Amy ...

My Baked cauliflower is pretty much the
same as the recipe that you posted... 

IMHO,  baking veggies makes a huge
difference in the way that they taste... 

Good thing as that is about all I can
eat besides fish and chicken. 

I sound like I am complaining,  but I
am really not.   I feel better now that I have
given up sodium...and all foods that are high
in it.     

Can't have it all...   
(But I tried !!!)

Good Evening Everyfriend!  Thank goodness, I haven't gone blind yet!  I hope it isn't too long before Gloria feels like saying "Hello"!  I sure do miss here!

I made a great supper tonight but I'm not going to go any further than that because I don't want to make anyone feel neglected.  I am going to say that part of it was a pint of AMY's idea for canned potatoes.  I drained them, washed them, dried them off and put them in a dish with a tiny bit of olive oil and some onion powder and pepper (no salt), shook them to coat and put them in the air fryer for 8 minutes.  They were delish!

I don't know what I'm going to talk about in here since cooking is about the only thing I enjoy doing any more.  And I really don't want those of you on special diets to back off. 

Now I'm going to take Mickie out one more time and head for the haystack!  Cooper won't be coming until 7:30 tomorrow so we won't have to get up in the dark tomorrow.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy, germ-free, snow-free fun day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

🎵My bags are packed....I'm ready to go🎵!  It was hard to know what to take as we will be in the 80's....but could be in some colder weather also! 

CALLIE, not sure about the driving plans but will let you know if we are going to pass near you.  IF not this time, hopefully we will have more opportunities in the future.  It would be great to see you again.  Megan our DIL was so excited to see a Brahms in AR. 

AMY, happy you saw Gloria checking in.....hope she is able to come in and chat with us soon.  We sure have missed her. 

JANE, I hope you will not stop telling us about all your cooking and canning.....I for one sure enjoy ready what you have to share with us.

SANDY, happy to read you are doing well and feeling so much better.  You have such will power and it serves you well. 

PATRICIA, hang in there and take care of you!  You are entitled to be a PITA! 

Heading off to bed.  Pleasant dreams.

Good morning..

Tad chilly out there with a temp of -6° but it is to be a nice sunny day. A day of rest here, just need to run into town and pick up a couple of items for my friend.

Jenny,safe trip and looking forward to hearing about it when you get back home.

Jane, love hearing what you prepare!!I do have the fixins for the chicken all but the chicken and will be trying that one next. Talked with David and said I had wanted scalloped potatoes but no potatoes and he told me about the boxed Betty Crocker ones. I did pick a box up and they aren't bad.......not as good as home made but still good.As you know they also have canned potatoes and don't keep fresh ones in the house.

Sandy , I don't mind some baked veggies but not my brussel sprouts..I like them sautéed in olive oil ,butter and bacon bits.

Better shake a leg and get with the program.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

AMY we keep Potatoes on Hand all the time. we have a flinch fry and spiral cutter both, so can do either. some times we Make scalloped with Ham. Have a great day.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  This has been one heckuva morning already.  I'd almost given up on Cooper but he showed up.  Frankie is definitely going to be late for work today!  But I think she must be doing a good job.  And I think they have a "forgiven" late time.  Maybe she makes it under the wire.

OK, with my potatoes for supper, I made fried red cabbage with onions and I had a ready-made shrimp patty from Davy's.  It was absolutey delicious and I have three more meals in the fridge...2 will go in the freezer and I'll eat one for supper tonight.

This morning, I've already fed two doggies and taken them for walks, made dog food, cooked 3 pounds of ground turkey to use for dog food, packed the turkey in bags the size I need for a batch of dog food, washed up all the dishes and put them away, put out the trash, and heaved a huge sigh of relief.

JENNY, I hope you have a lovely trip and when you're packing, don't forget to pack the face masks!  And don't forget to use them on the trip.  I know you're vaccinated but you never know who you're going to meet and where they've been.

I think I was a little hasty in welcoming Spring last week.  Our overnight low for tonight is predicted to be 14º and the highs are only to be in the high 20s all week.  I migh have to wash my "muxey" winter jacket before Spring comes. 

Nice to see AMY and LLOYD this morning.

I wish Everyfriend a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

Good morning. Our winter weather has been snowy here, there, and everywhere. We broke all records in October with 18 inches and hadn't looked back.

Jane, cooking, organizing, and decorating is my thing, and I have the bookshelves and Kindle to prove it. I may be on a special diet, but I've been doing workarounds for years. So, please, don't stop on my account. The only real difference is I don't use mixes.

Jenny, I had to laugh as I skipped some words in your post as I thought at first, you said I was an entitled PITA.   :2funny: Loved it!

