Living Life & Thank You


I had dreamed of getting a blog post written last night but life got in the way.  As you all know, I try to make sure that meal preparation is done ahead of time because of the late hour that we arrive home.  I did quite a bit on the weekend so it has been a very simple matter of heating and eating the past couple of nights.  Last night I cooked a pot of rice and made Mexican Bean Pie ready for our dinner tonight.  I will just need to cook the vegetables when I get in this evening.  The pie is my own invention and has 2 ingredients – refried beans and rice.  Mix quantities of each together, spread into a pie plate or shallow casserole dish, top with breadcrumbs and grated cheese.  I heat it in the microwave then finish the topping under the griller.  I use a gluten-free version of topping using almond meal, flaxseed meal, and spices.  The choice is yours.


Tonight will be a new ‘Foodie Friday’ post in which I will focus on growing at least some of your own food and the benefits it provides.

Finally, I would like to say thank you to those of you who commented on my previous post about reaching a milestone of 3 years of blogging.  Your thoughtful and positive feedback is so valuable.  Although I said that this blog is essentially my diary, it gives me great joy to realise that you are out there reading and see value in what I write.  I hope that will continue and I will not let you down

Thanks, once again and I look forward to many more posts and comments.

Thank You

There will be a new blog post a bit later but for the moment I just wanted say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on the last few posts, especially, “Where Are We Headed”.

I have been a bit slow to respond but have now replied to you all.

A warm welcome to new readers those commenting for the first time.  I hope you will continue to participate as I think it is the comments that really make the blogs worth reading.
