I'm going on a forced leave of absence from the blogosphere. I have had it with the Internet "Fixer Upper" guy telling me my computer is out of whack with the rest of the world. My "Jiggle the handle" approach to fixing it hasn't worked, so I took the next step...I called a computer guru who is coming to pick my computer up today. He's going to clean it up, speed it up and then hook it all up again. My ultimate goal being....I want to call the Internet nutball and tell him IT IS their damned modem. So, today at 10, I'll be incommunicado with the rest of the world. This process is supposed to take 8-9 hrs. , but since this is a Fri., I imagine my computer will be away from home over the weekend. Back just in time for our granddaughter to tell me how to use it.
Fear not, tho', even tho' my computer won't be running, I will....well, walking or biking, that is. The Great Cardio Challenge waits for nothing and for no one, not even technology. I've already met this week's goal, but I'm still plugging away. I'll have to send the results to the Perfect Child via my crackberry, but upon my return, I'll let you know Week 2's final results. I know everyone will be on the edge of their seats awaiting that news. :)
My "surprise" meal last night was another using Tofu Shiratake noodles. It was "Pumped up Fettuccine". Pumpkin based, I used the noodles, onions, Laughing Cow cheese and then a bit of Parmesan on the top. It was quite good, but it needed some kind of a kick. I couldn't identify what taste it was I thought I wanted in it, but it just needed a boost. It was quite tasty, but I, personally needed another flavor to kick it up a bit. Might have been just a trifle too much pumpkin taste, as I did kinda mis-measure a tad. Tonight it is back to normal as Hubby Dearest returns from San Fran. today. I believe tonight's offering is going to be Halibut and pea pod salad. We've been a little lax in the fish dept. lately, and the fresh pea pods looked good yesterday.
