Ahhhhhh, feeling a little better on the HOW COULD I DO THIS AND GAIN SO MUCH WEIGHT BACK! front. 

I had to throw my beans/cabbage/chicken soup away.  After cooking it all night - making the cooking time a total of at least 16 hours - the pinto beans were still crunchy.

Woe is me.  I screwed up cooking pinto beans in a crockpot. 

Somebody else is just going to have to do it for me.  ;-)    ;-)     ;-)   ;-)     ;-)    ;-)      ;-)
(Thinking one is a princess is good for something....)

On the wheat/dairy/sugar front:
Wheat - I had a 6-inch Subway turkey sub today.  Without cheese.
Diary - Nina brought me a Starbucks skinny vanilla latte. 

I was puny today - headache, body aches............ it was a gift from Barb, who had it earlier in the week.

Jen brought me a bowl of her green chili stew for dinner.  It was SO DELICIOUS but probably had some flour in it.  But I ate it without cheese, sour cream, or.........


And I didn't drink any wine at my favorite wine-drinking place - Jen's house.  

So, I feel positive about today. 

Jen and I had a funny conversation tonight.  She said that since I like to eat out so much, she will set up a table for me at her house, I can call her and order what I want and bring my friends to dinner, she'll make it healthy and in a perfect portion, and I can pay her.  She thinks that this plan would benefit both of us - she would get to cook (which she strangely likes to do), she would get some money, I would save some money (because she'd be cheaper than a restaurant), and I would get to eat healthy.  (She forgot the benefits of me getting to hold Avery and play with Ady.) 

I told her tonight that part of the reason I like to go to restaurants is that I am a people watcher and like to be out being a part of the public.  Jen had a solution to that problem.  She offered to have her 16-year-old son periodically streak through the dining room - in true pants-less streaking form.  Her friend, Tia, reminded her that that would be considered child abuse. 

I think she should just get strangers off the street and have them sit around her living room while I'm eating there. 

I love my friends.  I am so very blessed to have them.
