Keep us posted as to how you are keeping fed. I'm sure it will be useful for those having to make do.

I hope you are enjoying the whole moving process. It's so exciting finding out where stuff goes. I envy you.

How's the eye and your stitches and other injuries?

I am draining yogurt for tzatziki, maybe smoking something.

My stitches have been removed and the scab fell off so I'm going to have a scar on my nose. I'm still covered in deep bruises and my leg will take months to heal though it's not broken(Thank God). My left eye still looks like something from the Exorcist but the eye doctor says at the rate it's healing my double vision should be gone after the weekend. He got a real belly laugh when he found out that I was painting with double vision. Today we got the carpets cleaned and as expected the stains are never going to come out but they look much better and definately smell better. It will be quite a while before we can afford to replace the carpet. Thankfully the livingroom carpet is not bad at all. Dh and his 'boys" moved the shed today. That was quite a marvel to me. And it saved us a ton of money. Now though we still have a couple of bathrooms to finish painting I am fully ready to kick the moving into high gear. We have asked for help for next weekend to move all of the heavy stuff and I expect that Saturday will be our first night in the new place. I wish I could tell you guys how happy I am about this move. Dh would never move out of his easy chair if he had his choice. I would move every year if I had mine. It's going to be so good to be in a real home again instead of in this crudy, nasty old "mobile home". I can't wait for my first chance to cook in my new kitchen. I haven't planned the meal yet but I want to make it special. Of course Dh would love to have something like fried chicken and mashed potatoes with canned corn but I'm sure I won't be able to leave it at that. Well, maybe I will just to thank him for finally consenting to buying a house!

I hope it works.
This guy is using a Webber Charcoal grill, but I ended up using my gas grill. I am about 1 hour into it right now, and just mopped the ribs.
Thank you chopper.

Takeout pizza! Well done, extra thin, crispy crust. They did it right!

Perfectly grilled steak, potatoes (grilled in foil packet) steamed peas and carrots and steamed beets. All the veggies were from the garden. Yum!
