I had a nightmare

I woke up in a panic!  I dreamt that I was gorging myself on cup cakes.  I couldn't stop. Everyone around me was telling me to quit but I couldn't.  I ate the creamy top, the filled ones, the plain ones.... I couldn't stop. I couldn't stop.  

It's been a while since I've had a nightmare.  And I can't recall when I had one regarding food. Man oh man.  I guess that this has entered my subconscious and it's looking out for me.  

And I'm not really a big fan of cupcakes!  

I'm guessing you are noticing the new look of my blog.  My niece has been blogging for over a year.  Her blog is so cute that I wanted her to give me some tips.  She's extremely busy and sacrificed part of her 2 hours of alone time to help me.  

Thank you Sara!
Wednesdays are my long day.  
I need to plan both my lunch & my dinner.  Doesn't seem like a big deal but I have to remember to get it going in my store crock pot in time for me to eat by 5;30.  
I don't microwave anything.  I'm fortunate to have enough time to get things cooked the old fashioned way.  
I have fire spinning class tonight & afterwards I'm taking my first ZUMBA class.   Oh yeah... this fat chick's got rhythm babeeeee!
Millet recipe for the day
4 c veggie broth
1 c millet
1-4 garlic cloves
1-2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

Put all in pot & bring to boil.  Then let simmer until done.

Open up fridge & look in crisper.
Pull out veggies & slice/dice
Saute in olive oil until onions are clear.

When millet mixture is done add veggies to millet.

Now here's the hard part.  Let it sit for a day.  You know how some foods taste better the 2nd day?  Well this is one of them.

Form into patties & either bake or pan fry.  

Recipe update:
I made falafel's and they turned out fe-awful! 
They were wayyyy to moist and fell apart in the pan.  
They tasted ok but I'll need another go at it before I post the recipe.

12:12 pm
I was talking on the phone to my friend Gemini about the Fire Fest in July.  I'm the vendor coordinator.  My sister suggested I just take a picture of my phone but it just didn't happen.

Hey! i keep forgetting to read this (i need to transfer my blog feeds over to google.. :) but check it every few days.

- got our tickets!!!! also, we may be safeties for the philly fire conclave... some things about this year are too up in the air to commit the time to practices, or bail out on them last minute... we'll see.

- random's officially moved in <3 :D

- took a Hoop Path workshop in NYC (they are from North Carolina), amazing teachers, it was outstanding!

- went to DC. blogged about it.

- trying to cook more at home. but i am back to poultry/fish, though i'm quite picky about it, it makes it easier/healthier when on the road and stuff. Had a box of millet here for a long time - assume it's still ok to eat?

so i'll have to figure out something tonight, maybe with millet. have to use up tomatoes, bell pepper, mushrooms. have broccoli, tofu, or salmon steaks frozen.... hmmm.

snowy day at work, half the office is out, so you get a rambly long comment.

miss you! MWAH!

That millet recipe looks pretty tasty, think I'll have to try it.

You know, I have binge nightmares at times when I'm doing well with my eating and exercising. What the heck IS up with that? I hate it and am always so glad to wake up to find out it wasn't real.

Hey Katie!!
