My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

DAY1: Starting fresh with dinner

ARGH! I typed the below posting and even mentioned it on facebook before I realized that I typed this in the wrong blog!  Okay, if you want to read it, I won't delete but I'd prefer if you'd go over to my diet, er, gettin' healthy, blog and follow me.  I need all the support I can get!

Okay, here it starts. Hopefully regularly blogging about getting healthy will become a habit, because if you read my last entry, you know that it's absolutely imperative that we get healthy. We 3 are all kinds of messed up. Kid gaining weight because of his epilepsy and med side effects. Hubby with the prostate thing. Me, just absolutely huge, unable to walk without a cane, and nearing a heart attack.

Unfortunately we all have different food tastes and nutrition requirements. I almost always fix 3 different dinners, so don't blast me. I'm used to it, and it works.

WE 3:
I just gave all 3 of us 1 portion of V8 Splash (strawberry banana).  It has veggies in it too.

ME:
Honestly, I don't feel like eating dinner. I'm still full from lunch: salad, burger with avocado, strawberries.  I'll drink a protein drink in a minute (need to go back to kitchen to check on progress of milk that I have heating to make cheese).  Might have a little normal tomatoey low-sodium V8 too.

HUBBY:
Gluten-free pizza with spinach and feta cheese, with some of my homemade roasted garlic and bell pepper goat milk cheese on it. He also got a normal tomatoey low-sodium V8, and is drinking some Traditional Medicinal prostate tea mixed with spearmint.

KID:
Made him a snack meal (something I've done since he was a baby). Pre-cooked bacon, almonds, dried peas, baby carrots, sesame rice crackers.

Time to go make the cheese. Hubby has requested some cinnamon/agave nectar cheese for breakfast snacking so time to round up the ingredients. Milk is almost to boiling point. Enjoy your day!
