Better late, than never

Driving home from Sudbury, Ontario tonight, I thought to myself “is there anything at home that I can have for my lunch”.  Unfortunately, the answer was no.  I shop weekly so ensure that my salad ingredients are fresh and crisp.  That meant, when we arrived home at 8pm, after being away, that I dropped off my DH and off I went shopping.  But, two hours later, groceries purchased, puta away, cooked, chopped, diced and jarred.

Experimenting with flavour

I’m back!  Well, I wasn’t really gone, but I haven’t been “here”.  I’ve been busy making salads, trying out new things and generally enjoying the summer.  I made an entirely new salad yesterday and it was pretty good (see my suggestions to improve).  I tried it with my family last night at dinner (without meat) and I’ve got it in my lunch for today.  Do you like grilled vegetables?  I do and I figured I could turn that love into a salad and here’s how:

What do you do without a good camera on your phone?

I’ve told most people this story, but perhaps not everyone.  As I mentioned last week, I was in Punta Cana (see my resort review here) and while on an excursion, my phone (Samsung S6 Edge) sustained water damage.  I had forgotten it was tucked in my life vest and I jumped into the ocean to snorkel.  It did turn on after being bagged in rice and soaked in Isorpopyl alcohol.  But the battery started to expand.  I’m currently waiting on a battery replacement, so fingers crossed.

After a long weekend

Repost: February 19, 2016

I admit,  I was a bit worried when I got on the scale at tonight’s meeting.   I mean, it was a long weekend, we traveled, ate out and visited family (6 hrs away).  But at each lunch I would bring out a mason jar salad and at dinner … well, I  would give it a really good effort.   But come on, I discovered a new wine to add to my “big girl wine list”.  It’s called Moscato (thanks Lina).  Mmm.   And the chips and dip while we played cards every night.  *sigh*  I love chips.   Back to my weigh in, so here I was at WW, standing on the scale and I … lost.   1.5 lb.  Woot!
