A Little Recipe For Ya

General attitude: whatever
Weight loss: I refuse to get on a scale.

I have a bit of a recipe I want to throw out into the world.....I have never made this but I am going to.....just got it from my b-in-l...and he said it is delicious and I tend to trust his judgement...somewhat.

I need a name for it...I am sure it has one but he didn't give me that sooooo...
I guess I will give the recipe and then name it whatever pops into my little brain, and I do mean little.

Fresh tuna (1 inch cubes)
roasted sesame seeds
soy sauce
green onions
olive oil

Toss all ingredients together and put into the fridge overnight.....the chemicals in this combo somehow "cook" the tuna. Serve however you like....he did not tell me how to serve it but I bet it wold be good in those rice paper rolls that Josette and I love....or even in a lettuce wrap with the cellophane noodle thingys......oooh or on a salad with a spicy asian dressing......mmmm now I am hungry again.

Long time coming

Ok so, I have been a slacker in the blogging world. Sorry. You can......well I better not say that or else you will get the wrong idea about me. Snort.

So I started the new year off with a trip. Something I have not done in ten years. The last time I was away from home on New Year's was 2001, and I was on the other side of the world in Hong Kong. I had a wonderful time with friends in Banner Elk, NC, but I really think I like having a party at my house better....since it seems to be the only thing I do there anymore. Ah well....I will make that decision next Christmas.

Now on to resolutions.

My cousin, Josette & I have started this blog to help us be accountable to each other so that we will force ourselves to lose weight. Well that, and to journal our favorite travels we take together. We love, love, love to road trip, and we don't do it often enough.

Collectively we weigh somewhere around 800 pounds. Ok. Not really, but I feel better about myself when I grossly exaggerate. We have both struggled with our weight for as long as I can remember and now we are in phase 1 of the 12 step program. We realize that we are addicted to food. We cannot control this addiction by ourselves. We need help. Well, we knew that already, but now we are going for it. So..

Resolution #1: Lose weight. I know. It's the universal resolution...but dangit, I mean it this time.

Resolution #2: Have weight loss, will travel. Josette and I have made this promise..that if we lose a certain amount of weight by a certain date we will certainly buy the other certain person a certain ticket to a certain place where we will certainly enjoy ourselves.

Resolution #3: I will read the entire series of Anne of Green Gables again, in between bouts of vigorous exercise that is. I loved this series growing up and I have not read them in many years, but I will, oh yes, I will.

Resolution #4: I will learn a new craft. I love crafts. I love painting and knitting and creating things....therefore I will learn a new craft...not sure what yet....but I will.

Resolution #5: I will....well.....I don't know what this one is yet but....I'll do it.

Resolution #6: I will not procrastinate. Procrastination is the reason the resolutions have not made it to the blog I am stopping now.

There....that should do it for now. I do hope you are having a great year so far and are as excited as the next 355 days as I am.....TTFN
