You've got questions, I've got answers

I've had some questions from blog readers via email. I will address these questions here on the blog (anonymously of course... I wouldn't want to embarrass any of you by putting a name next to your stupid questions....haha I kid I kid).

1.) What is The Daily Scoop? It's just a blog written by a lady who is a lot smarter and more insightful than I am. I hesitate to give you her blog address for fear that you might read her blog over mine. Oh, who am I kidding? Click on Camille's picture on the left hand side to get the full story.

2.) How do I leave a comment? I love lists. They should have been on my favorite things list. So, here we go with a step by step list on leaving a comment. If you still can't figure it out after reading the step by step, consider yourself special (Ed), and continue to email me your comments. I'll take them either way =).

  • Scroll down to the end of the post you want to leave a comment on. Click on the words "3 comments." If you're the first person to leave a comment it will say "0 comments", if you're the 6th person to leave a comment it will say "5 comments." Basically any number with the word "comment" after it is where you should be clicking.
  • This should bring you to the comment page. Comments that have already been made are on the left side of the screen (feel free to read them, but I take no accountability for what is said there. I can't control EVERYONE....just some people). On the right side there is a big white empty box. This is where you type your comment.
  • When you're done ranting and raving, click on one of the options below the box. If you have a blog click on google/blogger. If you just want to put your name, click on Name/ don't have to put a URL, just your name will work. If you'd rather not identify yourself then click on anonymous.
  • Once you've chosen your option, click "publish your comment". That is it. You have officially posted a comment. I'm so proud of you!

3.) What is Edamame? A few people have asked me about this. It's a pod of deliciousness. They're fresh soy beans. Don't stop reading just because I said soy. They're really good! I was skeptical about these before I tried them, but now I'm in love. I even got Erin hooked on them. They look like peas in the pod. I prepare them by putting coarse sea salt in about a cup of water and heating it in the microwave for 2 minutes. Then I put the edamame in the microwave for 2.5 minutes, then pour the salt water over them. Stick the pod in your mouth, lick some of the salt off, push the beans out with your teeth and fingers, and are now experiencing the taste of edamame. Doesn't it sound great? You can also eat them without the salt. I obviously enjoy making healthy things as unhealthy as possible =)

That's all the answers I have. Anymore questions?

As always, a picture....just to show you how un-cool we really are.

Hard at work? (Dan is on the right)

You are so helpful to all of your "special" friends!! And funny! Do you have a Trader Joe's there? You can buy Edamame ready to eat there. It is fantastic and one of me and Owen's favorite snacks... although, they don't have salt on them. Hmmm... perhaps I'll have to start putting that in my car. You can probably also find it at Whole Foods.

I try to be as helpful as possible at all times, and in all things, and in all ok, that was SO lame, but I'm laughing anyway.
We don't have a trader joes here. I have heard a lot about them though and it sounds like a great store. I will google it and find the closest one so I can go there someday. Ready to eat sounds very convenient AND it's a good weight watcher treat. Double bonus!
I buy mine from costco frozen and eat the whole thing by myself =)
