I know it's all in good fun. But someone's been giving me a lot of shit lately. This one's for you, my friend. (Yeah. You. You know who you are!) Now unless you're pulling my hair, get off my f--kin' ass! ha ha ha!

Here are some articles of interest. Enjoy!

Joanne's Final count - 16 / 23 / 18 / 27 / 30

Notes (to myself) about this workout: I need to go RX on the thrusters next time. I hate the black bars for the pull-ups. None of my pull-ups cleared tonight. For the dips, I either need to give the rings a shot or do them on the bars with a box. I came up way too easy.

OMG, J-Ro,

That picture was just what I needed for stress relief. It made me laugh for hours......I am going to print it and post it all over my cubicle. I may even put up yellow 'police line. do not cross' at my cubicle entrance with that picture firmly taped in the middle.....

Gladys - I make chicken curry in two ways. Both involve packets of some sort. If I'm REALLY lazy, I buy the Japanese style curry blocks and follow the directions. For last night's batch, I bought madras curry powder and followed the directions. For this, you have to add coconut milk. I used chicken, onions, and pumpkin greens from the farmers' market. Note: If you use these greens, cut the stems. They're deceptively hard - like bamboo.

Mary - I'm glad I can make your day. I'd love to see your newly decorated cubicle;P

mm, coconut milk. any recipe that asks for coconut milk deserves to be tried! by the way, i've made almond banana pancakes a couple of times now and figured out a recipe that works for me and isn't too much. and the last time, i fried it using coconut oil. delish!

just because you generously share, i'll share this easy recipe; it makes 5-6 medium size pancakes that i can eat by myself. :-)

1 or 2 ripe bananas [use 1 for thinner pancakes]
2 eggs
1/4 cup almond flour
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp almond butter

I use a blender for all of this to simplify.

Puree bananas, or mash in a large bowl with a fork until well mushed. Add the eggs and blend or mix all together. Blend in almond flour and baking soda, mixing well.

Using butter or coconut oil, fry in 10-inch skillet over medium heat for the first batch (each batch is 2 medium pancakes or 4 small pancakes). Then lower the heat to medium-low for the rest of the batter to avoid burning.
