^^ Afternoon snack! Greek yogurt, blueberries and Uncle Sam. I wasn’t totally hungry for this thanks to my big lunch, but it was 4:30 and dinner wasn’t till 7:30, so I knew I needed to have something in-between and wanted to eat before nausea hit!
Ironically, I felt a little sicker after eating the snack. 5:00 hour seems to be my worst time of day. But after we got to our dinner destination, things got better.
You can guess which glass was mine and which was Matt’s 🙁 I miss the days of downing many bottles with those two!
The walk to F+T’s is about 1.5 miles, and when we arrived I was parched and starving. Luckily they had a fabulous appetizer plate out with two of my current favorites: fruit + white cheddar!!
Dinner was ready in time – lasagna made with tofu and cottage cheese that was excellent plus coconutty asparagus and a Faith Salad.
If anyone can get me to eat salad right now, it’s Faith. She made chopped greens with avocado, almonds, raisins and sesame oil that was so good I had seconds!
I didn’t do as well with the asparagus tonight. So strange.
Faith is also queen of chocolate molded desserts. And by mold I don’t mean fungi! I mean she takes melted bittersweet baking chocolate and melts it with a little coconut oil and then adds toppings and hardens it back into homemade chocolate creations. Like these After Lunch Mints that are just incredible! [The ones that taste like Thin Mint cookies!]
I watched her in action make homemade coconut butter crumbles and sprinkle them over rich melted chocolate to make coconut bark.
Later on we had this plus peppermint “fudge” bites for dessert!!
The 1.5 mile walk home was brisk and chilly, but also nice for digestion. It’s funny how we live about the same distance as we used to from their house but in a totally different direction – and a much more fun one to walk!
Same closeness yet so far away…
See you on Saturday!
