Time goes by fast, doesn’t it? John has been gone since Friday and will be coming back on Wednesday night. My swinging bachelorette freedom days will be over soon. For some reason, I am super, super productive when he is out of town. Not sure why that is, but we both notice it.
I have managed to do that ride with my sister, recaulk the tub, strip and paint half the porch, stripped and painted my side table in the living room, plus various other household things. Go me!

I am not trying to build up strength right now, just keep it where it is at. I also don’t want to get sore for all the biking I am doing this month. So this was a nice workout. I came home for my breakfast of lifting champions – protein waffles!
I never get tired of these, although I imagine people reading my blog do. Oh well.
I did get hungry mid morning, so I had some grapes, which were supposed to be with lunch.
These grapes are giant, too. Very tasty.
So I was out shopping the other day and fall things are showing up in stores. what do I find?
For real? I picked up the bag and sniffed it, but I couldn’t smell anything. You know I do that with the candy corn bags because you can smell that delicious candy corn sent through the plastic. Just like the addict would do, right? 😳 I don’t know if I will buy these M&Ms because I somehow just don’t think it will taste like candy corn. Imitation candy corns never taste or chew like the real deal.
As much as I would have liked candy corn, I settled for my afternoon latte.
It was a busy work day. I am playing a bit of catch up, which I hate to have to do. I needed a quick dinner.
That’s cauliflower rice! I tried it for the first time. I grated the cauliflower (frozen florets that I thawed out in the fridge), then cooked it in the microwave for a couple minutes – then sauteed with some coconut oil and S&P. It has a brown color because I used the same pan as the turkey burger. I like the cauliflower this way much more than just eating the florets.
I had a bit of a chocolate craving and I was browsing the net and saw a bunch of recipes for mug cakes. I don’t know if any of you have tried these, but microwave cakes never work for me. The texture is just eggy and spongy. I thought – I can wait 20 minutes, right? So, I made a molten chocolate cake.
I should have broken the top so you could see the gooey center. It was just:
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup of powdered sugar
- tiny pinch of salt.
Mix all ingredients together and put into a sprayed 4 ounce ramekin. Bake for 20 minutes in a toaster oven at 350.
This really satisfied my sweet tooth and I am enjoying it while typing this post!
