as I had anticipated, but I'll catch up on Monday by the latest.


dariazeoli Any steps move you forward, right? 😉 2w

I have a pilón for making mofongo, but for the amount of garlic needed for 2# of chicken, I busted out the heavy duty mortar and pestle. Making Puerto Rican food while listening to this author-narrated story of a Black and Puerto Rican young woman who loves to cook helps dispel some of the cold and gloom that doesn‘t seem to want to clear up this May. #audiocooking ?? ? ?

Warm Brussels sprout salad with bacon, tomato, and balsamic dressing: take two. It came out much less grey this time, and it was every bit as delicious as my first attempt. Once again, I ate the whole half pound of sprouts. #audiocooking

cobwebmoth I love Brussels sprouts. 2w
xicanti @cobwebmoth they‘re the best. I love how they caramelize. 2w
CoffeeNBooks Yum! I love brussels sprouts! 2w
Ddzmini Looks delicious 😋 2w

It might not look like much but Stompot is one of my FAVE childhood comfort foods!!! #audiobooking while #audiocooking

tournevis Kale. Nope, allergic. 3w
Andrea4 @tournevis well you could make it with endive? 3w
tournevis @Andrea4 Oooh, that's better. 3w

Tamra What is it? 3w
Andrea4 @Tamra mashed potatoes with cooked kale. I was taught to add sausage too. And then when served, I put (more) butter on it and white vinegar. It sounds odd, the vinegar part, but totally makes it!! 3w
Tamra That sounds delicious - I love vinegar. 😊 3w
Andrea4 @Tamra you should give it a go then! Super simple. Cooked mashed potatoes how you like, cook some kale (I steamed it above the potatoes), cook sausage how you like. Add all together or just kale and potatoes and eat sausage on the side and serve with butter and vinegar! 3w
Andrea4 @tournevis 👍👍👍 3w

Finished my third book for this #ReadathonWeekend. 18 hours invested in #25InFive and 13 hours into #24B4Monday

Today I learned that though #Audiobaking is my friend #Audiocooking is not. 🤣

Now I need to go interact with some real people. 😒

TheReadingMermaid No! Not REAL people! 😂🤣😂 1mo
Andrew65 A great time so far! 👏 1mo

Well lucky me, I was invited to participate in Home Chef‘s Recipe Tasting Society! So, my #audiocooking this evening was Salmon Bruschetta. I guess I used the wrong pan for the salmon because it fell to pieces while I was cooking it. I decided to make a piece of toast and turn it into a more traditional bruschetta (with salmon) and it worked out pretty well for me 😁

Also, the tagged book is fascinating.

Kshakal That looks so yummy!! 1mo
Leftcoastzen Mmmmmmm! 1mo
CoffeeK8 I‘m debating on reading this book... can‘t wait for your review 1mo
BlameJennyJane I just started this book and love it! Therapists need therapists and nobody really talks about that like it‘s a dirty secret that we aren‘t psychologically perfect! I can even be a great therapist and be screwed up! True story! 😜 1mo
hermyknee @BlameJennyJane it‘s been so amazing to listen to. All the introspection I‘m getting from it! My best friend is a therapist and I recommended it to her, too! And my own therapist 😂 1mo
