That's a great quote, Loretta! Thanks for starting the thread for us

We don't do anything for St. Pats at all, not afraid to not wear green and get pinched, lol. Did they do that when you went to school?

We ate out today, breakfast, lunch and dinner............... Lots of veggies, but more than the normal stuff.

Sunday's foods UD

Well, I did move out of the house...went to the commissary and spent too much, again. I got a beautiful Porterhouse, and some boneless chicken breasts (at a real bargain) which I'll freeze up as cutlets, so my day will be busy tomorrow. Still I didn't buy anything I shouldn't have, except maybe the sushi which I'll have with my leftover cauli-rice tonight.

They just showed beautiful shots of the Aurora over Minnesota..one thing I loved about Alaska....oh my, so awesome.

B. Big one...2 eggs, 3 bacon, french bread grilled with a glass of Trop 50 for the pills and coffee with milk

Iced tea with lemon in the afternoon

S. sushi roll with cauli-faux fried rice, pinot grigio and may have a bit of lo fennel salad with pineapple if I have the room

1200 kcals

Mary, we put out tax refund check into the bank right away, too, coming from Calif. and all that, lol.

Change yesterday's dinner to salmon, peppers and green beans and onions, sautéed, unsweet tea.

Hope to be back tomorrow after the first house look see.

I know I shouldn't use food as a reward but I did...had a great breakfast to make up for the get-up-and-go morning.

B. coffee/cream, bacon & eggs, hash browns and rye toast with jelly, and a few ounces of orange juice...sigh! It was so good as it was delayed

s. apple fritter and black coffee at the casino and a couple of diet sodas

S. Porterhouse steak (yep! I ate the whole thing...eight ounces) with a butter/red wine deglaze of the pan with mushrooms, french bread toasted, a bitof fennel salad, half a cucumber in vinegar and a half glass of merlot (bottom of the bottle)

back in a bit with the kcals as I've yet to track it...(cart before the horse...it's been that type of day)

1700 kcals

Looking forward to those strawberries!

At the usual boring stuff at the motel for breakfast, and several coffees.

Having celebratory lunch/dinner later this afternoon, and no regular dinner tonight. Drinking lots of iced tea though.

Enjoy your day! Hope that cold leaves you soon, Loretta!
