We had homemade spaghetti and garlic bread.-nm
lasagna, salad, and garlic bread

Roasted parmesian garlic sauce over grilled chicken served on bed of vermicelli, green salad
with all the fixins including home-made croutons with garlic and homestyle ranch dressing with sweet tea! YUM!
Homemade chicken and dumplings with dressing, potato salad or macaroni salad, mashed potatoes, corn,
not sure if the same, but I was taking olive leaf extract (a good brand) and felt great...

I wonder if that would be of the same benefit...just off for a few months because of money reasons!  any health food store carries it, but, of course, you want a good one. 

also, evening oil of primrose is great, still taking that because there was a sale on it...love it.

Gizzards in spicy tomato sauce on rice. nm
Pasta salad
I am making this as we speak.

1lb box rotini pasta
add 1 bag frozen vegetables at the end of cooking time. Your choice. I use California mix, broccli, cauliflower, carrots.

Drain and cool.

When cool add 1 bottle ranch dressing, or pepper ranch, or Italian dressing. Any kind of dressing will do.

Add 1 can sliced olives. Sometimes I add artichoke hearts chopped up, sometimes some pepperoni chopped.

Mix well and chill well. Just before serving I mix in about a 1/4 cup grated cheese.

Some jar sauce is as good as homemade...
I make my own sauce usually, but when I'm not in the mood there are some that surprisingly are just as good as homemade. They are the more expensive ones, Rao's, Victoria, Patsy's, Vincent's. Jar sauce has come a long way! But the less expensive like Prego, Ragu, and even Classico etc., I find are just too sweet. Easy recipe..A couple of jars of Victoria or other better-brand Fra Diavolo sauce. Cook on stove in medium pot on medium heat until hot but not boiling. Throw in a bunch of medium or large size RAW peeled shrimp with tails removed! (I often use the raw frozen in the bag - thawed) and continue cooking/stirring until shrimp turns orange and appears done. Spoon over pasta and top with S&P if you like and lots of grated romano/parmesan cheese. Squisito!
Creamy chicken and veggies with pasta and homemade biscuits...

Boycott Canadian Seafood
Due to the horrible seal hunt the HSUS is asking that we boycott Canadian seafood as a way of protesting the hunt.  The hunters get the majority of their income from their jobs as fishermen so boycotting their products will hurt them in turn for them hurting the baby seals.  Thanks.
I'd love to help - how do we know if the seafood is Canadian or not though?
Because coding isn't as cut and dried as transcription is. Coders have to research a patient'

A doctor may say the patient has hypertension as a diagnosis, but the reality is there are a bunch of different codes for hypertension.  There is no such thing in coding as plain old hypertension.

Same with certain procedures.  There is a code for this procedure and a code for that procedure.  BUT if you do this procedure WITH that procedure, then there is a whole nother code for that.

In order to have coding fully automated you would have to have software that could scan a patient's eletronic medical record record and then decide which diagnosis of hypertension best meets this patient's history and then assign the correct code.  Plus with the enormous fines for medicare fraud and upcoding, no hospital is going to trust a computer to coding.  Coders will probably end up editing codes same as we edit transcription from VR.  Our jobs don't just disappear, they evolve.

The Mortgage-Lifter Tomato

A few years ago, I heard the story behind this great garden vegetable and did order some mortgage-lifter seeds from a catalog.

In the 1960s, a gentleman developed/raised mortgage-lifter tomatoes, selling them off for $1.00 each and sold enough to pay off his $6,000 mortgage.  Thus, he named them mortgage-lifters.

Granted, it's too late in the year to start this enterprise now, but selling seedlings to gardeners is one way to earn some extra money. 

I live in a rural area and do plant a small vegetable garden every year.  I start tomatoes from seeds, and usually end up with more plants than I need.  Most people I know do purchase seedlings; they don't start out with seeds.  My son and I have decided that we will sell seedlings (more than just tomatoes) next spring at a weekly yard sale in our front yard.

