I tried a different veggie patty today based on tofu. They fell apart. They were still tasty and we ate them as a scramble, but still. Then I went on line and looked up the recipe in his blog from when he created it, and in that version it has ... Read more
Yesterday I was a (pretend) Earthquake Victim
I was so proud of myself. I screamed and moaned and carried on for so long I ended up horse. It was the emergency response team for my company's Fremont location, a bigger location than where I work in San Jose and there were 13 of us wounded t... Read more
Made two new veggie patty recipes!
That cookbook I talked about in my last blog, Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, I've made two of the recipes, the Easy Bean Burger and the Eggplant Tomato Curry Burger.
The Easy Bean Burger, seems bulletproof. And it is tasty--if you weren't... Read more
Got a new cookbook! Veggie burgers
Somehow when I was on Amazon, I stumbled onto a cookbook for veggie burgers, called "Veggie Burgers Every Which Way" by Lukas Volger. Since my order wasn't making it up to free shipping levels, I decided to get it on my Kindle reader, and see ho... Read more
and the scale says . . . I just went back up to Monday's weight.
My sore muscles from yesterday's Emergency Responder's training must be retaining water. I was down to 172 yesterday morning, did eliptical for 30 minutes (yay!) then did emergency responder's training all morning, where we carried ou... Read more
Tuesday there was something going on at work. People were whispering in engineering--specifically the people who had already been told that their positions were going to be eliminated. Soon after that started, a surprise department meeting is s... Read more

challenging to eat out.
clearing out calories for a going away lunch yesterday, eating less at both breakfast and dinner, saving up calories for eating a more caloric dinner this evening than usual, and tomorrow there is a 50th birthday party to go to, where I don't kn... Read more
Drained yogurt, good stuff :)
I've taken to having my fruit with a dollop of drained yogurt. I could probably buy the thicker Greek yogurt and do the same thing, but then it would be more sour, and part of the attraction is that drained yogurt is not so sour, so it goes wit... Read more
Gray day, but making progress
I got given some unique fruit today, an apple and a peach. I haven't eaten the apple yet, and it came with a warning that it might not be the best tasting apple, as it comes from sort of a free-for-all hierloom orchard, which has fruit in it th... Read more

Still planning on going to work tomorrow. With the contractors going away and looming layoffs (not me though) I need to be there to ask a c... Read more
As Charlie F said the night before. The second Saturday this month is on the first Sunday . . ." So the dance in San Rafael was rescheduled--to fit into the schedule of a travelling band that could come up from the Foggy Moon weekend and play ... Read more
Yep, cooking agin
Cooking again--this time tongue. I grew up on it and like it because it is so tender when cooked right. It is pretty lean, and I feel like I need the iron in the red meat. Haven't had red meat for a while. I need to pull it out of the pot a... Read more

The big accomplishment for the weekend is the stack of ziplocked bags now in my freezer of fat cornhusk wrapped tamales. I got the amount of meat to the amount of masa (cornmeal that goes around the meat) about right this time, and I used my new... Read more
