Not sure yet, but I'm getting ready to start About the Daniel Fast Sunday, so I will be eating something with meat, sour cream, and every fattening thing left in the house. Ok, I still don't want to totally overdo it, but I do have some sour cream and Rocky Road ice cream left, so I will use them up between now and Saturday night.

Ah-ha! Stroganoff, with mashed potatoes instead of noodles. Rocky Road for dessert. Or Rocky Road now and stroganoff, potatoes, and a vegetable for dessert.

Sounds like a great way to clean out the fridge, especially the Rocky Road Ice Cream, stroganoff, sour cream, and mashed potatoes.

I'm extra pooped today from shopping, so I haven't started the Confetti Soup yet, but I did buy the scallops, and heated a large handful up in a stick of butter with garlic. MmmmMmmmMMMM.

I felt so perked up I heated and ate another handful. Really YUMMY.

Yeah, I'm always telling myself to get some labels out, but then I say, ahh I'll remember what it is
It's definitely sauce. And I'm pretty sure not the puttanesca that is also in the freezer. I'm hoping there's a meatball or two in there or maybe some sausage, but it's still pretty slushy/frozen. As soon as I know what it is I'll know what kind of pasta I'll be having

Definitely NOT raspberries! That's one fruit I could never get a taste for. And it grows wild all over here. They must like dry weather, they were coming up all over the place last summer. I could freeze some and send them to you, but they'd get lost with the other red stuff in the freezer

Sloppy Joe meat over jasmine rice with steamed and buttered Brussels sprouts and quartered mushroom caps simmered in butter and Maggi Seasoning.

I'm not a raspberry fan either! Sometimes they taste like soap to me. I don't mind raspberry jam or filling now and then, but that's about it.

Yes, I am. I thought about it and prayed about it a lot. It is only for 21 days. It is pretty restrictive but I can eat all the vegetables, fruits, and grains I want. I would have to cut out meat, dairy, sugar, artificial sweeteners, all drinks other than water. It is considered a partial fast, as you do not have to go without eating.

I am doing it for two reasons. One is because I am at my heaviest weight ever, and I am definitely feeling the effects of it. My blood pressure has been up, and I am not fitting in my clothes. The other reason is for religious reasons. This is not part of my church and it's not required.

Because I am diabetic, I can make certain allowances, such as chicken and fish, but I want to start out with just the vegetables, fruits, and grains and will play it by ear from there. I will monitor my blood pressure and blood glucose levels. I am not looking forward to giving up beef, cheese, and sour cream, not to mention my diet pop, but I am looking forward to jump-starting my weight loss, cleansing my body of gunk, and spending some productive time with God.

We had that homemade pasta that dried curly with pasta sauce and meatballs. The recipe for meatballs came from a Danish cooking site and they call it Italian meatballs. Whatever, they are tasty.

Spent all day house hunting so before I left I did something I haven't done in years, hamburger helper. I browned some ground veal (extra lean) and put it with the potatoes and cooked as per instructions. Left a note for the family to eat it with spinach and carrots. They will love it. Me, not so much. Tomorrow maybe ribs.
