Interesting week, weather-wise. On Tuesday evening we were able to sit outside enjoying a good dinner as the temperatures were Springlike. Seriously, we were in short sleeves the temperatures were so nice. We had the Thermacell on because of the mosquitoes so it was certainly warm enough for those blood suckers. Then today, Thursday, I am wearing a scarf and pea coat to ward off the cold damp temperatures. North Florida......it's hot, cold, cool, hot again in a 2 week span.
We planned a hearty meal for a cold night and decided to have Eggplant Parmesan, zucchini and homemade bread. Yup - lots of carbs but it's also all natural, homemade chow. I made enough for two dinners a lunch.
The lunch was meant to be eggplant sliders but I didn't' get to the grocery store for Hawaiian rolls. Those little things are so good. (Putting it on the list to look for a copycat recipe) We usually take our lunch as it's preferable to fighting lunch time crowds and also it's cost effective. Plus there are crazy holiday shoppers out there now and the traffic is maddening.
Our workplace break rooms are blissfully quiet and empty this time of year.
I have a few meals to share coming up, an update on books and a new acquisition, a Kindle Fire. There is definitely a learning curve when all you've used are Apple products for 4 years.
