    Nice! I love reading these. Teriyaki pork roast sounds even better than peanut butter paste! Do you have a recipe?

    Yes i do. It’s a crock pot recipe and it comes out so tender. The kids absolutely love it. I cut all the fat off the pork loin roast. If you want the recipe just let me know. It takes five minutes to put together in the crock pot. I serve it with Basmati rice and a vegetable.

    Okay pumpkin-anything sounds amazing….do those muffins end up being moist??

    PS: I will meet you in England or Italy, ’cause I’d rather be there too! (and France please 🙂 )

    Actually they are moist and low cal, low fat and high fiber and only take a few minutes to make. The website is http://www.vitalicious.com. You use the blueberry muffin mix and take their recipe for pumkpin muffins. We have a muffin and a weight watchers yogurt every morning for breakfast. You get your fiber and protein which both fill you up.

    Let me lose 100 more pounds. It sounds like a lot but at the rate I am going it is doable and we will meet in Paris. My daughter’s best friend went there last summer and loved it. She also went to Amsterdam but liked Paris better. My niece went to Iceland and London for there honeymoon last year and loved London. They also traveled into the country side and loved it too.

    Life is too short to not do the things you want to.

    Dammit! I keep telling everyone this but something is REALLY WRONG with the WordPress Blog Surfer! A ton of subscriptions aren’t showing up, THIS being one of them, and I’m days late to the dance!

    I love Anne of Green Gables, I simply love it. And I love Top Chef and American Idol. I used to love Lost but they pissed me off and stopped watching for awhile, and now I really am lost.

    Sky and Telescope is too smart for me. I would never understand any of it. Do they have a retarded version?

    Also. Doesn’t that supervisor standing between Lucy and Ethel remind you of Barbara? I think it’s the way she’s calling out something, to speed up the line or whatever. Yes, Barbara’s the level-headed supervisor and you and I are Lucy and Ethel shoving chocolates in our mouth to keep up with the conveyor belt.

    from your list of 4 places you lived, I’ve also lived in 2 of them. The bucket and Cape Cod. Well, actually it was the “Gateway” to the cape. But I still consider it the cape

    @ Briz
    Out of all the places I’ve lived, I definitely love the Cape the best. I’ve also lived here the longest, 34 years. Is the bucket Pawtucket?

    yes, the bucket is Pawtucket. I moved from there to Wareham (the Gateway) a little more than a year ago and then from Wareham to Dighton over the summer!

    What a great name for Pawtucket. I used to live on Sweet Ave. off Newport Ave. back in the late 50’s. In the late 60’s I lived in Park Place Apartments. I also lived on the East Side of Prov. in the early 70’s then moved to the Cape.
