Debby when people ask, I'm starting to actually say "primal" more, because it's a fad people have heard about without that stigma of low carb.
And did you say primal lets us have dairy? It's paleo that doesn't?

Carolyn you've done a real service today reminding us about our ice-walking helpers!

Yeah, I think that's right Judy. Primal does include some dairy... & wiggle room... 80/20 thing... for those who like a day off plan.

Judy, those Buena Vidas are good.. La Tiara are white corn and yellow corn..We like the white ones.

Oh, Debby, I'm sure you are in a winter wonderland up there..with those trees and mountains, etc.

Alex did fine at the vet..No infection so that is good..His scar looked great, but I wanted to make sure there was no infection going on and I would be fighting this with insulin.

Yes, Yak Traks are amazing..Sometimes I actually use them in public...Taking them off inside, of course.

I have 2 pairs of those ice footies. One is still in the packaging and the other one is in the garage......somewhere. I don't remember the last time I used them, but I should really get them out, considering our winter weather around here lately. They're forecasting snow tomorrow and -10 below zero by Monday morning!!! How many more days before summer??????

I was the queen of abusing the CAD diet. I would time dinner and a movie within my one hour so I could eat AND have my popcorn. I also like to have my cake and eat it too, in case you were wondering. Well, needless to say, I didn't stay on the CAD diet because "it just didn't work for me". Hahahaha.

Hi!

Chemo today and he did well!

I bought the Yak Traks for DD27 in Aspen and DH but I haven't bought any for myself.
After this winter I may have to!

MK are the days after a little worse? Or do we need more time to know how his body deals with this.
Oh I hope you and he can sail through this.
Some people do - some doses are not so tough - obviously I have NO idea so I'm blithering... but hopeful in my prayers.

Sandy we are kindred spirits. I totally abused that way of eating and now I do believe it was in a 1-hour window. I ate like a champ for that hour and like you, "it just didn't work for me," either. Bah ha ha ha ha!!

Hi,

So glad he did well on the chemo today, MKay..I think they do give their patients meds to help them feel better while doing it, don't they?

I can eat a lot of carbs in one hour..or even ten minutes.

Try on the Yak Traks..I needed a bigger size than I normally take in a shoe. They are the bestest..My dd slipped and hurt her knee at the UMKC campus and couldn't get up, so her friend called the Campus Police and they were all slipping and sliding..She does have Yak Traks..but didn't wear them that day.

Thanks Carolyn - i didn't think about sizing up!

And they do give them anti-nausea drugs.

Judy - sometimes the next days are worse - and I'd think the buildup in your system would make it worse too.

They did blood work and his white count is a little low.
He'll get a shot on Sunday for that.

Good morning..

Dh is going to get the washer/dryer at our friends' this a.m. Will probably deliver it to BA next Saturday.

Yes, I do think the build-up makes you feel differently than at first. But, praying that the chemo does its job!!

Feels like a soup day today. I use the crockpot for making soup..How about anyone else?

We are supposed to get a skiff of snow this afternoon..How about anyone else?

Here is a great and easy soup recipe..

Italian Sausage Soup..
This is easy..Don't have the carb count as it depends on how much you eat.
It's not perfect, but it has no bad carbs and it is delicious and filling.

Serves 4

1 small onion, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 orange pepper, chopped
3 Italian mild or hot sausages, cooked and sliced. (I did them in the oven)
2 cans of Hunt's diced tomatoes with garlic, oregano, etc.
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 can of water
1 zuke, sliced

In your soup pan, add some olive oil and saute the onion and peppers until
softish. Add the cans of tomatoes and the tomato sauce and water. Heat until warm and then add the sliced zuke and the sliced cooked sausage.
Cook for about 30 to 40 minutes until the flavors have melded and zuke is soft.

Serve in bowl with parmesan cheese sprinkled on it.

PS: I'm throwing all this in the crockpot after I saute the onions/peppers and cook the meat.

Carolyn thanks for the recipe.

Sounds really good and yes it does feel like a soup day.
I like making soup and having it surprise me later as a quick meal.
And I love my crock pot. It's an old one - might have been my grandmother's, so if it's on LOW, it is really really LOW and you can leave it all day without worrying it's going to dry out your food.

I think some of the newer crock pots have a low temperature that is too high for me.

OSU's loss last night was so hard.
It's hard to be an OSU fan, I must say, but I am loyal, even through disappointment.

