My youngest daughter is home from college, and all of a sudden she’s become Rachel Ray Jr. As a child only very, very moderately interested in cooking she suddenly is making these amazing meals once or twice a day. We are eating like kings!
This, of course, makes one wonder if this is going to have a less-than-desired effect on the waistline. What seems to be happening instead is that what she’s cooking is so good that it fills me up and I’m not so busy grazing between meals. I’ve always thought that if I could just NOT snack my body would look a whole lot different, but when you grab a tiny lunch, by 3:00 your stomach is begging for more. With these amazing, complete meals, I’m totally satisfied until 5 or 6 hours later. It’s great!
Right now it’s 1:50 PM, and Natasha’s busy in the kitchen. She’s making lunch. (Okay, one downfall on having a college kid cook your meals—you can toss any kind of a traditional schedule out the window). It smells spicy and grilly and YUMMY. I wish she’d hurry up… wow—my wishes are powerful! Just as I was writing that she brought me in a beautiful pita sandwich stuffed with grilled beef and peppers and onions. Delish !
Okay, ENOUGH about food! I’m hoping this storm that’s threatening will pass soon, so I can go out for a little ride. I’ve been so busy with work lately that I barely look up from my desk. I’m trying to make a concerted effort to get a ride in once a day. It will help when my husband gets home (he’s been away spending a couple of weeks with his mother)—he loves to be outside and will request bike rides regularly, so I can’t get so caught up with builders and financials and answering customers’ questions and fulfilling orders that I forget why I’m doing this—cause I love to bike!
All those reasons I just listed are also why I’ve been forgetting to blog. Another thing to put on my list of to- dos. I’m off to tackle a new project.
