Ah Monday. There was no reason for me to wake up an hour earlier than usual, but I did. I decided to get to work on my sourdough english muffins – and they actually turned out good!
Take *that* Thomas’! I’ll post the recipe on Wednesday. It wasn’t all that hard.
I actually did not have a muffin for breakfast because I was too hungry to wait for the second dough rise, so I made up some pumpkin oats.
I also got a good early start on work today. I logged in to my favorite doctor’s files! His files are easy and I can do many more of his files in an hour than other doctors. Which = more $/hour. What a great way to start a Monday!
I was feeling like chicken salad for lunch, so that is what I made. With a chopped up apple and some toasted pecans. I don’t know how I managed it, but I was using one of those apple slicers that is supposed to core and neatly slice the apple and it still came out looking like this:
With core still in pieces. All chopped up it doesn’t matter, though.
This was good, but it made me cold Today was a chilly day.
Here are the directions for the little seed pots. I saw this post and knew I wanted to try it! Get an empty toilet paper roll (I have been saving them for a month or so). Squish it flat and press the crease.
Then open it back up and press the other side.
This will make it in a square shape. Now cut the tube in half. This will make the 2 pots.
Cut a slit up the side of all 4 creases, about 1/2 an inch or so.
Then fold the corners over just like you would close a box. I pinched the folds to make them lay flatter.
Voila- seed starter pot! Fill with soil and a seed
I am using a plastic tray to hold these (from my old peat pots). You can plant these right in the ground or a bigger pot if they need more time indoors.
The bonus? The empty pods also make a great cat toy, which I found out this morning when they were scattered on the floor.
At least she likes the cheap stuff.
I actually had this on the floor by Pixie to take her picture, but then she walked away.
I was looking forward to dinner to try one of my english muffins! I did my usual omelet (patent pending) with the english muffin on the side.
So good! I could eat 5 of these muffins toasted with butter and jam, but I won’t. I hope
Trainer riding tonight (HIIT, ugh) along with guitar practicing. I have my snack portioned out for later tonight.
Dried pineapple and mixed nuts. I really like this combo!
Hope you all had a fantastic Monday!
