Stick with it Saturday

Today we are getting together with some of my cousins for a pot luck.  I think they call it a pot luck because, when you are trying to watch what you consume, it takes a lot of luck and willpower to attend one of these dinners where everyone brings comfort food and desserts.  Wish me luck!

Speaking of comfort foods, I am bringing stuffed cabbages.  I used very lean ground beef and no ground pork this time in an attempt to make them a bit healthier.  Though even with the pork they are still a pretty healthy dish.  You can find my recipe here.

Sleep: 6 hrs. Dogs were very restless last night, perhaps because of the storm.  Got Frank up at 4:30 and me up at 5:30.  Frank was able to go back to sleep, Lucky they are all sleeping, except for me, Lucky Dogs!!