Buffy's toffee is being lovingly nibbled by my DH. I've had one bite each day and no more. I left a little for my mother who also loves toffee. Skinny sister had a bite and swooned.

SS is having carb creep, I think. She gained 5 pounds when she & her DH went to Hawaii right before Christmas. She has never really put an eye or a true gauge to her number of carbs, so she's been flying blind for 18 months. She changed the way she ate, but didn't want to pay attention to the amount of anything - which is probably why a great number of people eat low carb in the first place.

But she now thinks she's eating correctly, maybe just a few bites of wrong things here and there and can't understand how she hasn't lost the weight.
I know...

Carolyn we're getting your same skiff of snow, possibly.
DH is outside taking wreaths off our windows and we'll take the lights off our azaleas before the next blast. We're really having a winter this year!

Happy New Year! Only took me three days to get here, lol.

Still making toffee, I keep getting that one last order

CAD is a very enjoyable way to LC.

20 lbs in 6 months is a lot MK, but, did you get to buy a bunch of new clothes

Have to agree how NYE has changed for us over the years! Used to be a BIG deal, new dress, party party. Even my kids don't do that these days!

Wow, the low temps some peeps are having, now that's wintry weather. It is chilly here but temps I enjoy.

Yes, Judy's posts are so fun and entertaining, love them and her

I'm ready to get back to the normal schedule and get organized, bit by bit!

Stay warm everyone

Good morning,
I enjoy everybody's posts.
We got up @ 7 am on a Saturday! We've had too much time off ! DH is working on renovating the insides of an Airstream trailer--in our yard... so he's at home, working a leisurely pace in his warm shop. Its his winter project for a regular client. And I must say, its giving his brain a good STRETCH! (everything in trailers is so much different).

Last night we were talking about the GMO stuff (with company). DH learned a lot of stuff he didn't like (helps to hear it from other people). He wants me to buy a flour mill & start making our own flour... baking bread, etc... so I'm going to check it out. I really should be protecting his health as well. Any of you have one? Know what kind is good?

Well, going to look for tax forms...
Have a good one!

Well that's why I was asking.

I think there is probably some non-gmo wheat out there. I've read of some "ancient" wheat, but I don't know how readily available it is. Or "ancient grains." Not sure.

Why do husbands prefer the advice of not wives?

because his wife is on an "extreme" WOE from what he sees!
I found a supplier, sent email to find out how they sell & ship it. Its organic, non GMO.
My neighbor just answered me on her grinder... she bought an attachment for the kitchen aid (which I have). Says it works well enough for their family... interesting. Its not very expensive either.

I bet this is going to be an emerging market.
Primal/paleo people who have denied themselves the current kind of wheat will go the extra mile to do the whole thing themselves.

Research so far... yes there's organic wheat.. in the states... pleasant hill grain out of Nebraska sells it. They also have links to the grain mills. Hard wheat is apparently what you need for flour & a dry grain mill... won't grind anything damp.
The kitchen aid attachment worries me, I'm pretty sure it would take forever & burn out the motor... It runs just over $100. The heavy-duty grinders are closer to $5-600. I've put out feelers to friends who own them, will see what they say.

Hope you all are staying warm in those frigid temps to the north of me!

Help! My microwave died yesterday. It was a Samsung countertop and I loved it, but pretty old so need recommendations on a new one. I have room for the bigger models and want 1200 watts. Tried to look online but just get more confused.

Prett, sunny day here with chilly winds.

Whatever kind I have replaced the cool vent-a-hood I wish we still had.
When it was time to get a new stove/oven, I wanted the kind that had a little oven on top for most baking, and a bigger oven on bottom for the big stuff or holidays.

So of course my kitchen couldn't take that style at the time.

But my microwave is also a convection oven!
I would sing its praises but it's so loud when it's on I can count the times on 3 fingers I've actually used it. The microwave part is normal loud. The convection oven part is super loud.
It's a GE Profile Microwave/Convection oven.

Buffy - I have a counter top microwave - what kind do you want?

We have 8" of snow on the ground and more coming!
And the wind! Yikes!

High of -9° tomorrow and low of -13°!

We're enjoying 23 degrees better than rain!
I joined Consumer's report (to look for grain mills)... which they don't cover... so I looked up large micro's for you. What's your email? I'll send you the right-ups. (maybe pm me on facebook with it)
