Hey Good Lookin’ / Oye Luce Bien

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

GIVEN THAT I was told I shouldn’t eat canned (tinned) fruit, I’ve been having a fresh orange every day. When the oranges run out, I’ll have something else. But, it means I’ve been cooking every morning. Which in my case simply means, I’m using a knife. An entire week and I haven’t cut myself. Not even once. My recipe is too complex to put into words, so I’ve decided to provide step-by-step photos beginning with the one at top.

DADO QUE ME dijeron que no debía comer fruta enlatada, he estado comiendo una naranja fresca todos los días. Cuando las naranjas se acaben, tomaré algo más. Pero, significa que he estado cocinando todas las mañanas. Lo que en mi caso simplemente significa, estoy usando un cuchillo. Una semana entera y no me he cortado. Ni una sola vez. Mi receta es demasiado compleja para ponerla en palabras, así que he decidido proporcionar fotos paso a paso que comiencen con la de arriba.

Not to be outdone, San Geraldo turned cauliflower into rice. Show-off!
Para no quedarse atrás, San Geraldo convirtió la coliflor en arroz. ¡Alarde!

Dietary Supplements

Wednesday late afternoon, after a wonderful few hours spent with old friends from San Diego, I had an emotional crash. My other old friend, Self-Loathing, dropped in for a visit. I really need to end that friendship. I hate that guy.

I do not, however, hate San Geraldo. Knowing it would make me feel better, he picked up a bag of assorted chocolate bombones. They’re a great mood-enhancer, an excellent aid for digestion, and a powerful dietary supplement before and after a workout. (I might be making that up).

ASSORTED BOMBONES.
FOR MEDICINAL PURPOSES ONLY.
I THINK I WENT BEYOND THE RECOMMENDED DAILY ALLOWANCE.
SO, MY LUNCH THE NEXT DAY. ENSALADA ALA SAN GERALDO.
(AVOCADO, PLUM, CLEMENTINE, MELON, CELERY, ALMONDS, CHEESE, AND TURKEY.)
SAN  GERALDO’S LUNCH ALA HIMSELF.
(MY PLATE FITS, WITH ROOM TO SPARE, ON THE PLACEMAT.)
AND THE DAY THAT FOLLOWED.
(PAPAYA, MANGO, PLUM, MELON, CELERY, ALMONDS, CHEESE, AND TURKEY.)
BECAUSE I WORRY ABOUT TOO MUCH PROTEIN.
(ROSCOS MADE BY JUAN CARLOS’S MOTHER. LIKE DONUTS… BUT BETTER.)
WHAT WAS LEFT WHEN I SAT DOWN TO BLOG.
DON’T WORRY; I DIDN’T DO IT ALONE. SAN GERALDO HAD 3 PIECES.
WHAT’S LEFT SINCE I…  UM… WAIT…
WHAT’S LEFT SINCE I SAT… AHEM
WHAT’S LEFT NOW SINCE I SAT DOWN TO BLOG.

So glad to be finished with that bag of chocolate. The Christmas sweets are now in the shops!
