Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures

I headed to the gym this a.m. only to discover the Toyota was completely iced over. I couldn't find an ice scraper and so used my military ID. ::snort:: The roads were a bit icy but there were no other drivers out so all in all it was an easy drive.

I made yogurt (and not sour milk) again. I doubled the honey and vanilla this time and won't do that again. I think I'll try Agave Nectar next time.

I was finally trying to come up with a dinner plan an execute it when I got two calls....JB Auto and Mike. Off I went to meet Mike and pick up our van.

It was 5:30 when I got home, Mike was stopping by the hospital to visit a few folks...and I still had the dinner problem.

I remembered that I had one last bag of spaghetti sauce in the freezer....and I had ordered a case of shells from co-op last month. I was a bit perplexed at why they had to be stored in the freezer.


Well - this will make a quick meal. BTW even ORGANIC freezer meals taste bland and yucky....but it was dinner....and I was desperate. I am STILL looking for big shells that are whole wheat or whole grain...any ideas? Not stuffed, dinner type shells - just the shells so I can stuff them myself. I would love to find the same thing in manicotti pasta.

It was wonderful to have Mike home tonight. He's been working some long hours preparing for a big inspection on base. We took advantage of having him home. I challenged them all to a game of Sorry and was promptly trounced.


School - lots of table school was done. A bit of couch school (I fell asleep).

Choosing Joy!
