Time to go home to Maryland. It’s with mixed feelings that we leave today. The weather is gorgeous, there is a pool in our backyard and we are going home to cold, rainy weather, with a vast stretch of marsh land and waterfront as our view. It is lovely and serene but we love it most in the Fall, Spring, and Summer.  We did miss a big snow and one month of Winter so we should count our blessings. Even our dog, Toby, seems a little sad and wanted to walk an extra time or two this morning. Wonder if he has any idea we have to get on a plane again?

So, we have eaten well, drank much, and lounged for too long. I feel like a stuffed Turkey! Both Joe (my husband), and I have decided we need to get back in control. Now that both of us are getting more “mature”, because I hate the word old unless it’s used to refer to relics and antiques, we are trying to be more health conscious. We don’t always stay on track but when the train derails we go back at it again. Exercise, is something else we lack so it’s time for us to use that gym membership we pay for, at least until we can go out and walk or bike again in reasonable weather.

Fish, chicken, lean cuts of beef, tons of vegies, legumes. All things both of us truly love, thank God. I will post our endeavors and of course our failings…..haha. I think it’s only fair. Let’s face it, human fraility is in us all! So check out my future recipes and of course any help in this area on your part is welcome.

See you when I get back to good old Maryland. Lots of stories and fun to share from the Land of Pleasant Living as it is so aptly referred to.

Bon Voyage
