Dan has had a hankering for turkey and stuffing. Me, I've had a hankering for 5 cup salad. So, I've got bread torn apart, onions and celery chopped and will be making stuffing later. A good friend of Dan's gave him a nice big package of sliced turkey breast, so while it won't be as good as if it had been stuffed IN a bird, it'll be good because even though I can't make a decent pie crust, I make darn good stuffing!
I've got my 5 cup salad made, except in my case it is a 4 cup salad. I use fat free sour cream instead of real sour cream and I leave out the marshmallows for extra measure. I have to! I weighed myself yesterday and I had gained 2 pounds!! Walking really IS the key to this weight loss!!! I hadn't been able to walk much last week due to the weather.
I DID splurge the past week, a bit. For one thing, I made lemon bars. The box said it makes 16 pieces. They lied. Well, I suppose if you were feeding tiny people you MIGHT get 10 bars out of it. We managed to get 8 bars! There are still two lemon bars left in the fridge, so that will probably be dessert later...and at least 3 hours before bedtime (we try to follow that "rule" too!).
It is official! Dan and I passed our background checks, I don't have to try to get fingerprints again on myself and we'll be Georgia bound around mid October.
The oil/photo that I'm publishing here is of the harbor in Manteo, I'm not sure if it is called Roakoke Harbor or not, but the Roanoke lighthouse isn't too far from where the boats were docked.
I tried to make it look like this painting was of the lighthouse at night. I'm not getting the hang of how to do some of these things yet. I already know I wish I'd spent more money and got a better graphics tablet, one that I can use my finger to be the paintbrush. I took this photo when we worked at Alligator River. I THINK it is called Corolla Lighthouse???
