Good morning. I woke up around 5 a.m. and stayed up. It's looking gray outside but according to my phone app the sun should be shining soon. We finally got a bit of rain yesterday, but we could use a bit more.
I am so bad at posting family events. Yesterday was my grandson Kevin's birthday. He was our two pound miracle baby. Now he is a twenty two year old electrician. Wow, how time does fly! Kevin, I hope your day was awesome. I love you.
Well, I made my stuffed peppers yesterday and I must say I'm not proud of how they came out. They were edible, so I ate one of them, but they could have used a bit more taste. Plus they were a bit on the dry side. Ah well, I'll learn from this and maybe next time they will be tastier. They used to always come out awesome, but that was before the "no salt" diet.
I've been asked to post the meat sauce recipe, so give me a day or so to type it up and then I'll post it. I'm basically experimenting with different alternatives in my food right now. I could be happy with plain pasta most days but then I would not be getting the minimum requirements for sodium or calories. We should be getting a minimum of at least 500 mg sodium and 1200 calories a day. (according to Google)
It's tricky trying to make something tasty and stay within the requirement boundaries. I looked up a recipe in a Low Sodium cookbook. The list of ingredients took a whole page. That's all it took to lose me. I like recipes with four or five ingredients.
Today I have a happy photo to share. My great grandson Jack started his first day at high school this week. Now I have two great grandchildren in high school. Who knows, I just might make it to see some great greats! This is Jack's first day photo. When asked how he liked his first day there, he replied "I loved it!"
I found this very interesting image on the web and wanted to share it. I think it is wonderful how thoughtful this business owner is to be concerned for our homeless animals.
I enlarged the bottom of the photo so that you can read the small print. What a wonderful world it would be if each and everyone of us did our part to help protect our animals.
Deanne will be here in a couple hours to pick me up. We're going to do a bit of grocery shopping. I need to look over my shopping list to make sure everything I want is on it. I'm thinking I might want to make a couple pies this week. One for me and one for Deanne's family.
Before I leave today, I have an another image to share with you. (also borrowed from the web) This is just too cute.
Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
