Don't forget to go to church tomorrow morning and use that pretty voice of yours for the Lord!

Have a good evening! Big Smile!

smiley2 on 10/15/2006:
My DH and me usually act like an old couple in our 80's lol, or some days it surely feels like it. I think the most important thing is that you do, as a couple what makes you happy, even if its silly or not according to norm. I like the sound of that wings you had!

WorkingIt on 10/15/2006:
LOL, hopefully you and your hubby had a great evening together..doing whatever you enjoy. And congrats on the cars sold! I watched something with that Mr. T guy and he was at a car dealership trying to sell cars..pretty funny. He was doing the calls and saying "This is Mr. T" and everyone kept hanging up on him because they thought he was playing a joke LOL. Have a great day!!

hollybelle on 10/15/2006:
Hope you're having a good weekend. Keep up the good work. I go to bed early most nights! Rest is good for you. Keep us posted this week!

ok.. hello all.. went grocery shopping to say.. spent way to much.. but.. oh well..lol.. I got something to try today.. its called seafood mix.. has crab meat.. octopus.. muscles..shrimp.. and something else.. I am a little worried..lol.. but hey.. I will try anything once..lol. ok not ANYTHING..

if anyone has any suggestions on how to cook these things..lol.. please share it with em

Tomorrow night I am making lunch for work sat. gonna make Chili.. and a pumpkin roll for them.. I'll make my chili too.. for me hehe.. but Rick (the boss) always buys for us all every sat. so since he was kind enough to pay for out Motel this past weekend.. its the least I can do .. Him and his wife are such good people.. ..

so tomorrow night, I will a busy bee hehe.. but I'll get in here.. .. I hope..

I am freezing here tonight.. it was 30 degrees here in Indiana this am.. and now they say a freeze advisory tonight and possible snow flurries.. I am so NOT ready for this... I want fall to hang around awhile..lol.. just a tad bit chilly at night and in the 60s during that day.. that's not too bad.. but freeze advisories.. that's NOT good.. .. but hey.. what can we do about it.. dress warmer.. right..lol..

for all of those who still have nice warm weather.. I don't like you any more.. just kiddin.. I still lub ya..

ok well, I guess I better get off here.. think I will go hind under the covers..

oh wait..my menu.. B.. 2 fried eggs..

L.. meat rolls..cream cheese.. onion powder.. chopped onions (1/2 a small one) garlic powder.. old bay.. all mixed up and put on some turkey ( like budding).. then rolled them up.. ate 7 of them.. ..

D.. spaghetti.. no noodles.. put the meat sauce over green beans.. not to shabby if I do say so myself..

no water at all today.. this is terrible..but I was too cccold... I know. no excuses !!!!..

work tomorrow.. talk to you all then I guess hehee.. I'll check in for sure.. hugs and sweet dreams !

oh Smiley.. I do have carbs hun.. just the good ones.. but yeah.. I don't have bread , unless its the kind I make.. so when I want a sandwich .. or lil pancakes.. or like the other morning, I made french toast.. all with bread made outta sour cream ( or cottage cheese , or cream cheese ) eggs.. cream of tarter.. but its great!!..

there are carbs in veggies.. but they are to good for you carbs.. :).. I try.. to stay at 30 or under a day.. :).. which if you really study up on all this.. it makes your calories down as well.. :).. then once you get close to your goal.. then you start to watch fats.. so all is good wiff me.. oh and sometimes.. I but lc wheat wraps.. that helps too when I want a bread.. but that's almost never.. after almost 2 weeks of eating this way.. I have no cravings.. not even sweets.. I so love this !!..

next I am gonna try a low carb cheese cake.. from the cheese cake factory.. the recipe is over in my low carb site.. I just gotta remember to go get it hehe.. I think that will be during the up coming Holiday :)..

hugs all.. I was gonna go curl up in bed to get warm.. but I need to read up in here.. I was gone all day .. well most of it.. lol.. hugsss

Hey monet!

That seafood mix sounds awesome. Did you buy it frozen, just curious! If it were me, I would probably make either a pasta dish out of it (like seafood linguine or Cajun seafood pasta), a seafood scampi dish, or just simply sautee them with a little garlic butter. If you went the pasta route, you could probably eat the meat without the pasta while family enjoys it with pasta. If you need ideas, you can always search www.allrecipes.com for seafood recipes.

Man, Im hungry now! :o)

Stay warm!!

Moody on 10/13/2006:
I've had it all except the octopus; so let us know how it tasted!!

Congratulations on the loss too!! Good for you!

So glad to see you back...I was wondering where you were...then I thought you must have still been on your trip....so glad you are back now...so nice of your Hubby to get you back online!!!!!

Sounds like you are doing really well!

Is kettle corn popcorn? Is it low carb? Please let me know on this! I tried some kettle corn one time but it was sweet and sour and I didn't like that...anyway, I haven't had popcorn in a good while. As much as I like sweets, you'd think I'd like sweet and sour popcorn...I think it's the 'sour' I don't like....cause I used to love cracker jacks, which are sweet popcorn.

Anyway, welcome back! BIG SMILE!!!!!

smiley2 on 10/12/2006:
It amazes me how you are able to stick to your diet without carbs! I really admire you, cause no matter how hard i try i just have to have a whole wheat bun or something in a day, i wish i can shake off that habit!

Oh and PS: Most X's never "see" if you lose weight, well they do notice, but they wont say anything because they are jealous big time lol! So you go girl!

sweetpea1977 on 10/12/2006:
Im glad you are ok! Looks like you are doing just fine without us....but please done leave! LOL :o)

And congratulations on the compliments from Beth and the ex. You rock!!
