  • Homemade butter

    8/2/2020 5:04:56 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    I tried my hand in making homemade butter. I started it with my Nutribullet Blender and then by hand. I put some sea salt in it. I have it in the fridge to let the butter and salt marry. I have had homemade butter before but never made it by myself. I did make it with my preschool class in high s... Read more

  • Fritos pie

    8/2/2020 1:03:31 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    I made a Fritos pie today with the meat filling from my burrito. I took some of my meat filling and heated it up. I put it over Fritos corn chips. Took a couple spoonfuls of mild salsa and shredded Colby Jack cheese. Took me a while to get through it. I am overfilled now. It seems like only on S... Read more

  • Admit to something

    7/31/2020 8:59:21 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    A week from today I am starting treatments for my anxiety and depression. Right now its going to be done by a video chat with the pandemic going on. My insurance company is going to be paying for them. It might help me get rid of the emotional eating that I have been doing. Maybe get rid of the ment... Read more

  • Cross your fingers

    7/30/2020 8:49:55 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    I walked uptown this morning in the rain so I can drop off the applications at the 2 places that I got them from. I already dropped off the John Deere application. I am just waiting for the appliance store to open up at 8:30 am. I am at the coffee shop until they open up. I am hoping to get either ... Read more

The ground beef that I have is 73/27 and the ground turkey is 85/15. I put some baby spinach in the sauce to keep it a little bit ... Read more

    7/26/2020 10:56:18 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    I went to a graduation party for my neighbors' daughter who graduated from high school this year. The food for the party was her favorite snacks. This was everything except for the tortilla chips and cheese dip. I snacked on the fruit and the veggies while I was fixing my tuna bacon pasta salad l... Read more

  • Changing regular doctors

    7/25/2020 11:45:12 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    Got a call from my regular doctor yesterday morning. They were wondering if I got the COVID test since they didn't have the results of it. I told the nurse no since I didn't have a ride up there to get it. She asked how I was feeling and I said better. So they weren't going to force me to get the te... Read more

  • Feeling sore today

    7/24/2020 8:43:59 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    I am sore this morning. I had a coughing fit on Wednesday from a crumb from the French bread pizza that I had for lunch. The fit was so bad that my stomach area in the area where my gallbladder was at cramped. It is still a little tender there. My hands are numb due to the weather. I already had ca... Read more

  • Overeating vs Binging.

    7/21/2020 9:34:50 PM, by KAYSEA6

    Overeating vs binging. I don't mind occasionally having seconds but I do not enjoy binging on junk food. I feel even worse after the binge because I know I am ruining my health. Last week I started binging on junk food, telling myself I would get back on track tomorrow. It took 5 day... Read more

  • Full of goodness

    7/20/2020 1:09:21 PM, by AUNTRENEE

I finished one yesterday and I cut the other up to have for salads and other dishes. I put on some cheese, heirloom cherry tomatoes, and li... Read more

    Hi All...how is everyone doing? This sure has been a stressful time and I don't see an end to it anytime soon. I've been using my "in house" time to catch up on cleaning out closets, writing my next book, face timing with family up in Maine, doing ceramics and making a few things for Christmas, and...

  • Spammers

    7/16/2020 9:10:57 PM, by LADYCALICO

    Has anybody else noticed an increase in spamming on Sparkpeople? I checked the Sparkpages of the questionable commenters when I see comments inappropriately posting a link trying to sell something and inevitably it seems to be some brand new "member" with little personal info on the page. It sa... Read more

    My DS and DGS left yesterday to go home - to return again in a couple of weeks. So DH and I had a relaxing and quiet day together. It began with a walk on the pier at Barnegat Light - where there were a couple of interesting sights. First, I ran across a seagull having a delicious cra... Read more
