Good for you. Stay on them and don't let them get away with anything. After all it your dues also that keep that club going. Sounds like that is a very special club that has a lot of meaning for you. Otherwise you wouldn't be fightiing so hard to get things in order.

Have you given yourself a treat for all you have accomplished? For every ten pounds you lose, treat yourself. It doesn't have to be something expensive or big. Just something that makes you happy and you don't ordinarily do or have.

The snow outside is truly beautiful...until you have to drive in it! We got between 8 and 10 inches of heavy, wet snow. The snow plows are out, but they focus on the main roads and not the residential streets. Of course, you need to get out of your neighborhood to get on the streets! Oh well, slow and steady. I'm going to hole up with netflix til I have to go to work.
Could you send some of that heavy wet snow my way? We sure could use the moisture here.

I just harvested my cherry tomatoes from the basement. I pulled the plants up by the roots last month when we had a frost. All the little tomatoes were green. Now they are all red and ripe. I didn't believe it would work, but it does! I tried to just cover them but the wind was too strong. Lesson learned.

You don't know what you are asking for. We get a different type of snow in the east than you get. We get the heavy, wet, icy snow. So dang hard to shovel. You get the nice fluffy kind.

Nice, Chopper! I picked all my cherry toms green prior to the freeze, put them in a bowl, and by now they've all turned red. Once I had such a prolific cherry tom in a pot, we brought it inside, and it produced till January!

What a busy morning!

I have made the tart shells, blind baked, baked and now they are cooling

I have got everything ready to make the chocolate ganache and the sweetened whipped cream

I have also cut up all the chicken and that is now marinading in the fridge

Have done all the dishes from this mornings cooking and swept and mopped the kitchen floor...now time for a coffee break
