Happy Sunday! Today is laundry, errands, chili making and football watching for me. Since I'm from Massachusetts we are rooting for the Patriots, but I was born in Pennsylvania so I wouldn't be terribly upset if the Eagles win (don't tell anyone, LOL).

QOTD: Do you have a specific dish (or dishes) that you make to bring to a party (like a SuperBowl party) that is safe for you to eat? I usually cook shrimp to bring (I did that Friday for the dance we went to). Today we have a friend coming so I am making a vegetarian chili that I love (plus cornbread for DH). Our friend is bring a dessert which hopefully won't be something that calls to me...

1 year, 10 months post-op

B: eggs, cottage cheese and Canadian bacon

L: Tuna salad, pickles and cottage cheese OR leftover pulled pork for yesterday's lunch.

D: Vegetarian chili

S: Nut thins and hummus

Good morning! I'm working on figuring out my plan for the day still. I got both of my papers submitted yesterday (36 hours early!) so I spent time in the evening just reading. For fun. OMG. Today I'm going out to see Winchester, Skype with my mom, cook dinner, and do a load of laundry. I've also got to do one more forum reply for HMGT. Aside from that, I don't really have any plans since there's no way I'm grocery shopping before the super bowl! Rational brain says I should spend some time on next week's reading assignments, but rational brain also says I should enjoy the break and read some more for fun. (With my NEW progressive lenses!) So, we'll see.

QOTD: Not really. I tend to always do different things since I like to experiment. These days most of my "going to parties" is related to Cookbook Club, which requires me to experiment!

1: protein shake
2: probably popcorn at the movie
3: leftover rabbit stew
4: Chicken Shawarma Rice Bowls with Quick-Pickled Tomatoes - I'll be doing mine without the rice. This is the last recipe from Modern Israeli Cuisine (my cookbook for the week) and I get to make Harissa to go along with it!

liquid and vites: on track
exercise: it'll depend on how I feel. I'm still experiencing pain and not sure what's going on. It's either resolving to a kidney stone, or constipation.

I hope the movie is good! I love Helen Mirren!

We are thinking about going to a matinee Tuesday after work for our ghost fix!

I'm looking forward to it! The house looks crazy and I'm always up for a good scary movie. Especially with Mirren and Jason Clarke!

I've been to the real Winchester house in San Jose. It's a fun tour!

Gwen, with all the movies you see, I hope you have a MoviePass card... I have no idea how they make any money, but it's the best thing ever for moviegoers!

It sounds like a really fun tour/experience.

We don't have a MoviePass card. I think Lance looked into it but decided it wouldn't work well for us - but I forget the reasoning.

For $90 a year, I can see a movie every day. So $7.50 a month. It's pretty crazy. If you even see one movie a month you've more than paid for it (our tickets are $12.50 here). You may want to check it out again!

I feel like he found it would be problematic with reserved seating? But I don't remember.

Ah, yes. Some theaters don't let you use it for reserved seating. Some do.

Great job on the papers! I went to undergraduate and graduate school at night and I was always procrastinating on getting papers done.
