Living an Attitude of Gratitude

Day 1,009

Today I am thankful:

For foods from my childhood – Marmite on toast for breakfast; sardines on toast for an afternoon snack; canned salmon with salt and malt vinegar in a sandwich. I haven’t yet made cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off – I never understood cutting off the crusts, but I’m sure there was a logical explanation.

Because we are still going out with the dogs after dark; there was another toad in the yard around 2 this morning. I have no idea where they’re coming from!

Because LSU beat Ole Miss yesterday and I get to watch the Saints play on TV this evening.

  1. Marmite? Malt vinegar? Sardines on toast? Well, I have you pegged! LOL

    As for the crusts: even the bridge club ladies of the 1950s and 1960s midwest did that. Make the sandwich, cut off the crusts, cut it into triangles. I never minded the crusts on my peanut butter and jelly, and I loved bridge club days because I got the crusts from the ladies’ sandwiches.

  2. What is a cucumber sandwich? I have read about them often in my books. You eat a lot of sandwiches. Is this to be kind your tummy after your treatments?

    We walk Manson after dark because it gets dark early now. We, Swedes, just go on almost as usual. If we didn’t, we would never get out. Glad to hear that you are able to walk them.

    Ia hope you have a good night with peaceful and deep sleep.

  3. I’ve never heard of marmite. But I love cucumber sandwiches! I love making sandwiches with as many veggies as possible…first cheese, then tomatoes, cucumbers, red or yellow peppers, a few sprinkles of red onions…yum! My Mom used to cut the crusts off because I didn’t like them. I still love crustless sandwiches at church luncheons or “high” afternoon tea, but leave them on when I make them for myself.
