No fever this morning!  To celebrate the occasion, I made a batch of low-cal, low-fat brownies.  105 calories apiece; one of these babies is great with 1/3 cup of vanilla ice cream, which of course is more calories, but hey... sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

I also made some red Jello with fruit cocktail.  Cliff never seems to tire of sugar-free Jello.  He's funny that way; if he likes something, he doesn't mind having it every single day!  Sometimes he gets frustrated at me trying to liven his lunch up with a little change of some sort.

Cliff must be feeling better too; this is the latest he's slept in a week.  I'm starving, waiting on him to wake up!  I plan to dice the three morels I found yesterday and mix them in with some scrambled eggs.

holy crap I'm on a diet.  :(   If they were low carb I could have one.  Enjoy!!!  Glad to hear you are both on the mend!

You've been busy this morning.  If it would have been me I would have taste tested those brownies.  That is something I always do.  The warm just out of the oven heavenly taste can't be beat.  Too bad I can't join you for breakfast there today.  Hope Cliff is up soon for those good eggs and mushrooms.  Have a great day and so glad you are feeling better.  'On Ya' - ma

Glad you are feeling better, my friend

YUMMY! BROWNIES to celebrate the end of a fever?? LOL! You can come to my house anytime....I'll keep you baking up a storm!
I'm glad you both are feeling better. Now that your up and about, don't overdue it...that's that I did and I relapsed. HORRIBLE!
Yesterday I went to your other journal and caught up. Those Morels are kinda creepy looking....and I love mushrooms! But, I bet they are good in eggs.
Have a good day,

Ah, chocolate in any form and Braum's lo fat no sugar added frozen yogurt and you have yourself a great dessert. My world famous fudge can now be great with a` sugar/Splenda mix and half as`much.
Splenda is a life` saver for diabetics as is my wife.
(90 cal. and 20 in fat on the yogurt)---Vanilla Bean

Glad you guys are both feeling so much better.  Wish you hadn't tempted me with that picture of the brownies!!  Now I'm going to have to go get me something chocolate.

Those brownies look great!

Sugar-free jello is about the only food my dogs won't touch. They look at me as if to say, "That is NOT food!"
