    I've done that too, esp if mug has a chip in it. I burned my thumb the other day opening one of those "bowl" bags of microwavable popcorn on the steam- caused a blister! So everybody be careful with those too.

TGIF!!!

Friday, October 05, 2012

Only thing I hate about Fridays is that we have to turn in our "production grid" at work....have been having difficulties putting times in correct columns.

it is a huge grid with about 20 categories of work duties....

We have to account for every minute of the day and meet goals of number per hour.

Still struggling to get the zigzag out of my weight chart...

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Up and down...right now am on an up stroke. I know I snack on the wrong things and lately have been craving pistachios (and not measuring!!!). Also, have been helping my DH eat up his gummy worms before they get stale.

I will go back to frozen bananas for a treat (Dr. recommeded more potassum in diet). Speaking of potassium I had 1 cu of strawberries and a medium pear on my oatmel this morning and that was more potassium than a banana.

Tomorrow for breakfast will try a smoothie with brown rice protein, banana, strawberries and Miralax. (Dr. also recommended the Miralax daily.)

Going to gym to swim this evening. I am trying to go 4 times a week like I was doing when my weight was on the lower end of this zigzag. I know I have been pretty sedentary since the last toenail procedure. I am finally able to wear my regular shoes with arch supports so I will be able to walk further now (than minimally for the last 4 weeks).

Onward and downward on the weight chart and no upward zig or zag.... emoticon

    I want to thank you for mentioning that strawberries and pears have more potassium than bananas. I've been having charlie horse issues - a side effect of not having enough potassium in your system. I've been looking for some variety in my diet besides the bananas.

It sounds like you know yourself rather well and I know you will even out and do well.

    Do the best you can. Snacking gets to me, especially in
the cooler months. Must be the shorter hours in the day
or just the temp itself. Take care, hugs!

Something that actually tastes good made with zucchini

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Not this year but about 10 years ago, I had a zucchini plant that tried to "take over the world." It was so prolific, I had to invent something that tasted good with zucchinis in it (besides zucchini bread)....

So I chopped up lots of zicchini (not peeled) and mixed it (about 4 cupfuls or so) with different flavors of canned pie filling. I cooked it to combine the flavors and ended up with something that tasted just like the pie filling flavor and used it as an ice cream topper and also as jam. I probably added stevia or Splenda but am not sure.

Someone gave me 2 large zucchinis today and that is what I am going to do with it.

However, I actually like the flavor of it stir fried or baked in the oven with olive oil, also.

P.S. A lady from the Farm Bureau said this could not be canned as it was not acid enough, but I kept it in the fridge and even tried freezing some extra I had. It probably keeps in the fridge about 3-4 weeks.

    I love zucchini. I have it grated in fritatas and in chocolate zucchini cake. When I get large ones I cut them in half and stuff them. I use zucchini in place of noodles in lasagna, I put it in soups and spaghetti sauce. When I have more than I can use at one emoticon time I cut it in chunks the size of ice cubes and freeze it, then use it in my smoothies--one or 2 at a time with strawberries and you don't even taste it!

    I've always loved zucchini. I like to saute some onions, add crushed tomatoes and zucchini and simmer. Sometimes I top it with parmesan cheese.

    I shred the extra zucchini I have, pack into quart ziploc bags
and use it in casseroles. DD loves to make a vegetarian
spaghetti dish and the family loves it. Enjoy.

    I tried to freeze it to make bread with, with no luck, it turned to mush, never thought sbout canning it, but actually, you can buy it year round quite inexpensive, I never grow it anymore, it takes over my area completely also.
