Bread Toss

15 Ways How to Eat More and Lose Weight
  1. Olive Oil Want to lose weight? Put olive oil on almost everything. It’s full of healthy monosaturated fat and it helps you burn calories. An Australian study found that women who ate just half an ounce of olive oil with breakfast enjoyed a metabolic boost. For the best results, eat the olive oil raw. Cooking the oil breaks down it’s beneficial properties – and it’s flavor. There are lots of great ways to eat it raw. Mix it with balsamic vinegar for a salad dressing or a delicious bread dip. Or, toss it in some pasta or drizzle it on a sandwich in place of mayo.
  2. Pears An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But a pear a day keeps the fat away. Pears are chock full of belly-filling fiber that keeps you from snacking throughout the day. There are lots of ways to eat pears. Add them to your oatmeal at breakfast. Pear and brie sandwiches are great for taking to work. Add some to your salad before dinner to keep you from overeating at night. However you can get them, they’ll do you good. A recent Brazilian study found that overweight women who ate three small pears a day lost more weight than women who skipped out on the fruit.
  3. Drink Caffeine Caffeine does more than keep you from falling asleep at work. It also gives your metabolic rate a boost every time you drink it. But be careful. Some forms of caffeine come with a lot of calories. Use skim milk and light sugar with each cup of coffee. Or try flavored tea with a little less sugar in each cup until you can drink it au natural. If natural sources of caffeine aren’t your thing, try diet coke. It’s delicious and it has no calories at all.

First impressions

Meeting Gale: ‘Stealing is punishable by death’ he reminds Katniss when she finds a rabbit in one of his snares. Interpretation: You might want to think twice about getting between me and my food. 

Meeting Peeta: Burns the bread and tosses it to Katniss. Interpretation: Here take this bread. I will gladly endure a beating from my mother if it will save your life.

For a girl who refers to hunger to describe some of her most intense experiences, these first encounters are pretty significant. Even if she couldn’t fully comprehend it at the time, Katniss knew where true satisfaction lay.

i used to stan so many kpop groups like real heavily but this summer i’ve been on a 24 hour exo lockdown i really dropped my other groups so fast to devote my life to exo’s comeback wow….

these ducks were birthing a family outside of cvs and every college student in the area wordlessly agreed to buy bread and gently toss it at them in celebration

Caesar and Joseph go to feed the ducks 

Anyway Caesar is by himself for a little bit and he’s happily tossing bread to this little group of ducks that have settled near the log he’s sitting on and then he hears faint screaming?

and it gets louder

and louder 

and the next thing he knows Joseph is vaulting over him and into the pond, still screaming and being chased by an entire gaggle of aggressive geese

“Court is one of the most talented writers in the fandom… Her stories have made me laugh, cry, and almost faint from how sexy they are.” -allhailthehutch

What is so unique or special about Everlark to you?

For me, Everlark is so unique/special because of the very subtle way that the author shows they are fated to be together from a very young age, and then they are able to overcome enormous obstacles and several devastating tragedies to have that love be affirmed. I knew from the second that I read the backstory to Everlark, him purposely burning the bread and tossing it to her, that they would be the side of the love triangle that endured, but it didn’t stop me from reading the last page of MJ to be sure that both lived. I think I would have thrown the book in a fire if Peeta hadn’t lived. I also love that while Katniss eventually comes to accept that she has noticed Peeta all along, it’s not some over-idealized “love at first sight” trope. She has bigger things to worry about than boys, and thus, the subtle way that Peeta insinuates himself into her heart makes their love stronger. She has to be ready to love him. And then, when she does, it’s with everything she can give him.

What inspired you to write Everlark fanfiction in the first place?

I think I’ve always written fanfiction. From the time I was 6 or 7 and was writing myself into the Babysitters Club (I just aged myself), I’ve always wanted to continue stories and worlds that have spoken to me. I’ve had some ups and downs with writing professors, and I’ve always been insecure about my writing. After one particularly nasty prof in grad school tore apart one of my original stories, I stopped writing for a long time. It wasn’t until I took a workshop where the speaker advised us writing teachers to write with our students that I started writing again. Bits and pieces, just character sketches or descriptive paragraphs of settings, but it was a start.

