Hasta ahora no he leĂ­do el cuestionario, me faltĂł tiempo para hacerlo.
Ahora estamos en un tiempo de tanto calor, que hay hasta pocas ganas de comer y solo apetece cosas frescas, comocomo es un gazpacho o un salmorejo, muy tĂ­pico en AndalucĂ­a, que es la tierra en que resido.
Que tengas un buen dĂ­a.

Lemon meringue pie is one of the few desserts I make the old fashioned way which does have allot of sugar for us but we just figure it into our calorie count. actually I think this is the only desert I use sugar in now adays. enjoy your day Kathy

So far I have not read the questionnaire, I lacked time to do so.
Now we are in a time of so much heat, that there is even little desire to eat and only craving fresh things, such as a gazpacho or a salmorejo, very typical in Andalusia, which is the land in which I reside.
Have a nice day.
