Still Trying!

Posting this for my Spark Friends that may wonder where I disappeared to.
My husband retired two years ago and we have been busy ever since. I just don't have time to spend much of it on Spark. I do miss it, but it is fun spending time with my husband and doing some travel.
We have a shell on the back of our pickup truck and we have a nice foam mattress bed back there. We have been taking trips to see the National Parks and monuments and camping along the way. Happy to be ...

Still have not reached my goal weight, but getting lots of exercise walking. We try for 10000 steps a day, 6 days a week. We usually make at least 5000 every day. Finding it hard to eat as healthy on the road, but we are learning to cope.
Thanks to my friends for all the encouragement.

Thanks for the mixer goodie. It does look like the one I got. I'm glad you're enjoying my picture blogs. I may be able to use my ice cream maker for good frozen yogurt too, that must be better than all the stuff I'm putting into the cream for the ice cream.

Have an excellent day! Today's holiday is National Spinach Day, be sure to indulge in a healthy holiday!

Hi 1Mankey. If you use carrots instead of cauliflower in the Bobotie recipe you will need to use about 60 - 80 grams. About 2 small grated carrots.

I think the idea of a transatlantic cruise sounds great -- unfortunately as with so many other things, what I think sounds great, doesn't sound so great to my husband. That's how it is with our food choices as well -- although no one ever said we have to agree to be compatible.

Hugs, Eve