Funny enough, it’s a student who put The Hunger Games in my hands. I was hesitant, because another student had raved about Twilight and insisted I read it, and I was so underwhelmed by it that I could barely finish the first book. I never read the other three. So when this boy said, “You have to read this!” I replied, “Really? This better not be another Twilight.” By then, all three books were out, and so I didn’t have to wait. I devoured all three in three days. I still keep in touch with that student.

I sought out THG fanfiction and joined the fandom as a reader first. There were already scores of amazing stories out there, a lot of AU canon, and I made sure I reviewed everything I read. Some of those authors were nice enough to respond to me, and I opened dialogue with them. That was how I became a beta. And by being a beta, I was fortunate to have the support and encouragement of the first person I betaed for, iloverynmar, nudge me to work on some of my own fanfiction.

It took Everlark to really force me back on the writing bandwagon. They are the only ship that has truly called to me. Fanfiction exists because readers don’t want the story to end. I am always thinking about Everlark and the happy endings they deserve. Fanfiction is a place for me to safely explore my writing with familiar characters and take risks that I have been wary about taking in my original writing. Writing fanfiction has made me a better writer, and it’s renewed my confidence in myself, even if I still get anxiety every single time I hit the “post” button.

What’s your personal favorite of your own fics and why? What inspired it?

Fics are like children. It’s truly impossible for me to say I have a favorite. There are fics that have special meaning to me for different reasons. A lot of my one-shots have been written by request or as gifts for people, so seeing their reactions to these stories have made me happy. A Favorable Wind was my first story, and the response I received gave me the confidence to keep posting it and to keep writing. The novel that I based that story on has been a favorite of mine for years, and the parallels were too perfect for adapting it to Everlark. Most of my fic is inspired or based on other works, because I save my “original” plots for my original non fanfic work. I’ll use bits and pieces of plots from films, or song lyrics, to conjure up a story that works for Everlark, and then I put my own twist on it. Simple Gifts was the first post-MJ fic that I posted. Writing canon terrifies me, though I have many unpublished canon AUs and post-MJ fics languishing in my drive. Crash My Party has probably been the fic I’ve taken the most risks with, in a number of ways, and it will always be special to me for that.

What’s the greatest challenge for you to writing Everlark?

Doing Everlark justice and keeping them as close to character as possible. AU opens up a host of possibilities in experimenting, but I strive to make all my canon parallels work and make sure that no matter what element gets changed or adapted based on the AU, it’s still the Katniss and Peeta that we all love so dearly.

When you’re pushing the limits of character or situation, what ineffable traits of Katniss and Peeta/Everlark do you keep intact to preserve their characters?

For me, Everlark being soul mates is key. I also hold fast to the idea that toastbabies belong to only Katniss and Peeta, and I could never have them have children with anyone else. In regards to Katniss, her devotion to Prim is key, as is her tendency to take longer to let people in. With Peeta, it’s his selflessness and his kindness and his ability to charm people. Everyone loves Peeta.

What’s your favorite Everlark trope and why?

Um…I don’t really have one? LOL. I guess maybe confident, sexy Peeta. I love to read a wide variety of fic, and I love seeing people try new things in how they perceive Everlark. I do love the idea of Peeta being so excited to learn he’s going to be a father, and Katniss embracing the idea of being a mother when that moment comes.

What is an Everlark fanfic that has stayed with you? Why?

Well, Legend by HGRomance was the very first Everlark fanfic I read and reviewed, and it forged me a friendship with an author that I admired and also introduced me to many beloved Everlark fics by DustWriter and aimmyarrowshigh and monroeslittle.

Different Worlds by iloverynmar will always be special to me because it was in reading and reviewing that story that I got to know its author, and she had asked me to beta her next story, In My Head, In My Heart. That was the start of our friendship, and now, years later, hardly a day goes by that we don’t chat, and I know we will still be friends long after this fandom fades. I’m thankful for that gift.

There are too many other amazing stories and authors in this fandom to even begin to single them all out. I’ve been a beta for many of them. I’m fortunate enough to call so many talented writers friends. I’ve also tried to make sure that if I’ve read a story, I’ve reviewed it, or I’ve found a way to reach out to the author to tell them they’ve done a great job. It doesn’t take long to share kind words and they go so far in motivating an author.

What is your favorite Everlark headcanon or fanon?

Haha, I have so many of them. But we’ll keep it simple: that Everlark fuck like bunnies and can’t get enough of each other.

