Ewwww! I hate upper respiratory infections. I don't know how many times we have spent anniversaries and holidays with one of us sick. One anniversary our preschool son was sick and puking his socks up. I set up a card table close to his room so hubby and I could at least try to eat between his upchucks. Of course this little tiny voice would say, "Daddy, what are you eating?" LOL. Hubby said," I'm having some potatoes, Buddy." And, my son would say, "Daddy, could I have some potatoes?" We would give him a tiny bit of potatoes and within minutes up they would come. Then in a few minutes the tiny voice was back, "Mommy and Daddy, what are you eating now?" This scenario went on for quite a while until he asked the question again and I interjected "We are having sweet pickles and you don't need any pickles." "Please, Mommy, I want a pickle." Against my better judgement I let him have a sweet pickle and up it came just like everything else. This time the puke was getting pretty rangy and hubby and I were tired of the barf routine so I said to hubby, "I think I'm so done with trying to eat!" And he said, "Ditto!" So we gave up and went in the bedroom with the "sick puppy" who was much happier with us not eating while watching him suffer. He then started begging for ice cream, we gave it to him, and he actually kept it down. LOL.

I hope you feel better soon!!

am alive - if you can call not being able to breathe, unable to hear much or talk being alive. Yup I got the stupid cold from Aliegh. Didn't sleep last night due to spiking fevers. Hoping I can knock this out and not spread it to the mister. Our 20th anniversary is Monday and I would love to not be sick. emoticon

Pot roast is one of my husband's favorite meals. We all grew up having it for Sunday dinner or things like fried chicken.

I hope soon to have something more interesting to blog about the estate settling. LOL.

Reading your posts about pot roast is what caused me to have a hankering for it this weekend. I hadn't bought a roast for a while and, man, was it expensive. I remember when the kids were home and roast was pretty much a Sunday dinner staple.

The house closing is November 15 if it goes through. These days the real estate market is very volatile and a lot of sales fall through.

mmmm roast sounds good! My slow cooker is temporarily not being used for canning (just finished up blueberry jam) so I think I will do some ribs in it.

Bundling up to take a FREEZING walk today - its brrrrrrr cold here!

The world revolves the same as before no matter who is in charge so it's not worth fretting over. We have a set of checks and balances that prevents either side from doing all the kinky things they think up to threaten us with. LOL. Voters tend to balance things out so no one ever has too much power.

I voted and it was a nightmare. No one ever votes here and you can march right in and be out in 10 minutes normally. This year they are having the biggest turnout they have ever had. The place is packed and the line extends outside.

We are checking into a whole house generator. I want one and almost have my hubby on board for one.

The eats at your house sound great.

Good morning Beachers! Hope everyone is doing well (and got out to vote). I will be happy this political stuff will be done and over although super nervous about the potential. We have had wind storms over the weekend which meant I was sitting here with Aliegh without power for several hours. We are fortunate we do have a fireplace and propane stove/oven. I was in the middle of canning barbecue sauce when we lost it for 12 hours! Grrrrr but I managed to save my cherry bbq sauce and got it put up. Next on my canning list is a cranberry mustard!

All the food changes are in the sticky threads. Supercharged has updated food lists, has more recipes/food plans/success stories, expanded dining out section, more nutritional info, and a fitness program.

emoticon feeling I need a bit more structure I am DOING this plan- not trying emoticon anyway I am going to get the South Beach Diet book out of the library since they have it here in town-this is the foolproof diet one I think published in 2003 and anyway they don't have Supercharged at my library so I might request it. Other than the exercise are there any food differences? -something I should start now or know now?
I am on Day 1 of P1

I did spoil myself and bought myself a small fruit tray when I was at aquafit last night. Living by myself for now, it's the cheapest way to get a variety of fruits without having them go bad on me.

Swear Seattle area had a sympathy storm for the east coast. We had a huge wind storm, power outage, and major rain with now flooding. NOTHING like the other coast but it sure came out of nowhere. Funny when you are sitting out in the truck using the phone charger to charge up your phone. emoticon

Yesterday I spent the day in the kitchen. I made asian pear cranberry chutney which I am going to can today. Made some cauliflower mash, ribs in the crockpot, fried rice for the mister, pot of oat groats, and roasted some brussels - I have no intention of cooking for a couple days. Although a turkey...and soup sounds yum emoticon

Yesterday before I went to work I put a small turkey in the slow cooker for me. Well, actually I had to separate it and give the back and wing tips to the dog before it would fit into the slow cooker. I will not have to cook for a very, very long time.
Also last night I went to aquafit after work. Today I did my first 2 mile WATP in a long time. Tomorrow I am going to do a WATP in the morning and go to aquafit in the evening. I really want to focus on getting back to some sort of fitness.

