Usually, when I cook something, I don't follow a recipe or write down what I did, so every meal is a new experiment that way... I figured I would try to write down what I did this time just in case it turned out to be something I would make again. I think I got lucky with this one.

The candied hazelnuts in this salad are @speabody 's recipe for Sandy Hazelnuts. If you have an opportunity to try the recipe, you should. You won't be disappointed! I have rebellious compulsion to deviate from recipes, a tendency that makes me a failure at baked things. I found myself sprinkling a little sea salt at the end because I had plans for a savory recipe. (Hope you'll forgive me, Sam 😁)

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Morning Phetasy Phamily! My #SoberOctober ended today, many thanks all of you for the support and encouragement. While I didn't lose the 15 pounds I ideally hoped to lose, I came close at 13.5 with less exercise than I planned but better disciplined fasting & abstaining. 2 More days for those of you running until November the 1st! Happy Friday Phamily!

It was Einstein who said
Either nothing is a miracle,
Or everything is -
A jagged mountain range,
Lilacs in bloom,
A peacock unfurled,
Sun on your arm,
the touch of a stranger.

Take your pick: be surprised
By nothing at all,
Or by everything that is.
