Simple green salad with fresh Balkans feta cheese and local capers.  I am making a sort of Mediterranean vinaigrette.  This afternoon I made Parmesan and garlic biscuits which will go nicely with the salad.

I have a wicked craving for chile con carne so am making a big old pot of it.  Right now.  It will pair perfectly with bay-infused Jasmine rice and homemade garlic cheese biscuits.  This is our high-carb cheat night.  :P  Will probably make some sort of cucumber salad.

Good morning!  :)  Thank you so very much for your love and concern.  We are indeed just fine.  Our house did flood once a few weeks ago and we are having more trouble with leaks and seeping through the floors but nothing like others are going through.  Croatia has had more rain this summer than ever on record.  I believe it has rained at least 75% of the days we have been here since May, often during the night, but still very strange for the Mediterranean!!  Things are stunningly beautiful and lush because of it BUT I feel terrible for the farmers and those who thrive on tourism as both fared poorly this summer.   Many farmers lost everything to floods, hail, rot...and yet they must keep going, one day at a time.  Thankfully, today is sunny and beautiful; it is to rain again tomorrow and Tuesday and then sunshine again a few days.  We have spoken with many Croats who say they have never seen anything like this, even a few elderly people who are absolutely stunned. 

 

It was so kind of you to ask!  :)

Ever since coming to Croatia in May, we have sort of fallen from the low-carb lifestyle a bit and I can really feel it.  Strangely, we have not gained any weight but I crave carbs as I used to...when I was doing my best, I had no cravings whatsoever.  And now, the more carbs I have, the more I want.  I really need to stop this cycle.  :huh:  Carbs bloat me.  So, no more potatoes for me or awhile.  But guess what I made?  Pizza!!!  High carb, delicious, unctuous, incredible pizza.  Again.  And a chocolate chestnut torte with a lovely cream cheese frosting (this was actually very low carb, to sort of justify the pizza ;)). 

 

Low carbs.  Tomorrow.  ^_^

This morning I had toasted homemade sorghum bread with homemade blackberry jam on one piece and local chestnut honey on the other.  Mmmmm!!!  :wub:
