That has happened to me several times. I am just glad you are back. Nell I have looked at some of Blue Apron's recipes, but have not tried any. I have a friend with a busy schedule and two small children and she and her husband swear by it. Rita I am not in a hurry to eat clam chowder for quite awhile.

A neighbor was telling me about a meal delivery company called Blue Apron. She and her husband used to travel the world taking cooking classes, but after his death she couldn't bring herself to plan and shop just for herself. She said she found herself eating popcorn every night. Blue Apron delivers the components of a meal and a recipe, not heat and serve meals, so she is cooking again and finally eating well. She is very thin and can't afford to not eat, and she told me that Blue Apron is perfect for someone in her position. I'd never heard of it. Personally I love the planning and shopping, but I don't know how I'd do if I were alone.

Exactly, Nell. Truthfully, I don't know how long I was "away". I feel as though I have been cooking for myself a little more often lately. I bought chicken and stowed it in the freezer so I can grab a breast and defrost for a dinner. It is working for me. There is a lot you can do to a simple chicken breast, with little effort.

They do all start tasting a lot. Everyone gets one wooden coin to cast a vote, and you do not know who is the contestant. I went to people I knew and asked which ones they liked and those are the ones I sampled.

I would hate to have to judge a chowder contest. After awhile they'd probably all taste the same.

Another sunny but cold day. People seemed to like the coffee hour food I made, and there was only a little bit of the fruit left. Tonight we are going to a chowder cook off for the local maritime institute. It should be fun. All the restaurants and a few individuals make chowder. Those attending get to vote the best of several categories. It is at 4pm so that will be dinner.

It is a pretty day, but cool. I have to do food for the church coffee hour. Thinking anglefood cake cut to three layers, light cream cheese and lemon curd forging topped with lots of fresh berries and mint, then make a quiche, and three melon poppy seed salad. Dinner will be turkey sausage and pepper sandwiches. Hope everyone has a great day.

Today the pools open with the temps barely in the 60s. It was over 90 last week and will be over 90 next week, but right now I am running the gas fire.

Can totally relate to everyone's frustration with the cold weather. It is cold here too. Tonight I am making grilled steak and smashed new potatoes. This has been a long and difficult week. Tomorrow I am baking for the coffee hour at church on Sunday.

Chilly here, too, but the a/ tech is here for spring service so I can't cut the heat on. I turned on the fire on the porch to take the edge off.

My car looks so wonderful! I couldn't bear to take it out in the rain, so stayed in and did indoor things. It's going down to 45 tonight. I had the gas fire on the porch running while I was watching TV. Tomorrow is grocery shopping for the 3 day weekend. One of the great things about being retired is that I don't have to go into stores when the hordes are out of work and school.

It was also chilly and wet here too. I spent most of the day in my office. It is supposed to continue tomorrow. I am trying to figure out what to wear tomorrow. However we do need rain so I am trying not to complain.

I didn't get to eat much yesterday. I had oatmeal for breakfast, but only got part of my lunch salad when I got a call from the condo and had to run over, then straight down to Culpeper for my son's brewery test opening. By the time I got back I was in such stress pain I couldn't eat anything. My oatmeal this morning tasted extra good!!

Got my medicines, but one made me sicker than I was so I'm off that. Dinner last night was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I'm hoping tonight I can graduate up to scrambled eggs and toast.

Still feeling badly. We have two days of thick fog. I was to start two new medications, but the fog meant the planes didn't fly and that is how we get our prescriptions. Hoping they will get here tomorrow. Tonight a baked Yukon potato and a small, tiny, piece if sirloin steak for dinner. I guess it's not all bad. I have lost 4 lbs since last Wednesday. I do know this has not been a healthy way to drop the weight.

So I ended up really sick today. I am not up to cooking. So we are going out, and I can get a light appetizer. Then I'll cook what I planned for today tomorrow. I have a soar throat pulled some muscles with all the coughing. If I had to be sick this was the perfect day. It has been foggy and humid all day.

Sophie, I saw a news story about the pollen tsunami in the northeast, though we are getting it, too in the Middle Atlantic. Winter was so cold and long, then suddenly it was spring. All the plants and trees and grass decided to shed pollen at the same time. No bees needed.

Still suffering from allergies. Went to the mainland for an Indian cooking class. It was really fun despite my coughing. Several others were having similar problems. Stopped and picked up some groceries to take back. On the ferry now watching the fog roll in.

It looks like a another beautiful day. Getting ready to leave to head toward the ferry. I need to do a few errands. Then meeting DH for lunch at an oyster bar we like before going to get the 3pm ferry. Nell the people attending were really nice so that made the class more fun. The results were our lunch. The recipes were a cold pepper soup with a cilantro colli, a niscoi salad topped with grilled salmon, a mango, almond, romain salad with a raspberry vinaigrette, and a fettuccini primavera salad with procsutto. Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday.

Well yesterday was horrible with staff melt downs and drama. I left exhausted and got up this morning exhausted. Fortunately I am going to the mainland tomorrow afternoon. I need a break. Friday I am taking a cooking class on spring soups and salads. That should be fun. We will return on Saturday for a Kentucky Derby potluck. Tonight I am going to make a hamburger. Nell I hope you got your cards. Rita enjoy your Thursday.

Hubby complained about dinner last night. He doesn't like meat that he has to chew more than 5 times, but now he says he doesn't like meat that is cooked in liquid. Now he says he doesn't like cooked onions or bell pepper. The list of food he hates gets longer.

I'll be getting new credit cards in a few days. Soon I'll have to deal with the Costco American Express, which will be terminating next March. Amex has the most wonderful customer service, I'll hate to lose it. Costco will be using a Citi Visa.

Tonight was beans and rice. A nice comfort meal after a stressful day.

My Mastercard was compromised so it's canceled. It will be a week until they can send new cards, leaving me with just Amex, and not all places take Amex. So much for the super secure chip cards. It is Home Depot again that allowed my card to be stolen.

Quiche tonite. Son #3, his wife and the two little grandkids are coming for brunch tomorrow. I baked cinnamon bread today for french toast. I have 8 slices staling on a rack now. Homemade bread makes the best french toast; there are no preservatives so it stales perfectly. DIL is vegetarian and doesn't want the smell of bacon in the house, an enticing smell to me. Oh well.

I got back from my hair appointment at 4:30 and had to get to a meeting by 7, so I didn't cook tonight. The advantage of not having kids around! Hubby was on his own. I had a bowl of cereal.

It was a busy day, and never got lunch. My plan is to reheat some leftover tuna noodle casserole for dinner. Tonight when I went to leave the office, my car was locked. I never lock my car. I asked a co-worker to drive me to my place to pick up a spare key. When we tried to get there every access road was cut off as they had resurfaced the street. We finally moved the barriers so we could get on the street. It could be called extra and an unexpected exercise opportunity. I got the key, went back to the office, got my car, and when I got back, they had replaced the barriers again. So that was unexpected exercise opportunity number 2. Of course as we started out on our adventure it was lovely, but quickly it started to rain, and of course I didn't have a jacket. I guess May showers are here.
