The unstoppable Tara has been ordered by her trainer The Godfather to go starch free for two weeks. In my pre-caffeinated state this morning I offered my moral support by also giving up the starchies for 14 days. You know how you can be doing all sorts of different things during the day but your mind is on something else? I’ve been thinking about hashbrowns all day. I’m going to stick to the plan, though.
I love you, but we need a little time apart. Believe me, we aren’t over for good. Distance makes the salivary glands work crazy overtime. Think of this as ‘good day’ rather than ‘good bye’.
So good day to you:
- English muffins
- Trader Joe’s wraps
- pasta (in each of your delicious varieties, especially the cheese filled types)
- chips (we have spent too much time together lately and you know it)
- potatoes (you who have nourished generations of my ancestors)
- buns for my veggie burgers
- wedding cake*
But in the meantime, I’ll be spending some time with my precious legumes and my favorite protein-grain-thing (quinoa). And there’s always my first love, cheese. Although in the summer I’m less in love with cheese and more in love with berries and nectarines.
*I’ll be licking the frosting off the cake parts. Hopefully when no one is looking, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. I’m willing to stick to the no starch thing, but I’m not passing up wedding cake frosting.
Oh! Remember how ages ago my computer stopped loving recognizing my camera? My electronics have apparently reconciled because now I can put pictures on the computer again!! In short, my posts will become somewhat more visually stimulating. Assuming that I know where my camera is and the battery is charged (that’s a check and a check for now).
