Thank you Rich for the Daily report.

 

Chicken Minestrone -- sounds great -- had DH pull out a chicken beast to defrost.

 

I promise not to give up the ship today.  Dare day -- dare people to stay safe doing these violent times.

 

Love the quote today.

Good Morning Rich and everyone. Thanks for our daily update.

I wish there was a ship right now that we could not give up !

Dinner tonight might be pork and sauerkraut with mashed potatoes, since it’s a cool sunny day, but by Wednesday it’s going to be near 90.

Habe a great day and stay safe.

Thank you for today’s Daily, Rich! Morning to the Dailyite gang & my CC sisters!

 

Never Give Up & Dare are appropriate for these times. Tonight is leftovers for me - my fridge is a bit cramped right now.
 

The deer are active this morning, the twins already wandered by!

Going kayaking before it gets too hot & the rain moves in.
 

My flowers are so happy with all this rain. I may have to cut some of my hydrangea blossoms - they are so huge & heavy & gorgeous. Even my Maryland hydrangeas never blossomed like this.
 

Stay well everyone.

Thank you for the report.  For those wondering about Pichilingue the Koningsdam  (at Pichilingue) is  probably actually closer to the town of LaPaz than the Oosterdam.

The ship next to the Oosterdam is the Sebourn Sojourn.

Thanks for the daily.  Might have minestrone for lunch since the weather has cooled a bit.  Dinner tonight is ravioli, thanks to Olive Garden’s buy one get one deal.

Thanks for the daily report.  I have faith that we will cruise again, I don't dare try to predict when.  It's leftover chicken for us tonight, not in soup.  Stay safe and healthy everyone.

Good morning, thanks for the Daily!  Believe me, I'll never give up on a Dam ship; it's quite a while until our next booked cruise begins, but I'll continue looking forward to it.

 

Re: dinner suggestion . . . not to be critical, but I'm seeing chicken minestrone (not a fave) mentioned a few times already, so I'm going to read it as code for bbq pork chops and lemon garlic potatoes.    And wine.

 

Smooth Sailing!  🙂🙂🙂

to be honest, I use a program which is "supposed" to do a random selection of one of about 90 meals in a list. I haven't checked for duplicates although I know the porcupine meatballs was. I add to the list of meals as I find some more so hopefully the duplications will be further apart.

I'm sorry if I sounded rude; I just don't like chicken minestrone.  LOL   On the other hand, I grew up on porcupine meatballs, so when I see them as a meal suggestion, it brings me back to my childhood.  Next time I'll keep my mouth shut.  (sure, like that's gonna happen)  Stay well, friend.

 

Smooth Sailing!  🙂🙂🙂

thanks for posting the Daily, Rich 🙂 

 

Love the Don’t Give up the Ship day!  A good motto for all of us in these times.

 

Soup sounds good for tonight.  It’s pretty cool out there 😞

Don't give up the ship is a motto that we have been living with since this Covid arrived and cancelled all the ship cruises.  Looking forward to being on board--sometime.

 

Temp was 40 when we woke up, not spring like for sure.  Had the wood stove on to help with the indoor temp.  

Leftover roasted pork loin with cherry conserve for tonight.

Thanks for the Daily, Rich! Love the quote and the suggestion for dinner. We have a great soup place that we visit sometimes, but haven't throughout our home stay. Might be time for a visit to support the small business!  Have a wonderful day!

I didn't consider your response to be rude. I just wanted to let you, and everyone, know what that process was to explain any duplicates.

OTOH, If anyone has suggestions to throw into the mix, just let me know.

My email is my screen name here at either yahoo or gmail.