We are hoping that eventually he will be able to eat on his own. Sam works on oral exercises every day. I no longer know what she's doing as he has a swallowing therapist who has added things in.
I am still tired. My burners on my propane stove have rusted through and I need replacements. I use those burners a lot, so I am really feeling the loss of them. I hope that we can get the parts quickly.
My house is a wreck. Need to get in the shower then tackle the kitchen.

Daughter phoned to say that John's stomach peg is blocked. She is taking him to E.R. but would like me to drive dad back north today instead of his taking the bus tomorrow. I don't really mind. It will be a nicer ride for hubby and we still get to spend the same amount of time together.

She has Celiac's very bad, so we will take her some Udis treats.

Kierae, the bread is made by a company called udi's and they have a whole gluten free product line which we ship to Ottawa ON from Denver, CO! It is sad to think that no one in Canada can bake, but what the hey! The bread is delicious and we will be trying their pizza crusts for lunch. I'll tell you what they are like.

Shirley - whats the brand name of the bread?

Resting today (well kinda - have to hit costco, walmart and do some kitchen cooking so I guess that isn't too much resting..lol). Had Aliegh overnight Saturday. We roadtripped down to my girlfriends. They had a gold/silver party where you bring any unwanted, broken jewelry or whatever to sell. The host gets 10% of the total paid out. Was interesting to watch one woman come in with all kinds of silver plates/bowls/etc. I brought a handfull of missing earring mates, a couple broken bracelets and necklaces. I walked away with just under $1000!!! The total paid out was like 3500. I am still in shock..lol. But hey I can pay off my IRS bill (just so yanno I can start undoubtedly paying them for this next filing) AND get some more tattoo ink time in on my sleeve. emoticon

Hubby came home yesterday. He will be taking the bus back up north Thursday, but until then he's mine! I am a much better person when we are together. I miss him so much, but right now the kids need him more.

I made a beef stew last night. Today was Greek salad for lunch and we'll have steak, baked potato and kale for dinner. We don't eat breakfast Sunday, because my mom wouldn't let us eat before church, and I would never let my kids eat Sunday either.

I found a gluten free bread in the frozen section of our grocery and I really like it. I still find that sandwiches are the easiest thing for me to take to work, and this bread tastes great and doesn't upset me. I only eat it when I am going to work, but it's a lifesaver. Does anyone else eat gluten free bread? The company also makes a pizza crust, so hubby and I will try that while he's home as well.

I've only been to Chicago once but it was an amazing place.

Illinois is the top pumpkin producing state in the U.S. so we love our pumpkins. LOL.

Wow... there are certainly some recipes using pumpkin that I never imagined! I liked the cream cheese dip and the olive tapanade. I also saw a cool decorating trick where you do deviled eggs and slice black olives to make a spider on top... Might be fun too!

I had baked fish and chips for dinner with green beans. Today I bought myself a fruit tray, 2 things of raspberries and a large bag of organic delicious apples.

Hubby is thinking of coming home from Sat to Thurs since the kids have reading week. The house is a wreck since I wasn't expecting him for another 6 weeks. Oh well, at least I'll cook right if he is home.

Tomorrow is aquafit, then hopefully a second coat of varathane for the picnic table, then work. I forgot to take anything out of the freezer.

I love jicama and have baked it like fries. I imagine it would make a better hashbrown than a fry but definitely a decent potato sub. I also like it just sliced, dipped in lime juice and sprinkled with a pepper/salt type seasoning.

Hi everyone!

I've got the morning off of work today. I'm working from 1--9 pm, instead; we've started taking career counselling clients at night. I was looking forward to doing some more painting of the fence, but the wind is nasty out there. So here I am!

There were some questions about breakfast. I've really enjoyed making zucchini hashbrowns. I know the recipe calls for eggs, but maybe they'd work with "flax eggs"? Has anyone tried it?

I subscribe to the South Beach Facebook Page. Today they had a recipe for jicama hashbrowns, no eggs required. I've never tried jicama. Have you?

I lifted weights and spent time on the elliptical and treadmill last night. I'm sore, too. Misery loves company.

I went to aquafit for the second time last night. I am stiff this morning, but less so than the first time I went. Hopefully in week, I'll be better and can do something at home in the alternate days.
Got called in to work again this afternoon, but hopefully that will be it for the week. I did take out pork chops last night, so will cook myself a proper meal tonight. I'm sure that will help immensely.

Good morning! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I did some canning yesterday with a girlfriend - asian pear butter. We have another batch to do tonight. Surfing for an alternative recipe to use the rest of the asian pears. She is using hers for Christmas presents. Mine will feed the mister since he likes to add jams/jellies to his morning oatmeal...and maybe a couple gifts. Can't believe it's time to ponder the holidays already. Crazy!

In the mood to make some soup except both my crockpot AND my stockpot are being used for canning. emoticon
