So it was Dave's birthday and we had steak, sweet potatoes, pan grilled zucchini and poblano peppers and corn. For a birthday cake, I bought Dave a cheesecake sampler. His fave. But I forgot to mention the wine. In June Dave's sister Carol and her husband Dan had left us with a wonderful bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from Spain, 14 % alcohol...um, I haven't had any wine since June, and 8 ounces later and I was tucked into my bed at about 3 in the afternoon. Slept all night there and woke up at 5:30 to feed the hungry dogs. Some birthday.
I watched this documentary Fat Sick and Nearly Dead on Netflix and was convinced that we need to start eating more veggies and fruit and by we, I mean DAVE! He watched it too and said he would go along with me on this eating healthier path. So I ordered a juice extractor, because this way he can drink his veggies and get off the starch and sugar diet he lives on currently.
We got this Cuisinart and it arrived five days early so we will start today. Lots of recipes are available online and I am off to the store to buy stuff I never used to buy. Woowoo!
