I want to tell everyone thank you for all the kind words you have posted. Everyone made Brandie feel so good! It is awesome to have blogging buddies.
We had the freakiest weather today. I know that most of you live where you have been buried in snow this winter, but here in southern California we live in very boring weather. We had an unusual storm hit us. Winds hit 35mph on the coast and up to 75mph in the mountains. Our family happens to live very close to the mountains so we get a little bit of variation in our weather. Well the winds were a blowing and we were in for a very blustery day. All of a sudden the Heavens opened up and the hail came down. It came down in buckets. By the time I thought to get the camera it started to melt, but I did get this shot. I know it doesn't look like much, but it is now documented that we had hail. :o)
Ok, enough weather news.
On to food.
Tuesdays and Thursdays I have pool therapy for my back and after therapy I am done for the day. I am sore, tired, and just wiped out. Dinner tends to be a struggle for me on these days.
So I put a big pot of brown rice on, which I cooked with No-Chicken broth . I steamed some green beans, a bag of frozen mixed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, and peppers), and some frozen green peas. I quickly made some falafel patties and fried them in my non-stick pan with a tsp of olive oil. It was a very good meal. I heated up some BBQ sauce to use as a dipping sauce for mine, which I loved and Brandie used some leftover Caulifredo sauce on hers. Dinner was a hit and I got to teach Brandie how to make falafel patties. Thanks to everyone for stopping by and I hope I didn't bore you with my less than fantastic weather report.
