RECIPES FROM 9/30/2017

I have been very remiss in posting these up. The act of writing, indeed the act of streaming as well, are a mentally demanding. I am the type of person that draws strength from  interaction. It doesn’t matter if it’s positive or negative (although it’s better if it’s at least constructive) just as long as someone is listening. These recipes pose a problem because recipes don’t generally inspire interaction. You go to a website, you find what you’re looking for, and you make your food. I want to thank those of you that have “yelled” at me in the last few weeks to start putting these up again. I hope you enjoy and I hope you let me know what you think. Did these recipes work for you? Did I present them in a way that made you want to try them? Did you tweak them to make them your own in any way? Leave a comment and let me know.

I couldn’t seem to find anything that I wanted to cook or that I thought would be interesting. I had had this mac n’ cheese recipe sitting in the wings as a sort of “emergency recipe” for just such a situation. It was a good recipe, but not necessarily “knock you socks off”.

Fat Guy In a Little Coat #8

I knew this day was coming….

I am a little disappointed, but not truly surprised.  It was a hectic week and I did a lot of things wrong.  I stayed up too late over all and there was this whole matter of heading out to St Louis for the Twitch Meetup. There was a lot of overeating occurring there.  But I mean, with food like this can you really blame me.

So…I’m up from last week and this is not great…but also not unexpected and not the last word. I just have to refocus and get back on track. Which is oddly hard this week…
