Taxy, I made a fruit salad today too!

I used strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, pear, kiwi and grapes.

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

I tired myself out today, so DH asked if I wanted Chinese or pizza that man. We got pizza with pepperoni, roasted red peppers, extra sauce and extra cheese. So good! I figure with the peppers and cheese, we got two veggies in!

I actually did cook last night instead of working off the pile of dinners I had already made and frozen.

I just have to cook. I love cooking, but living alone and cooking just for myself, most times I cook, I end up with at least 3 more dinners from each dish I make.

Yesterday, I noticed those beautiful huge turkey neck pieces I had in the freezer, so I started a pot of baby limas using one of the turkey neck pieces for the delicious broth it makes and the nice amount of meat it provides.

When the meat and beans were all cooked, I took out the neck piece to cool, and took my potato masher to the beans to give it the yummy beany broth, then stripped off the neck meat and added it back to the pot. The last thing i did to finish off the dish was to add about a tablespoon of granulated chicken boullion for my salt. YUMMMMMmmmy.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

We wanted to eat early last night because Craig had to leave super early for a long drive north for a job. So, he stopped by our favorite Italian market and picked up some pre-made meatballs, came home, whipped up a tasty red sauce and cooked some bucatini.

He also grabbed a couple of cannoli and swan cream puffs. That's the bad thing about being much closer to the market than we used to be before we moved. Too convenient now and too tempting.

I had the last of the grilled chicken thighs and potato salad from the night before. Planned leftovers.

Rock and Joey - fabulous pics! They both look so good!
