Well, been a few days since I was here, been super busy at work trying to keep everything caught up to date so I could enjoy the next four days off and to myself. Everyone will be at school and work, so have the whole house to myself.
I laugh when I think back to my younger days (about 100 years ago or so!!) ..... when I had the house to myself, it was time to fill it with friends from school and misbehave just 'cause we could. I really don't know how I lived through some of those times, but, well, here I am, still kicking!
Now it means time to myself, peace and quiet, time to rest, read and enjoy the leisure time alone.
My, how things change as the years go by. I look at my kids and wonder what they do when I am not here ......... Hummm, that's a very scary thought if I didn't trust them so much (they are post teenage years thank goodness)
Have a nice day at work tomorrow folks, LOL
and ............ (party alone I gotta say)

You won't believe how low in calories this margarita recipe is.
Plus, it's loaded with Vitamins A and C and potassium!
But remember, just because it is low in calories and has some vitatmins and minerals, it is not healthier to overindulge, but it is harder to resist. One is good for you, 5 doesn't make it 5 times as good for you!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
1 oz carrot juice
1⁄2 oz red grapefruit juice
1⁄2 oz lemon juice
3⁄8 oz agave nectar
1 1⁄2 oz Tequila
Combine all ingredients, shake, strain over ice into a short tumbler. and here is the calorie count:
162 calories 17 g carbs 20 mg sodium

Love Fridays, but only at the end of my work day. I have never seen a clock move so slowly than on my Fridays!
Love Saturdays, Love Sundays, but I can't keep up with the clock it goes so quickly!
What the he**^ll is that all about? !

A vacuum salesman appeared at the door of an old lady's cottage and, without allowing the woman to speak, rushed into the living room and threw a large bag of dirt all over her clean carpet. He said, "If this new vacuum doesn't pick up every bit of dirt then I'll eat all the dirt."
The woman, who by this time was losing her patience, said, "Sir, if I had enough money to buy that thing, I would have paid my electricity bill before they cut it off. Now, what would you prefer, a spoon or a knife and fork?"

Well, I've tried those 30 minute meals they talk about, and I must say they taste for the most part like that's all the effort put into it is only 30 minutes worth.
Salads don't fill me, at least for more than an hour. I must admit, I get much fuller on potato or macaroni salads, but then the purpose is defeated of course.
I have to feed two adult girls (my loving daughters, well, for the most part loving anyway) and a seven year old granddaughter to consider as well.
We are all busy all the time, on the go to this or that, so don't have an enormous amount of weekend time to cook and freeze. And the girls are busier than I am!
I know slow cooker meals are a good idea, but haven't found many recipes I have been impressed with there either.
I do stir frys, and the Canadian version of Chinese food, but that gets rather repetitive after a while too.
I am really, really not fussy, I know it's sounding like I am, but it's all the restrictions that are making it difficult to offer some variety while still staying with in the limits that are healthy to maintain.
Come on guys/ladies, I'm sure you all have some wonderful things to share here. Might even help out someone else Sparking? Oh, and thanks in advance for the ideas!
