While visiting Linville Falls at the beginning of the week, we stopped at a little country shop and purchased some sweet potato pancake mix. This morning I made those pancakes in hopes they’d be as good as those found on Tupelo Honey Cafe’s menu. Jim and I rated them “OK” but not delicious. At $8 a bag (which Grandma paid for) – ouch. With sugar-free syrup and all, it cost me 7 points. We have enough mix for another round or two. I’m not convinced that’s a good thing.
For today’s entertainment, we went to two different Habitat for Humanity thrift stores in search of a new kitchen faucet for the RV. If you’ve never been to one, they seem to carry home improvement things rather than clothing. In a place like these, it’s about light fixtures, cabinets, furniture, toilets, tile, etc. We did see a few faucets but nothing that would suit our needs.
Sorry Jim but I must confess on your behalf. Ya see, Jim stopped to have Baskin-Robbins. I went in with him. I inquired about low cal. In the end, I got nothing. Jim got a Praline ‘n Cream Scoop. When I got home I had a vanilla yogurt with cocoa powder mixed in.
Dinner was delicious. I grilled some chicken with Montreal Chicken Seasoning. The flavor was great. I grilled a couple of extra breasts to make a chicken stir-fry with in a couple of days. For veggies I sliced yellow squash, zucchini, and red onion. Working like lasagna, I made a layer of squash, sprayed olive oil (I have it in a pump spray), added the next veggies and sprayed again. Occasionally I sprinkled some parmesan cheese and some Mrs. Dash. I also spooned a lot of diced garlic.

I covered it with foil and baked for about 30 minutes or until tender. I then uncovered it and stuck it under the broiler.
I’m sorry today was mostly a food journal. It wasn’t a very interesting day.
|We firmed up plans to meet up with John & Derek. We ate lunch at a restaurant in which many locations have closed. Later in the evening we had a Texas style dinner while seeing an outdoor production. Here I give a tour of the current RV park and of a previous RV park. Yeard Sale? Check it all out here.|
