hmmmmmmm OK...1st of all this is a thread about food. So that's what I came here to talk about.
Do people who condemn others ever stop to think that they may not understand what the others may have gone through. Do they understand the contributions these people may make in their communities even though they do not feel the need to come here and brag about it. Well I am not here to preach to people about how to treat others, but I can say that when we choose to have nothing left to enjoy we are wasting our time, and quite possibly the time of others.

Even in times of grief, we were meant to find JOY when and where we can.
Even in times of grief there are still body's to nourish, elders to care for, volunteer work to do, food to cook and yes possibly even gutters to clean...
OMG

Oh by the way, hopefully this won't insult anyone, but we had meatballs, rice and cauliflower for dinner, very good too.
We had this meal while visiting family at my mother in laws house. I am so grateful for my husbands family as my whole immediate family has died of cancer. My mother, father, and sister. I am grateful for what I have. I also really enjoy carrying on the recipes in memory of my mother who made us all feel warmly welcome with her smile, laughter and comfort food. She's my hero.



I have an uncle and a couple of aunts left on my side of the family, and my wife just had an uncle and cousin pass away in the last week or so. The loss is a part of life, but it only has to be a physical loss for if they are remembered they are always with us.

Did delivery work and Christmas shopping yesterday so fast food was the order of the day.

OK so I am gonna go outside of the box here and talk about breakfast. YES BREAKFAST!! You gotta love weekend breakfasts. Today ours consisted of my husbands expert fried potatoes, scrambled eggs, delicately crisp bacon and cran juice. He so out does me at old fashioned traditional breakfast. He's been making it his weekend thing to cook me the brunchie time meal. I love it!!
( :shh: :crazy: :shh: He doesn't realize it but the secret is in my moms old cast iron skillets)

Afterwords I made tea. I am exploring the world of tea now as I am getting ready to add teas to my gift inventory. We may even have a few tea parties at a friends business on the track 29 boardwalk here. I have been experimenting with different types of tea and different additives like fresh honey, lemon, orange slices, orange peel, to name a few, and I'll tell you when prepared properly tea can be very satisfying. I am avoiding the whole microwave the cup and the teabag thing, and using an electric tea pot to heat water and steeping in a pretty ceramic teapot. I think the act of doing it is part of the whole scheme of it. A very relaxing, nurturing feeling enters me when I make my tea and take the first fruity sip.

Dinner? Taco's. The ones I was going to make last night but forgot I was going out for dinner.
Life is good today. I woke up. That's always a good start to the day.

We have some friends who visited from Texas and discovered one of our favorite stroes has the largest selection of teas they had seen. They tried some of the flowering teas and now we get shopping lists from them. Some of our daughter-in-law's family will be getting a selcetion of flowering teas this year for Christmas.

I know, I know .... Sorry for the intrusion ... especially the crisp bacon (delicately fried) ... and not to be outdone, this is something that I have and could be had for breakfast if you dare!

"Amazing Get Your As Out Of Bed Smoothie"

I c. almond milk
1/2 c. seasonal fruit
1 tsp maca root
1 tsp spirulina
2 tbsp organic maple syrup
1 tbsp shredded ginger
1 tsp pure lemon juice
2 tbsp molasses (iron!)
one shredded apple or pear

you can also add some crunchy peanut butter. Yum.
Do not add banana as much as you may be tempted.

Blend. Drink.

PS: Glad you started the other conversation. Really. It needs to be discussed.

The smoothie sounds good. I drink a smoothy quite often by Beachbody (full of superfoods) and I add banana and peanut butter quite often, it makes it super creamy and way more palatable.

Last night for dinner I sauteed chicken thighs until nice and brown, and served on pasta with marinara, along with green beans sauteed with sliced garlic. We also had a semi colorful salad on the side. (Lettuce, red onion, tomato and celery).
It was very good.

Kind of an odd evening .... bacon, egg and cheese biscuits for us. My wife likes breakfast food all day sometimes and I really will eat nearly anything.
