My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

The "Start eating healthy Plan"

Okay, we have had enough cookies, candy, and snack foods. I wanted to start planning our dinner meals by a weekly menu plan. Often Clay & I just decide on a whim of what to prepare for dinner. We both enjoy cooking and trying new spices & sauces. We tend to over indulge but Clay got bombarded with great gifts on Christmas with fabulous spices, rubs & BBQ sauce recipes. Thanks everyone!

I plan to make every effort to cook healthy and try my best to stick to a plan. We need to eat more fish and I just happen to have a nice fillet of Cod in the freezer. After looking through about 6 cookbooks and gleaning bits of recipes I think I have it. We have eaten some of the best vegetables from our garden and taking a freezer inventory I am now aware that I did not freeze enough corn. *putting that on my garden seed list for this year* As I rummaged deeper, to my surprise I find some sugar snap peas so that will be accompaning the cod. I think perhaps I can add a wedge of lettuce with some fresh homemade French dressing to the plate as well. I better pop a jar of canned pears in the refrig to chill for dessert. Where did I put those shortbread cookies mom made? You didn't expect me to Not have something sweet did you?
