Still problems with cron-o-meter which may be down to enforced prohibitation on downloads on this PC by my employer. Fair enough. :-(
Bummer though. I was hoping this might be the holy Grail of nutrient trackers. Could still be too US-centric for me though, even if I do manage to get the thing working.
Tonight I went to a wonderful "promenade" concert of various compositions by Tallis, in Wells Cathedral (Somerset). I had tears in my eyes within the first 30 seconds, and spent the next hour sitting quietly, with my back pressed against centuries old stonework, my hair over my face, eyes closed, just listening to the voices.
I can understand now how one can believe in angels. Such beauty, such peace. My eyes were closed; but my mind was flooded with light. And I am not, at all, religious.
Dinner plans went awry though. We couldn't find anywhere to eat in town, and so headed back to our village twenty miles away. I didn't eat until an hour or so ago (10pm), and by that time I had drunk one large glass of carmenere. Another with dinner. Which was "grilled" aubergine with hummus and salad. Too much oil on the "grilled". And I ate two of the potato wedges from my friends' plates.
Which I guess takes me from my 400 cal estimate of today's food to... well, well over 1000. And all my nice nutrients down the pan...
Oh well. I guess these things will happen on weekends. I should have stopped at one glass but I was so hungry; I needed *something*.
Anyway, I have a friend coming for dinner tomorrow and we will drink wine, as we have done for... many years. Less now; she will be driving long distance early and I am so trying to cut down. I am planning to do a salad with raw fennel, chicory, watercress, sliced pear, and small pieces of gorgonzola and walnuts, and maybe some soup if we still feel like it - my friend is digging up some jerusalem artichokes at the moment. You take those, and some onions and garlic, and ONE potato, and simmer and blend - and it is heaven, and very CR friendly. I also have some squash/tomato/chilli soup in the freezer, and loads of other veggies for something impromtu. I guess that will do, with some rye toast if necessary,. Fortunately she is veggie too.
Linking. I'm reading round blogs at the moment and if I could link to them on this page, that would be very cool. The usual bunch... From April to Mary and so on... Is this the way everyone did it? I assume the bunch is usual anyway... :-) But I won't do it without permission, so if I can link to you please leave a comment. Unlike Hilary, I think LJ is better for this kind of stuff than Blogger... but here we are on Blogger. And I hope there is no offence caused by me admitting to being a CR blog lurker.
