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

Beef and Vegetables Over Rice Noodles

With the holidays and college starting I have FINALLY gotten a chance to post something.  A few things have changed, one being that I am on my official “getting older” medicine-prescription Nexium.  I have been advised to avoid anything spicy (not happy about that), citrus (Eh-can be ok with that) and tomatoes (hmmmm-thats going to… Continue reading Beef and Vegetables Over Rice Noodles

Pickled Garlic Deviled Eggs

Roasted Radish-Potato Omelette

I was so excited to find my Hatch Chile Powder in our mailbox.  It-smells-AWESOME and I can’t wait to try it.  My husband returned home yesterday with three gigantic zucchini given to him by a friend who requested that I make zucchini bread.  I am wondering if these squash are tough because of their size.  They… Continue reading Roasted Radish-Potato Omelette

Summer Salad With Spicy Thai Dressing

Today has been an outdoor kind of day-lots to do.  My squash had stopped producing so I went ahead and removed them.  I have a couple of new seedlings that will be ready to plant in the next week-hope they can survive this heat.  Spices are still blasting away and I have one (1) okra (what… Continue reading Summer Salad With Spicy Thai Dressing
