Zucchini Lasagna

Yes, another zucchini recipe! Luckily this one is a main dish. I heard someone mention doing this once, so I thought I’d give it a shot. I didn’t use a recipe, but just threw it together, so the measurements are kind of a guess. 1 1/2 lbs low-fat ground turkey or beef 32 oz sugar-free pasta sauce lg container low-fat ricotta cheese 1 very...

Wow, Flashback…

A friend of mine is getting married in a couple of months and is having her bridal shower tonight.  It really takes me back to when I was making plans for marriage! We’ve been married for 6 1/2 years…7 in February. My bridal shower was on the same day as my birthday, exactly a week before the wedding. It was just family but it...

Olympics Today!

The Olympics begin today in Beijing! I’m really looking forward to seeing some of the games. Gab and I watched some of the diving and gymnastic trials awhile back and it was truly amazing to see these athletes. The dedication and work they put into their sport is quite impressive. I love the stadium recently built. It’s built to look like a bird’s nest...

WW SF Zucchini Bread

I decided to take some snacks to the beach with us, so I made some healthy banana bread and this one. It’s a whole wheat, sugar free zucchini bread.  It went so fast, it was gone before I knew it! I’m planning on making more today, since we have so many zucchini in the garden.  The recipe makes 2 loaves, so I always freeze...

Toasted or Not?

As you know, I’m always looking to get new ideas for posts, and someone sent me a link to an article by msnbc. It’s about tanning. “Prior to the 20th century women were fanatical about avoiding exposure to the sun. Umbrellas and parasols went everywhere with any woman who could afford them. The French fashion designer Coco Chanel changed all that. Back in the...

Dog at the Kennel Story.

We decided not to take Cooper (aka Squeaky Chicken) to the beach with us, for numerous reasons. The main reason being that we simply did not have room in the car. We had so much baby stuff. So we found a place kinda nearby that looked and sounded good and took him there for the week. Then one day, Wednesday, I think, Paul got...

Babies & Nightmares

Reading on the message boards recently, someone asked if newborns have nightmares. I thought it was an interesting question. On one hand, they have working brains and gain experience and memories throughout the day. On the other, I don’t think they have much imagination. And if they’re in a solid, happy, safe and secure home, what would they know to fear? My first thought...

No Parents at the Beach

A couple weeks go (not sure of date) my mom got into a fight with a horse and lost. Somehow she got her leg hurt and, long story short, had to have surgery on Monday. The infection in the damaged part of her leg was deeper than the doctors thought, so they decided to go dig around and cut it out. She still hoped...
