    Thanks for the birthday wishes! It was a good day, a quiet day. I celebrated by making a grilled cheese sandwich with whole grain bread and two pieces of Linder dark chocolate. So yummy.

    I did not weigh this morning, poor sleep and wanted to give those treats a day to leave my system. I'm finding if I suspect a food will impact me with inflammation, I just wait a day and it's gone. Much more peaceful than suffering through steak or chicken thigh days.

    Linda, I head out around Feb 11th I think. We are going to the StartUp Grind Conference (a Google thing). Goal is to connect with the bigs and whales to see if there's an interest to support the Innovation Center we are presently building.

    Enjoy Saturday - I'll be watching the UNC Louisville game and making baked chile rellenos. We may get a little snow tonight so I am pumped! Even a little bit puts a smile on my face :-)

    Tracy - glad you had a nice, quiet birthday. When I first read your post, I thought you put the chocolate on the grilled cheese LOL!

    So you'll be here a week after my trip, darn. I read up on your conference. That sounds pretty exciting, and right up your alley! Hope you rub elbows with the right whales to get your Innovation Center funding.

    We've got sunshine and dry weather forecast for Saturday and Sunday and rain, pretty much all of next week.

    Enjoy your game watching and chile rellenos!

    We got snow!!! Just a few inches, but it's super pretty.

    welp, my team lost by a bunch - but it's not March yet! I decided not to make the chiles, had some chicken thighs instead. I'll whip them up today. I'm trying to fudge the recipe so I don't use cornstarch to fry them. I'm thinking a little almond flour and egg whites?

    I'm up over my window which means after yesterday's chicken, I must have been up a lot! Could be the immunity impacting those big swings too. I have a couple dishes from P3 that I can enjoy and see a drop on the scale. Plan is to reintroduce them for the next few days keep my fingers crossed.

    I also need to get off my butt and walk more and start up with my light weights.

    Hope everyone's favorite team wins today! Football, fake fireplace and kitties. I'm pretty much in heaven :-)

    Girl, you know I love me some snow :-)
    I stand corrected, should've added that to my TACL credo...

    Hi Tracy,

    Try crushed pork rinds as "breading".

    We missed out on the storm, it was south of here. But I have the cats, coffee and fireplace. Plus new entertainment for the cats: I am seeing much better but still favoring my right eye. So I am knitting a sweater to challenge my eyes to work together. But the kitty-crowd goes wild! I MUST be doing this fascinating activity for them! We have had a couple of "discussions" and they have now calmed down, but tomorrow's another day. The sweater body is knit "in the round" and it's 7" long already, so hopefully I can finish it in a week.

    I'm over my window but still fitting clothes, looking OK, so maybe I just need to accept it for now.

    Happy Sunday

    Lynne

    Lynne, I have tried pork rinds before but for some reason the taste is very offputting. Could be the brand I bought. I would imagine some are better than others.
    Still haven't made the chiles! Had a hankering for mashed cauliflower instead.
    My daughter came over yesterday with a homemade birthday cake and I enjoyed a piece (chocolate chocolate!) and I'm up 3 lbs this morning. Oh well!
    County is on a delayed opening this morning, so I'm enjoying a quiet morning at home, waiting for my neighbors son to shovel the drive and clean off my car so I can head out. He makes a killing in this neighborhood! We got around 4 inches here, very pretty!
    Have a great day everyone!

    Happy Monday all TACL lovelies!

    Had a quiet weekend, but got lots of work done - stuff that needed doing, so now I can cross it off my list. Still up above my window this morning, but my larger jeans are getting more and more baggy, so that's a good sign.

    I agree pork rinds for breading. The taste might matter by brand. I always end up with pork rind "dust" at the bottom of the bag and collect it for breading I like the Rudolph's brand, Southern Recipe, Dipper Style. They don't have a bunch of added flavors, in fact, they don't really have a flavor at all and are designed for eating with dips, like guacamole, cream cheese (my fav), or ranch dip and the like. I like them for the crunch factor. The bag actually has a recipe for Cracklin Skillet Cornbread. I haven't tried it since it uses actual cornmeal.

    Lynne - So good that your eye is improving. How funny that the cats thought you were introducing a new toy for them! Mine are both fascinated with shoe laces, so we have to be sure to tie our shoes when they are busy snoozing. We also tuck the laces inside the shoes when we take them off as we've been awakened a few times in the middle of the night by one of them discovering that we left them string to play with!

    Tracy - still celebrating your birthday with CHOCOLATE CAKE! Wow! Sounds much more fun than a steak day, for sure! 4 inches of snow sounds pretty tame and that's great that your neighbor's son does the leg work with snow removal. I find myself more and more willing to pay someone to do the physical work outside that we are just getting too old to do ourselves. I did the weed whacking the first year we moved here. It's a big job! The next year, I was already having hip pain, so DH did it. After that, we've hired it out to young men in the community. They earn some cash and we get our defensible space. Win-win.

    Hope you all have a great week!

    Good evening TACL,

    Thank goodness my eye is getting better - basically the retina specialist saved my sight. But I haven't seen the bill yet - the claim they submitted was over $2,000 of which I paid $380 at the office. Not having health insurance (or a job) makes me anxious . . .

    Linda, I make sure my shoes are put away behind a closed door - my older cat chews the shoes as well as the laces. He got to my knitting once, chewed through the yarn, not sure what his next move was going to be. I had visions of him eating a length of yarn, then what? puke or poop or both? Ick!

    I am so with you re: hiring work out. I live in a site condo and the HOA does the lawns and snow removal. I have taken to hiring out big painting jobs too - there is nothing worse than weeks of drop cloths, taping off trim, dirty brushes, etc. And moving: I am good with packing, but I hire guys to load / unload. My knees can't take hauling heavy stuff up / down stairs.

    Tracy, I would add spices to the crushed pork rinds. But it might be better to mix with Parmesan cheese.

    Parm cheese sounds good, I may try that. For a chile dish, some other kind of hard cheese might taste better. I'll have to investigate!

    Down a lb from my bday cake spree. And I exercised yesterday! (I think an angel got its wings...)

    My son called last night, he's had enough of Nashville and wants to come home. I'm in agreeance, this was too big of a move it seems. He lived at the beach summer of 2017 and did great. This go round has been not so great. So we have stuff to figure out! No more peeing with the bathroom door open :-(

    My cat Moxie likes to dig into the basket on my nightstand. She knows it'll wake me up so I will feed her at 3:30am. I am so well trained, aren't I?
    Lola will dig in the tool box whenever I leave the lid open, she paws out nails and screws and chases them across the kitchen floor.

    TACL 4ever! Have a great day all!

    Hi Tracy,

    Glad you are back down. I am not, I'm going to maintain at this weight a few weeks then consider what to do.

    When will your son be back? What type of work does he do?

    Got good news today - my travel insurance ha approved full payment of my claim for canceling my ski trip.

    Cats . . . My Romeo (13 lb blue mackerel tabby) is chasing those white bugs again - he jumps at the window, bats it with his paws - the snow is really light and fine, not sticking yet. Temporarily lost interest in yarn, TG!

    Happy Tuesday,

    Lynne
