anything going on? we're pretty dead around here.

I gave up soda for lent. I went 4 months without a soda and it didn't really matter and now I REALLY want one.

I didn't give up anything, but I rarely drink Coke/Pepsi/etc. I'd rather have iced tea or water

Nothing shaking here. My daughter is giving up grains and sugar for Lent, which is odd since we have never observed it before. As seen on Facebook.

I'm trying to drink a lot more water and have had nine cups today thus far. We're having turkey, cream of cauliflower soup, and mixed vegetables. (I got an immersion blender for Christmas so I sauteed some onion & celery, then added four cups of chicken broth and a head of cauliflower, chopped, to a pan. Simmered the cauliflower for about 30 minutes, then pureed, making sure to season along the way. Will add a small amt of heavy cream right before serving. Did anyone watch Worst Cook in America? Highly annoying contestants, but did enjoy the cooking lessons.)

I rarely drink soda as well. I prefer water or tea.

the soup sounds so good, Miss Tree.

My day at work was really different is about all that went on for me.I sure don't like walkie talkies and wished I could've shut mine off.

Nothing new here (such a surprise, I know), but I think Dennis is depressed. He hasn't felt good in months and the doctors can't seem to find out what's wrong. I think, he's simply bored; after going to the pharmacy every day for over 40 years, he hasn't adjusted to retirement as well as he thought he would. Having pain in his hips hasn't improved his outlook either.

As for drinkies-Diet Coke for me until 6 or so and then onto Liberty Creek white zin :)

I'd love an immersion blender. I watched Worst Cooks, I love Anne BUrrell (that's how I roll). I liked the 50s chick with the tats and the bangs

Oooo, nice low carb dinner you got there, Sonya!

I made a huge batch of sausage/cheese meatballs today, and will be having those for breakfasts, lunches and snacks for the foreseeable future. (The recipe yielded about six dozen meatballs!)
