Dinner Cravings

When I got home from school today I started watching Ellen. They had a Dr. on the show that was talking about diets ... and what is healthy. He said that the average American eats 32 pounds of cheese a year. This is not a good thing he said. He told a story of his mother needing to drop her cholesterol and so she threw out all of her cheese and meat. Within 6 weeks her cholesterol level dropped 70 points. I should have found this motivating and such but all I could think about is ... cheese. "That sounds good! Cheese ... cheesy potatoes -- yum -- funeral potatoes ... what would be good with funeral potatoes? ... ham! and corn!" I immediately went to Harmon's, bought the necessary ingredients for my dinner, and came home to make it. This is a very similar meal we eat on Christmas Night -- only on Christmas Night we have homemade rolls and jello.

Joe came home to a yummy smelling home with a nice meal on the "table" (We generally eat on the couch ... a habit that needs to be broken). I don't play "June Cleaver" very often -- but it was fun tonight!

Throw out meat and cheese? No way! Glad to see you didn't give in. And you didn't invite me for dinner? Any leftovers? Hehe.
