Good Morning Foodies! I know we are all trying to get back on the straight and narrow, when it comes to eating normal again! So tough to do! There is going to always be a piece of pie, a hidden batch of pralines and the relentless fruit cake, lurking in the corner somewhere! Ah yes, but I know where they are hiding. They are best buddies with that word—CALORIES! …You know in reality, CALORIES, are little creatures that live in your closet and when you are sleeping, they sew your clothes a little tighter every night! In my kitchen, I keep my most favorite dietary prayer, “LORD, IF YOU CAN’T MAKE ME SKINNY, PLEASE MAKE MY FRIENDS FATTER THAN ME!” Now doesn’t that make you feel better! Today’s gadget, from my daughter, is called a SALAD CHOPPER AND BOWL! I have not actually used it yet but can see great potential with this item. If it doesn’t work out, I think you can use the chopper to do lawn edging in your yard! Seriously, if anyone is building an ARK, I WOULD LIKE TO BOOK PASSAGE. Have a great weekend! Back to normal postings next Monday, but unfortunately, the rain will still be here! Be safe out there!
