ANOTHER WEEK HAS WENT BY !

Friday, March 30, 2012

Wow i can't believe this week is almost gone and another month ! Since Monday i have planned on canning my potatoes and haven't done it yet ! Everyday i thought this is the day to can those potatoes .Oh well i can do them next week ! Did visit 91 year old and step daughter 2 times this week ! DH wanted to go to town today so we did that and done my 10 minutes exercise everyday ! Got devotionals done all week and spent extra time with the Lord . I HAVE HAD A GOOD WEEK EVEN THO I DIDN'T CAN POTATOES ! emoticon Also last fall neighbor gave us a bunch of turnips and even tho the canning site said they don't keep well i canned 21 quarts and they spoiled so i emptyed them this week what a mess and stink oh my Jars have been washed 3 times aired out ect and will boil them when i get ready to use them later on this summer so that was a big job i was dreading next time i try something new it will be 7 quarts to see if it keeps emoticon Tomarrow is weigh in for the spring challenge i have stayed in the 1300 calorie range and ate at least 5 fruits and vegetables everyday i sure hope i lose some . I COULDN'T HAVE MADE IT THRU THIS WEEK WITHOUT THE PRAYERS AND THE LORDS HELP ! GIVING UP ALL SUGAR IS TOUGH FOR ME ! I AM EATING A COUPLE THINGS SUGAR FREE BUT JUST WHEN I NEED A FIX !

    I had to chuckle when you commented on how the week had flown by. The older one gets the faster the days, weeks, months, & years speed by. I can remember as a youngster feeling that a year took forever to get through & now it seems as though I just blink & a year has gone. I remember, also, my mother telling me that when I was older the time wouldn't seem to sit still. How right she was!

Remember looking forward to the turn-of-the-century? I do & here we are already in 2012!

May I encourage you, VIcki, that as each day passes it will be easier & easier to be "sugar free". That was my experience when I went fifteen months without the stuff. Now I am determined to cut down - however, not cut it completely from my diet.

Be blessed with success!

    I've bought canned potatoes, but never canned them myself. Do you chunk them? Just add water and salt? Pressure can them?

Never tried canning turnips either. Guess I don't want to, huh? emoticon

    Thank you, Vicki, for this update.

I believe that Brenda needs our continued prayer covering now even more than before the surgery. I can well imagine that the healing process will be very painful. And the effects of chemotherapy are at best uncomfortable!

May our Abba bless her with His unique peace & comfort as He walks her through the healing process.

GREEK YOGURT ?

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I have heard so much about this on this site and i was wondering if it is good for you and if it is loaded with sugar ? I am not crazy about regular yogurt because it is to sweet ! What do you think ? Read an article today about a man who couldn't sleep at night and found that fat free cottage cheese before he goes to bed helps him sleep thru the night ! I don't have that problem and if i wake up i just get up and enjoy some extra time doing things i like to do but don't get the time to do it ! emoticon HAVE A GREAT DAY LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT MY FRIEND ! emoticon emoticon

    Plain Greek yogurt is definitely not sweet. I like the texture but not the taste. Most of it has more sugar than I care to consume.

I would be willing to try the fat free cottage cheese.

    Recently my MrV did the food shopping & ended up purchasing Greek yogurt for me. I found it a bit sour tasting. I am happy to have sampled it; however, I would rather enjoy my plain yogurt.

    You can get greek yogurt and add the fruit your self and pureeing it too. Just remember not to add sugar but if you get the natural sweeteners then you can add to your taste.

    I like Greek yogurt. It does have more protein, but also more calories. I get it as a treat once in a while when it is on sale because it is more expensive.

    I personally don't like any yogurt. However, my 2 year old loves Greek yogurt ~ my other kids don't like it. They say the taste is too "strong." I've heard that it has more protien and it's suppose to be healthier. I do know that it's thicker than regular yogurt.

Canning potatoes today !

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Today i want to can about 14 quarts of potatoes ! Somebody give us 10 lbs and i had 10 lbs so i want to can them before they go bad ! emoticon I like them canned it is some work but well worth it because like Easter meal there is usually DH ME and Daughter so i don't need but a quart of those potatoes there already done so i put them in a pan and bring them to a boil for mash potaoes and you can't tell i done all the work that day ! emoticonAlso when i have a bad day physically i can drain a can spray a teflon skillet with virgin oil and brown them got homefries ! emoticon Or even throw a can in the crock pot after everything is done and heat them thru if i don't want to peel potatoes ! If i feel good i do peel potatoes i only use them for when i been gone or tired and don't want to go thru all that ! I REALLY LIKE THE ZERO POWER DRINK POPSICKLES I KNOW THEY WILL HELP ME THIS SUMMER ! When i get gas i always pay 39 cents to get a large cup of ice that helps me to ! Sometimes they don't charge me for it when i buy gas depends on the cashier ! emoticonGonna cut up a cantaloupe today into slices and eat one slice up till Friday but sometimes they bloat me and i get weighted Saturday so after thursday i will back off till after i get weighted I SHOULD HAVE CUT IT UP SUNDAY BUT DIDN'T !! emoticon emoticonDH will help me eat it ! Have a good week try to plan on doing something everyday it gives you a reason to get up ! emoticon

    I, too, so enjoy your Blogs, Vicki.

They are like sweet visits with a good friend.

I, also, had not heard of canning potatoes - however, it makes complete sense in that I know they sell canned potatoes at the food stores. What a time saver canning them must prove to be.

Maybe one day you will give us a word picture of the process after the potatoes are cooked?

Enjoy a most productive & blessed day with Jesus, my Sister/Friend!
