Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

So much has been going on that I have neglected to post regularly.  This is my fourth day on my chemo pill (Ibrance) and so far so good.  Luckily I have had no side effects except for anxiety which is completely understandable.  With the meds it is necessary to drink at least 64 ounces of… Continue reading Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

Pig & Pickle Pasta Salad

With all the football games on yesterday I neglected to post this recipe from the day before.  OOPS!!  The Texans won so that made me happy.  I am not a huge football fan but gotta support my home team.  The dogs were watching us watch football-how sad are those little faces. It was soooo beautiful outside-it… Continue reading Pig & Pickle Pasta Salad

Purple Sweet Potato Salad

Another busy day in the bustling city of Houston.  How did I ever drive in this chaos?  In a little over five months the place is barely recognizable.  There are three new hospitals, apartments and new neighborhoods where there used to be thick forests.  Pretty sad if you ask me.  My best friend and I… Continue reading Purple Sweet Potato Salad

Warm Shrimp Pasta Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette

Today was a better day-went for my morning walk which made me feel a lot better.  The temperatures are cooler-hovering in the high eighties lately and lots of wind.   I managed to prepare a warm shrimp pasta salad for dinner which turned out perfect. Hopefully I will get back in the swing of things soon,… Continue reading Warm Shrimp Pasta Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette

Pork Schnitzel With Chipotle-Pea Pasta Salad

Maggie and I had a great walk this morning.  Of course she wants to chase the bunnies so my arm is being jerked left and right continuously (she spots them way before I do).  I think they know she is on a leash so most of them will continue eating or grooming, taunting her with… Continue reading Pork Schnitzel With Chipotle-Pea Pasta Salad
