You know when there isn’t a lot going on I feel like I have nothing to contribute and feel bad for you all reading me. But ya know what? I’m going to talk at ya anyway. Alright?
I’m over my final tally from last year for Nanowrimo with 5 days left to go. I think I could very well do another 10k if I focus well. That would make me well over 40K! That would rock. I’m hoping to go sit in Starbucks or something tomorrow to get more writing done. I’ve been doing alright with topic ideas but I could always use a few more. So if you have some, fire them my way in the next couple days, will ya?
The exercise is going alright I guess. I’m doing it, so that’s all I care about. I’m still exhausted after 30 mins. I’m really hoping that I’ll get an energy boost from exercise, especially if I have a feeling Master will increase the duration any day now. No weight loss yet, but my diet has to change more (which will happen after Thanksgiving). I’ve been doing low carb without a real plan, so I think I’m going to pick up South Beach as my plan again. It was easy to follow and required no carb counting, calorie counting or anything. If it was on the approved food list, I could eat it (in measured portions).
I found a French bread recipe that I’m going to try out tonight/tomorrow. If it turns out I think it will be my go to bread because it doesn’t have rice flour in it (too grainy) and doesn’t require a rise at all! I do want to invest in a French Loaf pan if it does work out. It will make it easier. For now I’ll be improvising with foil rolls to create a couche.
I’m making a feast fit for at least 6 people for Thanksgiving even though it will only be Master and I. I love leftovers from turkey feast. Hopefully froggyKM does too because she’ll be eating some when she’s here this weekend. Hehe. So far the plan is:
Get up early and make the bread – if the loaf tonight/tomorrow turns out that’s the recipe I’ll use. Make the deviled eggs. Prep the carrots for roasting, peel the potatoes, take the turkey out of the brine and let it dry. Prep the corn casserole, make the mushroom white sauce for green bean casserole and the fried onions to go on top. Then figure out if I can make a GF pie crust with all the flours I have (cause I might opt not to make a pie) and if I do I’m making chocolate cream pie.
Somewhere in there I’ll watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
How’s your holiday preparations going?
