Fortunately, I didn't break anything.

Unfortunately, I seem to have twisted everything! Right in my own house, too. I have lived in this house for four years now. You would think I could remember it is one step up into the kitchen! Oh my knees! My elbows! My ribs? Why are my ribs sore?? And my back! Ouch! All right, that's enough whining. On the bright side, I have solved the evening snack craving! Inspired by the beautiful (and tasty) vegetable trays and salad fixings my sweet daughter-in-law had at our Thanksgiving get together, I prepared some lovely veggies for snacking, and have some light ranch for dipping. When the evening tv urge hits, I get them out and snack to my heart's content. I honestly would not have traded them for a dish of moose tracks, and that is something! It is going to be well worth the effort of keeping some on hand and prepped. Unfortunately, the calories saved by last evening's healthy snacking were demolished by this morning's breakfast at ihop. You see, hubby dear takes me out to breakfast one a month, it's just something he likes to do. And I don't say 'no'. Unfortunately, I discovered that my ihop breakfast almost completely wiped out my daily calories! Fortunately,however
, we were both so full we had no interest whatsoever in lunch. We also went grocery shopping without bringing home a bunch of things we didn't need! So it all works out beautifully in the end, and if I do get hungryy, I have my nice crunchy veggies to fall back on.

    When you go to them ask for a to go container and put half in and then eat the rest. That saves you half the calories and you can have the meal another day. That is what I did when my late husband took me to ihop.
