  1. Bex, we do have a freezer, it was new after we moved here. Since we eat all the vegetables we freeze there is a constant rotation in the freezer, food doesn’t stay there for long, it fills, it is emptied, it fills, it is emptied, and so it goes.
    Well, I don’t like hot foods either. But I fell in love with Cowboy Candy. I can’t explain it, it is just so tasty. I feel for you re the food thing, so difficult. You seem to be able to explore and discover some very tasty ways around your challenges though, those sweet potatoes sound amazing!

    The best story for the things we gave away was when DH chose to let go of his stein collection. This was before we started to put everything out on the curb. He posted on a neighborhood group on Facebook and someone said he’d like the collection. When the man picked up the box at the driveway he told DH how he was supposed to inherit steins his father had collected but when he went to the house after his father died the steins were already gone, but now he happily has DH’s collection to take their place. That made us smile.

    I have a food combination that seems to affect me the way the Cowboy Candy seems to affect you: red pepper jelly with cream cheese. I absolutely love it!

  3. That is so heartwarming, the stein collection gift! That sounds so good, pepper jelly and cream cheese! I will have to make some pepper jelly to try it out, I’ve found a brand of lactose free cream cheese, I am in business!

    Dear Maggie and everyone I have met, through Maggie. I don’t feel like writing now….perhaps in the next week. Short version….long day at University of Texas, southwest…seeing 4 different doctors; having a Cat-scan, ECHO of heart, lots of different lab work…. Sounds like a stressful day and it was. Main revelation….no more aneurysms, and a doc felt all the stents from June of last year look promising.
    But, that isn’t the only tragedy…. My oldest brother died 6/4; No way possible for me to go…will have to make a trip to see my sister-in-law. They live in Lake Charles, La.
    June 7….Jason and Meredith’s birthday. This one was so painful. Ever tried to not cry when you REALLY need to? The birthday really affects Meredith, as she lost her twin brother.
    I will check in with soon….with some positive feelings. Promise. xxoo Margarett

  5. Nancy,

    Wow, you are having quite the week, all those medical tests. I feel worn out just going for a blood test, I cannot imagine the weariness of all that you are going through. That is such good news about the aneurysms and the stents!

    Condolences on the the loss of your brother. {{HUGS}}

    Sorry to hear the birthdays were so painful this year.

    Take good care of yourself.
