I had the honor of being included in a really neat project by two sisters (Pearl and Serene their site link) who have pretty terrific goals: to revolutionize eating. They asked for my involvement, and I was happy to let them tweak and feature my oopsie roll recipe and cauliflower crust recipe.
Pictured is the book cover (here is their book link) and then inside, the intro to the oopsie recipe itself. What they said about me is really pretty sweet.
I remember back when the Oopsie Rolls were new in 2008. It took about a year for them to catch on; in fact, I’d almost fully forgotten about them until people started talking about them again. Who knew a mistake in my kitchen would become so popular as a gluten-free bread alternative?
Say the authors, “Thanks and credit go to writer and humorist, Jamie VanEaton (“Cleochatra”) for these great rolls.”
Writer and humorist. I like that. I mean, no one’s funnier naked, though for all the wrong reasons. But I digress.

Now what I had yesterday… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you will have to watch slipping through the cushions of your couch.

You can also click the tab up top that says Mid-Year Resolution for the daily play-by-play and to see what I’m doing. Whee!
Wednesday, October 9
I ate this:
Lunch: Salad of Spinach + chopped salami + chopped pepperoni + grape tomatoes +onion + green peppers
Dinner: Sonic Tots and a footlong, bunless hot dog
Exercise: 3 hours at my treadmill desk at 1 mph.
Notes: Yay Wednesday. I love days when I feel I’m getting so much done. Unfortunately, my youngest is growing so fast, I need to whisk her out to buy a winter coat tonight! Brrr…
What I learned:
The freezer makes me happy.
In my quest for the perfect zucchini bread (you all know how finicky I am), I have a loaf in the freezer.
I dare not unearth it yet.
I am too too happy with my losses so far, and I’m not sure I want to introduce zucchini bread right now.
Thanks to the freezer, those foods I might eat in an entire day or two can remain in place, patiently awaiting the day I am in need of a little something wonderful without the effort.
The freezer is amazing for portions for cheesecakes, casseroles, and other foods, too. Thank you, freezer.
You’re so cold, but you warm my heart.
