Lordy, another day of taking pictures of my food! I think this is going to make me crazier than I sometimes think I am!! I might as well add the daily weather to my reports. It's cool and overcast and will probably drizzle some throughout the day.
I stayed up so late talking to Martha about walking around England that I never got to my yoga-Pilates class this morning. So I did make myself go down to the New Hartford Senior Center's exercise class. It's actually quite a workout if you throw yourself into the movement and really DO it.
I stopped at the farm stand on the way home and bought a bunch of vegetables. I want to make a pot of soup. The pot included local green beans and zucchini, a sweet onion from Texas, half of a fennel bulb, a jalapeno pepper, a big glop of tomato paste, some fresh peas, and a whole box of organic spinach. All in a base of organic vegetable stock.
This is the "before", before it got put through the blender.
The afternoon spent making more diphthongs.
We had to take our full costumes to rehearsal tonight, so I was rushed getting ready.
There is a story behind this drink and the name. Last weekend, I had a bourbon-tasting with a friend. We blind tasted five premium bourbons and threw in one 100% rye for comparison. We were unable to identify the rye, and four of the bourbons were found quite wanting, including a $50 SMALL bottle of "Baby bourbon" made in New York state. I didn't think anyone could call a spirit "Bourbon" if it didn't come from Bourbon Co., Kentucky. But anyway, I need to make something palatable with the bourbons we didn't like straight. Hence the Salvage. And it was excellent.
Finally, an end to the night with decaf and my square of chocolate.
That finished my chocolate bar.
I wonder if I'll dare weigh in at Weight Watchers tomorrow?
