Ceramic on ceramic is not very forgiving.  Five of the dishes broke, two only dumped the contents among the mess of shards, and quiche, and one remained safe and sound.  But it all worked out, there were three left over, I gave them to a gentleman who has celiac disease, and he was so appreciative because they are gluten free. His wife asked me for the recipe.  

I think that when I do them again in such numbers, I will use foil cups.  

Next on the agenda  for the building is a Valentine's Day tea with food that goes totally against my idea of  sandwiches. I am making cucumber and watercress sandwiches.   Disgusting white bread with crusts cut off.  Give me a Reuben on great dark bread any time!

However, apparently other people like them.  It will be a learning experience for me.  We all need to step out of our comfort zone sometimes, right??

Sorry to hear the disaster happened in the kitchen Lore!
Luckily it all turned out ok!

The water cress sandwiches remind me, when brother and I would go across the street to visit Aunt Lena, and Mom and dad would play cards. They would take a break, and Lena would put out cold cuts and bread etc.
We would all sit to eat, and brother and I would make lettuce only sandwitches with mayo or mustard. Well the truth was, that the lunch meats were ham with all fat, or salami with chunks of fat. That was a turn off.

Lena would say,"Come On Kids, load some meat on those sandwiches!"
Sometimes, she would fork a few slices and try and shove that on our sandwich!" .... Mom would give us the eye's <!> <!> , and that was the clue to shut up, and eat it!" ......

In the future, brother and I would shudder when Mom would say,"We are going to Lena's Tonight to play cards!" .... Gr r r r r r r!....

I did buy a stool and the dang thing is useless.If I sit on it my knees are to close to the range.So I get up.Plus it is not on wheels and can not be pushed back..So I just sit down in a chair or sofa till I can get back up and stand.I have a friend who lost a leg and he use a wheelchair to get around the kitchen and he does all the cooking.???

I told Tina just the other day, that I wish I had a wheel chair. Just for when my knees are crippled or my back gets out of whack! ..... OMG..."She said,"No No no!!!..... Don't even think of it!" ......

I sit in a computer / office chair in the kitchen on one area Not in the way, and it has roller wheels on it, but it is too much pain to jerk around and using my feet to move around. It causes more pain than it's worth!!  Evil or Very Mad

I made tuna salad for our lunch.....had mine with lettuce leaves, like a wrap.

Dane & I make such different tuna salad. He mixes MW with the pouch of tuna....calls it tuna salad. I mix the 'individual' size pouch of tuna with 3 chopped celery stalks and 3 chopped hard cooked eggs and then add just enough MW to hold it together. Gotta have some salad in my tuna salad.

Oh, and I took a pic with my phone but didn't check to be sure it was there....and, of course, now that I've eaten, it's NOT in my phone. Murphy's Law.

Made a big bowl of potato salad to take to my sis, so snacking on that was my lunch.

It didn't surprise me that I was ready for a 'real' breakfast this morning considering the 'lightweight' supper I made last night.....and since I had planted the idea of eggs in my mind by mentioning I would probably use the leftover zucchini ends for a frittata,.......



I had sausage patties individually wrapped in the freezer so it was easy to thaw one out to break up and quickly fry, along with my usual carrots, onions & celery ~ as well as a bunch of chopped zucchini. Only used 2 eggs but it looks like so much more!

Dane is the one with the willpower. Not me. I have been hungry for hashbrowns for weeks and today was the day. OMG ~ I'm full and I'm satisfied.

I've never been any good at denying myself a favorite food for very long.

Jimmy's doing pretty good.
After breakfast this morning at 9:30, of three over easy eggs; two country white slices of toast, and a huge slice of home made vanilla cake, with butter cream icing, Just for kicks and giggles, at 12:30, I measured the blood sugar reading, and it was only 170 after all the food and sweet goodies I ate.....
Dr said,"as long as it doesn't go over 170, I am not to worry!"

The Dr. said they are pushing the diabetes more and more; so the drug companies can get richer.
That's all we see on the TV, is ads for drugs and injection pens for sugar control.
