Morning everyone!
Slept late, little Bobby's first BB game wore me out, joking. He is just learning and was pretty confused by it all. 5 year olds playing were so cute.

Then on to DDs house for belated cake and ice cream for Ava's 4th birthday.

Oldest DD trying to avoid a hysterectomy if possible, they are trying an IUD, if this doesn't work, then hysterectomy will be done.

Might be a movie day, hearing Lone Survivor very good, I have a list.

Beautiful day out!

Hi all,
What a beautiful weekend we've had!! What a difference a week makes. I'll take more of this anytime.

I had the full blown hysterectomy mainly b/c I avoided the Drs. recommendations. I truly think if I'd had it the year before I could've had it the other way. But my fibroids grew too big and it was a long recovery. I had a surprise sneeze attack a couple weeks after the surgery and it really set me back aa while in my recovery. That's something I'd never want to go through again!!! Ugh.

I can't wait until you all watch DA tonight!!!

Carolyn, we were in Manhattan this weekend. We ate at Cox Brothers BBQ, Bobby T's and El Tapatio. All were pretty good. But not very low carb. Cox would be the best in that category, I guess.
Maybe Brett will meet his future bride in Europe. It might just run in the family! Wouldn't that be cool???

Ah Sandy, sneezing is dangerous! I would imagine everyone recovers at their own rate. Sounds very unpleasant. My SIL who's only 50 had a complete hysterectomy plus some work on her plumbing... she was down for the count for 3 months.

Hi Buffy You're a good grandma... That would do me in, for sure.

I too had the full hysterectomy before I was 45! I probably would find another way if I did it today!

Yes that is young, MK.

Oh, Downton Abbey....
I confess I cheated and read a review of several episodes of season 4 on the Guardian.
Oh this is shocking and sad.

Hi ladies..

I can't remember when I had my hysterectomy..LOL..Guessing at 10 years ago..Gosh, I never thought of sneezing really affecting your "surgery", but it takes a lot of your body..


I can't read "ahead" on DA..Last night was so sad..

We do like Cox Barbecue..We also like the steak house next to Dillons west of town in the strip mall. The Little Apple Brewery and they have a great steak salad. There is also a First Watch in Manhattan, too..

Oh, little boys playing BB or baseball is so cute..They play like I would.

Gotta get hopping, check in later.

We have First Watches here in Tulsa, too! I really like that place.

Carolyn the 29th is a Wednesday morning?
I don't think I could do that because of work, I'm sorry to say.
Sorry for myself, of course.

On the sneezing....I didn't have my trusty pillow to hold against my tummy and couldn't control the sneezes and the Dr thought I might've ripped a stitch or two loose. After checking with an internal sonogram, he decided I hadn't but I felt like I was starting at ground zero in my recovery after that little episode. I can remember the exact date of my surgery! July 2, 2002. Ugh!! A day in infamy, lol. Ok, way TMI, I'm sure, but just wanted to explain how the sneeze was related, lol.

There's a place in MH called Early Edition too that looks and feels and tastes just like a First Watch too. I really like First Watch.

Wasn't DA sad?

Hi,

I pmed you, Judy about the 29th being a Saturday of the retreat..

Yes, DA was very sad..

I was wondering how Early Edition was, Sandy. I don't think we went there, but I know
exactly where it was. We usually ate at The Village Inn..

Oh, yes, everyone needs pillows after surgery so cats/dogs won't hop up on the stitches..Owie, Sandy..No fun.

I did make some pasta yesterday using the Kitchen Aid recipe on the Recipe Thread. It is pretty good..I don't have a KA, so I used my hand crank and it worked great. I do
think you could make noodles out of that recipe, too just by using a rolling pin and a pizza cutter.

Is that low carb pasta that you made Carolyn? I've never tried real pasta and all the lc imitations I've tried have been less than satisfactory to me. That's why I stick with Dreamfields or Fiber Gourmet when I just have to have it.

Yes, it was LC pasta and it was pretty good. No funky taste and a good texture. Did you guys see the recipe?? I do think you could also use a rolling pin and then slice it up like homemade noodles, too.

Dh and I saw Saving Mr. Banks. It was such a great story. Makes you want to see Mary Poppins again.

That's one of the movies I want to see, Carolyn. Glad to know I'll probably like it.

But I only checked here to see Buffy's long post.

Is it this?

Lasagna “Noodles”

8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
12 large eggs
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 tsp sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup shredded full-fat mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Asiago or aged cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously butter two 13" x 9" nonstick baking pans. (If you don't have nonstick pans, line yours with parchment paper and then butter the paper.)

