Morning Vicki,
I will save those nuts for next time. I just got back from a short walk today. Still recovering, from the Eagle escapade, I am still sore, but getting better.
Be very careful out there, I was slipping on our driveway when we had our snow. Molly better be a good girl.
Beautiful breezy morning here today. It is suppose to be in the 60's, perfect for me. Still trimming our trees.
Happy walking with Leslie. Have a wonderful Sunday emoticon emoticon

Thanks for the goodie! I am happy to see the scale number go down, even if just a little!
Congrats on your weight loss! Keep up the good work!

Good morning!
My whoopie pies turned out nicely, though next time I'll buy already shelled pistachios, or else think far enough ahead that an assistant can shell them.
What a drag about the beet chips. I was looking forward to that project's report. I love roasted beets in salads, and that beet-goat cheese combo is indeed a classic. Couple of weeks ago I added roasted beet cubes to a cold soba noodle salad, along with white beans and a fresh dill dressing. It was a Polish style soba. Surprised at how well the combo worked.
I'm so happy to see that you've commited yourself to a romantic interlude, mid winter. It's important to nurture our marriages that way. Just think of it as setting a good example to your children and grand.

Thanks for the goodie last week teammate! Like you, my focus is also on making healthier food choices. This is a more problematic area for me than exercise. I hope you are having a great weekend! On to Auckland! emoticon emoticon
