I got another stir fry lesson from my sister the other night. She said that her favorite vegetable to stir fry was broccoli because of the beautiful color. She washed the broccoli and cut it into medium size flowerets. She began to stir fry in plain olive oil. “Watch what happens,” she said. When the broccoli was done it was a bright, almost fluorescent green. “It happens every time,” she said. “It’s how I know when it’s done.”
I was at the store one day picking up a few things for dinner. I was really hungry, but I didn’t want to succumb to snack food. I looked around in the produce section and found a case of juices and smoothies. They all had lots of healthy ingredients – but most of them were also high calorie and laden with sugar. I looked at the label on a pom green tea. All of the ingredients were natural. There was no added sugar, it was sweetened only with pomegranate juice. It was pricey, but I bought it, and it was delicious. It took the edge off my hunger without spoiling my appetite for the meal.
My dad is slowly improving. He is getting along with the home health care worker we have hired. I should be able to go home soon.
