Plugging away

Got the bounce: weight is up 1/2 lb: 182.2 today from 181.7 yesterday. I should confess that last night I had a fair amount of fish—12 oz minimum of Pacific sword fish and sockeye salmon—in a salad of greens, half a Vidalia sweet onion, and 1/2 cup black rice. The dressing was 2 Tbsp of olive oil with paprika, salt, pepper, a clove of crushed garlic, 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard, and white wine vinegar, shaken vigorously in a small jar and then poured over. Also a half-bottle (split) of chardonnay, with a dry pint of fresh red raspberries for dessert. So I celebrated, and the gain could be that or simply the bounce.

But today I’m making a new batch of grub—finished the last of the two-greens grub yesterday. I will use the rest of the swordfish and salmon I bought in this grub, but I’m adding it at the very end, so it doesn’t get stirred to pieces as the grub cooks. Recipe (probably “description” is a better word) later.

This morning I suddenly felt overwhelmed by the shaving equipment and supplies I’ve accumulated, so in a couple of months I’m going to have a big sale and get rid of a lot of it. More on that later. But I really want to cut back. I have bought things one at a time to try them out so I could write about them in the book, but if you do that over a long enough time, you end up with a lot. (The same idea behind a regular savings program.) Time to trim back.

  1. Your dinner sounds so good that I have absolutely no sympathy for whatever problems it created. I had two rolls with real butter at dinner last night, and bread is so unusual for me that it was like eating cake. As a friend once said, I don’t want to risk getting hit by a truck after eating a veggie burger.

  2. LOL. When I was growing up in Oklahoma, my aunt Thelma in driving home to Ardmore from Healdton rolled their LaSalle (they don’t make them like the used to—not sure if it rolled, but I believe it did) with two grocery bags of pecans in the back seat. She was unhurt, and she reported that her thought as the car left the road was a fervent wish that she had eaten the strawberry shortcake at lunch. They continued to drive the car (it was so cool—a two-tone auto with the clock mounted in the steering wheel with some sort of gimbal mechanism and turning the steering wheel wound the clock. For months afterwards, at odd intervals in turning a corner, a pecan would roll out from some secret recess.
