SoCS 2019.10.05 – Healthy Taste

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-tast-.” Find a word that contains “tast” and use it in your post. Enjoy!Linda G. Hill

For health reason, Hubby and I are on a low carbohydrate but tasty, healthy and balanced diet. When he retired in 2016, he said, “You have been cooking for me for twenty years. From now on, I’ll do all the cooking.” He has kept his words literally. We eat two meals a day. He makes a tasty and colorful brunch with eggs, fruit and vegetable. For dinner, he makes tasty salmon and different vegetables. Once in a while, he makes thin crust pizza and continues to improve on his secret recipe. Two or three times a year, we have barbecues with lean meat.

For dining out, I usually have seafood and he has steak. Basically, we stay away from fat and starchy food.

First BBQ in 18 Months

We used to have barbecue often with my husband’s best friend Randy. He died of mountain bike accident eighteen months ago. After Randy passed away, my husband seemed to lose interest in having a barbecue. I’m not sure if he was not motivated to do it because Randy was not around anymore, or if we do, it would bring back the memory of him.

Anyway, we had an enjoyable barbecue on a quiet Sunday night. It was done as a celebration and a reward for doing our home improvement. We did house painting in the previous week but took last week off. It felt good going to the gym for four days and watched movies at night.

I could only eat 2 ounces. Lynton didn’t mind finish the rest of the steak

We will resume the house painting tomorrow (Monday) with enthusiasm and energy.
