The hot flashes and sweating started the Summer after my surgery. It's not like a normal sweat. I can feel it coming on. I get flushed and my body temperature rises and then it's totally out of control. It's not like a sweaty "I just worked out" sweat. I always say "my elbows are sweating!" when it happens because sweat will be literally dripping from may elbows like a leaky faucet. Beads of sweat cover my entire body. It can be 60 degrees outside and I can have a sweat attack. It's so unpleasant.
Saturday I went out with my friend Ashley to take some photos. We went to Pon Pon Chapel, Donnelly Wildlife Management Area, to the Avondale murals, the Sheepman murals and then for a long walk downtown. It was so hot outside and I looked like a hot mess when we were ready to go home! I decided that there is no way I can date in the Summer because people will think I'm some crazy excessive sweater!! Not attractive!!
We also went to The Early Bird Diner in West Ashley which was once featured on Diner's Drive In's and Dives on Food TV. I have been there several times and always get the chicken and waffles, which are delicious. This time I decided to try something different and opted for the meatloaf with spicy chipotle glaze. The meatloaf comes with two sides so I got macaroni and cheese and collards. I'm always so hesitant with meatloaf - you never know what you are going to get. I was so intrigued by "spicy chipotle glaze" that I decided to go for it. omg!! I was not disappointed in the least. It was delicious! There were two pieces of meatloaf that were topped by some of the best onion rings I have ever had. I think they were made with sweet vidalia onions. Sooo good! The mac n' cheese was fantastic. I sprinkled the collards with pepper vinegar and they were out of this world! It's definitely my new favorite! I wish I had the recipe!!