Court81981 is the author of works such as A Favorable Wind, Crash My Party, For the Crown, Going, Going, Gone, Highland Fling, One By One, and Winner Takes All. She is primarily on FF, but she is also on AO3.

How Beer Made from Leftover Bread Could Help End Global Food Waste

When’s the last time you picked up a pre-packaged sandwich and found it was made with the heel of the loaf? Never. So what do you think happens to all those thousands of unloved ends of bread, tossed into a skip every day by sandwich makers?

This was the question posed (far more eloquently) by food activist Tristram Stuart in his 2012 TED talk and, now, four years later, what lead him to create Toast Ale, the first British beer to be made with surplus bread from bakeries that would otherwise be sent to landfill.

It’s a simple enough concept—using bread in place of grains when brewing up beer—but Stuart thinks that it could begin a revolution in helping to combat food waste, especially with the profits of the beer going straight to his charity, which tackles this very problem.

(closed RP with shamelessneko)

It was a nice afternoon, the wind blew gently, carrying small clouds with it through the sky. The sun shined, no threat of rain to dampen the day. As a result, many people were in the park enjoying themselves. They all seemed to be doing something, wether it be running or riding bikes or flying kites. Everybody seemed to be active and doing something.

All but one,

A black cloaked figure sat upon a park bench. Behind this cloth sat a young man, his skin was deathly pale and his physic was thin, it was almost unnatural. Spiderlike hands held something in his hands, some bread crumbs. Birds flew by and landed upon the ground, eating the small bits of bread he tossed to the ground. The teenager was oblivious to his surroundings, he concentrated on simply throwing the bread and watching the birds.

For the past few episodes, Koenig has been doling out morsels of Adnan and Jay’s personalities like so many bread crumbs, tossing them every which way so as to throw us off the trail: He was the boy next door. No, he was a player. He was a thug. No, he loved animals and Rage Against the Machine. But she’s failed to do this with Hae, to the point that Hae still remains a cipher, a glass of flat soda, a formerly fizzy, dizzy beauty queen who’s now nothing but a beautiful dead girl known for only being both beautiful and dead.

We shouldn’t be too hard on Sarah Koenig, though, because she’s far from the first to fall into the trap of failing to adequately portray a female murder victim. The Beautiful Dead Girl is a long-standing trope, due to our culture’s morbid fascination with death and youth and female beauty, for as long as there’s been Beautiful Dead Girls for the media to be enamored with, from the Black Dahlia and Marilyn Monroe to Sylvia Plath and Princess Diana. Even HBO’s much-loved True Detective fell into this same trap.

These women usually have little in common, other than their skin color (perhaps unsurprisingly, the Beautiful Dead Girl is most often white), their pulchritude, and their lack of ability to convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. But they do share two defining traits: 1) Their lives usually end abruptly and violently and 2) We know far more about them after they died than we did when they were alive, in part because they are no longer around to contend the myths and misconceptions surrounding their all-too-brief, violent lives.

So Derek had arrived right on time and as you had expected his eyes zeroed in on the dinner table.

You had made his old favorite, shrimp alfredo, four cheese garlic bread, a toss salad and of course the wine.

‘How the hell are you single?’ is all he said as he walked toward the meal.

‘Wash your hands wolf boy.’ you said firmly.

‘Yes darling.’ Derek teased as he went to the sink.

He seemed so normal and relax, you almost wanted to just not bring up Kate at all, but you had to.

But, not right now, let the guy eat first.

You and Derek talked for a while, him asking about work, you asking about living life on the lamb. He confirms that the Mountain lion attack at the high school was in fact staged to cover up all the alpha kills.

Finally, actually quicker than anyone other than Derek could have managed, all the food was gone.

‘Satisfied?’ you teased.

‘Why? Do you have desert?’ Derek asked seriously.

‘You smiled as you stood up and pulled the cherry pie out of the oven where it was being kept warm.

‘That’s it, I’m gonna buy you a ring and marry you and your cooking. After I have a steamy affair with this pie.’ Derek said excitedly as you sat the pie in front of him.

‘Not the “American Pie” kind of affair I hope.’ you joked as you cut the pie and put a slice on a plate.

‘If we weren’t in your kitchen then maybe.’ Derek joked as well.

