Cleo -0.2, Tony -1.0 – I’m sick today. My nose was runny all night and my skin is bad and itchy everywhere. Plus I didn’t sleep well. Today I’ll be sure to avoid my allergens and to use all my meds and creams. I still think it might be from those scallops. How did Tony lose another pound by doing nothing?
Today we get to try a new vegetable, from a list of suggestions. We must combine it with another approved veg. I pick sweet potatoes. They are one of my favorites.
Tony gets home from work asking for a hamburger. Sorry, but I’m excited about sweet potatoes, so no cheating for you. Plus we get chicken and some really good veg and it’s ready prepped.
Well, the sweet potatoes were a bit of a disappointment. The veggies were much more tasty. I can’t believe I just said that. But the recipe for vegetable timbale is delicious. I should have taken a picture for you, but mine turned out pretty ugly. Its a casserole made of layers of zucchini, onion, swiss chard, and carrots, with goat cheese and topped with parmesan. Luckily this guy took a picture of his, and it’s beautiful. Of course we finish off with our 1 oz of chocolate.
BTW – I thought a timbale was a kind of drum. But in cooking it’s a fancy mold. Haha you learned something!
