Back in the saddle

Well now I feel like I'm getting back to normal. I cooked a little last night. Thought I'd share my latest weight loss surgery friendly recipe experiment. It was really good and very low carb for those watching those. I served it with peas which went really well. A little salad might be a nice side with it but my battery had run low by then and frozen peas were all I could muster.

Plastic surgery kicks your butt lemme tell ya. For most of the day I feel like I was run over, backed up on and run over again. RNY was nothing like this. I feel a bit better each day but it really is baby steps.
