Nom Nom Nom!

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.

1. Game from an animal that someone in your family killed. I grew up on more venison than beef.

2. Ice cream from a dairy farm that makes their ice cream on the premises. Bonus points if you can eat your ice cream and see the herd of cows that it came from. Living on a farm (but not dairy)with cows and making our own homemade ice cream count!!!!

3. Wild berries that you find, pick and eat yourself.

4. Something deep-fried that was never meant to be deep-fried. Dill pickles.

5. Pizza from a NY City pizzeria that's at least 40 years old.

6. Bread made from scratch, still warm from the oven. Preferably that you've made yourself.

10. Salad from someone's garden.

11. Homemade salad dressing.

15. Slab bacon from a butcher shop or meat market. From a pig we raised also.

16. Real maple syrup.

17. Astronaut ice cream (purchased from a gift shop on a school field trip, if possible).

Low of 79

No that is not my golf score. Just the weather forecast for tomorrow. It is so nice to have the door open and fresh air. When you get up and it is 81 inside (with air set at 80) and 85 outside you don't get much fresh air.
Going to the pool at 8:45am, a group of us meet most mornings between 9 and 10 to "exercise".
Working on plans for trip to Las Vegas Oct 16 to 19 with both daughters, have tickets to two shows. Also on vacation to Hawaii (Big Island) Nov 4 to 11, have an island tour 5th, thought this would be a good way to see highlights and then we know where we want to spend more time during the rest of the week.
"Snowbirds" are starting to return so life will be much busier for the next 6 plus months.
