Well the duck called and he couldn't go to lunch because of some plumbing problem at the Fern House so that was okay, I went to the pool for an extra long time. Then I ate a sandwich and headed for the fruit stand where I bought 4 big bags of good healthy stuff to have on hand.
Next up was a trip to Publix (where shopping is a pleasure - so they say) where I walked the whole store looking for good things to get. I love these big olives but didn't buy them as I had the small ones at home open already. But they are so much fun to pop into your mouth! Love them!
Dr. Wacks called me early in the morning to come in for my flu shot. He said over 65 needs the super flu shot and needs it now as it looks like a lot of stuff out there this year. He also said to tell the duck that the under 65 shots will be ready in September and he should get one for sure. So for my over 65 friends, please take notice.
By the time I got home and got all my groceries upstairs and put away, all the fruit scrubbed, my clothes changed and my jammies on (Hey! It was almost 3:00!) I was so exhausted I couldn't do another thing until I rested.
Publix didn't have the chicken breasts that I usually buy but I did find some organic (?) ones so I got them and some sweet potatoes to bake and a big head of cauliflower to cook and mash (!) I'll let you know how I like that and the recipe if I like it. Basically you just steam the whole thing and mash it, add a bit of salt and pepper and some butter (I use Smart Balance, I really like that) and you're good to go. Very low calorie if you don't do much butter and supposed to be very good. We'll see. I'll form no opinion without giving it a fair shot.
So today I have canasta again so I can't get into the pool until around 5:00 but that's okay, it's warm and usually no one else is there then (unless those French Canadians go). Anyway it'll be fine unless we get a late afternoon storm in which case I'll just have to walk.
So that was my day in a nutshell, how was yours?
Update: The cauliflower mash was just delicious but in no way was it anything at all like mashed potatoes. It was a delicious side dish though and only 25 calories for one cup plus whatever you add to it. I would definitely do this again. If you like cheese on a vegetable (which I don't) that would also be a good add on. And I have enough left for two more servings. Large servings!
