Today, I baked: granola, marshmallow bars, spaghetti squash, and fresh chicken stock. Now, first, you have to understand that I don’t like marshmallow rice crispy bars: they’re sticky and so sweet they make my throat burn and a total inconvenience, especially because Kellogg’s ‘Rice Krispies’ are not gluten free (they contain barley malt) so I use Erewhon’s Crispy Brown Rice (Original) cereal, which is slightly healthier (right?) and just as delicious. Anyway, all of that being said, these Browned butter and sea salt marshmallow rice square…bar… things… are unbelievably, decadently (I would argue disturbingly) delicious.
I also did some research for my term paper, went to Costco, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and QFC to pick up various groceries, etc. Watched the first four episodes of Weeds, Season 5. My back is getting worse, I think; I’m stiff and kind of sore from my neck down to my hips, and my left hip pulses down to my knee, but my neck itself seems mostly ok… I don’t know. It’s worse than yesterday, and my chest is tight (like I’ve had the flu for a week or something heavy fell on my chest) it doesn’t make it hard to breathe, but it isn’t comfortable when the muscles stretch. Ugh.
