This week, our microwave, in the kitchen, decided it had had enough and decided to die on us. You don’t know how much you actually use something until it isn’t available anymore. This morning, a gentleman, who worked on our kitchen remodel a couple of years ago, made a special visit out to see us. Unfortunately, the microwave was basically encased so we couldn’t easily replace it on our own. I appreciate that he took considerable care as he removed the molding and replaced the old microwave with the new one. He’s a great guy and was a pleasure to have visiting us. It was also a bonus that he noticed that I had lost a considerable amount of weight since he was here last. 🙂 His comment actually helped me re-commitment to Weight Watchers to lose the last 20 or so pounds I need to go. It worked for me back then, and will for this bit, especially now that I have the exercise part under control.

Once I decided to get back on the WW wagon again, hubby and I went back through our menu. He was nosing through the freezer to see what we had that would be appropriate. He came across some mystery food that had been in there WAY too long. The picture above is from the freezer burn that was on some oatmeal I made over 6 months ago. (It’s now gone LOL) I so appreciated that intricacy of the crystal formations that I had to try and capture them on film. The picture doesn’t do the amazing-ness of it as well as seeing it in person, but you get the idea of what it was like. 😉 Be sure to click on the picture to see it full sized!

Until Tomorrow!
