Salsa with Trinidad Yellow Scorpion, Red Bhut and 7-pot Jonah peppers with Ballentine Ale. BTW, these are very hot peppers, nothing else to eat but some sour cream to put out the fire.

We're not watching Super Bowl, opting instead to watch some programs on the BBC iPlayer. I just whipped up some guacamole with lovely soft and ripe avocados, and we'll be munching on soy and flaxseed tortilla chips from Trader Joe's with the guac.

This evening, no carbs with the meal, as our afternoon chips will have taken care of that. We'll have salmon with lots of brocolli and yellow and green beans. Oh - and a bottle of cheap $2 cab from Whole Foods.

No Super Bowl here, either, but during halftime our neighbor (who buys curry powder in five-pound bags) dropped off some maunapua! Most of them are pork but she always makes a couple with shrimp...

Yum!!! What a great neighbor.

All of our usual restaurants were either impossible to get to due to the parades, or jammed full, so for lunch we tried a different one. We ordered grilled chicken Caesar salad; surely that would have to be a healthy, low calorie selection.

It was served with a large, thick slice of hot cheese pizza entirely covering the salad. Then when we took that off, underneath was a huge piece of butter-grilled chicken and way down on the bottom, no more than a half cup of salad. Oh well! At least we tried.

I think I'm skipping dinner....

As you might imagine, she gets free handyman services anytime she wants them. Both sides feel as if we're getting 70% of the good deal.

She's the widow of my friend who died suddenly of a stroke a couple months ago. I think she routinely cooks way more than she needs and gives it away. Even so she's losing weight.
