Sharon and I have once again reached the point where we need to lose some weight. In the past, several times we’ve gone on a rigorous diet to lose weight and we’ve done so successfully. Then we go off the diet and in the ensuing months we’ve gradually gained the weight back until we’re back where we started. Not good.
This time we haven’t started a formal diet but are shifting our own diet to include lots and lots of vegetables, no sweets, breads or pastas, meat and fish are okay, and then more vegetables. Sharon has become a fanatic over vegetables. Maybe this is in reaction to me almost killing her with junk food when she was incapacitated with pneumonia. I don’t know, but I’m dutifully following her lead on this diet, and when I had the assignment of cooking dinner this past Monday I really tried to make her proud of me.
I cooked swordfish, (broiled), and I sauteed mushrooms with scallions and grape tomatoes. I cooked brussel sprouts, now there’s a vegetable, and I also cooked mashed cauliflower. That dinner was the pinnacle of my experience cooking vegetables, and Sharon indeed was favorably impressed, which is the whole point of this story. I did it!!!
