This was last night's dinner. Soooo good. I served it with a sliced cucumber salad. These are super soft and would be perfect early on. Just dice the onions a little more finely and you should be good to go. In the beginning foods like this, my Ricotta Bake and Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole made me feel "normal" again. If you love Greek spanakopita it's like a cross between that and a lasagna filling. Yum
Lots of good stuff yesterday... It was much cooler. It was 110°F on Tuesday but we were under 100°F yesterday so heck yeah that's good stuff, I prefer 80's but anything under triple digits I'll take. I seriously was beginning to feel ill from the heat. I was good about water too but 110°F was just too much to take. How I did this with 150+ extra pounds on me is beyond comprehension, no wonder I was on 8 medications. The cooler weather let me get a bunch of things accomplished I had put off... gardening, cleaning, etc. I was knocking stuff of the to-do list at a record pace.
We had this delicious dinner and then watched Glee. Speaking of Glee, I received my Season 1 DVD set yesterday. Remember my Mum and I were extras in the balcony audience of Regionals (in the Season Finale) so if you have a copy... check out my Mum and I... best view at the 17.19 minute mark. Squeeee.
Then we got the news my nephew passed the bar exam on his first attempt so we officially have an attorney in the family. Always nice to have. So if I ever wig out and need an attorney I'll have a family discount ;) Towanda.
