Here are a couple of interesting photos that were taken this month by my friend Bonnie Siebert. She and her daughter Laurie were just in India on a tour... The first one is a sidewalk snake charmer... Miss Bonnie loves India and has visited there many times.
And this is the Palace of the Winds ... I have always loved this building! Makes for a great desktop background.

Dinner last night....
(I know you are getting tired of the "diet" dinners, so I will add some of my old tried and true favorite recipes in the next few blogs.) First, I've been picking out a 200-230 calorie entree (portion control!) ... then I put it on top of a bowl of cut up veggies... sometimes steamed... and/or lettuce-cabbage-kale-or spinach. I can eat all the tomatoes, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, pea pods, carrots... and leafy veggies I want, because they have so few calories... celery being the least... and it really fills me up. Here I cut up some lettuce, bell pepper, tomato, and celery. Drizzled about 1 T or less of olive oil over all, drizzled on some lemon juice, sprinkled on Mrs. Dash, and some
garlic powder... then topped it with two slices of turkey, some stuffing and gravy. The stuffing and gravy were about the size of an ice cream scoop.
