Some more dreary weather…
It looks like it’s just a blurry picture — and it IS blurry, since I snapped it while I was rushing down the street — but check out the fog that greeted me this morning. Seriously… if something doesn’t change soon, I am going to rip my skin off. I can’t take this anymore!!
This should take care of the “expiration date” question once and for all… straight from CDC Laboratories:
I took an Apple Pie Larabar to work with me today, because I have a box of Apple Pie, Lemon Bar, and Cherry Pie bars that are “best by June 2009.” When I got to work, I remembered that I had an Apple Pie Larabar stashed in my desk already… and I checked the date on that one, and it was May. Just a few weeks, right? No big deal. So I decided to eat that one instead. But guess what I didn’t realize immediately, in my brilliance? … It was May 2008!! That is over a year ago! Obviously, it didn’t kill me. It didn’t taste as good — the flavor of the spices were basically nonexistent — and it was a darker color than a “fresh” one would have been. But that’s about it. Glad to offer my Guinea Pig services!
I haven’t posted “food photos” in a few days… to be honest, I’ve just been feeling very bored / uninspired / discouraged in that area lately. It’s a bit like I’m an automaton… it’s too stressful to think about it, so I am mostly sticking with the “same old same old.” And to post repetitive photos would get kind of, well, old!
I guess this would be “my” version of these, which I’d always wished I could try, but now I suppose I have an adequate substitute!
I also have to give a plug here to Lawry’s Garlic Salt.
I found this in our spice cabinet once, and neither I nor my mom had any idea why one of us might have bought it… but I discovered that it’s fantasmical (yes, I know that’s not a word, but on Blogger it becomes one) tossed with steamed broccoli. Or broccoli and cauliflower would work, too.
My nutritionist wants to know why I keep coming to see her if I “get upset with” her … I’m not getting upset with her, I’m just upset in general… but I am just really exhausted and so that rant won’t be happening right now. Yeah, I love words / writing … but sometimes I am just wholly incapable of saying anything at all.
“Good night” will have to suffice!
