            I did a little research on oyster dressing from the past. First of all, I was shocked that they made dressing in the Middle Ages. Who knew? In 1958, someone in Great Britain first called stuffing stuffing. Whoa – that looks weird. Oyster stuffing became a big hit in the 1800s.
         Protein, iron, omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, zinc, and vitamin C are some of the good nutrients in oysters.

         Today, was the first measurable snow of the 2014-15 winter season. The dogs have been in Heaven since it began falling last night. I swear that Sage has had to go outside every hour. Most of the time, she just wants to stand on the deck and enjoy watching the world go by. Willow, on the other hand, enjoys licking the entire deck and eating as much snow as is possible. It is joyful to watch them frolic in the backyard and enjoy the cold weather.

The backyard has a dusting of newly fallen snow

The water bowl is frozen solid

Sage really does look cute covered in snow

Willow isn't too happy that I needed her to look at the camera,
when all of that snow was waiting to be eaten.

Photo Op

         A couple of weeks ago, I asked Jenny to take a few pictures of me in one of my new dresses. I thought it might make a new header for the blog, but I really love a picture with the girls. I can’t remember who told me that I needed to take a lot of pictures as I am on my weight loss journey to help with motivation and acceptance of my new shape. So, here they are.
