No, it’s not a recipe post. Well, not immediately. I’m merely clearing out a bunch of posty-notes with odds and ends that have come to mind recently.
WordPress Update This Weekend
If all goes well, I’ll be updating my blog to WP3.0.1 this weekend. Karen did it and lived to tell about it, so I’m hopeful I will, too. Should you be unable to access my blog at any point this weekend, DO NOT PANIC! (I’m sure you would have.*G*) I’m
probably not off in a corner shoving cookies in my mouth. I’ll get any problems, should they occur, ironed out eventually and be back on line. I apologize in advance for any sleepless nights you incur along the way. (tee-hee!)
From The TippyToe Diet PR Department
If you didn’t rush out to purchase your own copy of the Oct. 1 issue of Woman’s Day magazine (a.k.a. “MY” edition) and now you find that they’re all sold out, have no fear. The article is online now for your reading pleasure. Unfortunately, they included the entire photo, not the cropped version that appears in the magazine. There’s nothing truly wrong with it other than that it shows my awkward just-rushed-back-to-that-spot-after-hitting-the-shutter-on-the-camera pose, but seeing it online, of course I find numerous things to nitpick. That shirt is too large. And I have a horrible farmer’s tan (or outdoor exerciser tan, if you prefer.) And my hands are really large. I may be better at having my picture taken, but I’m not so much better at seeing the results.
Oh, and Audrey‘s and SkinnyHollie‘s articles are included, too. But you should read mine first. (Hey, if I don’t promote me, who will? It’s my PR department.) Seriously, their articles are awesome and their stories inspiring.
After seeing the recipe everywhere, I finally got around to making kale chips…and I liked them. I used the curly kale because I read somewhere that it was better. To be honest, I didn’t even know there were different kinds of kale out there. I used SmittenKitchen’s Kale Chip Recipe, only I used canola oil because it was sitting on the counter at the time. (God forbid I walk the 6 feet to the pantry for the olive oil.) I’m trying them again tomorrow night with safflower oil, my new favorite healthy fat.
Okay, that’s four posty’s worth. I can check off “de-cluttering” from today’s to-do list.
This will most likely be it for my blogging for the week, so I’ll take the opportunity to wish you all a happy, healthy weekend! Anything interesting planned?
