Is it Wednesday Already?

How did we get to the middle of the week and where am I?

I am horribly behind in getting outside and watering my seeds this am. I planted a bunch of wildflower and lavender seeds and well, they won't grow without some refreshments and since Mother Nature has decided NOT to give us rain these last few days, I need to get my act together and get out there.

In medical news, I am taking Diflucan thanks to "women's issues" aka yeast infection. Good times. I was also prescribed Macrobid for a possible bladder infection but after reading the side effects, I passed on getting it filled. Yeah, I need something lighter than this destroyer of all things functional. Cipro never gave me a problem, but this medicine's side effects read like a time bomb. Thanks FDA.

Doxycycline is making me crazy. Not because I am taking it, but because my dog is taking it and she is thirstier than ever and whinier than ever. Poor gal. She is doing much better since she has begun the drug for her Lyme Disease, but her incessant whining is making me a touch crazy. Ahhhh, God's humor is a bit mean sometimes.

Let's talk food shall we? The other day at Trader Joe's I decided on a complete whim to pick up yellow miso. I had seen it in a few recipes and figured that at some point I would be using it. I cooked with it last night and have no idea how I have not had this in my kitchen! The recipe I used was for miso roasted tofu. I did not make the kale salad  because I have no kale at this time. Instead I made brown ginger rice and steamed edamame and bok choy all in my rice cooker. Thanks to Marin Mama Cooks I am now a miso freak and I cannot wait to use it again. I even made a little extra dressing which was a heaping tablespoon of miso paste, half a lemon and some garlic powder to pour over rice and veggies. Ahhhh I love a good meal like that.

Today is gorgeous out and I will be taking the small one to the park and yes, I will water seeds before we go.
