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

Fresh Guacamole-Radish Tacos

This is my third day of walking “the hill” on our street and I am fortunate to have Maggie pulling me a little because it is a steep grade.  I figure that walking it over and over is much better than walking on a flat road.  She was waiting for me this morning but I… Continue reading Fresh Guacamole-Radish Tacos

Salmon-Orzo-Pico Stack

  ‘I can do it’ is what I had to keep telling myself when I realized that the part we had just replaced on our mower needed to be replaced AGAIN. It was a pain in the rear the first time but being that I paid attention it was relatively easy the second time. My… Continue reading Salmon-Orzo-Pico Stack

Sriracha Egg Over Masa Cake
