Yesterday and today I made all my yearly checkup appointments. Sise for the blocked arteries, the heart doc, teeth to get the new partial correctly fitted, and the derm doc. I can do all but the derm man via phone. Two wanted me to do “facetime.” I told them I had ZOOM, and they said they had a land line. At the end I felt like a very responsible old lady.

Covid weight has won. I announced that we were going on a diet, but we were starting out at “Casarina.” He had squid ravioli. They had taken my beet salad off the menu, but a very glorious Caprese salad made me very happy. Three kinds of very ripe tomatoes with fresh Mozzarella made for a delightful start to the evening.

For desert we both were suckered in by the Crème Brule topped cheesecake.

Since then we have been dieting. Yes, I said that. James Beard’s Spicy Chicken and his sliced tomato salad. My mouth is watering just typing those words. Joy truly can be found in old cook books.
- Himself: Much better today.
- Myself: Heading for the showers then lunch.
- Reading: Starting a new Dick Francis.
- Photo: The Crème Brule topped cheese cake.
- Gratitude’s: To feel as if I accomplished a few things.

The cheesecake looks scrumptious. I have an old cookbook probably from the 70s of nothing but cheesecakes every style every topping everything you could ever imagine and a cheesecake. Some nights I just sit and read that book like a novel. I’d love to eat out with you as you appreciateGood food.
