Hubby and daughter left last Wednesday on a trek down to Monterrey for the Moto-GP races. They put both their motorcycles in the trailer, hoping they would get a chance to ride on some of the beautiful roads in that area. They are scheduled to be back Monday night.
So, I’ve been by myself in the house, sort of. We hired someone to rebuild our deck. He started it last Wednesday, and has been here at the crack o’ dawn every morning. It’s been lots of pounding and sawing all day long. Luckily, being Sunday, he didn’t show up this morning and I got to sleep in a little bit. I’ve been trying to stay away during the daytime. The noise can be pretty disruptive.
What have I been eating while the cats have been away? Not as many beneficial choices as I hoped I would have. The first night I immediately sought out some fresh liver. Cooked up half with a huge Walla Walla onion. It was really tasty. If you recall, I’m not allowed to cook liver in the house. Hubby gags on the smell. That’s an appropriate reaction for an A blood type, I suppose. I had exactly the same meal the next night, with a little green salad. Then, Friday night I strayed a bit. I was invited out to a restaurant with ‘the girls’, as one of the women’s husband was performing with a blues band there. I chose to eat oysters. It was an avoid choice, but I rarely eat them. Were my eyes swollen the nest morning? Yes, Ma’m!! Last night I got in too late from golf to think if there was anything in the fridge to eat for dinner. I had already had eggs and spelt toast for brunch. I was tired and feeling lazy, so made a grilled cheddar cheese sandwich on spelt bread. The cheddar is avoid for this nonny, but there was no mozzarella. My lunches have all been the usual yogurt, cottage cheese or eggs. Rainier cherries have been the fruit of choice. I've eaten a few Unibars. (I'm trying to go slow on them until NAP gets some more in). Oh yeah, and I’ve been munching on a bag of Terra chips. The oil seems to be the only avoid in that. I haven’t had enough vegetables this weekend, that’s for sure. I think I’ll go for broke and hit the grocery for some more liver tonight. I don’t know when I’ll be able to indulge again. But will definitely go heavy on the greens. The body is craving them.
