Weight today: did not weigh

Exercise, day 19 of 67:
Evening dog walk
Scrubbing cabinets and floors—that counts, right?

Supplements taken

Food today:
B: scrambled eggs, bacon, leftover chocolate peanut butter mouse (I know! I know! I was embarrassed to even type that out)
L: salami, cheddar, celery
D: hot wings, salad w/ mixed baby greens, artichoke hearts, green onion, avocado, cucumber, grape tomatoes, blue cheese, homemade creamy garlic dressing
D: leftover chocolate peanut butter mousse

No gym today, my son was home and I just decided to clean the house instead. Cripes, how much deep cleaning does this place need? Will it never end? My entire kitchen is now in my dining room. I completely gutted my kitchen—every drawer and cabinet is empty and scrubbed and repaired and all the dings touched up. Now to put away only the stuff I use, in convenient places. I have a very small kitchen—do I really need 65 wooden spoons, 2 stock pots, 5 aprons, 3 dutch ovens, 4 pyrex 9x13s, 8 pie plates etc. etc. etc? Everything is willy nilly jammed into every nook and cranny. Uh, no. Out it goes. I thought I did this before, the proliferation is just out of control behind my back! LOL, I love my empty kitchen, I don’t want to junk it all up again!

My positive for the day: I know exactly where my dough hook is. I won’t be using it any time soon, but I know exactly where it is!!

Success today. On to day 236!

Your tuna salad sounds a lot better than mine!!! I usually put some dill relish in there. Dill weed and garlic sounds better! Cracked pepper goes on everything around here. Lots and lots of it.

The tip I read where I got the mayo recipe suggested marking the container with a date one week AFTER the date on the egg carton. I try to keep a roll of masking tape in the kitchen for these type of labeling jobs but it keeps disappearing. Now I take a marker and write KITCHEN on the side of the roll so at least when I find it in the man-dungeon he can't tell me it didn't come from the kitchen.

Seriously. Will you come clean my kitchen? I know what you mean about many multiples of stuff where one or two would be fine, etc. Where do they come from???

Amber your road trip sounds beautiful. I want to go to the Oregon coast and then hook up with you girls!

I miss the Pacific NorthWest so much sometimes I could cry! You just can't imagine how much I would love to come along on that trip. Wouldn't it be great? We would all get to meet each other and be in one of the most beautiful places in the world. *sigh*
Sounds like you have your cleaning pants on this week...keep up the work. I made a list for you when you finish there. Plenty to do over here I'll provide all the french cheese and pâté you need to get the job done

Thanks, Laura! I've missed my workout partner!

Diane, I do have my cleaning pants on, as well as my Princess Leia Metal Bikini apron. If I could, I'd come scrub your house. WILL WORK FOR FRENCH CHEESE AND PATE! Oregon is glorious this morning on this fine spring day. We're going to get outside today and play! Do you still have any family here in the northwest to come visit? If not, you can just come visit me. Any time!

Come on over, DG! Thanks for the mayo tips-- I'm not sure I'd be able to make enough mayo to suit my mayo usage. I seem to use mayo in everything... and the fresh cracked pepper! I load that onto just about everything savory as well. Nice heavy blanket, thank you! Waiters at restaurants holding the big grinder over my salad always give me the stinkeye.

My son still lives in Seattle, although he is just a roomie with a few other guys. I have a large group of friends I left behind there though and many are ones I would call 'family' They took me in when my life fell apart with the ex and I lost my house and all. Friends like that are keepers, no matter where you go

I want a princess leia metal bikini apron NO wonder I cant get my kitchen clean *kicks rocks*

I ordered mousse de canard last night in my grocery order... should I save you a slice?

mmmmm oh yes! I will serve it to you while wearing the slave bikini apron. It was a gift from my husband last christmas and it cracks me up every time I wear it. I have a penchant for awesome aprons! Yes, true friends you can count on are worth more than diamonds!

Thanks, Janet! Some corners of my home have been neglected for eons and even glossed over the last time I got the cleaning bug.

Okay ladies, here's a pic of me in my Leia apron. I have the showercap on because I was cooking a big pan of onions before we left the house, and I didn't want my hair to reek of onions. Mission accomplished! Anyway, I looked so goofy a picture HAD to be taken. This should be my new profile pic, no?

It's just a shower cap, baby. I know it's all pink and plasticky and tells the world I don't want my hair to smell like onions, but I'll never ever do it again! I promise!

heheheh-- Amber I was caramelizing a giant pan of onions, so they cook and cook and cook and when they're done I just reek of onions. We were going somewhere and I didn't want to smell like onion! The shower cap worked! But, since I promised martini I wouldn't wear one anymore, next time I'll wear my flowered swimcap.

My kitchen is a thing of beauty now! Well, as beautiful as a 1960's kitchen can look! My home was built at the tail end of the mid-century modern craze, so it's a weird little kitchen, but I love it! Now I love it more that everything is more handy and completely weeded out. I tossed out about 6 baking pans, 4 pie plates, a mountain of all that annoying silicone bakeware, about 5000 stale tea bags, 16 half eaten bags of snack foods, 15 jars of spice that has lost the oomph, etc. etc. etc. Gosh I love my kitchen now! I have an entire cabinet devoted ONLY to low carb baking! YAY!
