I have eaten two pints of arctic zero ice cream in the past twenty four hours. I do not regret this decision on any level. I thoroughly enjoyed each bite (I put some PB on top which made it even better. Even better, it’s not sold in Arcata, so it cannot become a habit or a crutch. It will remain a SC treat, and I am so darn happy about it.
My mother has always been self employed. Ever since she moved to Mexico, she has been searching for a successful business idea that would both keep her busy and happy, while bringing in an income. She’s toyed with quite a few ideas, but yesterday she called me with the best idea yet. To do what she knows and what everyone has always told her to do. Reopen my grandma’s. My grandma started the first natural food restaurant/business in Santa Cruz, leading to the opening of the majority of the local natural food stores, ect. When my grandma got sick, my mom and aunt took over, but they eventually closed. My entire life I have heard stories of the restaurant, listened as friends and family beg my mom to cook their favorite menu item, past customers recall meeting my mom and meals they had, and everyone ask why she hasn’t reopened. Her normal response is that it is just too much work. It’s impossible. But now she is reconsidering and I couldn’t be more supportive. It would be a lot of effort, but it would be very rewarding.
Is it possible to make pancakes into french toast? It would be a french pancake.
Continuing from my earlier response: I do obsess over my body and it is healthy. There is nothing better than feeling your muscles contract when you move, hiking a steep trail and not being out of breath at the top, grabbing your own butt and realizing that you have an ass, or looking down and noticing that your arms have some kind of definition. It’s a pretty amazing confidence boost, in each aspect of my life, that my continued hard work and dedication actually product results. My body is a symbol of every choice I have made over the past year, and I like to ensure that it continues to represent good, smart, healthy choices.
