Oh yeah, there was a game on yesterday. Makes me glad every time that I have a TV in the kitchen and can close doors between there and the living room

I made Kenji's recipe for lamb gyros and used mini naan breads like pitas. With homemade tzatziki for the sauce, they were delicious The avocado is not traditional, of course, but it needed to be eaten and it played well with the rest of the flavors.

GG, for me avocados, like mushrooms, are fair game no matter what the dish is. I put mushrooms in our burritos the other day and they were fabulous!

Your gyros look awesome!

Dang! I slept right through the whole game. But when I did wake up, Pirate had a small piece of steak and a baked tater ready for me. I managed to get all the steak down, but the tater was just a tad too much. So I ate only half of it.

It took a day or two, but I finally noticed that no matter what he cooked for me, there was always meat on my plate. Even if it is just four slices of bacon to go with the poached eggs. I make it a point to eat the meat first and then try to finish the rest.

Have you been poorly, Addie? (I haven't be on-line for a few weeks) I hope you're feeling better and that you had a good Christmas

Yes I have. And thank you for asking. I have three ulcers on one leg and one on the other. I went to see my arterial doctor and my BP was 195/63. Her first words to me were, "I can't recommend you for surgery with your BP that high. So she changed my medication for the problem. I get to see the surgeon tomorrow. Hopefully, he will have good news for me. And I have an appointment with another surgeon tomorrow. I am just hoping that the doctor can save my leg instead of amputating it. So far, it looks good.
