On the down side, it was tremendously difficult to watch football Saturday. I can't tell you the last Saturday during football season that I didn't have at least one beer. On the upside, I wasn't in bed by 9 that day either, as has been the case in the past, so it was certainly more productive.
New things tried this week: crock pot chicken, apple glazed pork loin, stuffed green peppers (minus the usual cheese and rice) and turkey on the grill. Everything was very good. I didn't get to the chicken pancakes -- stay tuned on that front.
Assuming that I receive the blood work results before the weekend, I'll probably make another entry letting you know the updated stats.
