My scale is messin' with me

these mushrooms have a mild flavor, and fresh ones have a bit of a snap
when you bite into them. Before using, you should cut the base off the
bunch and discard it, then rinse the mushrooms. According to Wikipedia,
stores usually sell enokis that have been cultivated in bottles, so you
can often see the bottle imprint around the bottom of them. I've used
enoki in sushi because they are mild-tasting and very attractive, but I
think I will try chopping them up so that they mimic rice.
Life is cruel. I got on the scale this morning and I
was at 299.5! I ran and got my camera so I could record this magic
moment. When I got back on the scale: 300.5. ??? Got off and got back
on. 300.5. Picked up the scale and turned it in the other direction.
300.5. Adjusted the little dial to ensure it was exactly on 0. 300.5.
Used the telephoto on the camera so I could really see the number-
maybe it's my eyes. 300.5. I gave up.
But hey- I'm on Spring break! That makes everything better. I ate a
nice huge brunch (details below) and enjoyed each of the 46 grams of
fat it contained. Yum! I had 2 delicious cups of fresh orange juice
along with it. I used "juice oranges" I bought at Whole Foods last
night but was disappointed in the amount of juice they actually
yielded. Juice oranges indeed! Generally I can get close to 4 oz. of
juice from a medium sized orange, but not from these little misers.
Luckily, I bought a variety of oranges and tangerines. The biggest
orange I got netted me a full 8 - I was very impressed.
For dinner I made sushi and used chopped enoki mushrooms for rice.
It worked really well! A bag of these mushrooms costs 99 cents and I
used two bags for three rolls. Now, if I could only think of some tasty
ingredients to go in there besides scallions and avocados... my boredom
with my homemade sushi is the bland taste.
