You've probably read about Kathleen and I's "lifestyle change" before but ...
In 1994, Kathleen and I changed over to a low saturated/low fat diet ... we have stuck with it ever since ... the book I read that got us going on it allowed you to "bank" your saturated fat calories over any 7 day period of time ... as such, Sunday dinner became our "splurge day" meal of the week ... we "banked" less than our daily allowance of saturated fat and then "withdrew" those calories from the "bank" on Sunday evening ... this is now the night for red meat, lamb, bacon, butter, sour cream, cream, etc. ... we usually take turns preparing Sunday dinner ... this is also the night we open a "special" bottle of wine ... usually one of the reserve or single vineyard bottlings from one of the wine clubs we belong to ... of course music, cloth napkins, candles, and flowers are part of every night's meal except for "Survivor Thursday's" ...
