What a reality check! What a challenge!
I should have known better. By the end of the day my right ankle/leg had enough weight bearing without me trying to make dinner, simple at that! But, I wanted to surprise my friend with some kind of a dinner to show my appreciation for everything he has been doing for me. He was so surprised when I offered the invitation.
On top of the beans we had shredded cheddar cheese, chopped lettuce, chopped tomatoes, black olives, salsa, sour cream and avocado. I didn't take much time to make them look very pretty but they sure tasted good. Taking photos was a very last minute thought while we were starting to sit. No photo staging here.
It was a warm summer evening and a nice light beer was a good choice of beverage with the Tostadas. I was thinking about making some vanilla pudding with bananas for dessert but simply was not able to do it. Since I am not able to jump in the car and drive to the store I was having to work with what I had in the pantry.
Much to my surprise when my friend arrived he had some
Mocha Latte Italian Gelato - - - - -
and a lovely bouquet of flowers - - - - -
in his hands. I was so surprised and it made me very happy! He was very grateful for my effort but very concerned about my ankle/leg.
Most of the evening I spent reclining on the sofa with an ice pack on my ankle. I am sure my ankle will feel better in no time.
