Menus December 1 ~ December 7

It used to be only death and taxes, Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

Did any of you do any Black Friday shopping? Maybe its just because I am older now that I don't give a hoot about waiting in line for bargains.
Have a great week.

Nope, I don't give a "Hoot Nor Holler" about Black Friday bargains, but, amazingly enough, my friend back where I used to live, age 75 and with bad hip and knee issues, got up at 4 am and drove 2 hrs. with her daughters to go shopping!! She says she got a lot of stuff on sale, but the lines were murder, and the best part of the day was when they went out for a nice lunch!
I say she had more guts than I would have............:)

I don't remember any Black Friday's back in the 1960's or early 1970's, when I admit, I used to shop a lot, didn't have kids then though.

See you all tomorrow.

Nope, no black Friday shopping here either...can't stand crowds on a normal weekend shopping day, so really couldn't take this kind of holiday shopping.

broke my fast at 2 p.m. with biscuits, sausage, eggs, and a tad of jam for the biscuit...trop 50 for the pills...coffee fore and aft.

Mary do you drink any liquids during your fast time? Sometimes I don't feel the hunger but love to have my coffee with some cream in the morning. Was wondering if it was just a food fast you do on your DD?

Oh Sharon, could not start the day without my coffee. I can drink it black and have done so on some DD's, but I do like my creamer (read whole milk, now, but I used the nonfat half & half last year when I was losing so much and may go back to it on DD's. Has about the same calories as whole milk, but has higher carbs. I do have caffeine withdrawal so I need to break the habit, but not now...maybe later. Oh, and I also have a lot of water all through the day. I tried the protein drinks and may go back to 'em...we'll see.

had one cup of coffee when I got up and one more when I got back to the house after the trip to the family history center then

ate a lo hotdog and a bit of chili beans at 4 p.m. also a couple carrot & celery sticks

about 500 kcals..will probably have a small yogurt for another 100 later.
