I've been feeling pretty good lately, and my appetite is much better. Last night before I went to bed (about 11 pm) I decided on the spur of the moment I wanted a ham sandwich. Thought it might keep me from falling asleep, but it was delicious and I was soon in dreamland.
This morning I made blueberry muffins, this time with unbleached white flour (as opposed to unbleached white whole wheat flour). The texture of the muffins was much more to my liking, and I added just a bit more sugar as well. The recipe says to thaw the blueberries and drain well, but I just threw them into the batter right out of the freezer and the muffins were perfect. I made 9 muffins and now there are 4 left. Every time I walk into the kitchen and see them sitting there ...
I decided to try the fried avocado slices for my lunch. The instructions call for an unripe avocado, which is difficult to work with, at least to me. I finally got it cut and pried apart and the seed out. I sliced it but the difficult part was removing the peel, which is not so difficult with a ripe avocado. The results turned out pretty good, and may have been better if I'd had something to dip them into. I normally don't do dips so I enjoyed eating it just as is. I had some egg left over after dipping the slices, and fried and ate it as well. Will I do it again? I'm not sure as the prep time and effort is a lot for just one person, and I'm very much into EASY these days! I thank Nancy for the link, and would love to hear from any readers who have tried this recipe.
I didn't set out to write a food blog today but it looks like I have done it anyway. At nearly 2pm I'm still not dressed - this is becoming a habit. I will need to get ready for the gym this evening, so I may as well enjoy being lazy until then.
At 54 degrees with bright sunshine, the inside of my house is so cold I have my little heater on. It's not going to get much warmer today or the rest of the week, and it looks like we could have a couple of days of rain.
The attack on a man in southern CA by a mountain lion leaves me wondering about hiking and camping this summer. I normally tent in federal or state campgrounds, and I think a can of bear spray will definitely be among my supplies. I'm probably over-worried about it but it takes some of the fun out of planning some outings in the spring.
