For the past few days I've been happily indulging in some decadent cookies. The word "decadent" is actually in the name. Delicious treat for only 120 calories.
Upon further inspection of the nutritional label, they are actually 120 calories per HALF a cookie.

I finally cracked the code on how to cook beans (using dried beans). I just made some pinto beans and they're really good. I do an overnight soak *plus* the other method of bringing pot to a boil, turning the heat off and letting it sit for an hour. (Then stove back on and simmer.)
Black beans, I need to try again. I have a hard time with those.
White beans, like navy beans, are easy to get them soft. That's why when you buy canned white beans, they're all blown-out, i.e., too soft.

I bought a dozen eggs and I'm gonna try the Kenji Lopez-Alt method of making easy-to-peel boiled eggs.
You put the eggs into a pot / pan of already-boiling water (just about 1 inch of water).
He said that this works better than putting the eggs into cold water and then bringing everything (eggs and water) up to a boil at the same time.
I'll report back on how this works.

Kenji Lopez-Alt's egg-boiling method worked (eggs into water only after water starts to boil). Peeling eggs was easier. I cooked the eggs for 8 minutes, which is a little bit soft. If I had gone longer, they probably would have been even easier to peel.
I bought 3 Envy apples and those were an expensive disappointment. One was mealy and I threw it out. The other 2 were just OK.

I never remember to use the extra bucks on my CVS receipts. Today I went to CVS to buy mouthwash and a few other incidentals. At the cashier counter I, for once, remembered my rewards! However, upon reading the fine print, I see that the total purchase had to be more than $12 for the discount to apply. Sigh. Suddenly the darling cashier told me that my total was more than twelve dollars. (Everything is so expensive now due to inflation.) She took the receipt and entered it. It worked!
Then she frowned. There was a problem. Turns out one of my items was on sale and that nullifies the coupon. She was sad and apologized. I was a little disappointed since it would have meant I was getting one item totally free but then FREE can be whelming.

LOL, R142. You never wondered where your delivery was? Slightly related, a couple of weeks ago, I ordered Popeye's from Door Dash. My condo building has a main front door; I also have an attached garage. Usually, my DD is left at the front door; delivery person rings the buzzer to let me know my delivery has been made. The Popeye's Dasher left my food in front of my garage. At least he left me a pic cuz I would never have thought to look there.

My Thermapen food thermometer died. It led a good life, 7 years. If I recall correctly I paid $80 for it and well worth it.
In a moment of frugality, I replaced it with a $15 Thermopro. Normally $20 but I got it during an Amazon "flash" sale. Seems fine but definitely won't last 7 years. Larger, brighter read out and little magnets on the back to attach it to the fridge. I won't be attaching it to fridge as I don't like clutter of any sort. Everything must be in drawers or cabinets NOT on counters or dangling from appliances.

It is 33 degrees in Portland. I have a trial subscription to the online archive of the newspaper for my nearby hometown (which is sinister and horror movie-like in an entirely different way than Portland is). My best friend (a woman, who I refuse to call my hag) and I are writing a graphic novel involving retail-themed horror and cults and witchcraft in a one-stop shopping center (think the PNW Fred Meyer chain) across multiple timelines. Thus, I've spent my weekend going through scores upon scores of old ads and newspaper coverage of chain expansion and on-site tragedies and weirdness, as well as locating grainy photos of salesfloors in the 1970s and 80s. We worked there as teens in the 90s.
Working there was whelming. Researching the place for horror purposes: pleasantly underwhelming.

I just watched an early episode of "That Girl", a/k/a "That Cunt"...
Ann is meeting Donald's parents for the first time and entertaining them for Thanksgiving dinner, along with her parents and Donald, in her small-ish apartment (it's actually quite spacious but the decor is dingy and sort of Lebanese-ish)..
Ann is cooking both a turkey with sage stuffing (in her own kitchen) and a goose with oyster stuffing, in her neighbors kitchen - her kitchen is too small for both. But of course, she mixes up the stuffing - so she has turkey with oyster stuffing and goose with sage - oy vey...
Samantha Stephen's mother-in-law plays Donald's mother too

^ I've noticed that Marlo appears to have gone to the Lucille Ball School of Comedy
She mugs into the camera; she whines; she makes faces; she runs around frantically;
She doesn't shout her lines to the back of the theatre - but she rips off Lucy in every other way - even saying, "Oh Donald!" and "Oh Daddy!" in an impersonation of Lucy's "Oh Ricky!"
It seems Marlo's comedy training consisted of watching a bunch of ILL reruns with a note pad.

Instead of going to the grocery store I went to Panda Express tonight. Again.
They do a very brisk Door Dash business. More of them by far than in-store diners.

Sur La Table just alerted me that inventory of the duck fat I’ve had in my cart for two weeks is low. Folks are making good food for the holidays.
I’m currently binging on bacon grease. Adding duck fat would be whelming.

Lunch tomorrow is two pieces of Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon which I will bake in the oven with olive oil then squeeze lemon juice on it afterwards and dip the pieces in Champagne Dill Mustard- yum 😋
Part two of my lunch is a bowl of trail mix to which I'll add freeze dried bananas, blueberries and mangos. It's a somewhat decadent lunch, however I take a 4.2 mile walk in the morning and a 2 mile walk on the treadmill afterwards.

R586- I used one when I had a membership at my local Y but I don't have one at home. I should by one. I liked those. I have a stationary bicycle , a treadmill and a set of weights at home. My weights are the old style. I have to lie or lay ( not sure which word is appropriate) down and the bench flat and push the weight off the hooks- not the safer more modern attached kind.
Wait a minute. I never used a stairclimber at the Y it was an elliptical - which I liked.
