Remember that TV show? I do - it was interesting. BUT as I do have loyal Blog readers and I do try and cater to them - I have had a request from Sister Sue for the recipe that I cooked the other nite that was soooo good - so - be warned - the remainder of this blog is going to be a recipe - try it - it was good

It only took 2 days for our lake to freeze over - not so you can walk on it but ice from one shore to the other. It is cold. We now have a good base for the tractor snow blower. If you don't have a good base all you do is spit up rocks with the snow. Funny how well you adapt to the snow and cold - it's like it has always been here.
Did my weights today - I am getting re-aquainted (?) with my muscles. I paid attention to how they felt and didn't push it - less weight and less reps. Give me a week and it will be as tho I never stopped.
See Ya by
