Broccoli coming out the ying yang...we've been doing a lot of catering for the school board in this area. Hot lunches for their work shops...today was the 5th lunch of the week for the same bunch of people, which was to be chicken divan..(I was running out of ideas). anyhoo....we got a freezing rain warning this morning and the day was cancelled. I had blanched broccoli and made a rice pilaf for 50... I used up some broccoli for the days soup at the deli(it's going to be cream of broccoli for at least two days) and I made up some frozen butter chicken dinners using the rice pilaf... I made a medditeranian rice salad for our deli counter, which turned out not half bad.. sold it all...good coin there....

so, to make a long story longer, I brought some of the stuff home and we are having the ol' chicken divan on rice pilaf for dinner....

Oh, tasso has a LOT more spice than regular bacon. It's got cayenne, paprika, onion and garlic powder, thyme, basil, salt, pepper, and honestly I don't remember what else. Plus, it's got the smoke flavor from being smoked. We use our homemade tasso.

TB had the last piece of steak, grilled with mushrooms and onions, a potato and the last of the greek salad.

I haven't had much of anything, but think I will make some mushroom soup out of what is left from his two steak dinners this week. I need to eat some veggies too but will probably just have another Glucerna. I am just not able to eat much at once. I will be so glad when this hernia is fixed. I am tentatively booked in for March 9 but there is a 50% chance I will be bumped to late April. Good news, I am losing weight.

Budget and diet. 2 for the price of 1 seasoned chix breast, $1.10 (convection broiled it), last night's steamed rice, 1 C. nuked, about 3 oz of lima beans (nuked with a bit of water, peppered), margarine, two glasses of wine.

It's the wine I'm complaining about. Two standard 6 oz bar glasses of wine, sentenced to the rest of my life with no time off for good behavior. To be honest I'm already sleeping better. I realize now that any more wine is unhealthy. Greg meets {smack!} reality. Drink delicious poison or sleep well. Pick one.

I almost went to the gym today... but didn't. Maybe tomorrow.

Decided ultimately on a Salmon Greek Salad with TJ's Pita Sea Salt Crackers,
very good!

I made for Pirate a dish he has been haunting me for years to make for him.

White sausage gravy over biscuits. A memory from his childhood. I had half a biscuit.

In my book "almost" on some days counts as "did!"
