" Forgiveness means letting go of the hope of a better past"
Wow- that quote just grabs me. Thanks Elaine. I was told to pass it on. The best way for me is to blog it.
Yesterday was a Breakfast Day. Today I am sharing two recipes for lunch. Lunch is hard for the working person because it is so easy in the city to grab a quick on the go lunch. On every corner there is a deli with salad bar, the occasional Mickey Dee (McDonald's), or a side vendor. WRONG!!! First I wouldn't go to a salad bar where everyone is grabbing the food. You must think of that. I need not remind you of Mary Mallon. You do not know who she is? Mary Mallon, also known as Typhoid Mary or Bloody Mary seemed like a healthy woman when a health care inspector knocked on her door in 1907. She was the cause of several outbreaks of typhoid in this country. She was a private cook and worked for some of the richest residents of NYC and Westchester. She was the first known "healthy carrier" of typhoid. When finally caught up with she was banished to North Brother Island off New York.
Avoid food borne infections, please...
After breakfast , you might feel hungry 2 1/2 hours later. Grab a few nuts. A small handful would suffice. Then what should you have for lunch? In previous blog days there were generic choices. Check March blogs. Here are two more.
Recipe #1 LUNCH
Warm Romaine Salad
1 tablespoon of gluten free tamari sauce or Bragg Aminos
Pinch of stevia powder
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 medium cloves of garlic, peeled and minced. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes before adding to pan to allow the allium to work.
1 pound hearts of romaine lettuce , cut it cross wide into 1 inch pieces
Combine the soy sauce and stevia in a bowl. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat until hot. Add the minced garlic. Add olive oil next and stir together for 5 seconds. Add the lettuce and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes, until limp. Stir in the sauce and stir fry for 30 seconds. You want the lettuce bright green and tender. Remove and serve immediately. Yummy and different!!
Recipe #2 A STICK LUNCH
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but this dish will never harm me.
2 slices of turkey breast
Roll the lunch meat and slice into cylinders. Skewer meat with kebabs. Add black olives, and goat cheese between the meat. Add olive oil over the stick and eat away
It is simple.
The needlepoint above is a work in progress. It is taking longer than expected due to the beads I am sewing in. The flowers are done with two ply single thread in petit point. The background is French Wool in blue. I will eventually make it into a pillow.
I want to thank all those who are following.
