March SOL – Day 27



Today is Day 27 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at Two Writing Teachers

Dinner was a success. Everyone loved my ham – covered in pineapple slices, cloves and then glazed.


Even the new recipe for brownies went over well. (This was from a diabetic cookbook.)
We discussed eating habits and it was an interesting discussion. The middle granddaughter is now a vegetarian, so her choices were limited, I made a special quinoa salad for her but she only had a bit. The rest of us (8 others) were all omnivores – some stressed they leaned more to the carnivore.
My own daughter is a vegan, so I have to be careful when I cook for her. No butter, honey, milk, besides the meat products. She usually brings her main course though. Makes it a little easier.
We do try to eat healthy, but breads and cakes are my downfall and always have been. Special meals we overindulge and then pay the price the next day. Cooking for family is something I enjoy but I need to scale back.

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter.
