4 NO's day

Sunday, June 30, 2013

For those who asked yesterday:

Lin's Grilled Potato Packets

Pull out a sheet of foil approx. 14X14inches or larger.
Spray top of foil with cooking spray.
Add two T margarine(or to taste).
Add two to three small sliced potatoes, with skins(your preference).
Add very thinly sliced onions(we add two whole slices).
Pepper to taste.
Add three to four ice cubes.
Fold foil on top and fold ends in.
Place on grill for twenty to thirty minutes, checking in-between for done-ness.

We slice them thinner sometimes, they will cook faster.
You can add any spices you wish. you can put these in a campfire too... nearer the outside... We check them every ten minutes.

I made these packets up early in the morning, DD added the ice cubes on her way out to the grill.

4 NO's Friday

Friday, June 28, 2013

I have today off , not by request, so I am up at four, in my routine,, paying bills, loving my Cheerios. For soem odd reason, last night I dreamed i bought a little scooter, like the one in Roman Holiday,, and could not figure out all the buttons and workings. I was visiting with cousins in Dearborn, MI and holding up traffic, it was nighttime and raining, I was dragging that scooter all over Detroit!!
I was exhausted when I awoke!! I will take a nice nap later,, a cat luxury...

Did not break my four no's last night, even though DD had a dish of blueberry pomegranate ice cream in front of me. I love blueberries. I drank my homemade root beer slurpee and it was not even painful!

Today I am off to visit mom, check out dad's house and more cleaning. Prepared for a 4 no salad and some tuna salad.

    A dessert and a night time snack are 2 different things. I always enjoy just a protein before bed or evening and it may even include a teaspoon of peanut butter. Glad you're doing well. Keep up the good work.

4 NO's still going!

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Yes, it certainly is NONONONO!!
I am so happy that it is summer and I can eat fresh fruits though.. Usually no fruit after four-ish though,, either egg white or cheese stick for protein before I go to bed at eight, BUT I have noticed that I am hungry all night and actually wake up hungry in the middle of the night.
IT is extremely humid her eagain99% humidity today,, in mid 80's but temp feels like 100's. DD did mow our lawn but said she darned near fainted form the humidity..
she felt hot outdoors, but did not realize HOW hot until she opened the patio door to go inside the house. She said it was like entering a freezer!! (74 degrees).
Michigan is either freezing or hot and humid in the past ten years. the climate changes are not exactly subtle.
