Trader Joe’s yogurt

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

I have discovered ambrosia! My husband bought some yogurt at Trader Joe’s for me, and it’s this French Village cream line yogurt, full fat. The cream actually rises to the top, so you have to mix it before scooping some out.

The full fat is not good for me, but OH MY GOSH IT TASTES SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!! One cup is 170 calories, and I added half a cup of blueberries and a tablespoon or two of honey. It was FABULOUS! Move over, Dannon!!!!

I think I will try mixing it with chocolate. This stuff is so creamy and yummy, it would make wonderful frozen yogurt. Is full fat yogurt healthier for me than full fat ice cream? I think so, right?

I’m sure it’s better for me than a few chocolate chip cookies.

  1. I'm pretty sure that the fat doesn't count in yogurt, because it's yogurt and yogurt is good for you. At least, that's what I keep trying to tell myself... :-D

  2. I have to agree with April. I mean, you said you have to stir it up, and we all know that when you disturb something (like breaking a cookie apart, stiring yogurt, cutting a piece of cake/fudge/brownie/etc.) from its 'original' form, the calories leak out...

    Also, just wanted to let you know I FINALLY got a post on my writing blog that isn't a CFBA book review. I'm struggling with discipline in writing, and would appreciate any comments/suggestions you might have on the subject. Feel free to leave a comment on the blog (I'd love for others to as well, since I don't get many people visiting my writing blog).

  3. Try Trader Joe's Greek Style zero fat yogurt. No fat, but thick and rich like full fat yogurt. Yum!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

Ghetto Gongfu @mastersteas #mastersteas

Last year, I really got into brewing oolong teas, black teas, and Chinese green teas gongfu style. It’s a method where you use a little more tea leaves but steep for a very short time (usually only 15-25 seconds), and then each steeping after that is a few seconds longer. When doing such a short steep, the tea is not bitter at all. I like how each steeping of tea tastes just a little different, because the tea leaves will release certain compounds first and other compounds later. Also, you can usually steep it anywhere from 5 to 9 times, depending on the tea. You can use a tiny gaiwan teacup to brew tea just for yourself, or you can use a teapot. There are some teapots made specifically for gongfu brewing, although they tend to be very small, ranging from 200 mL to 300 mL (although there are some that are larger and smaller, of course). There are a few teas at MastersTeas.com that I really love, but which are very expensive since they’re very high quality. However, some of them

Regency titles in Lady Wynwood's Spies

I happened to read a review of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 1: Archer , and the reader mentioned being confused because characters switched between using first names and last names. I didn’t comment on the review (it’s my policy never to do so), but I thought it might be useful for my readers for me to mention why I have some characters referring to certain others by their first names or last names or titles. When I was researching British titles, many published historical authors recommended this article , which is one of a series of very informative articles on how the British refer to those with titles. The article writer mentions that especially in the Georgian/Regency/Victorian time period in England, people did not refer to each other by their first names unless they were childhood friends or close family, and even close family would often refer to a peer by his title name (or a nickname of his title name) rather than his first name (i.e., “Hart” for Lord Hartley).
