Yesterday (Tuesday) did NOT end up being one of my better days! I did great until after I got back from supper at Mom's house. Instead of putting the casserole I'd made away in the fridge, I ate three-fourths of it. Totally unnecessary. And dumb... Read more

Had a six month follow-up appointment yesterday with my doctor. He has to see me every six months because of some meds I'm taking, but it's just a formality. According to their scales, I have lost over 40 pounds since I last saw him six months a... Read more

Chicken, Tomato and Zucchini Salad

This started with a recipe that I had copies onto my computer a few years ago but hadn't tried. It was for Tomato and Zucchini Salad, and the note says that it was based on a recipe in Better Homes and Gardens New Dieter’s Cookbook, 1997. The pr... Read more

Hmmm. Haven't posted much here lately, have I? I've been sticking with low carb, low cost eating. Not much special, which is probably why I haven't bothered to post. Big news - I bought a deep freeze yesterday! I've been sharing Mom's, but ... Read more
Mason Jar Salads
Saturday, May 06, 2017      6 comments

I've been making mason jar salads lately. Not quite the way I've read about them, but they work for me. I cut up a bunch of veggies and mix them all up in a big bowl, then divide it into individual jars. I use veggies that I can either use... Read more

My first week's shopping is done. It should last more than a week, actually, but I may get something from this coming week's ads, if there's anything really good. Here's what I got: Swenson's - pork rinds - $1.99 3 dozen eggs @ $.75 per... Read more
May Grocery Budget
Monday, May 01, 2017      2 comments

My food budget for May is $150. That's just for me and only includes food, not toiletries, paper products, etc. I'd like it to include anything food-related I get for my garden, too, but it doesn't have to. I have a bunch of food, mostly m... Read more
Post-Easter Casserole
Friday, April 28, 2017      2 comments

I remembered a couple of days ago that I had made 16 hard-boiled eggs to take to some friends to decorate for Easter, and then it didn't happen. I still had all those eggs, and they needed to be used. I couldn't find any recipes using hard-boile... Read more

This blog is really hard to do! It's hard to see or do much in the way of kindnesses when you don't leave the house. Did you hear about the guy yesterday who jumped in the water to save a woman who had been washed off the shore by a monste... Read more

I didn't leave the house except to shovel snow, so didn't see anything. The neighbor across the street and I chatted as we shoveled, though. It does make it more fun if you have someone else out shoveling, too. I saw a big kindness in Decem... Read more

Nothing big. I was out shoveling snow on Thursday and the neighbor across the street came out to make sure I was ok. I had been piling snow on the half of the driveway that I don't use, and decided to try to move it off the driveway. He th... Read more

I called my senators today. First time I've ever called an elected official. I had it all written out, so no problem. Right? Wrong. When the staff person answered the phone I started hyperventilating and was practically crying. Don't know why. I... Read more
