Time for Reality Check....Chicken Soup for the Soul!

Image
Chicken Soup for Flavor, Comfort, and for the Soul is always a welcome, whether you are on a diet...or not, but just enjoying  a nice cup, or bowl  of fresh homemade chicken soup!

As you know, I have announced my diet to the whole world, and also mentioned which kind of diet I am pursuing~
Well, I still stick to my WeightWatchers Diet that I lost 35 lbs in 3 months, which was 7 yrs ago, and have gained the weight back...only. because I just did not care, or keep track of what I'm actually eating...and that does add up over months and years...do not fool yourself, because, it does make a difference to keep track of what you are eating!
I think good home made soup is the best therapy for the soul, and also for a healthy DIET! Since I chose Weight Watchers Diet online, this time...knowing my point system, this is the best, of the best chicken noodle soup recipe that I already have been making for years, and years, but you can always revise it!  As long as you have the basic chicken sou…

Pan Seared Salmon...and Pinched Nerve!

Image
I seem to have been MIA for the last two days...and actually I was. Did any of you experience a pinched nerve in the neck, back, shoulders? Well, I do not wish the excruciating pain on my worse enemy. (don't have one, luckily)
I woke up two days ago with tingling, numbness on my shoulder, only to find out later in the day that my arm, hurts so bad, and my shoulder feels, like someone punched me in the arm. a stabbing pain, that went down to my forearm, on the right side. I immediately went to my chiropractor, who is also a physical therapist, and he said the it is cause by a pinched nerve on my neck that went down to my shoulder. I could not move my arm, or lift it, could barely drive my car, just with the left hand, which was not the problem, but putting the car into park, or taking the key out of the ignition was even painful.
Here's a little bit of info I found online about pinched nerve, which does make a lot of sense. This afternoon I'm at least able to use my hand...…

Grilled Striped Sea Bass... and Online Bake Sale

Image
I have to confess, I did not make the delicious and so flaky Striped Sea Bass...not even the hand chopped side veggies. It was delivered to me yesterday by my daughter Lora, and her mother-in-law Teresa. Such a sweet gesture. They stopped by just in time for lunch, bringing so much food, from my son-in-law's restaurant, and also my son Joe, and wife Cara brought more goodies, and cat food supplies...and why? you may ask.

Clumsy me, I sprained my ankle Friday afternoon, picking up my granddaughter from her elementary school, as I have been doing for the last two weeks, and running errands for Lora, until she recuperates and can drive. Well, that was cut short...thanks to me!

Sometimes, taking a short-cut walking,  after you have parked your car three blocks away because there wasn't any parking available near by is not the answer...especially with shoes that are not the most comfortable. I missed stepping off a curb, and literally "wiped out"...sigh...so embarrassing.…

Italian Sausage and Peppers

Image
Before I post the recipe for my Italian sausage and peppers, I will proudly show off my Suzanne Somers stainless steel skillet, 10 in. in diameter, has a nice non-skid handle, and the best part was, that this skillet has never been used by any one. I paid $2.99 for it, at Goodwill, and I've had it for over 1 year. In order to cook or fry on high heat, you must either have a cast iron skillet, or a calphalon, or a heavy duty stainless steel, as it is in this case. You will only destroy you nice non-stick pan. I absolutely love this frying skillet, it's easy to clean, even if you get burns on there. When you soak it in hot soapy water, the stain just rolls off. I am all green practically, with cleaning supplies. Just simply scour it with baking soda...takes the place of the strong chemical scouring powder, and you can also clean your sink with the baking soda, and will freshen up your garbage disposal. So now, on to my recipe...actually not really a recipe, just the instruction …

A Nice Salad, and "WOMEN FOOD AND GOD"

Image
I've been obsessing the last couple weeks, about my life,  and doing a little (lot) of soul searching, what is it with us women that we always have to be worrying about our weight? It should be more of a problem how you look, and how you feel, not because of that magic number which could be either joyful, or detrimental to our self image. If you feel good, and you are comfortable with yourself, no matter the size, (except obesity)-which is another subject, then why torture yourself, "what if I loose 10 lbs, 30 lbs, or maybe 50? Well, if you set your mind on it and you really want to do it, then by all means set your goal.
I ordered this "gently used" book from Amazon.com ( remember? I'm a thrifter.) I just cant' seem to put it down, it is really intriguing, and tugging at your "heart sleeve" about these stories of women that have been trying to lose weight for years with all the diets that are out there, only to lose it and gain more weight back. …
