New Year’s Eve started like a usual Saturday with our weekly trip to Weight Watchers. I was not sure what the result would be on the scale. I was pretty sure I would have a gain, I was hoping it wasn’t too much. I was relieved when I had only gained 1.4 pounds. Not too bad considering the fact that Mr. Cheesecake had been visiting all week. Funny how I never took his picture…;-) Anyway, he’s gone now and can’t hurt me anymore. But I know I have to get on track and I have already started.
We had our usual after WW breakfast…
Two scrambled with cottage cheese. I really like the addition of the cottage cheese as a side. It’s tasty and filling but doesn’t use up a lot of Points. I get some more protein, too.
No big festive plans for us. Ralph and I went to my sister Ele’s house for dinner. We didn’t need a big fancy party, we had fun just the three of us.
The table set, with the Christmas tree still up…so Prettty!
Three cheers for the Three Of Us!
Ele’s delicious pasta fagioli. It actually comes from a Weight Watchers recipe and it is wonderful! I didn’t photograph the banana bread I had…so yummy. No more…
Tried a self photo again…This should be on my list of goals!! Different camera, makes it even harder!
Ele and Me with Mom watching over us…as always…
Ele and Ralph…I Love this one!
Ralph and Me. Pretty good for Ele’s first try at my camera!
Ralph and I were home by 9pm fell, asleep and woke up just in time to see Lady GaGa send the ball down in Times Square to ring in the New Year.
New Year’s Day is Ralph’s brother Bob’s birthday. We were meeting the family for lunch. With an eye toward staying on track, I ordered a Greek Salad.
Great choice! Dressing on the side and it was very light. Loved it!
Festive Cake…Happy Birthday, Bob!
My mercifully tiny portion…
The family. Ralph’s sister Maddie and her husband George were sorely missed. That’s the Birthday Boy in the plaid shirt! We don’t get to see Bob very often and this was great!
After lunch we stopped back at Gail’s house for a little while. We did something I haven’t done in years… We watched the Mummer’s Parade. Gail’s brother Ray was in one of the String Bands for many years so he was giving us insider info as we watched.
Oh, Dem Golden Slippers…only we all commented that they don’t play that anymore…:-(
The Captains always have the Best Costumes.
One final shot from the TV… a great view of the Philadelphia Skyline…
Welcome 2012!! Lots of Work To Do!!
