Back in town!
I was alittle worried because of the small group, and what I would eat, but I don't think it turned out too bad. I'll see how bad the damage is on Wednesday when I weigh in. We stayed at the lodge which is a guest house on the ranch. It's beautiful and was redone a few years ago. All of it was chronicled on her blog. When we arrived we were greeted with mason jar glasses of some sweet wine, fruit concoction. I sipped it, so I didn't appear rude, but boy was it sweet and syrupy tasting. My low sugar diet often makes things taste too sweet to me.Then came the homemade pizza. I had two small squares as it was a rectangle shape. Lucklily it was also topped with arugula, chicken, fresh mozzarella and/or proscuitto, and with all the talking I really didn't have time to go back and get anymore. We were exhausted so we headed to bed. Great....eat dough and then go to sleep!!!
The morning progressed and Pam did her cooking presentation and made us lunch. It was a wonderful salad with deviled eggs, some roasted fingerling potatoes and salmon with a wonderful fresh herb, caper topping. So fresh and healthy tasting. Lemon cookies were the dessert, and they were tiny little balls dusted with confectionary sugar. I had just one, as they passed around.Very good and just enough of a little sweet after the great lunch. Then the masseuse and manicurist came and stayed until 8 that night. We all had massages, pedicures, manicures. Of course I had my mani/pedi done right before I left, so I didn't need another, but but the massage was great. They were doing gel or regular manis, so it was a real treat for the other ladies. Rees dog Charlie ( she wrote a children's book about him) just hung out with us all day!
