About a week ago (last Friday) Maddy was in a bad car accident. All told, she survived it quite well. She's a very strong person. Mad was shaken up, to be sure, but doesn't appear to be physically hurt in a serious way.
Since then we've continued on with a very hectic schedule and have tried to make the best of things. That partially explains my absence from the blogosphere. I've kept up with the HealthFellow columns but lacked the mental or physical will to update things here.
A few positive highlights from this week:
Last night I made some fresh, wild caught scallops (pan-seared) in a lemon butter and white wine sauce. I served them with some homemade garlic-Parmesan mashed cauliflower. Mad told me it was one of her favorite meals ever. What sweet music to my ears! :)
I couldn't find much in the way of healthy, LC prepared foods at Whole Foods Market yesterday evening. So I spoke to the butcher and got some basic advice about how to make chicken wings at home (in the oven). It's good to have snack options on the days we're not on the road. Mad also gave the wings a big thumbs up. :) Sometimes you've got to be resourceful in order to stay on plan and to save a buck or two.
I wrote a couple columns this past week that deal with low carb issues on the HealthFellow site. I love spreading the good word about low carb living in an honest and non-pushy kind of way. I hope I'm succeeding in doing that.
Speaking of blogging ... I've tried to stop by and touch base on most of your menu-blogs as well. I'm not the most organized person but my intention is certainly to stay in touch as best as I can. This isn't a strong suit for me. It never has been. But I'm trying to change that.
I hope you all have a productive and/or restful weekend. Today we're both doing some work. Tomorrow, we'll mostly try to rest and recover. Fingers crossed. :)
