I just got in from a Dinner Night with ten old friends from N.J. They ate like it was their last meal. I don’t get it. They ate triple or more than I ate and are not gaining NOTHING not one pound. All I have to do is think about the food and the weight comes on. Some things just ain’t fair.

I’m not exaggerating one bit it was a disgrace how much they ate. I kept quiet and stayed with the program. Brought my meal home in a tray not in my belly. Damn!

Hmmm.......sounds like you went out with a bunch of Italians like my husband's cousins - man, can they put away the food.

But here's the thing, you stuck to your plan - you did it! NOTHING better than that AND you have a second meal for tomorrow, so who really won? You, not them.

FW finished off her book. Once I get near the end NOTHING can (or can't) make me put it down

I find the older I get the less I can eat (and drink ). The portions are ridiculous and I do end up bringing some home. NOTHING but another curse of getting older, slowing metabolism.

At least Mrs. FW I got to have Eggplant Parmigiana for breakfast and can’t even stand the thought of eating the pasta that came with it. Where is the Pepto? Lol.

I did eat some real garbage for desert, funny but I always have room for desert. I guess it was a compromise yesterday and a win today because I’ll be fine till dinner.

Eating properly is a true war. NOTHING IS EASY NOWADAYS!

Truer words were never spoken. I do NOTHING but love eggplant and have a recipe from Tomwed for it that I really like.

2 eggplants diced
5 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion chopped finely
4 clove garlic sliced
1 teaspoon sea salt
5 large tomatoes – skinned and deseeded
2 tablespoons tomato purée
1 cup water
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 tablespoons fresh mint – finely chopped
1 can cooked chickpeas – drained
PREPARATION
Add the eggplant to a large baking tray and toss them in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Roast on for 30 minutes until browned.
Add the remaining oil to a large pan and add in the onion, fry on a low to medium heat until soft and slightly browning. Add the garlic and cook for a further few minutes.
Next add the tomatoes, tomato purée, paprika, eggplant, and chickpeas. Cook for approximately 20 minutes. Add water if needed. Finally season with salt and the fresh mint.

The library check-out desk is like a stand up desk. I spent most of the day there fixing computers, doing research and answering questions.
When I got my house it seemed right and I couldn't put my finger on why.
About a year later the light bulb went on.
It's the same as the library--the wood is the same, the counter the same, even where I stand at the island is the same. You think that would have occurred to me sooner.
That's the kind of nothing story I like to write out.
