    Cindy, great news - and all that excitement keep you away from fattening foods!!

    Sewnso, how's it going?

    Since I'm on here right now - and it's getting late - I'll post our Taboo Tuesday. Because of some recent posts, it's a double taboo. First off, exchange your regular size dinner plate for one that's smaller. When you put your meal on the smaller plate - your visual image makes you feel as if you're actually eating more. Secondly, exchange your sugars this week for some local honey - see if those recipes posted earlier will help you personally in some way.
    So, smaller size plates and local honey. Keep healthy and lose weight.

    Cindy congratulations. It sounds like things are finally working out.
    I was hoping to to get some local honey from my BIL tonight. He has several hives that he inherited when my FIL died. The last few years my FIL was alive he wasn't the best mentally and somehow screwed the hives up bad. My BIL has been having a terrible time with them. He is getting very little honey. He said they had some disease and other problems. He thinks it is straightened out. If it is still a mess next year he said he might give it up.
    I forgot to go to JoAnns I also have a 20% off your entire purchase coupon that includes sale items. I am running low on all colors of thread. I have been trying to use up all the odd spools I have.
    All the talk of different vegetables sounds so yummy. I have decided to try some new things. I would like to try one new vegetable or vegetable recipe a week. I bought some okra today. I have thrown it in soup and had it fried in restaurants but I don't think I have ever cooked it. I will have to search for ideas on line. We have a store here called Jungle Jims that has all kinds of weird vegetables and fruits.
    Off to sew. My guild meeting is tomorrow night and I need to make a postcard.
    Healthy eating to all. Pat

    My favorite plate is a soft coral Fiesta salad plate - my only piece of Fiestaware, so I can use it often. I will check the Farmer's Market tomorrow for some local honey- what I have is natural raw honey, but I'm betting it's from downstate. I don't worry as I don't have many allergies, but for this week I will try it. Last week - fried snacks, I get a gold star, please and thank you. None here, though I did have a bag of Rice Chips in my hand yesterday.

    I will make it to JoAnn's Friday, but the sale will probably be over by then. I thought I needed more red dotted fabric, but I made a design change and will be okay. I'm not buying any more fabric for a donation quilt. I can always pick up a packages batt if nothing else that catches my fancy is on NOT on sale (for the 40% off coupon) though, currently, I am several batts ahead. Now that I have found one I like, I don't mind stockpiling a few in case the price goes up.

    Good news, Cindy. It sounds like is the job you wanted.

    I dont think I can go any smaller on my plate, I am already eating on a salad plate instead of a dinner plate for that reason. If I don't use a plate it is a small bowl.

    I always get the local honey, find I do better with it than other honey. I may have to get a second bottle to take to work with me, I like hot tea with honey and may have to take some cinnamon with me to add to my hot tea also.

    I am enjoying all the hints that are more natural than using medications to correct ailments over times.

    My DH has arthritis. He won't go to the doctor. He is a big baby. He has been popping Aleve like candy. I am trying to get him to try the honey. Or I have something called Bio Tools I have been using that is working great for me. He is going to destroy his liver and stomach with the Aleve.
    Anyone have a good way to make okra?Also I need to eat more greens ( kale etc). I have no idea how to cook them. My DH brought home a bunch of green beans yesterday. I guess I am canning more green beans. I gave some to my mom to share with my sisters.

    The doctor called today. I did have the tainted injection (times 2). I didn't talk to her, but she left a very long message. She said the CDC site has more info, but to go the ER, my doctor or the pain clinic the minute I don't feel well. A stiff neck is one of the early symptoms. Guess what I have today - and yes, before I read that. A stiff neck. Of course, I've had arthritis in my neck for at least 48 years, so this isn't my first stiff neck. The CDC site says the incubation period is more than the 30 days I had previously heard. +2 months. Grrr.

    Busy, busy day. Here's a funny mind picture for you. Today is my ex-husband's b'day, so I baked him an apple pie. While I had the mess made, I made one for my 'friend', too. It was interesting delivering them back to back. My children say if I wrote my life story, I couldn't sell it because no one would believe it.

    I wanted to get some more weeks out of the gardens today, but a cold wind was whistling through. We were rained on for our walk. Lily doesn't like it, but Moira doesn't care.

    The only thing I've done with okra is throw it a soup. What are Bio Tools?

    K and I had dinner at Ruby Tuesday. They have gone to very small salad plates. I didn't have salad, but my daughter did. I ate my cinnamon and honey with a spoon tonight.

    irish. i have started grilling my cut up okra on the george forman with a little salt and pepper. gets it a little brown, but without the flour and oil to coat or cook it. i also boil it whole, in just enough water to cover it, until just tender. sort of a little more than el'dente. WW considered it a 'free' veg years ago. not sure about the up to date food list. and i have to say, my husband cringes as i eat it. but he is a true michiganer. my dad was military, so we lived all over, but quite a few years in the south.
    off to the dr. for strep throat. courtesy of the grandson.

    Bio tools is an herbal supplement a friend got me started on. It is sold by Advocare. It is working well for me. I also like their shakes for breakfast. They are an easy fast breakfast. They are high in protein and low in carbs. I have been making one and drinking it on the way to work. I usually eat breakfast at about 7:30 AM and don't get my lunch until 1:00PM. I rarely have a chance for a morning snack and am surprised I don't get hungry before lunch. I am hooked on the Advocare products. I love them all. I can get 30% off if you are interested.
    I made chicken cacciatore for dinner with green beans and brown rice. It was delicious. Lots of vegetables in it. I am trying to get more vegetables in. I think we are having vegetable soup tomorrow. I will find something to do with my okra besides put it in my soup.
    Irish I hope the stiff neck is from arthritis not from the shots. Will be praying for you. If it gets worse get to the ER before it progresses. You need to catch it early.
