Latest From The Beach...and...Lots Of Food!

 Hi Everyone......

Me again....checking in!

Weather has been fantastic....lots of warm Sunshine...and plenty to eat!

I will have to go on a strict diet when I get home! Hahaha! 😳
We had hotdogs for lunch the other day...so delish....not something we usually eat!

I did Cajun catfish the other night...with grilled veggies and rice....really good!

Grilled pork tenderloin, with smashed potatoes...grilled peppers, and asparagus....yummy!

Of course....my fav BURGERS with Greek salad and avacadoes!

Ok....now you see why I need to go on a diet!

Been walking a lot....but I guess the food is catching up to me!

Oh well.....there will be lots of chores at home to keep me active.....right?








Started another blanket....loving the grey/blue tones...may need to pick up a few balls of yarn here....

I alway miscalculate how much I need.





I like this pic of me and boyfriend....

Check out that big black cloud behind us!

Love the clouds...and...of course the Sunsets...

The one below, was mind altering...seriously beautiful.

Ok....I am off for a walk...hahaha! Had berries and yogurt for breakfast...

Hope you are all well....and enjoying your weekend.

See you soon.....

          Cheers!  :o)

  1. Love all the yummy food pics! I want to try your cajun catfish...will look for that seasoning mix at the grocery!
    Did you dredge it in a flour mixture and pan fry or bake it? Looks scrumptious!
    Nothing like dipping your toes in the tide at the beach. Love that. I'm living vicariously, so keep posting pics! haha....we have snowflakes!

    1. Just the Cajun seasoning Betsy...no black iron frying pan here, so I melted some butter in my trusty grill pan, and fried it in there!
      I usually bake my fish, but the catfish is better fried! Let me know if you try it!
      The water is nice and warm this year...very refreshing!
      Sorry about the snow! Less than 2 weeks left for us πŸ˜•

  2. Yummy food, vacations are for eating and relaxing, lots of time to worry about weight loss when you get home. And once you start running around with Miss V you will lose it all. Lovely sea birds, I spy an oyster catcher.

      I like that afghan, but I surely don't have enough yarn to continue the colour combo...might just switch gears a wee bit!

  16. Definitely wonderful photos, your relaxation mode is showing, happy for you. You and the BF look great. Must ask you how to do, "smashed potatoes." Not to worry about overeating, I'm saving your spot at fitness classes. 😬 Have fun...

    1. Hi Hester....
      As there is no potato masher here, I use a fork and "smash" them. Added a few dollops of fat free sour cream...delish!
      Yes...save me a spot! Preferably waaaaay in the back! 😬
      Off to see the Jays tomorrow!

    2. Yay, have fun at the Jays, our home town team! Hope the BF wears his Jays t-shirt. 😬
