Days 44 through 48: Pot Pies, Pumpkin Mezzaluna, and Popcorn

I haven't been posting my daily pics, but I have been taking them - often hastily, five minutes before bedtime.  It's a crazy busy time of year.  I bought my daughter's Christmas present from QVC.  Why did it take me so long to discover I could avoid stores in December?  No parking 2 miles from the door, no waiting in line 30 minutes after digging through the picked-over pile of sale items, no teenagers hanging out but not buying...

Here are some of the photos, I'll post more later.        

Day 44:  Pot Pie

I've been eating out far too often lately.  It's making my backside wider and my wallet thinner.  I bought some quick items to store in the freezer that are at least less damaging than fast food.  I don't remember pot pies rising quite so high when I was young.  I remember them tasting better, too.     

Day 45:  Books I'm Reading

I heard a rumor some people finish reading one book before they start another.  I think it must be one of those urban legends.

 Day 46:  HEB Central Market Pumpkin Mezzaluna

Now, this is more like it.  I tossed them in olive oil and pesto.  Have you tried HEB brand items?  They are often better than name brand!

 Day 47:  Night Sky

I thought I heard coyote singing to the night sky.  He stopped when I went out on the patio.

Day 48:  Popcorn   

What?  Popcorn is a whole grain?  It's a healthy snack?  Hooray!  Blanket, bowl of popcorn, La-Z-Boy, Lost DVD's...heaven.

P.S.  Young man next door:  Please ask Santa for headphones.

I liked the PS on the post! Made me laugh. My daughter wants to learn the trumpet! I think that could test the friendship with the neighbours!

Nothing wrong with all depends on what you put on them of course.
