Everything seems just so beautiful today- sun is shining, it is about 95 degrees, birds are singing, and my house is clean- well, almost. lol And to make things even more beautiful my house smells great. My husband told me how he misses my cooking, so I went to store and got him some pork ribs. I cut them to pieces , browned it, added salt pepper, lots and lots of garlic and onion and 2 cans of diced tomatoes( with Italian herbs) and now it has been slow cooking for 2 and half hours. House smells sooooo good I am about to start eating real meat again . lol Tofu has been my best friends past 2-3 weeks and my weight has been coming off. Before he arrives I will also make baked / pan fryed potatoes with green beans with bacon blue cheese dressing. And of course my favorite cabbage salad or cole slaw- whatever you like to call it. ( without the sugar or mayo). I just hope that I stay on track and don't start gaining after DH is home( that usually happens). But these ribs I am making are one of his absolute favorites. They have lots of flavor and meat just falls off the bone. Sometimes I use salsa instead of diced tomatoes and call them my salsa Ribs. :)
Then yesterday I really , really wanted to eat something carb loaded. First time in my life I made bread pudding. I Wanted something really sweet and cinnamony and good, so I corporated flan and bread and cinnamon and chocolate and the final product was awsome. House again smelled like christmas - cinnamony and delicious. :) It tasted GREAT and after 3 bites( I have 3 bite dessert rule now), I just threw the rest of the bread/flan pudding away. But it was creamy and dreamy :) Food exites me and it exites me even more when I try something new or make up my own recipes and it comes out even better that I expected.
Somthing exiting going on in your lives :) ?
