Blurring Vision

Oh – I hate these contacts! I wear the CRT lenses ….you put them in at night, sleep in them and it corrects your vision overnight. But my eyes are sore and blurred tonight. That’s my excuse for poor spelling.

We went to see a Utica College Hockey game tonight with friends: Rocko, Jackie, Bob, Nancy. It was great fun. photo1-3   Then we all went on to Cavallo’s for dinner.  I didn’t take many pics since I was playing with my new phone and trying to figure it out. You’ll be happy to know that I haven’t included the 5 to 6 pictures of the floor, the seats, my leg, my foot…..Geesh! I hate new technology!  Back to dinner… Ted had the yummy (if you eat meat and high calories) Cavallo’s Signature Tunnel sandwich which was sausage, meatballs, sauce on a huge roll covered with mozzarella:  photo1-2

My dinner was Haddock Francaise which wasn’t too bad except very greasy looking. My stomach would have been very vocal if I had engaged in all that grease, so I dissected it slightly by removing the topping.  The picture is pre-dissection:

I don’t mean to sound displeased, because it really wasn’t bad and the company actually made the dinner extra special.

My eyes are winning this fight, I’m going to give in. Hope you have some really pleasant dreams…good night.

Wakin and Shakin

Good morning, All!  Shane and I began our day with a really enjoyable 6.3 mile run. That put the running miles weekly total at just 25 miles.  I like to keep it between 21 – 25 miles per week right now.

I decided on a Tofurky Omelet this morning: 

  • tofurky-omelet-001Here are the players in this 1 Act Play: 
  • 3 Large cherry tomatoes, sliced.
  • 1/2 green pepper, sliced.
  • 2 TBS chopped onion
  • 1 small pc. Tofurky, chopped

tofurky-omelet-0023/4 cup egg beaters

  • snipped chives
  • about 1 oz blue cheese crumbles



Put about 1/2 TBS olive oil in fry pan and heat on med-hi.

Add veggie mix. Saute 1 min. Add Tofurky and chives. Cook about 3 min. Add E/Beaters and turn heat to med.  In about 2-3 min. gently pick up sides of omelet to let loose eggs get underneath to meet the heat of the pan. Sprinkle on cheese, turn off heat, fold omelet, let cook an additional 1 minute. Turn onto plate.  I topped the omelet with a few shakes of hot sauce and 1 TBS salsa. It sits on top of a homemade english muffin.
