Hello friends! Are you enjoying your late summer days?
Thought I'd share a few of the 'lazy' but delicious meals we've had lately...
Summer is the time to throw together fresh and easy, uncomplicated dinners and I love that!
On one day last week we enjoyed a tasty salmon salad, (I am not eating meat but I do eat fish).
When I put a good-sized blob of lemon mayo on my plate ..my hubby said 'Well , there's your calories..'
but I didnt' care. Now every time I open the mayonnaise, we say ' There's your calories, of course '...
what a funny old, middle-aged married couple thing.
But still yummy.
Canned tuna is SO useful.
I make french-bread pizzas sometimes. I spread some non-dairy marg. on the bare halves of bread and bake for ten minutes first to make them a bit more 'waterproof', then add on tomato passata (a little), veggies (lightly pre - sautee'd) plus cheese and re-bake. More calories...dastardly little critters!
I never used to think about the bloomin' things!
I suggested the doctor look him over, but Dad dug his toes in, naughty man! However when I phoned the next day he had made an appointment. That's the way it goes, you have to wait for suggestions to 'trickle down' ...v.e.r.y
Towards the end of my journey back, I truly got lost. Decided to cut off a corner between two trunk roads at right angles to one another, and found myself seeing rather a lot of rural Suffolk.
The thing is, I didn't really mind, as it was so lovely.
Then I started getting low on petrol (gas)..yes, I had a map but it was a maze of tiny lanes, not one of them marked at all. Eventually I found the road home, to my great relief, and filled up the tank in my home town. I'd added an hour to my travelling time!
During the 'lost' bit, I couldn't resist snapping the gorgeous golden fields...
...and dappled, shady lanes.
It really was beautiful.
The sign said 'Hen's eggs, brown or blue.' Well, I had to see those!
And buy some. I dropped my 70 pence in the slot, took them back to the car and gazed at them.
They were greeny-blue and olive-y shades, all different. So lovely.
Before September comes a-knocking, hubby and I are off to visit Guildford and Brighton and see our offspring again, then we have a weekend in the middle of England (Leicestershire ) with old college friends.
I'll be back before long! As we are leaving at crack of dawn tomorrow and won't, thereafter, be able to 'internet' much, I won't be able to publish any of your comments for about a week, but if you don't mind waiting, I will always love to read them when I return.
Looking forward to having fun and eating with friends and family, ignoring those sneaky, pesky calorie~critters...
I hereby give you permission to do the same ; )