Place the cream cheese in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the cream and salt and pepper to taste. Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared pans. Sprinkle evenly with the mozzarella and Asiago or cheddar.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until set. Remove from the oven. Invert each egg sheet onto a separate baking sheet. Let cool on wire racks. Cover and refrigerate.

Makes 2 large egg sheets, enough for one lasagna.

Note: The egg sheets can be made a day in advance.

MK I bet there's some mixup, some sort of mistake with your thinking you have a 30-year-old. It simply cannot be!

And the rest of your day sounds so.... NORMAL!
How nice!

Oh how nice for you. I breezed through menopause. Thanks to my BF. She went to a Homeopathic Dr for it. Since it worked so well for her, she shared the plan & meds with me. We both went through the whole thing in one year, relatively 'normal' Unlike my 2 sisters who've been suffering hot flashes for a decade.

How's your DD with turning 30? I remember that being somewhat 'traumatic' for a few of my friends when they did.

Poor Buffy, that's so maddening when a post evaporates!

My DD turned 45 yesterday!! That's hard for me to wrap my head around sometimes!

My menopause was much easier than my hyst. I've been on bio-identical hormone therapy ever since. Debby, I'm curious what your treatment was? Can you share more about that?

We're getting a new furnace today. Oh joy.....just hard to get excited about spending that much $$ on something right now after the holidays, but it's needed so there you go. Ugh. I can still gripe about it, right? So I have to stay home all day! That might give me a chance to do something around here for a change, lol.

Hi ladies.

Let me find that recipe for you, Sandy..New furnace!! Well, at least it is not really cold when they put it in. You might see a nice savings in your monthly bill, too.

Yes, I'm on BHT with Sandy/Cindy. All three of my doctors think it is great stuff!!

Judy, that is another recipe which looks amazing..But I do like using sliced chicken
meat from the deli for my lasagne noodles..It is very good and easy.

Honestly, you all will LOVE Saving Mr. Banks. It is such an interestingly sad/happy movie. True story, too, which makes it more wonderful. One of the characters is
the man who is in The Paradise..

This morning is exercising, knitting lesson for a little friend of mine, and babysitting at the church/dental appointment and Bible Study in the afternoon..Akkkk...Luckily, Alex won't need his "shot" until 3 and I will be home by then.

Here is that recipe link..Pasta Dough for KitchenAid Pasta Press

My hand crank recipe is the middle of the second page.. I don't have a KA, so it is the old fashioned way for this gal.

Oh my!
That is just incredible!

I had good luck with Peggy's dumplings the first time I tried them.
Then several months later I guess I lost my mojo and they fell apart.

I am definitely willing to try again for real lc pasta!! Thanks Carolyn.

Can I have a note to my work people so they can understand I need to talk to my friends and look at recipes before working? Thanks.

Woohoo! Happy birthday to your DD Is she the oldest?
That's great that you came through meno easy Sandy. I will see if I can dig up what I took, after work (got it somewhere).
Oh boy... a new furnace. Hope it doesn't set you back too far & hopefully it will be more 'efficient'

My DS came through surgery just fine & was home last night! That's so fast, for such a serious surgery. She said so far - so good.

Have a great day everyone!

Hi,
Quick hello, the relatives are coming today.

Lol at Judy, she always makes me laugh.

Got you all beat, my oldest DD is 48

Not sure how long BIL and wife will be here, I always hate not knowing and you can't come out and ask

Fell asleep before I could get DA watched so no spoilers please.

BBL when I can

Yes, Debby, DD is the oldest. DS is 28 months younger.


For Judy:
Please excuse Judy from any and all professional duties at work until she fulfills her daily LCF's required reading.
Thank you!

Buffy, I just can't get excited about having house guests anymore. Nor do I want to be one. I'd rather stay in a hotel and just get together with the people over dinner or shopping or sightseeing, etc.

Carolyn, which pasta maker do you have? I'm very intrigued by that pasta recipe. I sure wish we all lived close enough to each other to let each other taste our recipes. It sure would save a lot of trial and error, wouldn't it?

Hi ladies.

I have an Italian brand Atalia or something like that. You wasn't a nice sturdy one that clamps on the table. Yes, too bad KC is so far away. If I were you I would just make it and use a rolling pin and pizza cutter to slice the noodles and see if you like the taste and texture.

Dear Judy's employers: Judy needs to reconnect with her internet friends on a daily basis in order for her to work more efficiently. Amen

Debby, glad ds did fine with surgery.. Tell her to take it easy, easy..and not sneeze or lift anything..

Buffy, yes, it is hard to know how long your company is going to stay..Can't ask unless you are very creative in doing so. And you do win the prize for the oldest kiddo..I think Mary Kay has the youngest one..
