My first attempt at cooking dinner for Orthodox Christmas/3 Kings Day went pretty well. I realized later on that I made a low carb dinner without trying. This means I am in the mindset of just making a low carb meal without having to think about it too much. I am more comfortable with the idea of it. I made deviled eggs, spinach and artichoke dip, pesto mold, whole wheat baked chips with garlic and cheese, salad, roasted chicken marinated with olive oil, adobo, black pepper and paprika, and roasted root vegetables(turnips(in England they are called manglewurstler. Cute!)parsnips and carrots). And for dessert baked apples. My mom brought over Baklava and Niel's mom brought over meatballs. Here are a few pics. The camera died before we could take a picture of the mom's and the rest of the food.
And you would think that everyone would be banning together to help the people who are suffering because of the Tsunami Quake. These people do not think they have to.
On a daily basis I can think of so many things that can depress me. But if people are satisfying there needs who cares right? Hypocrisy and double standards are also rampant. Thank God for crafts and a good husband.
