  • Bisky, I wondered about how long Nanc was nuking her steamer but then I realized that I had a smaller size so likely cooks more quickly. I think Nanc said she does broccoli for 4 minutes. I do 2 to 2.5 minutes and it's just right for me. I would probably start with 2.5 and you can always cook it more. It's hard to "uncook"…

  • Nanc, yeah I am not sleeping well at all lately. Really odd, but I do go through periods of time now and again. Usually I love to sleep and it's more about waking up than staying asleep. How exciting about the new rug! I need some rugs for upstairs (all wood floors) but I am waiting for my contractor to do a little more…

  • Oh, and I ordered the larger steamer. The small one is actually perfect for one serving of something for me, but I can steam multiple items at once with the larger one.

  • Bisky, do you precook the garbanzos? I am so happy for Obi!!! Sounds like he is settling right in with the family. Hope you got some rest. Nanc, congrats on finishing up your organization project. Must feel great to have it all finished. Plan for today... B - half a sweet potato, blueberries, steamed kale with apple and…

  • Bisky, so happy to hear that Obi is going to have a loving home from here on out!!! When is his vet appointment? Waiting for laundry to get dry and I'm heading up to my desk. I got up at 3:30 so not as bad as yesterday but still hoping my sleep routine settles soon. Plan for today: B - half a sweet potato, blueberries,…

  • Mornin' all, I seem to be channeling Nanc in my sleep habits. I went to bed around 9:30 last night and at 2 am I was wide awake although I tried to get back to sleep. Finally got up around 3:30 to get on with the day. I can nap later but I'll get in a few hours of work first. I quit coffee for 5 days and decided to have a…

  • Nanc, I think I got a smaller steamer. It's fine for me though. Makes a good sized portion of broccoli or kale for one person. Sounds like you've had a busy day! I am definitely taking a nap now that I'm home from the office. Bisky, we're on pins and needles to hear whether you'll be keeping Chief (and if you will be…

  • Oh, and congrats on the new low, Bisky! Woohoo!!!

  • Nanc, sorry the sleeping thing is off again. I woke up around 1:30 this morning myself and couldn't get back to sleep. I finally got up for real around 2:30 and have had a cup of coffee, ate some cantaloupe, cooked up some sweet potatoes and steamed a bunch of kale, and cleaned a head of red leaf. Takes 1.5 minutes to…

  • That is so sad, Bisky! Poor guy. I hate to judge without knowing everything, but something doesn't seem right there.

  • Bisky... my parents had a cocker spaniel and we would jokingly call him caca ears because those ears could get stinky! :# Do you think you'll be keeping him or just helping to find a permanent home? Coffee, glad to hear that everything went well. Best wishes to your husband. When will he be getting home? Awesome thinking…

  • Awww... Bisky, I am so glad you have him safe in your home and his fortunes are improving rapidly! I got up way too early this morning. Hit the treadmill, cut up a cantaloupe, going to get to the office early.

  • Bisky, how did the pupper meet and greet go? Nanc, happy to hear your eye is doing better. Yikes that was scary! Love your energy with all the cooking and prep work. Went back to the grab and go tonight but was more selective about getting completely oil free dishes. Used the microwave steamer again this morning for some…

  • Oh no, Nanc! I hope you are doing better today. That is a very sweet looking dog, Bisky. So sad for him, but if he gets to come live with you then things are already looking up for him. I've been watching some Chelsea Mae youtubes in the mornings while I treadmill. Thinking that was a recommendation from Nanc a while back.…

  • Agreed that is really nice you are using your mom's china, Nanc. I have my grandmother's china which is very simple and elegant. I haven't used it in decades and was thinking I need to get it to some of my cousin's kids so it stays in the family. Bisky, glad you are able to laugh about the latest with your sis. That would…

  • Hi all, having internet issues and couldn't get a lot of work done here at home today. It kept going in and out and disconnecting me and it got very frustrating! I am going to bed early and hopefully get to the office super duper early tomorrow. Thanks, Nanc :) Today was good other than not being able to work much. Or…

  • A little drier and less sweet than the orange sweet potatoes. Pretty tasty!

  • Morning, all! Nanc, do you have a scanner? I hardly keep any paper anymore. Just scan and right into the shredder. If you use microsoft 365 you can store in onedrive or you could use dropbox or something like that for a backup system in case something happens to your computer. Back to normal at work thank goodness for…

  • Hey all... the hits just keep on coming! Yesterday I got to the office and my HD was fried. Deader than dead. Called our IT guy to be sure and he confirmed death and swapped in a new HD. I started the verification of data from our online backup but it was taking forever so I came home around 8:00 and it should be finished…

  • Glad you are feeling better about things, Bisky. I got some precooked beets and am going to try adding those to my smoothies instead of beet juice so that I'm getting the fiber and other good stuff. Nanc, sounds like you have having a very fun and productive week. I left the office on time today because I am beyond beat.…

  • Hi Coffee... long time no see. I am very sorry to hear about your sister. I work 60+ hours a week. Not even kidding. Lately I've been eating stuff from a WFPB grab and go that opened just a few minutes from me, but my weight crept up a few pounds. I think I'm just overeating it because it's all so good and different, so…

  • That's beautiful, Bisky! Nanc, I'm so jealous. I would love to have a week off. Heck, at this stage I'd settle for a weekend! LOL Hope you and Lulu enjoyed your spa day. I ate potatoes and watermelon today. Wasn't too hungry and the potatoes fill me up. I'm going to try sticking to the potato plan for the next 10 days and…

  • Oh, and Nanc, I bought a watermelon too. I got one last week and it was wonderful! I hope it's a sign that it will be a good summer for watermelon.

  • Mornin' all. I have been busy this morning. First load of laundry in the dryer, russet potatoes baking in the oven, gold simmering stovetop for mashed. I will cook up some more potatoes mid-week. My variation on Mary's Mini is going to be potatoes and cooked veggies for breakfast lunch and snacks, and a smoothie in the…

  • That's sweet, Bisky. Looking forward to seeing the pic. Nice score at the produce section. Nanc, I am not starting the MM until tomorrow. I've been battling an ant infestation and wasn't into cooking in my kitchen last couple days. I put out the liquid bait traps on Thursday and as of this morning there is very little…

  • Aww... that's too bad about the smileys, Nanc. I've always enjoyed them. Yay for getting the treadmill moved. I'm off to bed... another long day.

  • Thanks, Nanc. That's probably what I'll need if I downsize. I keep going back and forth what I'm going to do. I left the office on time today. That was pretty cool. And I'm not working on anything this evening. I'm worn out. I ran to the store for more potatoes. It's going to work out really well because I have entrees…

  • Seems like you just got there, Bisky! I am glad you had such a wonderful trip. How was the art museum? Nanc, that table looks very cozy and comfy. What type of treadmill do you have? If I decide to downsize I will have to get rid of my full-size treadmill. I go back and forth on what I want to do. I love my house but it's…

  • That buffet looks amazing, Bisky! Chuckled when I got to the last line of your post because I had already done a quick google of quark mid-read haha! I feel like I've heard of it but didn't know (or remember maybe) what it was. Another quick google turned up lots of recipes for vegan quark. Speaking of cravings, I grabbed…

  • Love the photos, Bisky, especially the huge smiles on your faces! Looks like you are having a wonderful time. Nanc, thanks for getting things started. I'm so impressed with you going strong with the WFPB life. Carla, do you do all meals from your wfpb place or just dinners? How are puppers and Joe doing? I am still buried…
