Spent most of today getting ready for tonight. Dan did a pork loin on the rotisserie while I made a spinach salad. He also had veggies ready to go. Danielle, Gabe, Annette and Trent showed up on time but Larry and Nina were missing. About ½ hour later, Larry called and said the dish he was bringing was in the oven and they’d be here in about 45 minutes. By the time they finally arrived, the pork was dried and the salad was wilted. Dan quickly cooked up the veggies and we ate. Fortunately, Dan had made a good sauce for the pork so that made it easier to swallow.
The cake I made turned out fine. The frosting did too. However, I have lots of frosting left over. Its in the freezer. I’m going to have to figure out what to do with it. Maybe I can make a cake for some event – then we won’t be tempted to eat it all.
I did ok on the WW program today but not great. Fortunately, I was able to get a good walk in today so got some extra points to use for the day.
Dan, Gabe, Danielle and Larry sat at one table. They seemed to have a better conversation than my table. Nina spoke about the upcoming China trip and that seemed to be the only topic of conversation. Ah well, I think it went ok for most of the guests.
