Sorry! Sorry! 100x's, Sorry!
Now, on to those updates (posts coppied from my tumblr blog):
Week One: Try a new fruit or vegetable you've never tried before: Because I don’t have enough on my plate as it is, I decided to join what seems like hundreds of other bloggers/tumblrs in . This week’s challenge was . I had a hard time finding one that I hadn’t tried and was a bit worried that I’d be a failure in the first week; when last night at dinner, a new veggie presented itself to me: cardoni (or as it more commonly called in Italy, “cardi”). Cardoni comes from the cardoon plant, and while it resembles a celery stalk in its appearance, it is actually a distant cousin of the artichoke family (and it definitely tastes like an artichoke).
I had cardoni as an appetizer, served deep-fried. Not at at all healthy, but all sorts of delicious! Apparently the preparation process is rather extensive, so it doesn’t look like cardi is going to make it on my “things to make at home” list; however, if given the chance, I’d definitely order/eat it again!
Week Two: Walk: As I said in a previous post regarding Molly’s goal for week two of The Matchstick Challenge; I don’t feel safe walking alone where I live. I would love to be able to live in a town that I feel comfortable walking to the gym, to work, or to the closest Starbucks; but sadly, I do not. To be quite honest, I live close enough to all three that the task is physically doable, but mentally, not so much. I get inside my head and convince myself that there is someone following me or a creeper in the bushes. That just takes the pleasure right out of the walk for me and I’d just rather not do it.
