I'm wondering if this was originally a recipe that called for a 28 ounce can of solid pack pumpkin.

Dishes are another story. For everyday I have 2 different sets of Corelle, both with missing pieces. For holidays I have a cheap set of china in my china closet, service for 12. The "service for 12" was what made me buy it so I would have enough matching when company comes.

Addie, using a smaller plate doesn't work for me. I just fill it up twice! LOL I can beat any diet tip you can give me.

We had to make him go asleep. He was 19 years old and he had of the cancer. I cried so very much!
When I die, I wish for many pets to tell me good-bye. That is so nice, yes?

That was very nice that the cat went to the funeral. I wanted to take my dogs to my daughter's wedding but DH would not allow me!!

I have a few things going for me. I had part of my stomach removed so I can't eat very much anyway. And due to the surgery, I never get hunger pangs.

When I was told that I had diabetes, I was determined to get off the medication. So I went to the smaller plate and would not go back for seconds. I have been off the insulin medication for a couple of years now. I control it by diet alone. When I take a helping of ice cream from my freezer, I put one scoop in a custard cup. I have three different size scoops for cookie making. I use the smallest one for ice cream.

Also I have never had a really sweet tooth. I have an apple pie sitting here for Spike to pick up. It doesn't even look tempting to me.

I do make a concerted effort to not tell someone how to eat or live their lives. What works for me, may be the devil's own recipe of disaster for someone else. I just love it when the residents here are talking about what their doctor said to them. "You should go to my doctor." You should ask your doctor for the medicine I take." You get the idea.

My only advice to everyone is "Do what works for you."

Tomorrow I will be working the Pumpkin liner, a tourist train that goes to a pumpkin patch.
According to the deal I made with Kayelle, on the way home I stop at Yanni's, a Greek restaurant, and pick up dinner: Gyros, souvlaki, etc.

I picked up a second job. 3 x a week, Fareway foods, meat clerk. The extra $ will help with the crazy rising pricing of health care.

I have a bump behind my heel. I wrap it all of the time. Anyone else ever experience this?

Katie H is getting surgery for her heel bump on Monday.

Jeez, SB, hope things turn out OK!

Listening to the heat in my apartment come to life!

This is the first day that they have turned the heat on this season.

The smell of scorching dust on the radiators is a testament to my cleaning skills!

As the gurgling and hissing intensifies I will need to check for leaks in the system.

Remember the Pajama Game?

Cooked the 20+ pound turkey that was taking up a lot of freezer space (it was done 2 hours before it was supposed to be, thank goodness for instant read thermometers). Let it rest, carved up the breast (I'm one of the crazies who doesn't like dark meat) and saved out a couple legs for DH. The remainder of the meat parts and carcass went into the stockpot with a few sorry looking carrots, some celery tops with leaves, and a quartered onion with skin on, along with as much water that would fit.

I also made gravy from the drippings. Good gravy, it's wonderful!
