Here's the thing any of Jo's books are just as good as her diabetic ones for diabetics. Her diabetic ones are just compilations of her newsletter recipes. They are all great for diabetics, as they have the exchanges and nutritional breakdowns in all the recipes, which really is what helps as diabetics.
So I would just get what you can. I have ALL her books, and most her booklets, and ALL the newsletters. So I speak from experience here.
Check out my blog though for a lot of the recipes, and judy's blog as well.
Well, this is the coolest August we have ever had here! It's usually in triple digits and not this cool till late october or early november. But, I'm loving it! So yes I can feel fall in the air, also my most favorite season!
Yesterday we did soooooooo much. Went to church, went out to lunch, signed a lease on a home, bought four large appliances (our first washer and dryer ever in life!), and then went to a back to school pool party for Lela. Whew, I don't think I have ever done so much in life in one day! Oh and moved two truck loads of our stuff to our new home through the day too!
Judy there are hundreds of JoAnna's recipes in our recipe thread. Heather has links to a bunch and I took the ones we posted and put them in catagories. If you want Jo's diabetic cookbook I'm bet you could find it at Abebooks.com They have many many used book sellers and I have had great luck ordering from them. I got some of my HE books there. I would love to have the newsletters from the beginning through the 90's . My collection started with 2000
This has been a cool summer for those of us in the Pacific Northwest. I did not enjoy the few hot days, but the rest of the summer has been a blessing.
I regret that I have not been able to acquire all of Jo Anna's books. She was such a wonderful friend to those of us who frequented Healthy Exchanges while she was with us. I remember well how she soothed ruffled feathers among us. Please send recipes when you use them.
The way it is here, it was not summery weather most of the summer and that's just the way it is. Those of us who live here are used to it and we think 70 is hot. I had to chuckle after the 90 degree day one of my church friends who is an Arizona transplant said she actually got warm that day.It's raining this afternoon - something we haven't seen for awhile.
Labor Day weekend is sneaking up on us again so soon. Our youngest son will be here for the weekend and I need to plan some meals. I got a great new George Foreman grill that also has a waffle maker attachment so I will make waffles for the guys. Time to haul out the cookbooks. Remember when Cooking Across American came out? I haven't used recipes from it for awhile but I remember how people on HE raved about Cafe-au-Lait Chocolate Chip Bars and Lemon Meringue Pie.
This seem to be Taco Season. I've made tacos, taco salad, taco baskets and am still hungry for more. I have a package of ground buffalo in the frig. and a lot of ground chicken out in the freezer. I am considering which to use when I make Taco baskets or salad again.
I am having trouble staying within the grams allowed for Diabetic's meals. I wish now I had ordered Jo Anna's book for diabetics. I am sure she had good ideas that stayed within the correct range.
I haven't done any moving to speak of yet today and I am currently ready for a nap. Talk with you later,
Jan it is so good to see you posting. We all miss you. The blackberries sound yummy. Aren't car troubles the worst? They always hit at the worst times. No fall in the air here yet, enjoy your fall days!
Louise I miss you when you don't get a chance to post. Enjoy your Sunday!
Patty so glad you had a good time at the party. It is fun to get family and friends together and just catch up on life.
Water-yes food plan- yes moving- sadly not enough.
Ann the taco casserole sounds good. I use to make the Taco Bake from April 98 newsletter. I really like it. I thought your hot weather was over. Sounds like sleeping in the motor home would work out great.
Good Morning. You ladies are up and at em early. GS is washing cars today so DH took ours over to DS house and will also fix them breakfast. Eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy. Sure not my kind of food.
Louise, you are so sweet. I'm doing just fine. This week will be lab work and Dr. app't then chemo the following week. I'm on a 4 week rotation and this will be the 3rd chemo of this group of 4 per session. I'm with you - no fall in the air yet.
Jan, we won't feel like fall until late October. Sept. is normally our hottest month. We did have a very hot week a couple of weeks back. This week has been low to mid 70's. and the sun has been missing although out today. When I logged on the computer the temp said 67.
DH has finally taken #2DS advice and is going to have an electrical outlet put in at the end of the drive near the garage door for the motor home. It just fits in our drive way and the power from the house sockets are not strong enough to run the motor home air conditioner. If this gets done than if we get the Santa Ana winds that can come in Sept/Oct we can sleep out there. We won't keep the motor home on the drive but just bring it to the house if we get the heat wave. It the Santa Ana winds come in Nov/Dec. they are not that hot. Just like summer in Az. when they arrive earlier.
Any one ever made a Taco Casserole? I made one yesterday for the first time that was pretty good. I followed a recipe on a box of taco shells but used some salt free tortillas I had instead of crushing the shells. I also modified their recipe. It called for a package of taco seasoning and I dug out my recipe box with seasoning mixes and made my own and then just used a little.
Patty, sounds like you had a very nice family get together. That is one thing we have never experienced being a military family and never living near either family. Our kids don't even know their first cousins or aunts and uncles which are all gone now.

Good morning We've only had two or three days over 90 degrees this summer. It's always good when it cools down again.
TOPS came out with some great food exchange cards in their August/September magazine and I've been having fun using them.
We were out of town visiting friends for an old neighborhood reunion and our pickup started acting up so we ended up bringing it to a repair shop and rented a car to get home. We should hear what was wrong on Monday and then will drive our car up to get it and most likely will leave the car there to find out what the occasional squealing sound is. Don't you just love car repair expenses? At least we don't have any monthly car payments.
Our son picked a huge amount of blackberries yesterday and made himself some syrup (he can't eat the seeds-so no jam). We will probably go out to pick soon.
Do you feel fall in the air where you are? My very favorite season!

Good morning, The party was such fun. My cousin is the sweetest lady. She is much younger than we are, I think only 57 or something like that. Everyone was so nice to us, I love that we get along with my ex and his wife, my cousin.
OK, how was yesterday? It was in the low 90's and humid here...oh my
