Today was potluck.
My husband helped me with the cooking between last night, and this morning.
I made "American Chop Suey" - which is actually macaroni, tomato soup, plain tomato sauce, and cooked ground turkey.
And I made my 7 layer salad - lettuce layered with chopped celery, baby green peas, miracle whip and sour cream and topped with grated cheddar cheese and I cooked and crumbled 5 slices of low sodium bacon as a garnish on top.
I did not have any salad left to bring home afterwards, and only have enough of the pasta dish for our dinner tomorrow night. Yay!
I did not heap my plate, and ate sensibly. I ate some dessert, but was pretty sensible with that, as compared to past such events where I get drawn in so easy - one peanut butter blossom cookie - small, a small square of homemade cake, a tablespoon of an ambrosia made with no-sugar jello, cottage cheese, pineapple and mandarin oranges.
It was a good day, and I got to see two people at church services I haven't seen in a while. One of them it has been over 3 years!
Now - my chair beckons and is calling me to nap. Peaches the cat kind of looked at me like he expected me to bend too. I am heading that way. Work tomorrow. Need to rest up for the week.
Good thoughts and prayers, and working at positive thinking, and moving, and eating sensibly. One day at a time.
