Monday morning...uh, yeah, Monday morning. Another week, another day, another low cal meal! It's day-in-day-out of the same-o, same-o for me right now. But, I am feeling good and we are going to continue the diet or food lifestyle that we have adopted as of late. Granted this weekend we did indulge a few blue corn chips and a bowl of fresh strawberries and homemade ice cream but you have to live. Last night for dinner I had three leftover ears of white corn from the weekend festivities and I decided to cut them off the ear and make a kind of corn tomato salsa to go with our grilled chicken. We attended our 4 year old great-nephews little birthday party yesterday and went away with a sack full of fresh red tomatoes and jalapenos from their backyard so the idea popped into my head. I cut the corn off, added chopped tomatoes and jalapeno, lemon juice (would prefer lime but did not have) and red onion. Let it marinate a few hour and YUMMY! Tonight we will have it over grilled tilapia. Oh, and I picked, from my tiny garden, two zucchini and tons more cucumbers. We ate the zucchini last night, but tonight will be cucumbers and onion in a little brine! YUMMY, I so love summer veggies for the table. I am hoping this afternoon to head out to the "gardens" in Bixby for purple hull peas, and hope my Daddy will shell them for me. He loves to do that and I will oblige him the job, thank you!
Hope all have a good day!
