Somewhere between there (the start of this blog) and here (today's date) I have gained 7 pounds. Hell! How did I let this happen? Lots of trial and error on loaves of bread and batches of unsuccessful brownies are surely to be the cause. The pants I bought last month are too snug on my ass and wrinkle when I walk down the hallway which makes me both embarrased and sad. I knew that I should have kept my fat pants but alas I did not, they were recently donated to Good will.
So! The solution is to eat healthier and get back to looking and feeling like a hottie. The following recipe comes from Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2006 and it is so so very good. I ate this all by my lonesome for lunch one day but it can easily be a snack or side for two. My son Domo thought that the cucumber was apple and until I told him the facts he wanted a bite so this will be made with apple in the future so he can eat some. He loves a good fruit salad and this is definitely one.
1 cups peaches (thawed if frozen, I used jarred from the refrigerator section)
1 cup thinly sliced seeded peeled cucumber
1 Tbs lemon juice
2 tsp honey
2 tsp minced fresh mint
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
Mix together peaches and cucumber. Drizzle with lemon juice and honey. Snip mint with kitchen shears on top. Fold in raspberries.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
