Live Real. Eat Real.

One of Those Days

Hi, y’all.  I’m late today because, well, I basically killed my laptop last night.  I was ranting and gesticulating rather wildly after watching Farmageddon (which is important, so remember that) when I knocked over a glass on the table next to my laptop and doused it in fruity vodka liquid.

Its death was immediate.

So I’m on my old laptop, which is ancient in computer years and slower than molasses in January, until my new laptop arrives tomorrow (one of the perks of working in the hardware/software business: you can expedite stuff like that).  Of course, my recipe software is not on this laptop, the version of Photoshop is 2 revisions behind, and I can’t get Quickbooks to install on it at all.  Then, to add insult to injury, the memory card in my camera decided to die, as well, so I can’t even pull down the image of the marvelous liver dish I made the other night and post the recipe for it.

I’m just having more fun than the law should allow today.

Anyhoo, it’s Day 11 of the Paleo Iron Chef competition.  The not-so-secret ingredient is Almonds, and as soon as they put up the post for it, I’ll be submitting my Apple Bacon Upside-Down Cake recipe, since one of the main ingredients is almond flour.  (I was going to post a recipe for Zucchini Muffins, but those photos are on the bum memory card, too.)  Am I doing well, you ask?  Not really; the voting is very subjective and entries can be downvoted as well as upvoted.  *shrugs*  I’m going to finish out the competition, since I committed myself to it; besides, it’s accomplishing what I wanted – ideas for recipes and exposure in a venue where I’d had little until now.  It’s all good.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a little unplanned surprise, so I’ll see you then.  Have a lovely day, everyone.
