Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
It was a weird busy-quiet day !!! :) I started my morning making my crab rangoon dip .. (those that have asked for recipes ..
I'm not a crab rangoon person, but if I must admit .. I had to taste it, (because the salt and pepper said "to taste" .. lol) .. It wasn't bad .. lol .. but I left Wendy take the leftovers home .. because it's good, but not a recipe I would be making for myself .. so why bring it home and be "forced to eat it" because it's in there .. and I still have problems with throwing away food .. lol .. We all have our struggles, I'm happy that that is as simple as mine is .. lol lol ..
I was sitting at the end of the table away from the dip, and Marilyn .. bless her heart .. asked me about 4-5 times .. "did you want it closer to you ?" . .. "No Marilyn .. I really don't care for it" .. .. "you're not getting any .. we should move it closer" .. "No Marilyn .. I really don't care for it" ... "Are you sure you don't want some ... ?? " .. "NO MARILYN .... I REALLY DON'T CARE FOR IT !!!" ..... "Oh .. I thought you were joking with me" ... "No .. I really really don't care for it !!" ... "but why ... it's good..." ... "Marilyn .. I don't care for it, when I've tasted them at the restaurants, it tastes like plaster of paris" .. "Oh .. you really don't like it" .. "that's what I've been telling you" ...... *rolling my eyes, and Wendy rolling on the floor trying not to laugh out loud*
I over ate last night .. I had some oriental salad which was yummy; and I had creamy cucumbers, I had 4 crepes with creamy chicken sauce; the crepes were thick like pancakes .. but it was delicious .. I had key lime pie which was more like key lime cream .. because Kathy whipped the Cool Whip .. I told her that she should have folded in the cool whip .. you can not "whip" cool whip, because it will seriously resort back to cream .. she said that the recipe said that you had to whip the cream cheese, and cool whip into the powder mix to get the lumps out .. and I said .. next time .. whip the cream cheese, and then blend in the mix .. after the lumps are gone.. then FOLD in the coolwhip until it's blended in .. It was delicious and fresh tasting but runny .. I told her that I am speaking from experience .. one of the luncheons that Paula had set up for the office .. I was trying to defrost the cool whip because we forgot it in the freezer .. by stirring it and it literally turned back into cream .. and she yelled at me furiously, telling me never EVER beat Coolwhip .. .. I ran out and got a new tub .. lol ..
Then the next thing I knew there was a "grasshopper" drink sitting in front of me ..*urp*
Yes -- I broke my "no ice cream during the week" rule .. and it was just a small glass .. and I drank it .. the straws were fun.. it changed colors for the coldness .. the other 2, turned blue, mine turned red .. How fun was that!!!!
Sooo .. that was my confession .. I was full coming home .. and while I slept good.. my belly is fussy this morning .. because I over ate last night .. The good news is it's pretty much done .. lol ..
Now the PLUS side to yesterday ..
I physically went to the gym yesterday afternoon and spent an hour ... a WHOLE hour beating myself up !!! I did ab work, I did leg work, I did arm work, and I did cardio work ..
I did the whole hour... sweating profusely .. and felt great !!!! and I could wear my soon to be stinky clothes; and know I could come right home and jump in the shower .. That was SUPER AWESOME !!!!
I was riding the Unicorns!!!!! I was on an endorphine high !!! and it felt GREAT !!! (plus when I went there weren't many people there !!! lol and I beat myself up well !!!! :) ) and after all that I ate last night; I knew it was going to be a heavy dinner, but never anticipated how it was .. While my scale definately went back up .. I'm thankful that at least I got that hour in !!! :)
I contacted the Inn at Pine Terrace yesterday and asked the InnKeeper; if they had elevators because I'm seriously thinking of asking mom if she wanted to go for an overnighter.. She made mention that she would like to see the inside .. and no .. they don't have elevators (didn't think they would), but he said they have 2 rooms on the first floor, and while the restaurant was on the lower level, he would be happy to deliver it to our room ..
So I figured I would stop in and see .. is it the first floor .. upstairs from the lobby; or is the first floor as in the same level as the lobby ?? that is the question .. Mom can't handle steps well .. so maybe when I'm thinking of taking advantage of my gift certificate; I'll swing by before hand and take a look see .. :)
Today is a road trip with happy hubby .. We're going up north for a grand opening, and staying there for the night .. :) EXCITED !!!! He's giving me until 10 before we leave, but tomorrow's blog will be a short one from the road .. :)
I am so excited for today .. I'm going to have lotsa fun !!! :) there are giveaways, there are parties, there are snacks .. I'm going to enjoy myself..
However, I think I'm going to try my antibiotic with just a yogurt this morning .. I'm not hungry but have to take it with food .. and because I over ate last night, my IBS is on the curb .. waiting to step off .. and that could make for a fussy 2 1/2 hour drive .. eek !! but we're going to be good and take my medicine !!!! :)
I'm sooo looking forward to today, and the sunshine and blue skies are not squelching that !!! :)
Wishing everyone a wonderful day !!!! I'm going to have one !!!!!
