Imagine if there was already a Nerd Fitness article on this...

9 time out of 10, there is a nerd fitness article, and its the first one that comes up when I google stuff.

 

That pin is AMAZING. I love a good chonk.  And cats in hats is glorious assonance.  Hope today went well for you!

ot in a 40 minute kettlebell workout while watching Parks & Rec, made some more ginger tea, AND did a little bit of yoga before bed.  I slept like a champ and am ready for MONDAY, well, I think, it's only 9am.........

Nice salvage!  Get it, girl!!

Wow amazing, how bloody COOL.... !!!!!!! Hope the mushrooms turn out good. (SPOILER - they will) xx

 

OMG......

Guys. I'm sorry but wow do I fuckin' HATE MUSHROOMS.

 

I did my best. I followed the recipe to a T. It was very easy and I'm a good cook and it came out perfect and pretty and the filling tasted amazing. I was PUMPED. But... mushrooms, WOW, they are ABSOLUTELY FOUL and are just, why would people eat these willingly, they must be a curse sent forth from the seven hells to plague humanity because literally one bite was all I could eat before my stomach started doing gentle "nononoNO" waves. 

 

The texture, it's like biting into one of those cheap foam flipflops you buy at the boardwalk for a buck but it's been left sitting in a bucket of salty water all day so it's like, bloated and soggy and just, pliable in an unsettling sort of way as it gently squeaks along the sides of your teeth as you chew it, why does it DO that.

 

The TASTE, there's no amount of cheese stuffed goodness I could have crammed in there - and I crammed a METRIC FUCKTON my friends - that can mask the delicate undertones of chewing on freshly tilled forest soil that honestly really aren't that heinous at first but the more you chew, the more that flavor bursts forth, like a sinister pop rock of fungal horror that just grows, and grows, and grows.........

 

So yeah. EPIC fail. I hate mushrooms. I think this is the one food that I've tried many times to embrace but each time just falls flatter than the first.  WOMP WOMP.

 

And that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. :]  HAPPY TUESDAAAAAAY~

I'm no fan of mushrooms, but my gf is and I noticed a HUUUUUGE difference once we switched to fresh, locally produced ones. Frozen/canned shrooms are just nope, while imported ones now taste to me exactly like you described. Also, I can't stress how much they need to be well done. Like, almost burned. Otherwise they still have that spongy chewey texture and soily taste.

Yes.

 

I love mushrooms and it's bringing me a rare variety of joy to see you describe with disgust some of the very things that I like about mushrooms. 😂I wouldn't describe it quite the same, because I like them, but I totally know what you're referring to in the texture, flavor, etc. This isn't a case of "wow that's not how I experience mushrooms at all" this is a case of "yeah, you don't like mushrooms."

 

Well done for giving them a good try anyway. 😄

I cooked with shiitake mushrooms once, which smelled and tasted like SHIIT(ake).  Can’t do any of them raw, omg that’s just gross.  But some nice button (generic white) shrooms, sautéed to death in butter & garlic?  That I can do.  We had dinner once and the hostess served portobello mushroom “burgers”.  Gag me with a spoon. 🤢🤮 No.  Just, no.  Give me the charred (or just well done😉) flesh of cow, please.

Okay. Good to know. As I said, BF and I both strongly dislike mushrooms. So my plan of attack if we ever happen upon them from a farm box or such will be to give it away to our friends who love them lol. 

 

Also your description of the experience? Absolutely stellar. 

 

But super kudos for giving them the chance at least !! Even if you didn't like them in the end, you at least tried.

Now I'm wondering what kind of mushrooms you used... Your description had me in stitches! 

 

"The texture, it's like biting into one of those cheap foam flipflops you buy at the boardwalk for a buck but it's been left sitting in a bucket of salty water all day so it's like, bloated and soggy and just, pliable in an unsettling sort of way as it gently squeaks along the sides of your teeth as you chew it, why does it DO that."

 

This reads like a classic yo.

I cannot tell you how happy this made me.  This is exactly how I feel about mushrooms but most of the people I know love them so I always thought I was just some weirdo who can't stand eating dirt flavored flip-flops.  So glad to know I am not alone.

