President of The Gay Social Network (GSN), Steve MacArthur, ran a short story about Jim and I in their July newsletter!
The GSN gathering at our house was enormous. It’s been a long time so I don’t recall the actual count. We’ve had jumbo Christmas parties too. The only thing that may have beat the GSN party size was when my uncle married Joyce at our home.
Pretty nifty, huh?
For dinner I tried something new – a Weight Watchers recipe. Sorry mushroom haters.
Above: The mixture. I used Weight Watchers reduced fat cream cheese because it’s what I already had on hand. The recipe calls for 4 oz and the smallest cream cheese package in the store is 8 oz. My individual tubs of cream cheese are 1 oz so I just used 4 of them. Also the recipe called for low fat cheddar cheese. I used fat free. Maybe that evens it out?
We both enjoyed these stuffed mushrooms. Next time I won’t top with cheese. Jim suggests using spinach in the mixture. This recipe sounds good too:
Jim gave me a strange look because I was typing and typing and typing. I told him I was blogging about the recipe. He thought it was funny that on a Saturday night I’m blogging about what I made for dinner instead of: 1- Going out or 2- Interesting places we visited as if we were still in the motorhome traveling the country. A year ago we were in New Orleans. Good times which now depress me.
Above: Just for something different I made up a few salads to have for lunch instead of sandwiches. I had some diced up chicken in the freezer left over from when we were having salads weekly. It turned out to be a lot of chicken in each salad so at lunch time I used a lot of points. We also have a lot of Feta on hand from my Atkins diet. It’s not the reduced fat kind either. I used some when we were in DC and had salads with the gang but there’s so much left still.
