    I'm having a special treat this morning-
    Irish soda bread with currants, toasted, & spread lightly with unsalted butter. Mmmmm - this will be yummy with my decaf! :)

    A very lazy tea as I have a lot of work on and I can get panicky about deadlines.... Broccoli & cheese soup out of a carton with olive bread.

    the soda-bread toast was DELICIOSO! - & i didn't slather it dripping with butter. :feeling virtuous:
    Tonight's dinner was 2 baked potatoes with ranch dressing, & a large portion of cole slaw. :D Yum!

    I can't get my pix off my phone, & onto my laptop! :mad: I hate it when tech doesn't cooperate. Grrr.
    I've tried getting my phone onto the same WiFi network to share the new photos [failed repeatedly], e-mailing individual pix, [ditto], & sharing files via Bluetooth [ditto]. // Dammit.

    Yesterday for lunch, I made a yummy Asian "soup" with brown rice, white miso [2 tsp], live apple-cider vinegar [1 tsp], 5 oz of baby spinach, & tempeh - I toasted the cubed tempeh in sesame oil in a skillet, so they were like "croutons". It was light, brothy, & delicious.

    Today i made a pita-pizza with roasted garlic tomato sauce, fresh-grated mozz, & more spinach - sprinkled with minced basil & smoked paprika. The center was tender, & the crust edges were just lightly crisped. :)

    yesterday's brekkie was 2 slices of leftover 3-cheese pizza from Fiorella's wood-fire oven, with extra sauce over the naked crust-edge - scrumptious, pizza flavors marry so nicely overnite. :)

    This morning i discovered mold in the bread. :( Half a loaf, wasted.
    My client's wife likes to keep it at room-temp, which is impossible when it's an organic loaf w/o preservatives! - It needs refrigeration from day-1. // So my planned brekkie was cancelled, & i'm having Bear Naked almond n' vanilla granola with 2 small bananas in 2% milk; everything's organic, & i warmed it... delicious.

    Dunno what's for tea, I've been ordered to sit and rest so I'm not making it. (Probably to get my back better so I can work hard next week).

    For breakfast we had toast and jam exciting... For lunch we had tortilla with raw onions and tomatoes yum!
    We went out earlier for Tapas, it was to die for... Then for afters we had a stroll to the nearest beach front and got some ice cream I had Mint Chock Chip and the OH had Bubble-Gum what a classy guy :) We are thinking of going back to the villa for a swim to cool off, then having another trip out for churros with chocolate sauce as I'm having strong cravings for chocolate and a nice refreshing mocktail probably Mojito as I really like the mint in it.
