welcome 2009

hope you all had a happy happy day today...being the first day of the year and all!

our day : great!

We stayed in our p.j's until nearly 1:00 p.m.!
We went for a nice walk outside for some exercise.
I worked on some fun projects (new ones, not the ones that I need to finish!)
We tried a new recipe for dinner (below).
And, that is about it. It was a great, lazy day.

Saucy Stir-Fried Pork
2 cups instant white rice, prepared.
1/4 cup Italian Dressing (we used Spicy Mango Chipolte, and doubled the amount)
1 lb pork tenderloin or pork chops, cut into strips

3 green onions, sliced in small pieces
