One baby is home, so his choice for dinner is grilled steaks (rib eyes), baked potatoes. Of course, I'll add in either broccoli or salad, along w/ corn on the cob. Grandma is coming too.

How about you?

We are in Cincinnati at oldest daughter's house. Her honey is a master at making pizza, I am sitting with a glass of wine listening to them cook. Damn, life is good.

Pasta and veggie concoction. I shovelled 2x the steps, driveway and Buddy's racetrack and then finally sn*wblowed when it started to rain/ice and it got too heavy. It's all rain out there now but I couldn't risk letting mother nature do clean up in case it froze before 'she' was finished . On the up side, I skipped indoor exercise today and I rather enjoyed being outside being productive. Just yesterday on our walk I said to Buddy 'I miss spending our days outside' :lol: Just water here, cheers!

I'm having a Bud and a nip or 2 then frying up cube steaks with rice. I got an email today from the Divi/Tam cyber Monday coming up 11-26-18, 50% off!!! An ocean view room is now $738 per night :lol: But the special cyber pricing brings it to $369 per night :lol: WOW what a deal $2583 for 7 days, then you have to add flights, and the dates are only from 4-21-19 to 12-22-19, what a scam their running.

Cheers! In with the first of a stock of 16 oz. Lites. I lo ve the larger can with the screw-off top and they have usually been quite a bit pricier per ounce. I've found some deals.... Today I got a 15-pack (240 oz.) for less than $15. That's just over 6¢/oz. I usually get a 30-pk of 12 oz. cans, 360 oz. for $23, also just a bit over 6¢/oz. :D :D :D

Lunch/supper I had thawed and nuked a thick pork chop smothered with Bavarian kraut. Yum yum.

Yes we got ours too but didn't look at the pricing yet. Holy moly that has really gone up!! We have been talking about doing Dutch Village instead as we don't eat/drink that much to justify AI but I do love being right on the beach.

Yea, the Divi/Tam is pricing themselves out of the market and plenty places to stay for less for the quality of the food they serve now. They are selling beach front now.

I've been thinking the same too, Pammy. I wanted to try the Manchebo but too expensive. I'm the same way..don't need AI..I wouldn't be able to justify it. Isn't Divi Dutch on the beach?