Amy, I have my olive oil in a spray bottle and use that for oil. The last time I prepped, I had three large rimmed sheet pans, one of the carrots, onions, sliced potatoes; chicken, and one of sliced moose meat.   I placed everything on foiled pans, lightly sprayed with oil, and sprinkled with kosher salt and dried mushrooms.

After baking, everything was divided up into meal-sized amounts and frozen.

Gloria

Good morning everyone. It is good, I am home at last and slept great in my own bed las t night. Having my first  coffee in 5 weeks  tha t  tas tes like coffee and no t warmed up dish water. At leas t mos t of t he meals a t  rehab were pre tty tasty.
Son and DIL go t me se ttlled when we go t here. He came back la ter wi  th supper for me. Other so‎n be here later and bringing goodies, too. With all the meals we froze in the freezer should be OK till Yvette gets back here. Mos t likely by Tuesday. Nurse will be here  tomorrow
to make sure I need help.

2 hours later --son was here and just left. I now have a freezer  full of meat pies and TV dinners. Do you think they are both  trying to fatten me up? I could use a t least 20 more pounds on my frame, would bring me to 100#

DONKLAN  I will be 90 next month. Never thought I would live this long, none in my family  made it to their  late 70's.

JANE  I am here today but will no be saying much. St ill glad  to be home af ter 5 weeks away .

SHIRLEY  glad you are finally get ting the cataract surgery. I wish you a fas t healing time and better vision aft er.

JANE  I never realzed  till la ely jus t how much my sons care. Beig in the hospi tal and t hen rehab sure showed me.

AMY  brigh t and sunny here but still freezing cold.

Time for me to get lunch. Getting hungry.  Nice to know I was missed, sure makes me feel good.
Will try  and do better tomorrow. Have a good day and stay safe and healthy.

:nanadance:  :cheer:  :pineapple: to see Gloria.  Hi, Gloria! :wave:

Shirley

 :hb2: Welcome home, Gloria! :hb2:

Gloria, when you get a chance to talk more, I'm looking for tips on how to get muscle strength back. I have a feeling the bones in my knees are not as bad as the lazy muscles around the joints. Sounds like you've had good care & nice welcome home from the kids. Will tell you that I was worried and please tell Regina how much her messages meant to all of us.

Daughter is off to see her grands for a few minutes & then back with me. Plan is to go to bed super early so we can be up at 4:00 am to shower & get ready to be at the surgery place by 6:00. Sure hope the doctor is awake~~  Also hope I don't have to sit there for hours stewing, either.
Walked down to the river with the cats, they are not at all happy with a house guest as I am letting them stay outside while it is nice & trying to convince them that whole world outside is one big litter box!

I had a look under the leaves in the flower bed by the walk.... was shocked to see the bud of a jonquil that looks like it could open in DAYS. Guess it didn't hurt to leave the leaves over them & now will be a couple weeks before I can do yard work (so directions say in all my paper work.) Next Sunday the time will change & I do hate that job of changing the clocks that don't do it on their own. Will have to see if next surgery is also 6:00 am 'cause that will really do a body shock to be up & out of the house by 5:30 am.... might as well just flip my days & nights.

Better go baby the cats a little, they don't know what to make of me paying attention to someone other than them..... ;) 


Amy

Shirley, best wishes and prayers for tomorrow. When all is said and done you will likely tell us
 it was a piece of cake!! I do think the hardest part is doing what the Drs say...no bending no lifting..but for the short period of time you can do it.

Now the day is over....

It's a RED LETTER day!  GLORIA'S back!  HOORAY!!

I'm ready for the haystack!  My sister called around 9:30 and we just hung up!  Everything from the 40s, 50s and 60s has been gone over and put in place and we laughed until we choked at some of the stuff our kids did when they were little!

Now I'm going to hit the haystack so I can be ready to face tomorrow.  It's going to be cold again tomorrow but if there's no wind like today it won't be so bad.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy, germ-free, snow-free tomorrow. And may God bless us, every one!

Prayers go with you tomorrow, SHIRLEY!

Good morning..

Temp on the way up this week but slow to start this morning at -11°F
Hubby has blood work this morning and friends are coming this afternoon to drop off items and pick up items we picked up for them. Phone calls need to be made about up coming appointments and that is about it.

Shirley, thinking about you today.

Gloria, hope you had a good nights sleep in your own bed .Yvette will be so happy to see you tomorrow!

Phyllis and Joy hope all is well your way..

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Mickie and I are up but "attem" stayed in bed!  We're waiting for the boinger for breakfast and then a nice walk and then we'll think about what needs to be done....and if we come up with something, we might just ignore it unless it really hollers at us.

