The last blog of 2021! Can you believe it? Are you ready for 2022?

As you know, I have been feeling a bit under the weather lately. So I have been trying to create nourishing food that is still simple to make.

This is a stew of sorts. I used some Gardein frozen crumbles, frozen peas and carrots, Thrive brand marinara sauce, a pint of grape tomatoes, one summer squash and one zucchini. 2 jars of water and one cup of macaroni noodles. Cooked til done. I didn’t even add any seasoning. It turned out much tastier than I expected, yet mild enough for my tender tummy.

I don’t do resolutions. I like goals. They are flexible and fail proof. I set a goal and just work on it until it is accomplished. No guilt or shame.

This year my goals are to study my scriptures more in depth, to learn to play my guitar better, and to up my daily steps.

Do you have any goals for the new year?

Happy New Year, everybody!

This will be short and sweet. I don’t have the bug, but I do have a bug. Too exhausted to put out a blog today.

But wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hoping you can find a way to celebrate with family and friends.

I sang O Thou That Tellest Good Tidings to Zion about 3 weeks ago in church and then last Sunday I sang He Shall Feed His Flock. Both pieces from Handel’s Messiah. My favorite pieces to sing.

That’s how I do Christmas. Hope yours is filled with music as well.

This will be short and sweet. I went to get my mammogram today.

I have a lifelong friend who, by way of a mammogram, found cancer that would not have been detected in any other way. They were able to remove it, saving her life. She has been cancer-free for over 6 years now.

Do your cancer screening. It could save your life.

How do you take care of your health?

Can y’all believe it’s December? I’m doing a what I eat in a day blog.

I never feel like eating in the morning, so this was simple and light.

Lunch was leftovers from last night. It started out to be a sort of minestrone, but ended up being a macaroni casserole. It has macaroni, carrots, onions, celery, grape tomatoes and cabbage cooked in veggie broth and seasoned with garlic, onion and Italian seasoning. It turned out much tastier than I expected!

Dinner is potato soup full of veggies. Carrots, celery and onions, and broccoli. I used hemp milk in it and seasoned with onion and garlic powder. It smells delicious!

What are you eating this December first?
