Green Garden Salad

It’s tradition in my family to open one present on Christmas Eve… then go to Midnight Mass. This year I went to the Tyson’s Mall in Virginia with Mike so that he could by my gift… and I just opened it.!!!! Donna Karen’s Cashmere Mist Perfume.

So now, we’re getting ready to head out for Midnight Mass (10pm) at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. tonight. You have to have a ticket to get into the mass and I didn’t schedule ahead of time, so hopefully we’ll be able to get tickets tonight.?!?!

Well we’re sitting in a winter wonderland this morning in Maryland, Washington D.C. area. I just came from shoveling snow… and it’s all been covered up by new snow falling. It was fun non the less… I hadn’t shoveled snow since I was a kid. When kids lived to go out in the snow and get covered in the white stuff…..

Early this morning Mike started making his Minestrone Soup… and we’re going to have it for lunch. My Minestrone Soup turned out good.. but with too many noodles. I put the entire box of noodles into the soup and it was toooooo much. So we through that soup out today.

Speaking of food… last night I had my Green Salad with a piece of Wheat Bread. I indulged on my Minestrone Soup for lunch and then a bowl of Berries (Raspberry, Blueberry, Blackberry) with Flaxseed and Low Fat Whipped Topping!

Infact, I was feeling a littel blotted last night… so I cut down on my intake!!! This morning/afternoon, I’m hungry. Can’t wait to try his food.

After popping all those Benadryl… I can finally breath on my own and am not sneezing and coughing and blowing my nose every five seconds.

We woke up to Potomac, Maryland sun shining through the skylights and warmer temperatures. Mikes son had a friend over, so we woke up and made some breakfast… I had a craving for French Toast(but didn’t eat). I instead I cut up some Oranges and ate those with a little Persian Bread and a small Cube of Fete Cheese. I know not good!!!!

We relaxed a little bit and got our bags unpacked and made piles for laundry… and decided to go out and explore some of the Washington D.C. area. Mike had been craving Shishkabobs for a long time, so we went to a local place called Moby Dicks for his food. There I had a Green Salad and some Roasted Onions, and Tomatoes. Mike ordered a dish which his mother made in California.. the Vegetable Stew(Ashareshde) and it was nothing like Mike’s moms dish. We had some flat bread and enjoyed the meal.

It was nearing nearing sundown, so Mike brought out the candles and after lighting one at a time, we read the story of Chanukah. It’s an amazing story of miracles!!!!!
