I have a clarification to make. This is important so pay attention. In my last post about our Favorite Turkey Chili, I stated my questioning of Scott and my compatibility after he requested I begin to cook gluten free. I made a joke! First of all, I expected for the change in diet to occur eventually because I experienced him already following it. Second, and most important, I knew from the beginning I had stumbled upon someone pretty special… I just needed to make sure he knew what he was getting himself into! But I know now that he can handle it… and I have the ring, so we’re good 😉
Ok, tell me if this would make you awkward. A couple days ago, Scott went to the grocery store and I asked for him to pick up a couple things for me as well… one of the items being an organic cucumber. I love to chop them into spears with salt, pepper and cayenne for a quick light snack. Anyway, today I went into the fridge for my cucumber fix and realized this huge plastic-wrapped vegetable in the fridge (I thought might be a squash) is the cucumber!! HELL-OO! I do not know if it’s due to the things I hear certain people talk about around the marina or what, but I don’t think I’d feel comfortable buying that at the store by myself. But I also always think people are staring at me… I’m not paranoid at all though. Glad I have my innocent-minded man to buy my awkward produce for me. Maybe I will work that into our wedding vows… another joke guys!
While I snacked on the spears, I tried getting creative with a quinoa dish, but I’m not sure it’s share-worthy and I may need to play with it a tad more. It includes cauliflower and turmeric and mixing with hands, which is why my nail looks yellow in the pic with whipped coconut oil. Yep, I did that tonight too, whipped with a little peppermint essential oil – such an amazing scent in the morning.
* deeeeeep inhale…. exhale slowly *
That’s about all I have to share with you tonight. My boss wanted to send me home early today due to my sniffling and sneezing and coughing like a mad man. So instead I requested an extra hour or so in the morning. I’d much rather take my time in the morning. That way I can water my plants and listen to the birds chirp while sipping on some warm tea… in my bathrobe. Mmmmm hmmm.
