We are now resuming the continuing program that was momentarily sidelined. My readers, friends and I are happily going on with our lives.
And I got a humongous package delivered to me from my Canadian buddy, Helga, full of clothes, perty knick-knacks, baseball caps, and gifts for Beau AND Joe.
The Cpap has proven effective. It was needed, and I love it. My apologies to the DOKTOR who was accidentally correct. Hey, even the sun shines on a dog's butt occasionally, and occasionally a Doktor gets it right. First time for everything.
I have energy again. Gaaa-LORY hallelujah!
I'm starting to really love this area now. After realizing most fruitcakes live elsewhere, (and our particular tiny town is fairly sane), we had proof positive in the following photo over our house.
It started in the front yard and ended in the back.
JUST our house.
At least that's what Joe said and he's right.
My insulin intake has dropped from 80 units a day to 28, with a ten pound weight loss thrown in for good measure. Ten to go and I'll be at my old fighting weight, but that's just a sideline benefit. I FEEL GOOD for the first time in about 5 years.
Of course, being paranoid, I figure there will be a kick-my-ass-to-the-ground reaction, but until there is, I FEEL GOOD.
So I'm going to show you what I felt like doing this morning.
Believe it or not, but that is a FOUR EGG omelet overpowering my 14 inch teflon skillet.
With mozzarella and sharp cheddar oozing out of the center.
The "trick" is to separate four eggs and whip the whites until they triple in size and stiff peaks form. Fold in the yolks and poor into a well buttered pan on medium heat and cover. It's HUGE!!
When it's almost done, put cheese on top and slap it into the oven to melt the cheese.
Next up? I've already finished cooking our evening meal and it's only 11 am!!!
Chicken and dressing.
AND! Can you take one more thing?
Four sticks of butter at room temperature: $3.45.
1 cup of buttermilk
1 cup of canola oil
1 teaspoon salt.
At $3.75 per tub at the grocery store, this is two for the price of one.
And it's ONLY butter, buttermilk, and canola oil.
NO artificial ingredients.
Plus, add cinnamon and sugar and you have restaurant style flavored butter.
Now: I have ironing to do, then I've gotta boogie to the beat.
