Laura had choir practice at Harvest Christian Center last evening. I sliced red onion, kosher dill pickles, cluster tomato, and pepperjack cheese. When it was time for dinner, Laura toasted some 9-grain bread. We made sandwiches with the items I had sliced and deli mesquite-smoked turkey breast. We had Jalapeño kettle chips. I had a caffeine-free Diet Pepsi in a frosty mug, and Laura had milk. It was a simple yet very tasty and satisfying meal.

Tonight, I shall make a stir fry, with chicken, onion, minced garlic, grated ginger, mushrooms, red bell pepper, and sugar snap peas.
