" I have no romantic feelings about age," Katherine Hepburn once said. "Either you are interesting at any age or you are not. There is nothing particularly interesting about being old, or being young, for that matter."

Have a great week folks. :hiya:

That's a good remark, Loretta! I always liked Miss Hepburn........and Spencer Tracy.

Michele, was the Bundt cake you had from "Nothing Bundt Cakes" ??? We have one of their shops about one mile away...........;)

Sunday's foods DD
Just trying to stay low cal for a few days to offset the too-many up days...and staying busy to keep the "hungries" away..added another dinner to my schedule this week...oh well, it's the holidays.

had coffee before church and a small bag of popcorn at the Skechers' store. (I took Nadine and her daughter over to the warehouse store for their Christmas presents)

S. leftovers, a short rib with a bit of noodles, spinach souffle, and half a bake sweetpotato, decaf afterward.

600 kcals...dang! gotta get some of those mini-quiches (my designated contribution) for tomorrow's sisterhood dinner...anyone knows who stocks the best? Sams Club? Costco? ????? It's supposed to be an appetizer evening, so wondering what all will be there...I love small bites.

mykneesareback 12-15-2013 06:46 PM

Mary, I've tasted a little quiche but never bought any, but I'm sure any of those places that make them, it will be good!!! Even the store near us, "Market Street" makes good ones, they give out samples. I could make them my self, just too lazy since I'm the only one who would eat it anyway. Linda makes those, without a crust, spinach and so forth, they are a good idea!!

Was it warmer today where you are? Have a good night!

modon69478 12-15-2013 07:10 PM

Mary, I've tasted the pre-packaged mini quiches and thought them quite tasteless. If you have the time and the inclination, you could make your own using a mini-muffin pan. You can spice 'em up or down to your liking, add meat or not, and add different veggies and cheeses to your liking. I don't make them with a crust - just add a toothpick and you've got a nice light biteful of yumminess. Good Luck!

coffee in the morning...and a subway cold cut combo mid afternoon, diet soda

S. don't think I can remember it all as it was a bite or two of a lot of things...will try. chicken drumstick, a few boiled shrimp with a tad of cocktail sauce, a couple of tiny meatballs (way overcooked) in bbq sauce, one teeny cocktail weenie, a few of my quiche, baby carrots and sugar peas, and one tiny cream puff...a lot of protein, at least.

1400 kcals give or take a few

Thursday's food DD
Well, almost a down day..700 kcals so 'tweren't too bad. Dinner was really excellent and the elders enjoyed it, I think. Doris, in my church, the elders are usually young. I know, a contradiction of terms but "elder" is a position rather than a reference to age as in most churches. The elders are the young men serving their missions.

coffee, coffee, and a Special K breakfast thin about noon with crystal light for the pills.


Dinner at six...som tum (green papaya salad) and shrimp pad thai (a sweetish noodle dish), water to drink

more decaf
