No More Cable!

I took the plunge and cancelled my Charter cable subscription. I feel quite liberated!
Best of all, it will save me over $1500 a year, not taking into consideration how many brain cells I will save!

Thai-Style Vegetable Curry

Served this curry over forbidden rice. Did not use pressure cooker, just cooked until sweet potatoes were tender (perhaps a little too tender?) Wonderful!

Mexican Black Bean & Barley Soup with Cornbread

Made this soup last night and substituted kale for the collards, corn for the hominy and used 3 cups less stock. Cornbread came from this recipe. (as always, no need to use the oil.....)

Travelling Turtle

George was at the end of the driveway, continuously barking (not unusual). I happened to look over and saw this verylarge "something" in the street making its way across Dogwood Trail from the swamp side towards the sound. I grabbed my camera, praying my dying batteries would last a bit longer, threw on my flip-flops and was out the door - it was a very large turtle. She (assuming gender) turned towards me and crouched down and allowed me one photo before resuming her journey (and it was all my camera allowed too)

Plants & Pizza

Plants - tomatoes, radishes, eggplant, peppers, snow peas, zucchini, squashes, lettuce and cucumbers (can't see all in this pic)
Pizza - tofu sauce with rotel tomatoes, "pepperoni", onions, peppers & shitake mushrooms (wonderful as always!)

Asian Broccoli Salad & Three Bean and Artichoke Salad

Dinner last night was gardein™ chick'n tenders (which tasted so much like chicken that I pulled the packaging back out to re-read and make sure! Amazing - the best imitation chicken I've ever had) Asian Broccoli Salad and a Three Bean and Artichoke Salad - absolutely wonderful!
