Ha...an unintentional play on words there...? Get a smaller plate!

The project starts up in spring so I will no doubt be posting about it here at a later date.

DH and I just got back from grocery shopping. I love the discount veggie section. Each red bag is 99 cents, so we got all this for less than $5. I'm going to make pickled red onions and roasted bell peppers today. I'll freeze some of the peppers after roasting.

Nice haul, GG! The pickin's on our discount shelves never look that nice. Heck, some of the veggies on the full-price shelves don't always look that nice.

Last dinner of vacation is always bitter-sweet isn't it.

Yes it is. It's also one of the only times we have been out alone this year so it will be very pleasant.

Safe travels back, Andy. Lucky that you were able to sneak in your flights down and back between weather events.

******************************

I'm headed upstairs to clean out the hallway linen closet. If I'm not back on DC anytime soon, send the dogs to find me.

Wish me luck, friends. I get to have another procedure today. There's a growth on my kidney (not identified as the C-word) that will be frozen in place, starting very soon. Should be in a room by noon and DH will be bringing me lunch. I'm severely coffee deprived right now. Hope your morning is more fun than mine ;)

Hope all goes well for you. You'll be sipping coffee before you know it.
