I'm feeling some better. Thanks for all your well wishes. You don't know how much that meant to me.
Don't know about the rest of you but I really miss creamy salad dressing. So, I decided to figure out how I could have some that was light. And I'm not crazy about the bottled stuff. I discovered Carrabba's a couple of years ago and was addicted to their creamy Parmesan dressing. Went searching the web and found a recipe. So I tweaked it to make it healthier. You'll find the recipe here. Now if I could just figure out how to make my Mother's wilted lettuce dressing in the low calorie/low fat format. I don't think that's gonna happen since the main ingredient is bacon grease and I know for a fact that another kind of "good for us" oil wouldn't taste the same. But that doesn't mean I won't try.
The funny thing about this bug I had is that the appetite didn't falter. Sure wish it had a little, just a little. Actually I ate every thing I could get my hands on the first day. That may have been just one of those days that hit me once in a while, oh well.
I did get out of the house a little yesterday in this beautiful weather. Walked all the way from my back door to the garage, taking some stuff out there that had piled up. Then a couple of times I just enjoyed the warmth and sat on the porch while my doggies were doing their business and smelling the wild life that is up and about. I have a really hard time talking them into going out when it is bitter cold out there, just like everyone else does, I'm sure. But I had a hard time keeping them in yesterday. The deer were really abundant yesterday (I saw 8 in one bunch) and they love to set and bark at them. They even chase them a little ways into the woods but they don't get too close or chase them to where ever they go when being chased, thank goodness.
Hope your weekend is going well and you remembered to set your clocks ahead last night (I didn't).
