Photo-A-Day #2096

Tonight Allison made an batch of Daniel M. Clark’s Best Damn Brussels Sprouts. As I attempt to get healthy I am exploring different foods that are better for me than others. I’m trying to eliminate extra carbs from potatoes, white rice and more. I’ve gotten into eating Quinoa as well. For a while I had been eating half sandwiches but I’m not using bread anymore in those sandwiches but instead wrapping some chicken or turkey in lettuce for my lunch. Eventually I’ll work on more variety in the lunches as well. I love how the Brussels sprouts and bacon looked, very colorful. The one thing that I’d say about it was that they were really hot, the red pepper flakes were absorbed into the broth. Other than that they were great!

Yesterday the home desktop went kahflooey and I had to boot it from the CD. So thank goodness I have some Seagate GoFlex drives. I’ve been automatically backing things up but I went and also made a manual backup of the contents of the computer. I’m thinking I should wipe the computer and see about formatting it to fix it. I’m not sure if it is a software or hardware issue but am not taking any chances. Glad I have those drives.

I’m headed to Affiliate summit on Saturday and on Saturday night Buy.at is having a party. At the party they will be featuring different cocktails and I submitted one. I call it BenSpark’s Pinkeye Punch. I would appreciate your vote in my favor. Please vote in the poll over on Facebook.

This is my own personal DSLR camera that I bought half of. My mother-In-Law bought the other half as an investment of great photos of her grandchildren. With over 26,000 photos of Eva and counting, I’d say she got great ROI on the investment. The opinions about them are 100% mine.

    I love, love brussel sprouts. But I think I offended someone at the grocery store when I was asking if they had them, then when she pointed them out I said, “Oh that price is way too high.” We went with zucchini instead.

    And if you want a substitute for rice, try “ricing” cauliflower. There are lots of directions on the internet on how to do it, but it is super easy and a great sub when you are doing a stir fry or something. I might try it when I make tacos, instead of the rice.
