Egg Roll Tuesday

do egg rolls count as calories

only if you admit to having one

what if they are baked

and not fried

really .. would it still be an egg roll

OK, I will go back out to the garden

pretend we never had

this conversation

you decide

I say

no egg roll,

no calorie

but then, what do I know…

so YOU know

they are homemade

a calorie, will never hide

there is no lying

the real you

will always know

whether you admit to it

or not

Q

bake for 30 minutes

 

Chance inspiration…

prince edward 2011 sand banks

 off in the distance

 silence beckons

if by chance

you are nearby

your spirit hears the call

and no matter

where you are

no matter the day or night

you are blessed

with a vision that goes

beyond

into eternity

spaghettini chillie tofu

1 serving of cooked spaghettini (if you are making it for 2, double accordingly.)

If you are lucky enough to live within a decent distance from a Chinese/Asian market, you can purchase a take out order of stir fried tofu in a rich spicy tomato sauce.  If not, you can stir fry a package of medium -firm tofu, then toss it in a cup or more of spiced tomato sauce , canned is fine, unless you want to make up a batch of salsa on your own.

The green you see is fresh garlic leek sprouts that I either cook with the pasta, or dice it cold.  Then toss with great gusto.. and delve in

Simple, easy and satisfying.  You can eat it cold, or as a hot dish.  In the summer I go for cold, with a nice green salad on the side.

Seasoning in the dish, ginger, garlic, and Japanese red pepper/chilli.. (fish sauce optional)

pick a door, any door, they all lead somewhere

and some are already open.  Interesting that altho’ this door was open, and on a main street, I would not have just gone in.  Without knowing more about it, I would have knocked or taken a good look inside from the street, before entering..

Enjoy another Thursday, exploring  more doors.

Signs

PL Precept # 15  All is a mirror

Happy Tuesday everyone

Treasures found yesterday, wonderful bricks, a sign with history, and a set of doors to a root cellar.

Does anyone know what these doors are called?  I want to say trap doors, but.. I am not sure?  I found wonderful doors, but will save them for Norm’s Thursday Doors.

It was misting off and on, practically all day but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves.  I have this lovely friend who I can always count on to get in touch at the last moment and suggest a road trip. Whooo hoooo out of the blue, we took off for an adventure that led us to a wonderful tea room in Perth, Ontario. We really  did well, we got there early enough to get a table at the lace curtained table where we could enjoy the street traffic on Perth’s main street at the noon hour.

I didn’t think of it, or I would have taken pictures of the delicate china our lunch was served on, Bonnie had a fancy tea, while I stayed with my ice water..  We both tried the Thai soup, while Bonnie had a sandwich I had a wrap, all delicious. YES we both indulged in dessert. Uh huh, not telling, calories were not counted.  Address will be shown below.

Doing something ..just because… can be a wonderful way to enjoy a mini vacation when none was planned.

Happiness is something that comes from within.  Doing something that brings smiles and a lot of chuckling is a super way to make a dull weather day, a whole lot of fun.  Good food, and great company Whoooo hoooo Katchoo.. =^_^=