Mortgage-Lifter story is here:



olive oil
I'm a big fan of olive oil but at 14 grams of fat per tablespoon, 4 tablespoons per 1/4 cup, that would be 64 grams of fat per day! That's a lot of fat even if its a healthy fat. How will that affect you in the long run.
olive oil
I use it in baking. I've found in muffins, cakes, cornbread, etc., if I use olive oil instead of regular oil or shortening I can use half of the amount called for and whatever I'm baking is always light and fluffy. I love it.
Thank you, Olive! :o)
I'm thankful for the review, as I have seen those advertise and there is one on craigslist. I should start saving up now for one I guess.
Tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwich.
Nothing grilled, it gives me a bellyache,  just plain toast and cheese stuck together   My son will have his favorite, fried liver and onions, my daughter will have cinnamon oatmeal, husband will have half a grapefruit, oatmeal, 2 eggs, and toast.  I run a short order house in the morning, but at least everyone eats something good for them before they leave the house, so I don't mind at all.   And I won't be surprised if a few neighborhood kids stop in for my soup and sandwich or the oatmeal.  The only rule is that they have to put their own dishes in the dishwasher, not leave them for me to clean up. 
Low grade olive oil is the best.
With a Double Whopper on the side...hold the tomato and lettuce!
Easy Pasta
1 pound of tricolor pasta
ranch or italian dressing
1/2 bottle of McCormick salad supreme
1 small can of black olives, chopped
add whatever else you like-
- shredded cheese
- cherry tomatoes
- broccoli

You can double/triple/etc.
wonder if olive oil and a smatter of vinegar would

CMs are olive, brown or black - not in NC, but in SC - sm
look it up on Google and you will get some sites which show pictures. Maybe you can identify it that way.
on a diet...hamburger plain, unsweetened applesauce, tomato juice...yum NOT!
but it's working....yippee!  So much for the tastebuds!
oops, you said pasta sorry not awake yet
I've been using olive oil daily for the last 5 years
and my weight is stable and normal.

However, I don't use NEARLY a 1/4 cup! just a little on my salad or for cooking.
I realize I may regret extending the olive branch but

to tell you the truth, I have always rooted for the underdogs. 

My very best friend in the world once tied my hair in knots (before we were friends,) added some gum and dirt to the mix too.  This was back when I was in the 3rd grade. Her parents made her come and apologize and we have been very thick ever since. 

She didn't have many friends either.  She was kind of a bully and the kids were all basically scared of her.  I am proud to say that I could rely on her in a pinch going on 25 years now. 

On the advice of one of the posters, I will make sure that the pup is in the clear with animal control and the local police just to be safe.  I have a friend who volunteers at the local animal shelter where we adopted our puppy.  He teaches obedience classes for the dogs and caregiving for the owners.  All of this he does for free.  

Perhaps if all goes well with the neighbors, I will suggest to the dad that he and his daughter accompany us to some of these classes when we go.  Maybe she can learn to love the animals and they can help heal her a little too.

There I go again, rootin for the underdog. 



Yeah! The judges RAVED about that pasta dish!

Bowtie pasta - Zesty Italian dressing,
small bits of sharp cheese, raw broccoli cut up, and tomotoes cut up in tiny squares! So easy and delicious.

Sometimes, I throw a little bit of pepperoni in there for spice.
Any kind of pasta, you can add sliced black olives,
diced celery, onion, etc., then pour Cheese Fantastico salad dressing all over and mix together well.  Chill until ready to serve.  This is a big HIT with my family.
Blue on the walls, textured olive green carpet,

hydrangea sculptured border, olive green curtains I designed and made, 2 office chairs to give the ol' back a break, desk placed just so in order to be able to look out 2 different windows, 1-3 cats who come and stay as they please, and 1 little dog who never leaves the office unless I do.  There are also the necessary things like a bookcase, printer, backup computer, nik-nacks and paddy wacks.
