Chews, great job at the Tyson store, those are some amazing deals you got. I know I'm a bit late joining the conversation on this one, it happened yesterday.

Lucky, I am so very happy that most of the baby calves made it. How is the snow situation today? Hope everything is almost back to normal.

Linda, how are you girl! So nice to hear from you! That business what the bank is so frustrating I don't think anyone ever has a smooth experience when they try to deal with the bank in escrow in signing papers and everybody doing their job correctly. I truly hope everything works itself out very very soon.

Wow, Chewie! I am so happy for you that your energy levels have gone up any get to do so much and you don't even need any naps. This is great news! How are things going with fitting and smaller and smaller clothes? You know you will have to post pictures soon we're all looking forward to seeing the smaller and smaller you.

My knees and my hand is killing me the last 2 days...boy I think I have a case of fatitis and olditis all in one.. but I can't walk not until the knee thing goes away...

Well I am going to search for another salad recipe before I go to the market...
Melindochka, I think all teenagers are lazy. Mine is for sure. I think we have them spoiled by doing everything for them. My students are 10 years old and they come from other countries and the amount of hard work they have had to do, like a tiny little thing carrying 2 gallons of water over 2 miles so they have drinking water just amazes me. I think my son has led a very lazy and privileged life but I don't think he appreciates it he has nothing else to compare it to. So I don't think we should be too mad at them, we took too good of a care of them.

I am so sorry to hear about your knees, that really sucks! Have you tried massaging the muscles around your knees? I think tight muscles with trigger points involved in moving the area around the knees can cause some knee pain, not just worn out cartilage. Do you wear knee braces? I really wish I knew something that would help with your knee pain..... Don't want our super sexy California lady to be suffering.

Hoping to go to the beach today or tomorrow and just sit and enjoy the sunshine and the ocean view. Haven't been in a while and I miss the tranquility of it..Supposed to be in the low 70's...so, we should take advantage of it..

Slowly coming out of the doldrums from the flu thing...but, I can tell I need a change of scene and some people watching and a few kisses which I have been missing..
Lynn, I cannot believe your children are in their 40s! I hate flying to, mostly due to the tiny seats and being so crammed on the plane.

Glad you are feeling better and recovering from the flu.

Had a great time last night. I was the designated drinker and I took my job seriously. That cherry vodka is very dangerous.

Now to go catch up. Y'all were chatty while I was away.
Ha ha ha, the phrase man camp sounds funny! I agree on the bottles of Lysol you really need to keep it clean when he have so many messy man living together.

I am so very happy that you had a great time last night and that you took your drinking duties so seriously. Never had cherry vodka but it's on my list to try.

Mon 2/11.....363.8.. That's when I hit a little depression of what I gained...so I went on a diet LOL...it's not funny

Sat 2/16.....349.8

Sat 2/23.....342.4

I probably would have been into the next decade but the last two days.. I have been mowing too much food in...however on Thurs I was 341.4...so the bright side it was just a one pound gain.. instead of what it usually is like 6 pounds...bleck what I do to myself is ridicolous.....
Wow Melinda! The good news is that when you put your mind to it and stick to your plan, you lose weight incredibly fast. Keep up the good work, girly.

So I'm back from the store. $147 dollars later! Gulp. I bought a lot of cheeses, misc. dairy products and veggies. Lots and lots of veggies! I got some new stuff (for me) to try out: eggplant and spaghetti squash. Only meat I got was a small ham and some pork chops. Does anyone else feel sort of smug and superior when your cart is filled with nothing but healthy LC foods and you look around and see all the crap in other people's carts? I do. Tee Hee. I would never say anything or give away my thoughts with rude body language. I'm just saying that the thought flits thru my head: my stuff is better than your stuff. LOL.

We are starting after we sleep and wake up...which will be something in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

Oh, and about my shopping and not buying hardly any meat...I still have a ton of meat in my freezer.

Now I just have to organize my fridge and make room for all these veggies. I swear I need a 2nd fridge. Veggies are big and bulky and take up so much room. On the bright side I won't be taking up space with several gallons of milk and juice that DH used to drink.

I can totally understand this Melinda. There have been so many times I was good on low carb for like, a week, and didn't lose a thing or even gain a pound or two. Then my rationalizing brain says "I might as well have eaten what I wanted this week!" We just have to stick with it. I know easier said than done.

I am purging the fridge of the carby foods. Can you believe I'm sad about tossing out canned biscuits? They aren't even that good!

Here's what you are going to need:
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup of celery, sliced
2 cans (14.5 ounce each) of stewed tomatoes
1 can (15 ounce) of tomato sauce
2 envelopes of Lipton Onion Soup mix
1/2 tablespoon sugar
16 ounces of frozen vegetables (I use peas, carrots, corn and green beans)
6 ounces (about 1 cup uncooked) elbow macaroni
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
4 cups water

Here's what you need to do:

In a large heavy bottom dutch oven over medium heat, brown the ground beef.

Add the two envelopes of onion soup mix.

Mix well.

Add the celery and the water.

Add the stewed tomatoes and tomato sauce.

Add the sugar, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir.

Add the frozen mixed vegetables. No need to thaw. They'll cook right in the soup.

Mix well.

Cover and bring to a boil.

Add the pasta.

Cook until the pasta is tender but not mushy. You'll need to stir frequently, scraping the bottom of the pot so that the pastas doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.

All that's left now is to enjoy this easy version of vegetable beef soup!

**Here's a tip. If you have leftover cooked vegetables from you meals, keep a large freezer bag in the freezer and just keep throwing your leftover vegetables in there until you have enough for soup!
i also cut up an onion and put it in it and used quite a bit of pepper and worchestershire

Thanks Deb! I wonder how it would be if I left out the pasta? Then it would be moderately low carb.

Most of us were out shoveling but not them. Then the wife left to go to the store and got stuck trying to get back into the cul-de-sac. The new neighbors across the street from them went to help dig her out. I am sorry to say this, but, I told dh that we were not going to go help her (at this point we had been shoveling the street to make clear paths for cars) as her husband and son and his girlfriend were all inside their house and by golly they could come out and clear a path for her. We had been shoveling for 3 hours at this point! She tried again and got right up to three feet from her driveway and got stuck again. After finally shoveling with the neighbors, she went inside her house.

About 30 minutes later her husband and son and his girlfriend came out to shovel. Now, my neighbor on the right saw their snowblower in their garage and asked them why they weren't using it. The husband said it wouldn't work so my neighbor who is very mechanically inclined looked at it, drained the old gasoline, cleaned the carburetor and got it working. They used the snowblower on their driveway and then went back inside!!!!!! Meanwhile my dh and my good Samaritan neighbor where using his smaller snowblower and shovels to keep trying to clear the street. What is up with some people? Even if they didn't want to do the work, couldn't they have offered to let another neighbor use the now repaired snow blower? Is it bad of me to think such thoughts? Even my (normally self centered, self absorbed teen age) son and his friends ended up helping a few drivers shovel out when they were out and about.

Anyhow, I have some sore muscles from all the shoveling. Definitely proving how old and out of shape I am. but
Wow, KC, that was quite the workout you got! Those neighbors to the left of your sound like not very nice people they wouldn't even help their own mother when she got stuck in the snow. And then after someone cleaned out and fix their snowblower, they wouldn't let anybody else to use it. They should've left this woman walked out of her car and walked through the snow to her house because it seems like she was not very grateful, either.

So, you're still snowed in, I can believe you are out and about driving in the snow and taking the kids to all of their activities.

When there is snow and ice here I always stay home, I'm super scared of driving out on the highways.
