Random Tuesday Thoughts
I did a little more bean therapy last night and finished off the green beans with our chicken tacos. I did a little more than blanch them so they were a more traditional texture instead of having that bite fresh beans can have. I just wish I could add a little salt to them but I don't need it.
I'm getting excited. Our friend Sam is going to be on Chopped Sunday! I hope you guys tune in to Food Network to give our local boy some support. I think you'll see why we think he's a sweetheart.
I fiddled with a new push pop recipe yesterday that I'll likely be sharing this week. I learned something...marshmallows float even in smoothie consistency drinks. Are you intrigued? No? Fine, who asked you? HA! I keed, I keed.
I got the sweetest thank you card from a friend we met up with. I'm so glad to see that not everyone has abandoned this practice. It may seem old fashioned and why bother sending a note when you can just email or text? 1) You can't text me. I don't use a cell phone. I work from home, that's where you can call me, on my Jurassic land line. If I'm out, I want to enjoy myself and who I'm with not hear about what the dude in the parking lot is doing, where you're going for dinner or some random gripe session thereby harshing my mellow. 2) It's (thank you notes in case my rant got you off track) personable and I like seeing people's handwriting. When someone close to me passes away, what do you think comforts me more to look back on...an email with a sentiment in Helvetica or a Christmas card that may have nothing more than "Love you, Great Grandma and Grandpa" handwritten in it? I'll take the card/note hands down every time.
We did a kick butt workout last night and I'm feeling it today fo' sho. I love and hate hard workouts. Let's you know you did something...it also can pull random muscles and make you walk funny.
I think that's enough randomness for today, you think?
Tell me something random about your day yesterday (or today if it's been eventful).
