How was your Wednesday? What’s for dinner?
I had Matthew with me last night and today, and we had a lot of fun—I got absolutely nothing productive done (except a little work when he was asleep)!
We did put together a lego alien spaceship (and then played alien invasion).
We also played Rummikub with my Mom, and went on a bike ride today (it was 46 degrees out!).
I’m never really happy about Matthew going home, but we’re getting better at the process—he used to get mad and cranky before he left, but now I think he is old enough to realize that we’ll always have more time together.
Mom and I always talk about how transitions are bumpy. For all of us. I spent several years of my life in “limbo” …not knowing where I was going, or what was going to happen (or at times, I thought I knew and then everything changed in an instant). I think, sometimes, that life is just like that—even when we think we know how things will turn out, there is always a potential for surprises and change.
I suppose there’s always some aspects of life that are in limbo!
I’ve learned to (mostly) roll with that. It makes for a lot less stress! I’m also glad I’m at a point where I have a job(s) that I like, and have a lot of freedom regarding my choices about how I live.
One constant in my life? I will always love crab cakes!
I also want to reconfirm the verdict about the chocolate mini cakes.
One thing to note: I put some plain ones in a plastic bag, and the next day they were perfect and cake-y and slightly chewy. The ones that were in the fridge with the cherry berry coconut cream on top did dry out a little bit. I think next time, I’ll bake them for 13 minutes instead of 14, and also, I’ll only put the topping on right before serving so I can leave the cakes in a sealed container outside of the fridge. I have an idea for how to make another non-chocolate variety very soon (maybe tomorrow…).
I ate one for breakfast today, and it was a perfect start to the day.
Elimination Diet Update: I have added dairy back into my diet for four days, and have not had a single negative effect. I made sure to have it several times throughout each day (which is more than normal anyway), and I haven’t even had a symptom or suspicion even once. I’m going to dial back my intake to using dairy as an accessory, like I was doing before, and I’m going to add in nuts next. I have some almonds in the dehydrator right now…
I’ll be spending the rest of the week catching up on work and I want to go to yoga class again on Friday.
Do you go with the flow, or does change or the unknown stress you out?
What do you have going on for the rest of the week?
