Being Adventurous

i got adventurous tonight at dinner time. i tried salmon pasta bake. i never had salmon before. but i liked it. it tasted absolutely delicious.
i’m not a big fish eater. normally the only fish i eat is breaded fish, so this was a huge deal for me to even try it.
i’m glad i did, though.
i wasnt going to eat dessert but then when i found out it was orange chocolate cheese cake i couldnt resist.
and so now i am stuffed. stuffed and happy lol.

Recipe share. Chocolate truffles

Chocolate Truffles

1/4 cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur

6 ounces sweet chocolate, broken up

4 tablespoons sweet butter, softened

Unsweetened cocoa

Boil cream in small heavy pan until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Remove from heat. Stir in liqueur and chocolate. Return to low heat. Stir until chocolate melts. Whisk in softened butter. When mixture is smooth, pour into a shallow bowl. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Scoop chocolate up with a teaspoon. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll the truffle balls in the unsweetened cocoa. Use a cool working area. Store truffles, covered, in the refrigerator. Let truffles stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.


If you don’t mind using liqueur, there are many types of spirits you can use in this recipe for different flavors. In place of the Grand Marnier, try kahlua, Framboise, or Amaretto liqueurs.

Makes 20 truffles.

going to see karen o our nutritionist tomorrow morning

hi everyone
it is me emily
im 12 years old in case people dont know or forgot
and i have an eating disorder, bulimia
im worried tonight
we are going to see karen o our nutritionist in the morning
i really dont want to go
im scared we will be up and not have lost any weight
we have been struggling lately with our weight
we’re eating healthily but there seem to be no moving the weight
we tried exercising too but not a lot
i think thats the problem
its hard to breathe though but thats down to being so big too
i would love it if we could just keep losing
i am wondering why weight has to be such a struggle for some people
and for us
its frustrating to me
i’ve been trying to not binge or purge
and not count calories or restrict
i havent thrown up either lately
even when i have wanted to do it
so maybe that means i am making progress
i hope so
i dont know if i should try to talk to karen about it tomorrow
maybe i will
