Everything sounds so good! We went to a cookout tonight. Frank had a hamburger that was grilled. I had a piece of BBQ chicken. Lots of salads and fruits. It was a nice evening.

I got some marinaded mozzarella at Costco with some Capriese tomatoes to share. It seemed to go over well. I may have found a new "OMG, I forgot to make something to take" dish.

i made a cheese, green,yellow, and red pepper omelet, used cheddar cheese. was good with half of a bagel.

went to temecula to see my daughter and granddaughter's new dog grooming business, i was very impressed. my son drove me and we took his fluffy white dog to be groomed. i was very tired when we got back, so lazed around and made a simple dinner.

I ended up getting back late and headed straight to see Dad, so I had supper with him - Chicken strips and gravy from Dairy Queen because I was getting Dad a hot fudge sundae for his dessert. Of course I had to sneak it into the freezer so the nurses wouldn't see it and then take it into his room after the meal - the blood sugar police would have been all over me! But Dad loved it....a lot more than I did my chicken strips and fries, sadly.

lol, good for you lp. i'm glad you're helping your dad to "live", not just keep on existing.

if i had to say that i had regrets in my life, 3 of the biggest ones would be concerning food with my "adopted" italian grandfather (my first gf's grandfather whom i became very close so i adopted him since my own grands had passed before i was born), and my parents in law.

in his last years, grandpa louis asked me to sneak him some locatelli, prosciutto, and sabrett hot dogs. his granddaughter found out and forbade me from getting it to him, throwing out the apparently poorly hidden package on the way to the airport more than once.

next, my fil asked me many times to stop working on his house, yard, and garden (all were in disrepair since he was sick) and come down to the vfw for a beer. i never did.

and finally, my mil sneaked deliveries of chinese and italian takeout when i would take dw out when we were dating. lol, she had it timed out so well that sometimes i would see the delivery truck in my rear view mirror as we were pulling away from the house.
dw found out that i knew about many of these times and made me swear to tell her from then on.

they all passed eventually, so i deeply regret not helping them to lead their lives as they wished, with small treats to enjoy along the way.

so, kudos lp. you're a good daughter to care so much, and give him those little things that mean so much.

Thanks, Bucky, that means a lot. When he started coughing later I wondered if I had really done him a favour. But my Dad has had a long life and I know how much a small sundae means to him. He was truly grateful and lapped it up like it was gold. I think he actually enjoys it more knowing he shouldn't have it!

But don't beat yourself up. You did what you could and I am sure they knew it. And remember, I am the daughter here - in your cases you were "caught" by the daughter/granddaughter who were just protecting their elders the best way they knew how. You just wait for the day when your son sneaks you that sundae (or whatever the contraband) and you will know that your kinds ways have been passed down.

Never had a complaint yet.
I made a pizza that looked similar to that awhile ago.



Mark had leftovers from the beef/rice soup. I made a vegie sandwich.. I'll post a picture later.
