Just skip it if you don't want to chat about my food...LOL

Item one- Zumba at the town hall tonight for about 75 minutes. It was the biggest crowd ever. 15 or so. And I have taken to clapping and cheering with and for everyone. Five of the women there were sisters. What is that even about? It blows my mind.

Item two- I made some meatless white chili. I forgot to buy great white northern beans but had white kidney beans and they worked. I was smart enough finally to recognize that the recipe was too big. It couldn't easily be halved so I just bought the ingredients and eyeballed it. It did not taste too bad but between you and me- I'm growing a little weary of beans.

Greathusbandbob doesn't understand how brown sugar works. If it's in a container in the refrigerator for longer than 2 weeks, it's time for it to go. So tonights plan to make a baked Granny Smith apple with oatmeal brown sugar and cinnamon fell through.

And finally just to demonstrate my willpower of late, this is what I had to move aside to make dinner tonight.


Donuts and cookies. He has at least refrained from buying any ice cream kinds of deliciousness.

I had birthday cake to resist; mostly successful. One small piece when it was presented, another slightly larger piece several days later. And those doughnuts sat on the kitchen counter for a week; I ate exactly one.
