Morning Elston-never could find it in NJ-but it's a regularly available cut out here-it is excellent as a pot roast.

Southdown, that bug looks gosh darn cute BUT I bet you don't think so Get well soon...

Well, everyone seems to be doing alright today.... Hopefully we make it through the day 100%... it is my Grandmother's 80th birthday party- a total surprise she has actually been working on with my aunt. My uncle has flown in from Hong Kong, her bro is in from Atlanta, all of her neices/nephews, kids, grands.... she thinks it is just a HUGE (75+ people) coming to hang out.... She even ordered a birthday cake for my uncle and cousin!!!!! Everyone is coming for her.... like 75 people would be flying in to just come for a weekend event for no reason LOL She is so funny.... TONS AND TONS of food.......I am making my Low Fat Crab cakes from Oprah's old cookbook IN THE KITCHEN WITH ROSIE.... they are very good and I can post the recipe later if anyone wants them.... And same garlic bread with Caponata (my favorite and quick and easy after the crab cakes)..... But it is and IRISH family gathering so there is going to be SPIRITS a plenty and sweets and food until the cows come home.... we may not be Italian- so it isn't tomatoes and cheese- but one thing I have learned being married to one is we do a lot of things alike!!!!! I am looking forward to it and Hubby has been BANKING his WW points for tonight all along...... I am going to PARTY!!! LOL.....

Nomad.... Isn't today your family reunion? Have a blast.....

Elston, Good Job.... losing wt isn't fun and isn't easy... but it is rewarding....

Well, I am off to sip my coffee and then I must get started on those crab cakes.... still have to get Gma her gift... what do you get an 80 year old woman who has everything?

Skbs...photos are always a good bet. Maybe fill up a picture album of family photos? Those always go over really good with me!

Oh my elston! You have done wonderfully on this diet and healthy eating. I am so proud of you! Keep it up my friend!

Lacey, guess Mr. L "really" wanted his morning paper! Ha! He "must" be feeling better!

Is the beef arm roast also called an "O" bone? I loved those in CA but here in NC I can't find either an arm roast or an O bone! Just real basic roasts here it seems. Hmmmmmmm

Oh Cyn-he has to have his crossword!!!!

SKBS-sounds great and I agree with Cyn-photos.

Never heard of "O" bone-isn't it funny how different parts of the country are. This is boneless, lean and about 3" thick.

Good morning everyone. We are waiting for the sun to come out. We have to go outside and hook up our other 6 solar panels. Then we should really be producing some power with 12 solar panels and 2 wind generators. Woo hoo.

Haven't decided on dinner yet but I'm sure it will be edible, LOL. Maybe breakfast food or "brinner" as my step grandson(?) calls it.

Have a good day in the yard and take a nice hot bath tonight. Next year I am doing my first vegetable garden "ever" and I can't wait.

Lacey- stay warm today.

skbs- Have a great time at the party. It sounds wonderful. Thanks for the recipe.

The standard is cod, but there are also perch, walleye and a few others that are popular as well.

Today I am putting a pot roast in the oven with some rutabaga, potatoes, carrots, onions and celery. I'm also going to try a new recipe out for Irish Root Soup. I had it in an Irish restaurant in Green Bay a while back and absolutely loved it. I really hope it turns out as good as that one!

We woke up to a nice layer of snow this morning, so it seemed like a good day for some good comfort food. It's still snowing and the kids are out playing in it before it turns into rain later today as it is forecasted to do. My son already has a snowman made!
