Sue - when I read your post I had to go back and read it again. I then had to get myself to stop laughing. Let me explain and I am sure it is one of those language things again - the difference because of the sea between us.
In America - a joint is a rolled marijuana cigarette so when you said you roasted a joint my mind went in the wrong direction.
On the other side of that - I also roast, bake, or cook extra meat and make my own sandwiches with them.
Believe you can and your halfway there. Theodore Roosevelt
The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well and doing well whatever you do. Longfellow
Great article, hon - glad you pointed this out. While we may have heard a lot of it at one time or another, or while some of it may come down to plain ol' common sense, this lays it all out in once place, nice and clear. I'm bookmarking it, and I'll be sharing it with other people, too.
Thanx, Irish! :-D

At some time or other I do all those except drink the cals. I always have water or diet soda with no cals if out or weak black tea, no sugar in my drinks, not had sugar in tea since I was 16 Must make more effort. I always do best when I plan a week's meals and shop for that,and I try to make my own cold meat by roasting a joint and slicing it up, but sometimes I just grab a pack from a shelf thanks for posting this, real eye opener

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
