@ D'zone ^^^ That was clever!

I am making Mark a chicken salad. I have the chicken marinating in oil, vinegar, herbs and garlic in the fridge.. I'll bake that in the oven.

I'm having something like a taco salad, but with ground turkey....and whatever else I can find. I was going to go to the store today, but got lazy and stayed home and did laundry and made breakfast.... didn't need any lunch after that.

Salad over here.. made some for us yesterday and there were carrots, peppers and mushrooms left, so I bought some more salad to make a new ;o)

Thanks, Cara. The doctor wants me to watch my diet for a little while and then we will check it again to see if I need to go on medication. I had some pretty serious symptoms a couple of weeks ago and have a family history of cholesterol and heart problems. It is all precautionary. If I am good during this trial period then I can ease up on the diet later. Also, my exercise is limited because of my leg right now. I have to go for walks and do certain exercises but there is a lot I can't do either, which is why the emphasis on diet. But I will win both these battles and come out healthy as a horse!

I ended up making a Greek salad, homemade rice pilaf in my rice cooker and Trader Joe's Burgundy wine & black pepper lamb tips - the lamb was really good!

We split a dove bar for dessert with some red wine.

Lazy today...went to Sam's Club and bought Bird's Eye Asian Stir Fry. Just made some rice and added some Chicken. If you haven' tried it, it's really good, quick and CHEAP! $6.88 and you get everything except the meat (and rice if you want rice) and it makes enough for 4 people to have 2 meals.
