"What 'ya fix'en?"

Weight = 177.6 lbs, about the same as last weigh in.

Coinage = $2.02

Best Find = a “Ben scatter of pennies” (where someone just unloads all of their loose pennies on the curb) eighteen pennies in the scatter.

Comment:  “What ‘ya fix’en?”  On my fitness walk while checking the parking lot of Rouse’s Grocery for dropped coins, a “healthy” woman was heard asking “What’ya fix’en?”  I couldn’t hear, but given New Orleans culinary legacy and being that it was Sunday morning, it had to be something good—Gumbo, Jambalaya, Andouille, Crawfish Étouffée, Shrimp Creole, Muffulettas, Po-boys, Red Beans and Rice, Oysters Rockefeller, Trout Almondine, Bread Pudding, Bananas Foster, Beignets, and on and on.  These are all world famous for their savory tastes. Unfortunately they are all loaded with calories.  I treat myself to these delicacies but reduce the portion sizes and more frequently eat low calorie meals. 

What ‘ya fix’en for Memorial Day?  Burgers?  Use .93 lean and cut the cheese.  Have a good one.
