What was lost?
121 episode’s worth of time
Nearly 100 hours of wonderful entertainment
What was found?
A personal experience unlike any other. Call me melodramatic, but that show was life changing! Not so much in a “I’m going to live my life differently” way, but in a “I will never forget that” way. It was almost like I was on The Island too.
I have to let the finale completely sink in before I write about it (and I promise to do so in a closed space so I don’t spoil the show for any of you – because I KNOW you are all going to start watching, right!? It’s all on Netflix!) But in general, the ending was satisfying and an appropriate way to end such an adventure. I wasn’t let down. (But I do still have lots of questions to sort through! The internet will have answers…)
Jacob Hillary over for dinner so she could enjoy the finale with us.
A formal invitation was sent…
She arrived with a pineapple!
We made pizza and salad as promised
Matt style with 50% whole wheat crust (I’ve been egging him to get back to 100% WW!) with cheddar, peppers, mushrooms, and tomato mash for sauce [simply fresh tomato sautéed in a pan to make into a sauce – easier than opening a runny jar and only using a quarter cup!]
Plus a side salad with goat cheese and the pineapple!
More on the side for island snacking
Enjoyed in front of the show, of course
And that special dessert? Jeni’s ice cream!
I only regret using a mug because my tongue could not lick the last drops out! This is the best ice cream flavor in the whole wide world, islands included.
