It's been a cool september for us too. I am so glad, sometimes here in Kansas it's hot till November, well till October 31 to be exact, usually it's unbearably hot then Oct 31 it rains ALL day, and finally cools us off for "fall". Last year we had record breaking heat, three months straight of EVERY day being in the triple digits, mainly 115-125. And september was part of that three months. So I am glad we got relief this year, in fact this is the coolest september I ever remember. But, between moving and starting our first year of school, I am so grateful, cause I hate the scorching heat like that!

I am not sure why Jo never made up her own instant pudding, but I do know she didn't like to "make" things that she couldn't make better or easier. Like pie crust, she said she couldn't make them any better, any less calories/fat/sugar (and them still be good), or any easier, so she just never bothered with making pie crust.

Ann, It sounds like you're at the place where you don't need/want to lose any more weight. We've got two KOPS who are struggling to keep their weights above the bottom range of their goal weights. One had her goal lowered.

I've always wondered why Jo didn't come up with a recipe for sugar-free instant pudding, too. It must be whatever ingredient that makes it "instant" is pricier or not commonly found.

It has been a gorgeous day here. It's almost 7 PM and it's still 76 degrees.

Dog Gone it Lost my post

I agree that it doesn't seem like 1/2 of Sept. should be gone already. I don't like Sept. if we get the heat. So far it hasn't been too bad. Last night was nice and cool and great for sleeping.

Sarah, the mac and cheese was the main course along with some mixed vegetables. I had had a snack of pita chips about 4 so wasn't as hungry as I should have been. It doesn't take much to fill me up. Tonight will be hamburgers and black eye peas or beans for DH. Tomorrow we'll have warmed up mac and cheese as I have a late Dr. app't with my G P.

Patty, you must be getting some muscles from all that wood stacking. My grandfather on my dads side use to split wood as their house was heated with wood as well as their stove.

Jan, I'll have to reread my Help Me Cook Healthy. The one I referred to is The Wonders of Nonfat Dry Milk Powder. It has a lot of good hints and recipes in it too. Just a cookbooklet.

With the price of Jello and pudding mixes it is a lot cheaper to make you own cook and serve puddings. And they taste good too. I do like instant pudding too. I'm surprised Jo never came up with a recipe for the instant kind. I do refreeze f/f Cool Whip and some times more than once.

No plans for today. DH saw his eye doctor this morning as another follow up on the cataract surgery. He still has to use drops. So far the eyes haven't completely adjusted from the surgery. He has a hard time reading the newspaper comics section as they are printed very light. Driving at night with head lights coming at him is a bother also. Dr. said the eyes will adjust.

Neighbor has gotten his motor home out of his back yard. He must be going camping this week end. I envy him. I'm looking forward to a camp out next month that is in between my Dr. and chemo app't so I should be good to go.

Sarah, The rattouille sounds good.

The Cafe Au Lait bars were easy to put together. They need to cool completely but that doesn't take long. I like the way you cut them into 16 bars but a portion is two bars. Sometimes it just feels good to be able to have two of something. DH really liked them.

Hi Everyone

Overcast here today. We had maybe 1/2 inch of rain yesterday.

Jan I have looked ast the Cafe Au Lait bars for awhile now. Great loss Jan! You are on a roll!! Let us know how they turn out. Your dinner sounds awfully good. emoticon

My landlady brought me an eggplant today so it is rattouille time! One of my favorite dishes. So dinner is rattouille with couscous or rice. My mouth is watering. emoticon

Patty hope your camera gets in gear so we can see your projects. Love looking at all the pretty things you make. emoticon

WATER--YES
FOOD PLAN--YES
MOVING--SOME

Ann you made me start wanting mac and cheese. Alays such a comfort food for me. Do you have it as an entree or side dish? Mom always had it as a side but I like it as my meal.

Louise hope you and your family are doing good. Miss seeing you.

Great loss Judy! Way to go! Hope you got a good night's sleep last night.

Have a great day everyone! Do you realize we are almost half through September already?

Good morning everyone,

It's starting out to be a beautiful day here. Oatmeal is cooking and I'm sipping my second cup of coffee.

Today I will finish the diningroom. Also when I sat down this morning I looked through Cooking Healthy With A Man In Mind which I had set by my chair. I marked four stars by Orange Pecan Tapioca and if I have tapioca on hand I will make some. I'm also set up to make the Cafe Au Lait bars.

Dinner will be grilled chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans with the tapioca or bars for dessert. What's for dinner at your house?

Yesterday:
exercise - no
food plan- yes
water - yes

Patty, I am so looking forward to seeing your crocheted leaves. I hope you are able to get the camera to work. My camera is pretty easy although I don't know how to use some of the functions. I loaned our old camera to a friend who is doing the TOPS scrapbook. We went to get prints off our cameras yesterday and when we got to the meeting my camera worked fine but hers wouldn't take pictures and sent a message "set the date" which, when you're ready to get a picture in the meeting, you don't want to sit down with instructions to learn how to do!

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Jan
