Sorry I was gone for a bit. I got wrapped up some in nightly reading adventures and also my computer was acting up last night. Actually...it was the mouse that wasn't properly connected...probably one of the kids.
Anyways...my profuse apologies!
I decided to post a few pictures of Kentucky Fried Chicken's mashed potatoes and gravy for SunshineMeg since she loves them so much. When I was posting FFF's pictures, I did consider talking about the mashed potatoes, but when I was a kid...I did NOT like gravy of any variation. I only liked butter on my mashed potatoes...And KFC's mashed potatoes were "ok" in my humble teen aged opinion.
Now...however, I have grown to enjoy the merits of tasty home made gravy and will actually put some on my mashed potatoes if it available. Though, I won't make gravy. I do believe there is an art to it and I just haven't put the effort into mastering it.
I did enjoy all of your comments about fantasy food Friday. I was amused with Lindsey's comment that she refused to eat chicken "on a bone". I suppose I could understand being squeamish about that. Sarah mentioned Popeye's fried chicken. The name sounds familiar. But I don't think there is one in this area.
Anyway...on to where I've been the last few days.
I debated whether or not I wanted to mention the exact nature of what I have been reading about these days and decided..."why not"... that I'm probably not the only one who questions or is curious about the subject of polygamy. Polygamy as a religious belief for the fundamentalist Mormons to be exact.
The whole fact finding mission was sparked by a conversation with a good friend of ours who moved to Idaho with his wife about a year ago. He mentioned how he had talked to one gal who had been married as a Mormon and had endured a strange ritualistic wedding that involved some inappropriate-ness by male leaders during the ceremony. First, I googled for information about Mormon wedding traditions and then, decided to just check out several books from the library.
Although, I still haven't found anything about the weddings that match what happened to this gal, I've read some pretty unbelievable eye-opening stuff. Stuff that you can't even believe is happening in America. Also I'm learning a lot about the history of Utah and the Mormon church.
It makes me very, very glad to be living in monogamy.
Ok...so besides all that, I'm still working out. I worked on my back and biceps tonight. I did my leg work-out yesterday and am even increasing some of my weights which is interesting. I signed up to start a "Mom's in Motion" class next week, which is for pregnant mothers to work out doing aerobics. I'm looking forward to that.
My eating is doing fine. I'm pretty much maintaining my current weight. A lot of people don't think I look pregnant...but I'm ok with that. After all, I do have over five months left. That's a lot of time left for me to "get big" so to speak.
Since I've literally barely looked at the computer in three or four days, I'm miserably behind on on everyone. But I hope the spring weather is treating you all well, and you are meeting your goals.
