The nomac and cheese was good. I'll see if I can find which post # she has it listed under. Update: She has a link to her blog's recipe on Post # 482.
We had a wind storm the day before yesterday, so when I went walking to the library, I found dozens of pecans rolling in the gutters. I scooped them up. I don't take from people's lawns, but gutters, I think, are fair game. I guess it made me think of one of our neighbor's comments on the subject, though, because I dreamt of him last night, and not in a good way. He was harrassing his estranged wife in the dream, and I was frantically trying to figure out where she was, so I could send the police. Weird. Not the kind of dream that promotes restful sleep.
Getting together with a friend today, and starting my Christmas shopping, both activities which will be made so much easier by having a car! Yay. I'm so thankful for it.
I'm still learning stuff every time I watch 'Fathead' so I think, S:TBT will be the same. There's only so much I absorb at a time. And he throws a big chunk at you.
Updates: I found the Christmas album. Too late to show Girlfriend cute pictures of Eldest, but at least it is not lost. More than half-way done with the first Owl mitt for Middlest. The rain fly did not work. The windstorm ripped it down and collapsed the tent. So yesterday we set it up again to let it dry out. :)
The day after the end of the world is upon us
Best end of the world ever: we're all still here! :)
Here's how I spent my last day:
Up at 5:30
12;30 salisbury steak with
1C nomac cauliflower
1C sweet and sour red cabbage
4:00 iced coffee with
2T cream and stevia
1C chicken salad with grapes and pecans(very few)
shoestring french fries with
Water: 12 glasses
Bed at 9:30
There was much shuttling of children and Christmas errands yesterday, so I'm not surprised I didn't get in any dedicated walking. Today my Honey and I are doing the Christmas shopping together, so I will have a lot of 'wandering walking', but that's hard to keep track of, so my official number for today might still be 'none'.
The meals yesterday worked out a little strange. I was quite hungry by the time I ate lunch, and made sure I ate enough to really be FULL.
Then, when I met my friend at the cafe for writing and gab, I wasn't really hungry. I ordered the coffee, and after a little bit, the food, because I wanted to order something that I could sort of pick at. (And yes, chicken salad and fries were the best option on the menu, unless I ordered two entrees. Funds did not permit. The chicken salad was a sandwich, but I had them leave off the bread.)
The fries were delicious; nice and crispy. I made them last at least an hour. The chicken salad was okay, but nothing special. I ate it because it put some protein and fat in my belly to keep the fries company.
I was a little concerned that the fries might set me up for munching later, but I stayed full until I went to bed. I wanted to eat something at home as an ACTIVITY, but since I wasn't hungry, I refrained. (Victory! After all, how often has not being hungry stopped me before?! Let's just say, it is not a common occurrence.)
The first Owl Mitt is almost done. Just need to do the thumb and finishing. I think I will get them both ready in time for Christmas.
Bless you, Auto-Save. My machine decided to reconfigure regardless of what I was doing. I'm so glad the forum has that function!
My mother-in-law sent us a box of shortbread. I managed to not eat ANY of it. :)
