summer foods

ken and i have made some changes to our lifestyle and are following the south beach diet pretty closely. this was one of our lunches the other day. tuna fish (mixed with a little lite mayo, mustard, pickles, and capers) put in a sliced tomato on top of a bed of greens. finally, i added a sprinkle of goat cheese and fresh dill, threw on some peppers, and drizzled an olive oil/balsamic mixture on top and bon appetite!

i really love the south beach diet cookbook and highly recommend it. it doesn't feel like you are on a diet! i love cooking and better yet, i love the presentation of a meal. Even though Emeril Lagasse or Rachel Ray aren't beating down my door, I thought this meal looked (and tasted) pretty tasty.

Here's a silly picture of our friends Barb and Bob. Barb got a promotion and they transferred to Sigonella, Sicily. We will miss them dearly. I have big shoes to fill taking Bob's place as the Base Librarian.

That looked delicious and you could make it for me anytime. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I sure miss you and Ken. I am glad you have this blog. It helps tremendously. You feel close enough to hug.
