Lots on the plate of life right now. I’m mostly managing everything, but there are a lot of plates up in the air at this moment.
In the midst of all this, I am trying very hard to remain on a diet. I have never really been on a diet before. I mean I tried once or twice last year, but those first feeble attempts at a diet mostly involved cutting out French fries, while still drinking wine, eating cheese, and enjoying pizza. I never had to diet before, so I didn’t really understand how much I needed to change my ways. Well, I’ve been at it for two weeks on Noom and running. I’m doing something very similar to Pioneer Woman. Let’s see if my (our) plan works. I stopped drinking wine, for God’s sake. I better lose twenty pounds in two weeks.

How do you prepare a meal for 20 (family in from out of town) in the middle of a work/school week? A baked potato station. Cook two bags of potatoes in the oven for 45-60 minutes at 425 degrees. People are used to eating microwaved potatoes, so they’ll think you’ve made them something miraculous. Then add bowls of cheese and chives and sour cream. And, of course, cook other things, too.
