Today was strange day as since we got groceries last night I had to take care of veggies today.Got me out of sync. I am tired again today.I think I may need to take a couple extra potassium.
No 7-11 stories. He did have a chance to take a picture of hawk but he got out of his car first and then remembered camera. I had to remind him always grab camera first. But at least he is spotting stuff.The guy with him asked him how he saw it and he told him I had trained him.That I was always seeing stuff before him.
He is liking the Miss Julia book so i have plenty more of them for him.I have made a reader out of him.
I forgot to go over my daily goals for last week.
1.Exercise for 10 minutes This I did great at and most days did over 10
2.Lift hand weights for 2 reps of 12 This I slacked up on altho I do some lifting of hand weights with my exercises
3. Walk to bedroom and back often Also slacked on this some
4.Limit salt use This I am doing fantastic at
5.Stay in calorie range I am getting better at this but room for a lot of improvement. The night time is still messing me up
6. Use timer to eat slower when home I forgot a few times but use it most of the time
7. Huddle in all my teams I did miss a couple of days
So I still need a lot of improvement but I am working on it.
The finale of sister wives was on last night and altho I don't believe in polygamy I couldn't help but like the wives. Most men have enough problems trying to keep up with one wife. It takes a crazy man to have 4.
Ok i need to get supper in the oven. Hope you had a good day
Here is recipe for Dolmades for anyone that is interested.It is the one my sister gave me.
Fela or Dolmades
2 ½ # ground chuck
2 cans Delmonte Diced tomatoes (basil,garlic,oregano) chopped in food chopper
1 large onion (chopped in chopper)
1 cup uncooked white rice
4 teaspoons minced garlic( used minced garlic in jar)
4 teaspoons oregano
16oz jar of grape leaves.(Got Orlando California leaves from Acroplolis store inTarpon.) Need large leaves
2 ½ cans chicken broth.
Note Gently unwrap leaves and rinse.Cut off hard stem at end
Mix all ingredients at top.Then put about a tablespoon full in each leaf and roll up. Pack into pot.Leave at least 2” at top. Place a few leaves over all and place plate on top to hold fela in place.fill to top of leaves with chicken broth. Cover with lid and cook slow until tender. Aprox 2 or 3 hours.
I put mine in a crock pot on high. Cook until grape leaves are tender
I covered them in broth but I don’t think it needs that much.
Take them out of broth to serve
This made a lot.Too many for my crock pot.
This is a favorite Greek dish.It is like stuffed cabbage only grape leaves are used. It is an aquired taste,people either love them or not. I like them a lot.
