    vegetable and lentil gratin, which sounds very healthy. It was
    also slathered in cheese sauce, which itself was slathered in
    buffalo sauce.

    Like some of those "healthy" salads I made myself before the diabetes diagnosis.

    Buried somewhere between all the meats, cheeses and dressing, there was a little lettuce and a few tomatoes here and there.

    Only edible if you cook the pasta just right; boil it too hard or 30 seconds too long and it's a glutinous glob of gastric goo.

    Lunch was a nuked bean & cheese burrito, potato chips and a cup of vanilla ice cream for the kid,
    thin sliced bologna w/ pepper jack cheese on a whole wheat tortilla, 2% cottage cheese & a sugar free lemon lime jello for me.

    I had pasta with meat sauce, some Parma's ham with Russian salad and a very good Tiramisù cake.
    Tomorrow is gonna be all light. I definitely ate too much yesterday and today.

    Last night we ended up having burgers on the grill with all the extras. (Mine was less extra than theirs)

    Gonna be 84 today and I still haven't hooked up the swamp cooler, so I'm taking my show out to the shop with the refrigerated air and will mesquite grill some chicken.
    I'll also see if my solar power station Jackery thing will run the computer out there, it's 500 watt/hr and the comp has a 300 watt power supply. If possible I'll run the monitor too, that's about 50 watts. I'll hook up the solar panel and see how that offsets the load. See if the thing will run the 25-year-old mini fridge, and maybe even the a/c. Should be fun.

    The chicken was so good; best ever! and I have a breast left over for mesquite chicken tacos

    The power station will indeed run my old computer and monitor - together they averaged only 100 watts load, but gaming or converting a video would bump that way up. and it will only run it for about 4 hours at 100w.
    It will not run the a/c or mini fridge, these both have a power use jump when the compressor comes on that exceeds the rating of the power station and it turns itself off.

    It would run the computer for much longer if the sun is out, but it was cloudy yesterday and I only got about 20 watts of solar charge.
    Solar is problematic even though I live in one of the sunniest places in the US with 280 sunny days/year. To be workable for an off-grid home I'd have to have a buttload of solar panels and a HUGE amount of battery storage - tens of thousands of $ in panels and batteries and equipment.
    To power the stuff you need at home - a/c, fridge, washer/dryer, forced air furnace, anything with an electric motor etc., it's big solar money, and it's inherently undependable due to wintertime and cloudy days.
