So I've had cheese about once or twice a week now, since having the grilled cheese sandwich. Things seem better with cheese at least. I've been trying to limit my caffine, but I think I just cant get solid enough information to know what's actually going on.

Yesterday I ate pizza with cheese on it for the first time since May. In the past, I've never found pizza as filling as it's calories. Now, however, pizza is filling again. I wonder how being dairy free for 5 months changes things for me such that my hunger system is working better.

I am loving this coconut milk and avocado non-dairy ice cream base. I made mint chocolate chip today, and while it wasn't minty enough, it was still reasonably successful.

So I need to find some lavender leaves and try steeping the coconut milk in them.

I think a pistachio ice cream might go really excellently.

I should experiment with sherbets, since I haven't had one in forever because of HFCS and now that I have to make most frozen confections myself now, it might be a nice thing to try.

I got a combo blender/food processor, since my old blender was a dinky little guy.

I made some non-dairy Chocolate Coyote ice cream (chocolate, cinnamon, hint of cayenne) and it is by far the best non-dairy-trying-to-be-dairy thing I've eaten. It has an avocado, coconut milk base and the cinnamon does an excellent job of masking both flavors.

It might be time for me to invest in a real blender.

I bought IFC caramel latte, and I have to say I find it's "attempt" to make latte froth by fizzing when you put the hot water in a little disturbing. I'm not quite sure why, since I'll eat other things that fiz from chemical reactions with water, but maybe it's the fact that it's doing it to pretend to be a different process and it doesn't even do a good job, because foam from fizz is different from actual latte foam.

On another note, Meat Loaf is a food, but I think about taking the same substance and using a muffin pan to meak meat muffins, some how it's suddendly disgusting.

I was reading a webpage a small sampling of what thin people tend to eat. Many of them would have soup for lunch. I don't find soup at all satisfying. I wonder why it is that I don't.

"Air heads" are not a subsitution for "laffy taffy"

a follow up to this post. Apparently turkey hill natural has nice, simple ingredients and tastes really good. It tastes like I remembers bryers tasting a long time ago. I hadn't realized how much of the taste had been comprimised.

Bryers use to pride it self on being milk, cream, sugar and natural flavors... apparently that has changed. So sad.

It's my birthmonth!1 And there are exciting things planned. You've already heard about my present of a patapon and a psp to myself, as well as a psp skin, as soon as I decide which one. Also I'll be getting Crisis Core (the FF7 prequel) at the end of the month. I'm saving opening and trying patapon for tomorrow. I'm sure that after that I will be unable to shut up about it.

There will be a party, don't know what day yet. Hopefully those people who couldn't make the last one, but wanted to, can make this one. The cake will not be a lie.

I want to get fondue at some point, and not pay an arm and a leg for it (resturant recommendations are welcome, but I'm betting it will be part of the party and I'll be asking to borrow some fondue pots.)2

At the end of the month, we will finally be trying to buy the new car,3 so hopefully that will make me shut up about it, unless the test drive goes horrible or something and I have to pick a new favorite.

By the end of the month, I'll be 33!


1 For those that don't know. I don't tell people what day my birthday is, because there are some years I just don't want to make a big deal about it, and people are less like to wish you a happy birthmonth enmasse. Plus it's more fun this way! a whole 31 days to get the celebration in!

2 I want to borrow, rather than own, because I don't want to store the fondue pots afterwards. Else I'd get one of those nice self heating ones.

3 ZOMG!
