Another one of those success stories from Icehouse auction!
The best part was being the high bidder at $20….the second best part….. I was on the other side of the room when I bid on it and when we got ready to leave, after he carried everything to the truck, I said…..don’t forget the grill and he said, “WE BOUGHT A GRILL???” Drawing out the Grilllll part!
I decided while he was gone, I would learn how to grill on it. The last picture was my sweet potato slices snack this afternoon. Just dipped in olive oil and a little salt. Not crisp but a very satisfying snack! It is going to be great for camping when we don’t want to wait on charcoal to heat up.
One other “food for thought” story. Many of you know I’ve given up sugar and gluten….processed sugar and bread (because gluten free bread sucks) and use only gluten free flour and pasta. By doing so I dumped 60-65 pounds depending on the week. I also have my joint pain under control and my food cravings are nearly non-existent. With company this weekend, I ate with wild abandon….my elbows and hands ached, my eye bags had eye bags and I craved sweets…I couldn’t quit thinking about food! Monday morning scale reading was up 5 pounds….I know I didn’t eat 15,000 calories to the excess! I’m not unhappy about the experience…it just confirmed what I already knew!
until next time……
