Alton Abe Emmy

Last night Abe made dinner (and took photos) for me.


This was Alton Brown’s recipe for Greek Chicken-Free Salad, from the latest Wired Magazine. He used “Chicken” from Beyond Meat


…and added cherry tomatoes.



Tres, tres delicious.

After the Emmy’s (was so pleased to see Janet’s headshot during the “Hosting Intervention” bit!) came Ben n Jerry’s Raspberry Fudge Chunk FroYo with a Tate’s Glten-Free Cookie.


Despite warnings from loved ones that it could do further damage, I booked a massage yesterday at Healing Hands because I couldn’t handle the idea of lying on a couch for another 24 hours straight. I go there pretty often for my monthly pamperings, but this was the first time going in with something to be “fixed.” A minor miracle occurred on that massage table, with Meredith and her (literal) healing hands. I had to hold myself back from skipping outa the place. This morning I’m still feeling pain, but it’s so much less intense than it has been since Friday.

I still don’t know for sure what caused the back spasm – the only thing I can think of is spending 1 hour in a robotic massage chair while I got my mani/pedi at Nail Garden – maybe all that auto rolling/vibrating put my spine outta whack???

    I feel for you. I few weeks ago I went to Disneyland on a Saturday. It was hot, a drank a margarita and not enough water. I rode a bunch of rough rides. The next day, I wake up normal and went about my morning routine. 2 hours after waking up, BANG! Back spams started. They got so bad (very 5 seconds) that I had to go to the ER. 2 hours later and THE strongest painkiller the ER had, I’m at home in bed for 2 days. But with no pain. Doctor said that I was dehydrated and sometimes that affects the muscles. Who knew? Hope you feel 100% today.

    SO happy to hear that your back is feeling a little better. Sometimes you just have to listen to your gut and do what you think is best.

    I’ve been so intrigued by those chicken-free strips- I’ll have to try them!
