Good morning! I was planning pulled pork bbq sammies but I think I'm more in the mood for just a good old fashioned pork roast w/potatoes, carrots, onions, & celery. Have a great day everyone!!

Good morning! How did yestday go, Lisa? I'm having leftovers of this tonight from the freezer. It's okay, not great. Although it might be the sauce I used than makes me less than enthused over this dish.

I have mixed emotions. I've already had more extensive testing that concluded nothing but I didn't have a GI ordering it or looking at the results before. This ultrasound SHOULD'VE been the first test done, apparently. However, I'm also dealing w/a GI(& the office/practice in general) who doesn't know a thing about my type of weightloss surgery(They're only familiar w/gastric bypass & the lapband around here) & doesn't totally understand how things are rearranged inside me. An example: the xray tech couldn't find my stomach yesterday. The report on that will confuse the heck out of the office. Results for that should be interesting.

Lobster Casserole

Submitted by: NUBBLE44 
This rich dish, consisting of succulent lobster meat sauteed in butter and seasoned with dry mustard; then baked in heavy cream, is a casserole native to Maine. If desired, you may add 1 to 2 tablespoons of sherry to the mixture. Top with buttered bread crumbs before baking for a nice presentation.

Good morning all. Had a small portion of lobster in the freezer planned for a dip. Got to looking (LOVE ingredient searching!) and found this, added a slice of Swiss. Leftovers for dinner!

Lucky Noodles
Feb. 28, 2013 3:38 am
Eat with a fork or your hands, it was good. I was craving Swiss (never had that crave before!) and before I knew it I tweaked this with Swiss, dashed old bay and pepper. Really thinking it would not taste good and I'd scramble an egg. Hahaha, DH missed out!

Stay warm, Cheryl. Out of the 9 sports that our school offers, soccer is the longest season for me. I'm the athletic secretary and it is the hardest season to find workers for. Our try-outs and practices start a week from Monday. We ahve about 3" of snow on the ground and these kids practice outside for 2 hours a night.