I made these for my mom - who was ALREADY highly skeptical - and luckily I made baked potatoes alongside them because we were literally in stitches at dinner just saying "wow these fucking suck" and "this was an epic fail" over and over, it was the hardest I'd laughed in a LONG time, I really should vlog eating gnarly foods huh??

Yeah I totally chopped the rest up and left them outside for the animals.

 

Haha thank you!  I do sometimes lean into hyperbole-land but WOW they were BAD.  Capital b b b bad.

 

I'm glad I at least tried too!! I wanted to like them so bad, but.... here we are~

Good MEOWNING friends!  (ha ha see what i did there)

 

tenor.gif?itemid=16923999

 

I have had a really good week so far!  I've been in a good mindset and yesterday I did 60 minutes of kettlebells while watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off - a CLASSIC - so that was a huge win.  I've started having protein smoothies with fruit in the morning this week too, now that I can get my hands on fresh produce.  This morning was passionfruit, blackberry, banana, and blueberries!

 

As of right now my workplace is on the track to reopen on Monday with the state's Phase 1 guidelines and I'm actually looking forward to it.  Our in-office employees only number about 15 currently workspaces are spread out enough through the whole building that I'm not worried about myself or any of my coworkers, and our owners have been REGIMENTED about keeping customers -out-, deep cleaning the office, and putting walking flow arrows down on the floor to keep us in a pattern and not willy nilly all over the place. I'm grateful that out of all of our employees in and out in the field, no one has gotten sick! Everyone's really taking super care so I'm glad. ❤️

 

This was also an opportunity to buy myself a sweet new bento box online so I could pack my lunch in it and stay away from the microwave.  It arrives Saturday... :3

 

This weekend is going to be up in the 60s and 70s so I can't wait to get OUTSIDE!!!  ❤️ The sunshine and warmer weather are definitely a welcome change.

Glad you are doing well and sad that you can't enjoy the rich earthy taste that is good mushrooms well prepared. I can deal with those white button mushrooms, but I grew up where with family members that foraged their own mushrooms and I can't resist a good chantrelle or even better some morels... sautéed in butter with lots of pepper and salt... yum!

 

Bento box is a great idea! I have one and it makes me want to pack lunch because my lunch box is cool again... maybe even cooler than that Scooby-Doo lunch box I had as a kid.

ME TOO, they're slowly re-entering each employee back because some people have been gone for like 2 months, so since I'm fairly acclimated I go back Wednesday!  CAN'T WAIT

 

 

 

Hi all, happy weekend!

 

c828385ee545d25d24918e021f3a1873e7ac7de1

 

I guess I should maybe update on my goals a little, huh:

 

 

CLOUD STRIFE

Don't be a shithead.  I think I've done pretty well at this? I'm still dealing with some internal bitterness but I have a feeling a fair amount of that may be due to isolation and Life Lately.  It still sucks when after a long week I'd love to curl up on the couch with someone and read a book but I'll have to settle for reading on the deck alone, which honestly isn't a terrible fallback~

 

AERITH GAINSBOROUGH

I did get outside last weekend! This weekend aims to be BEAUTIFUL here too so I'm hoping to take another excursion as soon as this afternoon! It POURED here last night with sheets of heavy rain and big thunderstorms so it's a little cooler this morning than I would like (and cloudy), but the sun should show up for good soon.............

 

TIFA LOCKHART

I've done kettlebells for 60 minutes a piece twice this week!  AND yoga once!  AND I still have two days left of the week to go!! My Always Problematic Right Shoulder has been acting up a little so I'll need to be careful of that - with sports massage out of the question right now I'm definitely doing what I can at home, and maybe will throw a little mobility work into next week too.

 

BARRET WALLACE

Possibly a vlog will come this weekend.  Possibly when I'm outdoors, or POSSIBLY when I get my bento box. Or POSSIBLY MAYBE WE'LL SEE IDK

 

 

 

Also of note somehow I have been sleeping excellently well. I don't know why but HELL I'LL TAKE IT.