You sat down with the single slice and motioned to Derek that the rest was his to have.

You each ate in comfortable silence until finally Derek seemed to at last be full.

‘So I bumped into an old…someone at the store today?’ you said, deciding to get it over with.

‘Really?’ he asked casually.

‘It was Kate, she’s back in town.’

At that his face paled and the mood changed.

‘I know.’

You must have misheard that.

‘You know? The person we both know is responsible for the fire that changed everything is back in town and you just…know?’ you asked.

‘She…came by the old house, looking for information about the alpha.’ Derek responded.

‘She came by the house?! Derek what the fuck?! Why didn’t you tell me, hell why didn’t you tell me she was here in the first place?!’ you yelled angrily.

‘I didn’t want you to worry.’ he said meekly.

‘Didn’t want me to- Derek have you met me?! Worrying is what I do, it’s my thing?! I literally made a career out of it?!’ you shouted.

‘What else aren’t you telling me Derek?’ you asked.

‘… I’ve found the alpha, (Y/N).’ Derek said grimly.

‘What?!’ you shouted at the top of your lungs.

‘It’s Peter, he is the alpha (Y/N). That’s why I didn’t tell you.’

 You could only stare at him wide eyed.

‘Derek, this isn’t the time for one of your bad jokes. Peter is at the Hospital, like he has been for the last near decade.’ you said firmly.

‘Only, during your shifts. He smelled Laura and her alpha and it set him off, he got up, got her alone and…he went feral.’ Derek explained carefully.

‘You know too much for it to be tracking…he told you. Because you’re working with him aren’t you?’ you realized.

‘The killings, they aren’t random (Y/N). The video store worker, those two loafers, and the bus driver…they all helped Kate burn down our house and cover it up.’ Derek said as he stood and moved closer to you.

‘Where is he right now?’ you asked as you began to process all this new information.

‘The old house, we meet there.’

You stood up and grabbed your keys and headed to your car, Derek hot on your trail, just like the old days.

‘(Y/N) what are you gonna do?’ Derek asked.

You didn’t answer,  just sped up.

Once you were at the house you saw the door opened and with a deep breath you entered your old second home.

‘I see you brought a gue-’ Peter started to say but didn’t finish because you had slapped him hard enough to hurt your hand.

‘Hello to you too sugar plum.’ he snarked as he rubbed his quickly healing cheek.

‘Eight years!’ you screamed.

‘For eight years I sat at your bedside, taking photos for you, talking to you! Begging you to wake up and heal! I went to fucking medical school so that it would be my job to watch over you! And you wake up while I’m away and then run literally wild for months without ever coming to me!’ you shouted as tears poured from your eyes.

Peter looked at you with what you thought to be sad eyes.

‘(Y/N).’

‘I gave up my life for you Peter, and you do this. For years I wondered what I would do when you woke up, and what would happen between us. Would we just be friends, or maybe we’d realize we were meant to be. And I finally have my answer, we are…nothing.’ you sighed, almost in a delirious bliss.

‘(Y/N), just listen to me! I never wanted to break up, I was forced to! It was the punishment the pack gave me, I wanted to be at your side til the end. I still want that.’ Peter said as he took your hand.

‘No.’

So a bunch of oyster mushrooms bloomed. Today I harvested some for lunch. I never have time to cook decent lunch so here is my quickly receipt for oysters. I make them up in the toaster oven.

Toaster oven oyster mushrooms
3 or 4 cups of oyster mushrooms (see picture)
2 tbs of butter
2 egg whites
Seasoned bread crumbs (I think my wife puts garlic powder black pepper and dried parsley in them)
Old bay 1 to 2 tbs
And some flower to toss the mushrooms in.

Melt the butter and add 2 egg whites.
Add the old bay to the bread crumbs.

Toss mushrooms in flower, then the egg wash, then the bread crumbs. Bake gills up at 450 for 10 min., flip then 10 min. more or till golden brown.

They taste awesome, I do not dip them in anything. I think most dips make oyster mushrooms taste like fish, and if I wanted fish, I would go fishing. I make oysters in just butter all the time. They have a unique taste. I have been told that the foraged oysters taste different from the store bought. I have never bought them, but I can see that being true. The foraged ones seem to all taste different from each other, some stronger tasting and some very mild.
Happy hunting!
