Going out for dinner tonight at a local Inn. I'll have the pan seared sea scallops with maple cream drizzle, and DH will have is favorite braised short ribs and mashed potatoes.

Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!

I just made hummus, which we ate as a snack on hot naan.

I am making shrimp fettacine alfredo for dinner. I went to Sams Club this a.m. and they had the biggest shrimp I've ever seen (bigger than your fist) on sale. They are from Bangladesh, they look like shrimp on steriods. I got one pound of shrimp (onloy 6 large prawns). I made chocolate brownies last night, so brownies for dessert too.

Uncle Bob's fried catfish sounds wonderful. Curious about the "trimmings" - mac & cheese? kale? coleslaw?

I am not sure. I have a cold and nothing really sounds good. My current choices are: a bowl of tomato soup with oyster crackers or a baked potato topped with chili, shredded colby cheese, and onions.

Pizza for us tonight, home-made. That double chocolate cake with roasted blood oranges sounds awesome. Chocolate goes well with orange.

Taking it easy today. I thawed out 2 full plates that I'd made up from Christmas dinner so we'll have turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, bourbon sweet potatoes and buttered green peas.

For my dinner: stir-fried shrimp, Chinese cabbage with corn starch and rice.

Look around us, it is beautiful.
