Snowy Monday

Monday, November 15, 2010

My regrets to anyone who would liek to share my cabbage rolls, can't send them any way I know... But I will think of you when I eat them. I had them for lunch today and there are still some frozen for another time. I can't believe how easy they were to make. I always look at it as a chore, but this time it was quick.... freezing the cabbage and then letting it thaw overnite, takes so much of the work out of them than the old way of boiling the cabbage and waiting till it cools and then cutting it etc....

Well, it's beginnign to look a lot like Christmas here... snow is really coming down. I must go walk home - at least with the white snow, it doesn't seem as dark.

Breakfast - oatmeal, prunes and almonds
Lunch - cabbage rolls (and a smokie!! due to low attendance at school today they were offered to teacher and how could I pass it up>)
Supper - pickerel, lentil, sweet potato and chickpea curry (SP recipe)

Well, tired today, but with so many away for the Memorial Service, we had a crazy mixed up day, only ended up with 4 kids for the afternoon.... So they did their Cree cultural dance and then we did mad math and a listening exercise and it was home time...

I had a major accomplishment today. I organized a Weather unit last nite and decided to make it into a booklet so everything is together.... had done this before, but changed it and had a little extra work to do, but I got it all bound on the binding machine after school, so I'm good to go.... Well, I'm off, have a good evening all.

    Hi I am glad you found the easy way with the cabbage rolls, it does help when they get so wilted and they wrap so tight.
It sounds like your day went well. I was able to actually walk outside it was areally nice walk I saw a bald Eagle close up . It was fabulous. Hope you are enjoying yourself wherever you are . I hope you read my blog .Pat in Maine.

    Hi Lila
I knew you couldn't send the cabbage rolls over the internet, I bet sometime in the future, they will find a way. Did you think of us while you ate them and smile.
It feels like you had another great and somewhat stress free day. That is so good. Each day like that is one more step in getting back in balance.
I am going to give you a challenge, I wrote a blog today on the season to gain weight and several have actually made a commitment ( not sure they knew) that this season would not be a gain. So, It is time, you can read it and make a commitment to your self for the balance of 2010.
Thank you for sharing this, I feel some god energy reappearing.

Some Sunday

Sunday, November 14, 2010

Aw Darn! Dh found the cabbage rolls too spicy... I'll have to eat them all by myself!!!! (Already got them portioned and frozen!) Yum!!

Well, got a hot bubble bath this am, and that was so much nicer than yesterday's quick and cold bath!! Good food on the menu again today!
Breakfast - 3 eggs with onions and red peppers, pear
Lunch - almonds, mixed veggies, persimmon , plum
Supper - pickerel, fried potatoes and onions

Now, I am at school and just the heat in hear alone, I should be dropping off he pounds, which reminds me to get a bottle of water too!

Feeling good today instead of the usual overwhelmened and feeling like there is no way I can get everything done in time... I wonder if I am forgetting something??

Well, the plan is to finish up and get home before dark, I even walked down here to ensure I leave before 5.

    Hi Lila
It seemed like a pretty good Sunday, your writing shows you being relaxed and that is good,
This is good way to start the new week.
By the way , is there some way that you could send a couple of cabbage rolls as an attachment, haven't had one in years. Now, that is something we should invent a new way of sending things.
I hope you get a good nights sleep and have a great week.

    Sorry about the cabbage rolls. I just read about the other recipe. We went to a concert and we ate out with the soloist and his wife and others of course. We did have a great time.
Lila you do seem to be doing better with your planning and your food. and feeling good, great job. Have a great time at your conference.

So It's Saturday

Saturday, November 13, 2010

Well, another rottens leep... a pill should certainly be in order tonite.

But, I cooked a nice big pot of oatmeal for breakfast and I've been craving cabbage rolls, so after my bubble bath - which for some reason we didn't have much hot water for, I made them. It looked like a huge bowl of rice and ground meat, but it only actually made 12 (pretty big) cabbage rolls. And I tasted one already and the spice is nice.

Then I read for awhile and had can salmon and cucumber and tomato for lunch. I went to school about 3:30 and it's 7:30 and I am getting ready to go home. I'm hungry and those cabbage rolls are beckoning to me... And I realized I have to really get 2 weeks ready cuz I will be away on Monday and Tuesday next week... So, I made a good deal of headway, but as always more to do...

So home I go and wish you were all here to enjoy a great supper!

    Actually I do too. I like cabbage rolls but DH does not so I rarely make them for myself. We really do love cabbage though. I amke it with onions and apples and we eat it with pork and carrots and peas. Almost all of my vegetables in a single meal. Along with 3 ounces excellent lean protein. Tomorrows dinner. We are off to a concert in the afternoon. Pat in Maine. HUGS -Enjoy!

Friday

Friday, November 12, 2010

Well, safe trip to town yesterday and home today with no wildflife on the road, and a good thing too, cuz as we came home today around 3-4pm, the sun was low in the sky and made visibility very difficult.

I had a massage yesterday, so arm and neck are a bit tender, not sore though, my heat bag on my neck right now will probably ease that off. It was pretty crazy at the stores with all the boxes around as they try to get their Christmas wares out. Last nite was weird, sil had invited us for supper and to play cars last nite. We got there and she had a friend who'd been locked out of her house waiting for her husband to come home. Then sil went out to Bingo - brother actually had to work late - unavoidable- so that was our evening to visit! Anyone see anything wrong with this picture? So, today they had early dr. appts. and they called to have us meet them for breakfast, but we begged off, after a bad nite of sleeping and I wasn't feeling good. Anyway, when they came home she had picked up Basa fillets for supper and was surprised to find we weren't staying another nite. So, not exactly good communication, but brother will be working tonite and I'm sure I said we were only going for the day.

Well she had heard me about what I am not eating during my de-tox, and she prepared rice and stiry fry so that was nice.

Well, it's report card time again, so I need to be working on them this weekend. I always have a hard time getting my head around them and actually starting them.

Meals were weird yesterday but pretty much stayed on track:
Breakfast - oatmeal and cranberries
Lunch - almonds, rice stir fry veggies anc chicken
Supper - pork roast, can corn and potatoes

Today, we shopped and left town about 2pm..
Breakfast - fried potatoes and tomatoes, cashews
Lunch - Cashews, sushi, apple, chicken flings
Supper - ???
I had a nap earlier, so must go cook something (after I watch Coronation Street)
Hope everyone is having a good weekend...

Wednesday, and the week's work is over.

Gives another meaning to "short and sweet" - only 2 days with students this week...

We had our Remembrance Day ceremony today and had a good community turnout and it went well... took almost an hour...I will have to try to put a link in here tomorrow or Friday for the Veterans Affairs Canada site (I think) where they plan music for In Flanders Fields and show a ballet to the words. It's beautiful.... Even my kids watched it about 6 times, only a couple minutes long, but so worth it.

Well, off to town tomorrow, I have been doing fine eating and even exercising, while I'm at home, but this will be a temptation. I told sil that I am on a detox and not eating break or milk, so hopefully, she will cook things I can eat... I was thinking of calling and asking her to make cabbage rolls, I just feel like having them, But I didn't, so maybe I will pick up ingreds. myself and make them...

Very tired, so "short and sweet" on the blog too.
Breakfast - oatmeal with prunes and almonds
Lunch - pea soup, apple
Supper - pork breast bones, sweet potato fries, cooked cranberries, turkey barley veggie soup

Nite all!
