I feel a "Mad Scientist" dish coming up today ...
Saturday, December 29, 2012
In my efforts to get myself back on track, and having free time (which is a rarity for me) I have a creation that I want to make today .. A "pastaless spaghetti chicken casserole" .. Hmmmm what will it contain .. :) Enquiring Minds want to know .. (even me .. lol)
I am not one to cook by any type of recipe .. I try and by about the 3rd ingredient I'm working on substitutions .. and well -- by the time I'm finished .. it's nothing like the original recipe .. In fact .. my friend down in Kentucky and I always had a fun joke .. I would have to drive 9 hours to visit her just to find out what a recipe tasted like .. Once I would know .. then I could drive 9 hours back home, and make it to see how close I could come without having to follow the recipe .. and how could I make it even BETTER !!!! lol lol lol ..
I thought .. what a good idea, if I post my Mad Scientist creations on my SP blog .. :) Wouldn't that be fun ??? :) I already have a Page in FB for my creations .. why not here as well ... :) I'm proud to say that MOST of my creations come out yummy .. even though I have a few that burp and well -- don't get the glorification of others .. :) But those I post on my FB page, in regards to "what it's missing" and I usually get some valid, good suggestions on how to bring it back .. lol
My practice time seems to be paying off ... Officially I will be going back to WW on January 8th .. and I'm actually getting myself excited about it. I ducked out at the end of October; when life was just wayyyy too chaotic; and that was really the only thing I could drop because all other's had outside obligations .. I have kept my membership alive, just have not gone to any meetings .. Yes .. I have gained a bit more, but it had more to do with Stress-eating, than dropping WW .. and I believe it would have happened whether or not I went to meetings or not ...
I left WW in October, because I was feeling FAKE .. I don't like that feeling .. I was a MODEL WW member at the meeting and had all the right answers, and the right solutions, but as soon as I stepped outside the meeting .. it was every man (or woman) for themselves ... and I hated that feeling.. I HATE being FAKE .. I needed to step back and reassess my entire life.. and now that I have .. MY HEALTH is higher up in the priority list .. without MY HEALTH .. nothing else will matter now .. will it ??? SOOOO January 8th I kick off another year of WW .. and I need to learn to do it without OBSESSING about food .. Now THAT is going to be a trick .. but I think there is going to be a happy medium in there somewhere, and trust me .. for those that know me .. I WILL FIND IT !!!! :D
I will post back later with my "Mad Scientist Creation of Pastaless Chicken Spaghetti Casserole" .. until then .. have a great day !!!!!