Frankie is off today and she said she might stop by for a visit.  Maybe the two of us will go down to Davy's and pick up some odds and ends if she feels like it. 

It's sounds kind of like "one of those days" coming up. 

I hope you all have a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow. 

Thinking of SHIRLEY and praying for her!

I'm up, the sun is up, and Gloria is back home so it is a very good day.  I was so happy to see you here, Gloria, and sounding so good.  Of course, your kids love you!

Shirley may have already had her surgery by now and I'm certain she is doing just fine and marveling at the beautiful color of the world.  Hope we hear from her soon.

Take care, All.

Good morning Gloria! It was very nice to see your post. Welcome back! I, too, am thinking of Shirley this morning and hoping to hear back when she feels up to it.

We're back on the upswing this morning at 17° and snow likely all week. I don't think I've ever seen the amount of humidity and snow we've had this winter. Other than that, nothing new or newsworthy today.

Gloria

I just stopped in to see who was around and there was GLORIA and there was GLORIA...again!  I think she's trying to make up for lost time and that's OK with me!  Come back as much as you want to, whenever you want to.  We love you!  And we missed you!

PHYLLIS, I sent a jar of your 15 bean soup to my SIL.  My daughter doesn't like it but he does and his mother used to make good bean soup so we'll see how he liked this.

My left palm itches like crazy.  My grandmother used to say (like everyone else) when you're palm itches you're going to get money but if it was your left palm you wouldn't get to keep it.  Unfortunately, it's my left palm! 

I got a few odds and ends done this morning and then I had lunch and took Mickie for a looong walk and now I'm quitting!  Unless something really bugs me later.   I hope SHIRLEY is doing alright and obeying orders.  I'm sure it all went well but I'm still keeping her in my prayers.

One down & one to go!

Not without at least one glitch... stuff they were using to numb or paralyze the eye had no effect, seems I forgot to mention that Novocaine didn't work & neither did the stuff today. It's only been about 60 years since last time I had Novocaine. :D  :-[   ....but something else did work. The BP was still over the top high so whatever they did took it down about 30-40 points fast enough to go on with the surgery. Got a clear patch over the eye & already BOTH eyes are seeing well enough to walk around, eat & even had a short nap. No sleep at all last night, kept thinking of things to take care of but still can't sleep today because of phone calls. Dr's office to see if I'm doing okay & pharmacy to say prescription ready for next week's surgery. Need to feed cats, they are upset with someone in the house full time.... at least nice enough for Tom & Callie to be outside, Tiger still doesn't want to go out.  Thank you ALL for the prayers and good wishes. Won't y'all be glad when this is all over & I'll shut up about it???? 

Gloria, so glad to see you here... smiles all around.  And all the rest of you keeping us afloat... hugs and thank yous .  Love, Shirley

:cheer:  :jump:  :happydance: Shirley!

I agree with Amy.  Don't try to do your 'usual busyness' for at least 24 hours.  The cats will survive and everything else will wait for you.  :smitten:

If I could reach that far, I'd be patting myself on the back.  Today I have finished (finally!) getting pictures and written stuff refiled from having been pulled out of this album and that scrapbook to do some family history stories.  This chore had been bugging me for I-don't-know-how-long and it's taken me several days to get it all done.

Then I went out to fill the suet feeders - and found two daffodils in bloom. The ones that had been peeking through got nipped by the recent snow/low temps but these weren't up far enough.  I saw fat buds on several others.  Yay!

Also found a bird feeder I'd forgotten about and filled it with safflower seed from the tube feeder I'd had those in -which wasn't letting the seeds drop into the feeding holes. I don't think squirrels like safflower seeds but this one does have the bar that comes down if they manage to get on it. 
Lots of squirrelly glares at the window and tail swishes because I had already managed to fix the one with sunflower seeds so they absolutely cannot get to those. :lol: 

And then I walked to the mailboxes at the end of the block for the second time in several months.  Either the weather or the temperature had made it way too easy to hop in the car and drive down/back.
A neighbor was going at the same time and it was so nice to have an in-person conversation.

And that's what's going on in my little corner of the world.

JaneS

Time to bid you all Good Night!

SHIRLEY! I'm so glad to hear that you're home and finished with one eye!  I thought it was probably the easiest surgery that I every had and I was hoping that you would too.  Now get some rest (you do know what that means, don't you? You sit on a chair or the sofa with your feet up and let someone else wait on you!) Or you can lie on the sofa or the bed!

CALLIE, you're so organized!  It would take me a lot longer than three days to reorganize!  In fact, I don't think I've ever been organized in my life!

I'm heading for the haystack!  I wish you all a peaceful night and may God bless us, every one!
