Recent goodies:

     On Thursday, my boss brought in homemade Christmas cookies of sundry types, AND homemade fudge. My plans for a fasting day went right out the window!

     It was amusing that Midwinter's Day was the brightest day we've had around here in quite a while--the twilight before dawn was just lovely, as was the sunset. World didn't end, either. ;)

     I like to cook carrots to eat each weekend in the wintertime, but now I have a new craving, and that's for edamame! I get a bag of shelled edamame from Trader Joe's, use a simple recipe I found on the internet to bake it in the oven with some olive oil and parmesan cheese, and I'm enjoying it so much I want to have it every weekend. Always good to broaden my veggie options as well!

     Best of all, I'm not going into work this weekend--just spent a few hours today working from home, and what's left I can do Monday. Definitely a reprieve to savor!

I learn something new from your posting; I did know what edamame are.
What do they taste like?

Edamame are young soybeans, I get the shelled ones instead of ones in the pod. They look and vaguely taste like lima beans (but not as strong). Lots of great protein and fiber!
