Steak and Shrimp Salad

Ok, I have to tell you about my doctor's appointment on Wednesday. First of all, I really like my new doctor, Dr. Loafer. She really listened to everything I talked about. She probably wished I would stop talking so much, but she never cut me off. Even though I went to her about my thyroid, she is going to look at how everything in my body is working. So... it looks like while I'm fixing some issues with my insides, I will have a very short list of foods I will be able to eat, for 6 months. I have to admit, I'm a little bit nervous about it. Ok fine, I'm a lot nervous about it. But I know it will be worth it to be healthy again. Hopefully I will have the will power to keep cooking for others while refraining from eating it myself. I will continue to update you all on how things are going.

My friend, Corley, grew the tomatoes I'm using in this salad. They are so good. Thanks lady.
