The Heat is Off

Sacramento just saw 7 days of triple digit heat.  I got sick on day 5 and I betcha the heat was partially to blame.

Today, it felt great to pull back our heavy thermal drapes and let the sun shine in.  I don't know about you, but I NEED sunshine in my house.  Let there be light!  The cats are sitting in the windows...a breeze is coming in and all is right with the world once again.

I did not test my blood sugar at all last week but I did weigh and have lost 4 lbs.  I probably threw up most of what I, we didn't feel like cooking or eating.  Dave was recovering from knee surgery and is back to work today..but is on limited movement.

So, am happy to be feeling much better and am headed to my fave store to buy a few things that will be good for us to eat.

We are having friends over Sunday for lunch..and I will be attempting my version of Indian food.  I might "chicken out" though and make Vietnamese...maybe do an all veggie meal.

I love is my favorite.  I could live on it.  But..won't be good if it is 100 degrees out!  Maybe some lettuce wraps or rice paper spring rolls. Hmmmm.

I will be making a meyer lemon/mango/ginger sorbet...that is for sure.

Glad you're feeling better - not a nice way to lose weight but whatever works:) The sorbet sounds so cool and refreshing for summer. We're headed off to an outdoor country music concert in Lander - hope it's not too hot - taking my cowboy hat just in case.

yum on the sorbet!

I just saw a great Quinoa salad recipe on Simple Veganista which would be great for this hot weather. Lot of veggies, including avocado.
