Was having a bad day at work and texted JessFace saying I needed to drink and asked what she was up to. She was at the gym and then would be home to do some work, but I could come over whenever. And she said "Burgers for dinner." I never expect her to make me food of any kind though she's an amazeballs cook. Aside from being my friend, she made some awesome burgers via her new keto/low-carb recipes... and on cloud bread. DELISH! (I stole the pic from her Facebook since I was too busy noshing on mine to take a pic.) #foodie #friends #appreciation #love

HOTD 06JUNE2017
A friend at work - Erica R - has been off/on saying that I look like I've been losing weight. Part of me thinks she's being nice, and part of me kind of believes her. Another friend at work today - Pam G - made a point to say she thought I looked like I lost weight as well which surprised me since I still don't see it. I explained that it wasn't that I don't believe them, but I personally didn't notice a difference. But since I've changed my diet and have been eating better, I have felt better... so maybe that's it? In any case, their sweet words made me feel loved. (Thanks, ladies!) #happymaking #spreadlove

Mom sent me home with A LOT of rice (she bought too much and didn't have any space to store the extra and gave it away to me and my brother). So I tried my hand at making congee in my crockpot. My version was rice, chicken broth, a little vegetable oil, ginger, leftover shredded curry chicken (that I made), soy sauce, and sesame oil. Not too bad... though I wish I had a some Century Eggs.
