Oh wow. Are y’all getting it really bad again? You’re in Canada right?
So you’re saying if you fly down here you will get stuck here...cooking awesome meals and hanging out?! Sounds worth it!!Come on down!! Lol I’m kidding. That does stink y’all are on lock down. Are you able to work from home?
San Antonio isn’t too far from H-town (Houston). San Antonio is beautiful too.

Yes, I have a special spot in my heart for San Antonio and that riverwalk 😍. Though I also remember getting lost and driving round and round that circle highway of theirs, which was frustrating, lolololzzzz.

I was working from home (when I was working), though practically everybody I know personally in my area has been working from home for over a year...except for the couple educators and medical professionals I know. Though starting today my teacher pals will also be working from home (they hate doing online teaching!)

Covid Sucks!!!!!!!!

What are these monsters?!?!? I only eat Oreo Thicks 😝

LOL...yeah the fam thinks these are aberrations as well. They prefer the Double-Stuff version. I like these cuz they are cute (plus I'm more into the cookie than the filling anyway).

My attempt at sushi sans actual fish. I had some extra tobiko from yesterday and a package of imitation crab I forgot to use so...

Also roasted some pork belly that was served to the fam with sushi rice and an onion-garlic-vinegar-soy dipping sauce.

My plate is never as pretty as the actual spread. Sigh. 307 calories, plus 1/2 a teacup of yuzu sake (+109 calories) Ate/drank it all. There is some fab blue cheese dip in the fridge that I can hear calling my name...will likely have some with some carrots shortly so may as well log it now (+92 calories)

So I guess that's 508 calories total.

Hey ladies,

I mean no offense here. Afterall, I'm a very happily married man going on 40 years this year. But, I do want to say, if you don't mind, that some of you gals are really looking very, very, very good in those pictures, so be careful out there. There are many bad boys around who when they see the new you may be tempted to go a little nuts, if you know what I'm saying. Not me. Just take it from a red blooded old man that you are looking unbelievable!

Sushi just isn’t the same to go. Had to go out and satisfy the craving 😋

I am somewhat sad to say, I did not have sushi recently. Everyone’s sushi looks so good😍😍😍😍

Dinner—smoke salmon with salad. Hubby took care of the last few bites of salmon

Dessert—berry ricotta cake. I had a huge slice and ate the whole piece. About 1/8 of the cake. So yum! 😋😋😋😋😋😋

Did you bake this yourself? I am going to assume so as store bought yumminess is nornally never this loaded with the good stuff!! #sooooooooYum

Its funny how we think 1/8 of a cake is a “huge” slice, when in fact its a regular serving. I remember having like double, triple that amount and going back for more later.

Cant wait until berries are in season over here. While i could buy them in grocery now, they are awfully tiny.

Recipe???

Made lasagna last night but I used store bought packaged dry noodles.

Since I popped my Pasta cherry last week with no adverse effects, figured I’d have some.

Pretty good, but I think I’ll just stick to eating homemade pasta noodles. I found the store bought ones on the thick side. They ate up most of it...there’s about 1/3 of a tray left.

Ate about 1/2 cup-ish : guessing 200 calories:

Yes, I baked this myself. I am not a baker, but we have two other couples we do rotating dinner parties with, and we are hosting in May. I need to come up with something for dessert that screams SPRING (I like getting all seasonal when it is my turn), so I am testing recipes. I tried a strawberry cake thingy a couple of weeks ago that did not come out.

This one is a contender, but I would add more berries and mix some into the batter. I think a should have taken it out of the oven sooner too, as the texture towards the center is “creamier” and looks more like the recipe pics. I only baked for about 60 minutes vs the 70 in the recipe, but the edges were a bit dry...probably a high altitude thing. I love the not over sweet flavor. It would be luscious with some whipped cream and maybe a sweeter raspberry sauce for serving. Or ice cream and raspberry sauce. Hmmmm...🤔🧐

Planning to give most of the rest of it away. My parents will like this😊😊

That sounds yum!

My absolute favorite springtime dessert is Pavlova. I make them individual size, build your own style with meringue, lemon curd, fresh berries, berry sauce & whipped cream.

From Easter:
