Na, I'd just say flattering. John is a sweetie!

Barb, you're a champ for dealing with the challenges of gluten-free food for your family. The more educated I get about food, the scarier it seems.

I haven't made it yet. The recipe I found called for corn flakes too which oddly enough, are not gluten free. Trying to find another recipe that doesn't require corn flakes.

I did make almond chicken though. Roasted, unsalted almonds, chopped. They stick to the chicken really well, even without eggs. Cook on pan with tin foil sprayed with Pam. Keeps the bottom side crisp. Whole family liked it!!

I can't make chocolate peanut butter balls -- because I would eat every one of them. Thanks, though! You just reminded me that I missed the report on the Captain Crunch Chicken recipe. How did that turn out?

My DH has grand plans too! I'm lucky though, because he gets sidetracked and forgets most of them. emoticon

I have a few chocolate peanut butter balls left if you want to come sample! Or, I will share the recipe if you are interested. Very easy or I wouldnt do it.

Oh how I feel your pain, Aurlie. I am always trying to be the voice of reason when DH wants to spend money on something. It's not easy and I'm sure I can attribute any gray hairs I have to his so called 'projects'.

Did someone say, "chocolate peanut butter balls?" emoticon

I could be productive and help you sample them,, Barb.

We ran a bunch of errands, today. I thought this would simply be a Thanksgiving for giving -- serving food and being sociable to the less fortunate. Unfortunately, Mike has decided we can also cook a Thanksgiving dinner for ourselves, too. Since he's still out of work, he's always coming up with stuff for us to do. That always translates into a whole lot of extra work for me -- not easy since I still have a full-time job of my own. It's impossible to just leave him to his own devices -- someone has to be the voice of reason and try to manage the costs of his projects.

I'm going to bed early tonight! emoticon

Hey there! It has been a productive Saturday for me. Started with a trip to the gym, then gathered my list and coupons and went grocery shopping. Had to stop at four different stores to get everything I wanted plus went to the library. After all of that, put away the groceries, out the turkey in the fridge to thaw and made chocolate peanut butter balls for Bunco tonight. Oh...and doing laundry. Get to start cleaning stuff tomorrow since we are hosting Thanksgiving this year.

Hope everyone else rested!

Hope everyone is having a nice Saturday. I'm resting after having a yard sale yesterday. Did ok with it ( see todays blog).
Just a few days until Thanksgiving. We have no plans for it since it's just the two of us. But I hope everyone else is going to have a super Happy Thanksgiving and be those you love.

LOL! Walking can be a dangerous pasttime!! I live on the edge! Watch me walk...and read...and not run in to anyone or anything!!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I can't read and walk at the same time. That's just an accident waiting to happen.

I read while walking through the halls at work to get iced tea in the morning, on the way to and from lunch, anytime I can! Plus I listen to a book on CD during the commute. Reading keeps me sane. Okay...relatively sane! Tee hee!

I keep my kindle with me all the time. Reading at lunch time gives me the break I really need. Reading in bed helps me relax and sleep. Reading while DH is watching sports helps me not to scream. Reading............well, you get the idea, I'm sure.

Good to see you check in, John. emoticon

The closest I've come to reading for pleasure lately is the Book Club at work. Right now we're reading "Reality is Broken." for a discussion next month.

I used to read about 10 fiction books a week.

I keep at least two books in the car, my iPad next to my recliner and a book on my night stand. I pretty much read all the time

There are days that I'm invited to really nice places for lunch, where someone else is paying, and I'd still rather read!

I get to read at lunch. If I don't, I get cranky. Pretty sad, huh? We all have our guilty secrets. emoticon
