Leave My Paula Alone!

Green Goddess on a cracker people get over it! I cant believe the flack she is getting for having diabetes and the way she cooks!

I have 2 very small points:

1. She cooks the way EVERYONE cooks in the south!  We eat fried chicken, biscuits with BUTTER, gravy, mac and cheese,  and pecan pie.  Actually the list of unhealthy foods is endless. If you don't like what she cooks then don't watch her show and don't cook the food the features. Why bash her for it?

2. She should have come clean about having diabetes? Why? You cant look at her and tell she either has or will have health problems?  Why is it anyone's business? 

Ok.......I am done with my mini rant. Ill just end with this.

Leave my sweet Paula alone! She is doing her thing and we should do ours.

PS. I had broiled salmon and field peas for supper.


All I'm gonna do is just go on and do what I feel.

Greek Tomato Salad

I hate tomato's. I really do. BUT, my friend made this for me years ago and now I cant get enough of it! Its a easy peasy Greek Tomato Salad. It takes minutes to make and its best if you let it marinade overnight in the fridge.

I started with about 8 to 10 Roma tomato's diced.

Then I added 1/2 large red onion chopped. I love red onion so adjust to your taste.

Then add a container of feta. I should have added two containers because it is awesome but again add according to your taste.

Next add black olives. I added 3/4 can but again.......up to you.

Now add the Greek dressing. Now I usually use Yia Yias but alas.....very little left in the bottle so I had to use my "on sale" back up. I use about half  to three fourths of the bottle.

Mix together and refrigerate over night.

Now, you can eat this all by itself but it is awesome on chicken, fish, salads, toast points, and so on.

I am working on becoming a Veggie/Vegan but I have not cut fish out of my diet yet. I wanted to share a delicious wrap I made the other day.

I started with a whole wheat tortilla and added some Tribe spicy hummus

Add fresh spinach

Red onion

A can of tuna


Just a drizzle

Wrap it up and scarf it down!

I hope everyone had a wonderful to bed for me.

Lazy Day

I had intended to clean, organize, and cook today but I am just not feeling it. Well, I'm not feeling it right at this moment. So I decided to make me a cup of some new tea I ordered.

Here is what it looks like prior to adding the boiling water.

New magazine I will be reading later

AND a new book!

I hope everyone is having a relaxing or productive day.
