My vacation is ending


Breakfast is served: Zucchini muffin egg sandwich with cheese. Yum!

Can I just say “Waah”? I’ve been off for so long that I’m really not looking forward to going back to work. But that’s what I have to do tomorrow. Tuesday is back-to-work day for me.

Why didn’t I win the lottery while I was off? Oh yeah — I don’t think I bought a ticket.

It’s been a busy weekend chez moi — and a kitchen-heavy one. (Every so often, I’m just in the mood to try new recipes … or revive old ones.) In case you missed it while out having your own fabulous adventures, here’s what I’ve been up to:

— I created a new Zucchini-Crusted Pizza Casserole, inspired by Roni at Green Lite Bites.

— I made my own low-carb barbecue sauce and cinnamon- and cocoa-roasted almonds.

— And I hurt myself at last night’s softball game. Yes, it still hurts — a lot. I don’t see it stopping any time soon.

Today, I’ve been trying to make the most of my last vacation day. I was up relatively early, at 9 a.m. Considering I was up at 1:30 a.m. baking low-carb zucchini muffins and didn’t get to bed until 3, that’s plenty early.

I used one of those muffins (from George Stella’s cookbook) to make a delicious breakfast sandwich: 1 muffin, 1 egg and 1 slice of cheese for 6.6 net carbs. I also put tonight’s dinner in the slow cooker: Pork roast with homemade low-carb barbecue sauce.

Then I headed to my favorite used bookstore for some writing time. 550 words later, it’s time for lunch and other stuff. If I’m lucky, I’ll get 500 more words written before the end of the night (and my vacation).

Tomorrow morning is my next weigh-in for Romance’s Biggest Winner. I think I’ll see some good numbers this week. I’d better.
