    Just an update.

    Hoping for the best for you both. This sucks.

    We decorate wreaths to sell along with our cut your own Christmas trees and this year I taught myself how to make bows. The love seat is piled high with loads of bows.
  3. This little guy has no name yet. 2 day old colt by SF Mahogany Bay x SF Smokes Refelction. Mom and Dad have the same dam.

    Made this today, really happy with it.
  5. Baby number two arrived late this afternoon another bay filly for SF Mahogany Bay! Sorry for the bad picture, I'll get better ones later.
  6. First foal of the year and it's a filly!!!! Very pleased, she is really nice. Her sire is SF Mahogany Bay. The second mare is the dam of the filly's dam and in foal to the same stallion. She has been testing ready for three days and running us ragged. The two of them just have fits when we separate them and they seem to have things worked out between them.

    I have been teaching myself Kumihimo weaving and here are some samples. Now, I am on to paracord, going to make a monkey's fist key ring. Also learning knotting. It helps in keeping me busy, I broke my fibula in September and it isn't healed so I am pretty much stuck on my La Z Boy when I am not at work. Waiting for a bone stimulator to arrive, just got insurance approval. If that doesn't work, surgery. This complication only happens to 5%, and the stim has an 80% success rate so I am hoping like crazy that it works!!!!!

    Crock pots???

    What Jill said. Get the one with the clamping lid. We borrowed one and haven't returned yet..... Great for soups, in this case our friend had made soup for my SIL's wake, clamped it and it traveled with no leaks. We crock at shows all the time, Had a tiny dip one to do the old fashioned oats for breakfast but do better just pouring boiling water in a thermos overnight and voila, world's best oatmeal. Once you have one, you will wonder why you never owned one!

    Try Google?
  10. A good website for great low cal and tasty foods is http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot.com/ They are usually easy to make, although those of you with normal sized stomachs would have to increase the serving sizes.
  11. I can't believe I forgot this one, a major favorite and low cal/carb too!! Take low carb tortillas, brush a bit of olive oil, add a bit of pizza sauce and top as you wish. I use turkey pepperoni, low fat cheese, mushrooms. Bake at 450 for 8 - 10 minutes and you have mini pizzas. If you like the 'crust' crispy, pre-bake them for a few minutes before putting on the toppings. This way everyone gets what they want on them. One 8" pizza is good for 4 lunches for me with a bit of non fat cottage cheese, or one meal for my roomies who have normal sized stomachs.
  12. How about Beer Butt chicken? This is great stuff!!! Get a whole roaster chicken and canned beer. Drink 1/2 of the beer or pour 1/2 down the drain like I do since I hate beer. You can also use Coke, Root Beer, Pepsi as well I hear. Season the bird inside and out with salt and pepper or the McCormick grilling seasonings and seat the bird on the can carefully. Cans are weak these days and collapse easily so you do have to be a bit careful. Preheat the oven to 350 and bake the impaled bird in the seated position until done. You will need a thermometer for that part, but I think it is an hour to an hour and a half. You will have the most tender, juicy tasty chicken ever. Be careful taking the bird off the can, it is tricky but worth it. I usually bake it on the bottom of a broiling pan to catch all the 'juices' and in case the bird falls over. To be sure of the timing and temps and to get more seasoning ideas, just google beer butt chicken and you will find all kinds of ideas.
  13. Heat some olive oil in a skillet (only a tablespoon or so), take boneless skinless chicken breasts, put them between two pieces of plastic wrap and beat the crap out of them until thin. Great after a bad day at work. You can use a skillet, or meat mallet. Season as you like, I love using the McCormick grilling seasonings, and cook in the hot oil. They are awesome! For burgers, mix lipton onion soup mix with the burger,let it sit a while to get flavor (mix in the morning and refrigerate for the evening), make your patties and cook on the grill. Dunkel Burgers (named for neighbors I grew up with, the Dunkels) take two burger patties, put a slice of onion and choice of cheese (Mom loved bleu, not me!) put the patties together and wrap the burgers in bacon so that the entire burger is covered in bacon. Use toothpicks to hold the bacon on, my dad used a different number for each person's burger so he would know which had which filling. Cook on the grill. Let me tell you, these are the BEST tasting burgers I have ever had. You can't eat them in the bun, can't get your mouth around them. Since my weight loss surgery, one Dunkel burger lasts me for 4 meals now!

    Fresh strawberries and Greek yogurt

    Ashley, I felt the same way until I added the sweetener to it. Now, I love it as long as it is doctored up. I also love the Chobani greek yogurts, vanilla is my favorite flavor with blueberry a very close second.

    Fresh strawberries and Greek yogurt

    My favorite is Fage 0% with splenda and cinamon added. Really tasty. Also, the sugar free syrups from Davinci are great mixed with the yogurt.
