Friday, Saturday rewind

Recap: 

Busy weekend.  Mammo. Not fun. but important.  Get yours done!!!

Volunteered.  Angel Food Ministries. Love this ministry. Cut your food bill in half. 

Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing food relief and financial support to communities.  Each month’s menu is different than the previous month and consists of both fresh and frozen items with an average retail value of approximately $60 that you purchase for only $30.  We were so busy, I forgot to take pictures but here’s a sampling of the Thanksgiving Holiday box ($36 frozen/fresh items)

If you’re local to me (Pembroke Pines,Fl), my church takes orders online.
How blessed am I?  I’ll tell you, I have the best friends.  Last night two of them took me out to dinner for a belated birthday celebration.  We went to Grand Lux Cafe.  I love that place.
I love the fire torches

I love their varied menu but I was craving a pizza and a glass of wine.   So it was the Thai Chicken pizza for me.  Had a spicy peanut sauce, bean sprouts, carrots, green onions, cilantro, chicken and mozzarella.  Yummy!
