The Day After…

Leftovers with Mother and Papa

Yesterday I posted about the delicious stuffed shells that Dorothy featured on her recent post for the New Vintage Kitchen. Last evening, I reheated the leftovers in the oven, added some chickpeas I had left from my lunch of chickpea-stuffed avocado, a sprinkle of shredded parmesan and multigrain bread. Just as Dorothy had promised, the time spent with the flavors all mingling made it taste even better than the night before. Adding the chickpeas upped the protein and fiber, as did the use of the whole grain bread.

The great news was that I had lost a pound this morning–woohoo! Thunderstorms rolled in this morning accompanied by some pretty loud and jarring lightning strikes that were close enough to the house we felt the first one and Randy saw the second one hit in the front yard between our house and the pine tree and magnolia tree while he was on the screened back porch. It was pretty darn scary and he beat a quick path back into the kitchen. Fortunately, it does not look like there was any damage and at least the temperature has dropped to the lower 80s and will be down in the 70s later. I might even be able to walk today!

      Thank you, Mags. I was excited about a loss after a while of plateau! We were thankful no damage was done. One fairly large limb fell at the bottom of the driveway was all I have seen so far.

  4. Looks delicious! I hope you got to have your walk. It seems that suddenly the thunder and lightning season has struck everyone. We had one good storm this week. It is so good for refreshing the atmosphere and kickstarting our garden, but it holds its dangers here as elsewhere. One house in the more historic area of the city was struck but luckily the fire department was close by and quick on site. Only one house was damaged and it was relatively minimal.
