Happy belated birthday, Craig! 🎂

We are at my in-laws in MI. I brought several roasted chicken thighs and a veggie-filled pasta salad, so we'll have that and freshly made green salad with homegrown cucumber tonight.

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

Happy belated birthday, Craig! How did I miss it?

We had movie popcorn, and brought home an overpriced fruit plate from a local grocery store.

Two hard boiled eggs.

We were at a family function this afternoon that included a huge meal. Not hungry for more except for a bit of dessert.

I quartered a whole chicken and it's been in Jerk marinade getting ready for the grill.
I saved back some of it for basting.
SC made some spinach salads so we're set.

Happy belated birthday Craig!

HOT again today so I was wanting a nice cool salad, but something different from the past few days. I picked a couple of ripe tomatoes and found some bacon in the freezer, so ended up with a BLT salad topped with croutons and ranch dressing. Chopped fresh iceberg was the only green this time. Hit the spot.

A bowl of mango frozen yogurt will be dessert, after a couple of hours or so. Still full.

I spent 4 hours with a friend today priming my dollhouse. I didn't get anything to eat till 3pm, so tonight for supper, all I'm going to eat are a couple of pancakes. I won't be hungry for anything else.

Woke up with a really sore hip. You know, the one the X-rays and doctor said had no problems? Well, it hurt. Himself fished leftovers from the fridge and nuked up some frozen veggies. I had a bowl of Special K with fresh raspberries early, the had some good-old comfort food. Got my emergency can of Chef Boy-R-D mini raviolis from the basement. Don't judge...

Hope you had a nice birthday, Craig.

Easy, he doesn't list it on his member profile.
