Chihuly Dreams

This is your brain on 12-year-old small-batch Kentucky bourbon.

Make mine a double. Rocks.

Vacations are wonderful…

Healthy, Tasty, Breakfast, Shanghai

How I eat at a hotel buffet today. 3.5 oz of smoked turkey, 4 egg whites, and a rice cake after a bracing 35 minutes on the treadmill.

No idea what the day will bring, but at least I’m starting off with the carbs and fats under control.

Heat

I like my coffee hot.

To clarify, that is “hot” as in “hot food,” not “hot” as in “hot lava.”

K? Kthxbye.

Morning Hydration

Daily pre-noon intake (mostly liquid): Left to Right

Overnight oats with protein, blueberries, and unsweet almond milk; Black Rifle coffee (10oz) in Geek cup; English Breakfast Tea (32 oz); water (64 oz); water with BCAAs and electroylytes (32oz).

By noon, solid foods are looking REALLY good.

Perfect Timing

Look what showed up at my door right before I watched Biscuit Week from 2018 of the Great British Bake-Off.

There are no coincidences in the multiverse.

Fixed the Grill

After spending a day cleaning the range and a lump of cash having professional cleaning of the hood and can above it, and then setting off the smoke alarm ten dinners in a row, I decided that it was time to start cooking outside on the grill.

What bliss to be able to sear, brown, and burn food to my heart’s delight without fear of making the whole house smell like a barbecue joint for days afterwards.

Breakfast on porch after rainstorm

Lean New York steak, egg whites, homemade bread, Black Rifle Silencer Smooth coffee.

Sorry about the table – I was too hungry to clean it off before I ate, and since I’m the only one in the house who actually eats al fresco, this is on me.

Quick Start Monday

Working Breakfast

Philz Ambrosia coffee. 60g Bob’s Red Mill Marriott and Seed Muesli, 40g Dymatize gourmet chocolate whey protein isolate, 40g fresh blueberries mixed with 5 oz unsweetened almond milk.
