Stormy, snacky kind of day

Saturday was one of those lazy cloudy days that threatens rain, keeps you inside and then finally lets loose.  It was one of those thunder storms that makes you hide under the covers.  I have a lot of windows in my house and I WAS literally hiding from the lightning.  But look how pretty after the storm.












I was going to a beach clean up but that storm flooded my street and the lightning could probably be felt 20-30 miles away.  But we will definitely go next month.

It was a day to snack and snack we did (yet healthy).  Got some plantains that were ready (from my back yard :))

Sliced them up nice and thin.  Sprinkled them with olive oil, garlic salt, pepper and let them bake until they were a nice browned color.

The dip was easy:  light sour cream

onion, garlic, lemon n lime juice, cilantro.  So refreshing.  Went well with the plantains.

My sister in law had never tried tofu and was really wanting some.  So I made some, marinaded with a spicy teriyaki sauce and then sauted them with onions.  YUM!  She loved it with the spinach.  Gonna turn her into a veggie lover.

Then we snacked on veggie pizza made by yours truly.  Everything went on it!

Hung out with my son and nephews and it made for a great Saturday.

Eat well, live long and enjoy a healthy snack!

    Thanks! The plantains are normally fried in very hot oil, but I tried to make a healthier version.
