We have dinner tonight - I don't have to cook before rushing out to our busy Thursday night Cub Scout evening. I have already told myself that I will limit the size on the plate - use the fist and/or open hand factor. Make sure that I don't go overboard and have too many ribs. Take the bites and enjoy every tasty morsal. I am learning to "dine" on my meals and not just have "dinner" - the slow pace, the enjoyment of each little bite, slow down - count to ten before fork comes back to my mouth - let the food settle in my stomach and not have the desire to have that little extra second helping....oh, I can't wait. The Minestrone Soup is for lunch today - much love going out to Bill & Jen!!!

Waterloo - YUMMY!!!
I now live really close to the most wonderful Rib Place in the Stockton area (atleast I think it is)!! Many years ago I was introduced to the Waterloo Restaurant - Just a few miles off Highway 99 - East of Stockton and well, the cuttest local bar area. The place is almost always packed on the weekends. Can't beat a good meal - soup and/or salad, bread and well - the Ribs, Chicken and yummy Pesto Pasta. Bill & Jen went there with friends last night and Bill felt bad that he was not at home having dinner with us - he is cute like that - so he ordered a dinner of Ribs, Soup and Pasta to bring home. When the food came into the house it smelled so yummy and yes, I was a bit tempted to just have a little piece of the pasta or one small rib, but dinner had already been served and cleaned up at my house - no evil voices in my head convincing me of an after dinner snack - woo hoo. Oh, but when that food came home I was thrilled. I am truly blessed!! Life has been tough and sometimes just the little things can make you feel so warm inside. Taking all the bad and pushing it out of your head.....but I am getting off track - - - - - - -
