I haven't taken any pictures of what I cooked this week because I didn't! So, we have eaten from the cooking class only 2 things! I think it's because I'm tired from work and just doing what is easy! Also, I hate to say it, but my leg hurts again. I had back surgery one year ago for that reason and here I am again with leg pain, not as bad, but it's back!!! So, what do I do now, I suppose I should call the Dr and talk to him, but it depresses me to think that way!!! All this to say, I'm hoping to show pictures from Sat and the bowling party! Blessings!!!

Today is my birthday!!! I have had a great day! Beautiful flowers from our daughter and son in law!! Gordon took me to Foxxy's, we hadn't eaten there for probably 3 years. The food is so good there and I had a great steak!! Thanks Mark!!! My friend Mary, took me to Alley Cats for coffee after work. I got a rice krispy bar for snack tonight instead of cake!! So good and full of calories, so back on the diet tomorrow!! I have not made one thing from the cooking class, just not enough hours in the day!! Blessings!

rain, snow, pellets of snow/ rain and more snow

Sunday is our day of rest! Today has been that for us! Gordon had one call today for a furnace and went out this morning for a couple of hours! So, the weather has been a real mix bag of elements. Pellets of snow/rain mix started us out, then BIG flakes of snow, then rain, snow, more BIG flakes and then just snow. We must have about 5 inches of new snow now on the ground. The highway is tricky to travel, but I'm sure they are out plowing!!! I made a cheesecake that tastes like cheesecake, but not made with sugar, I used stevia! The recipe I used is the following: 2 packages of 8oz. cream cheese, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup of sour cream and 9 packets of stevia. I went a little sweet, but you really can't tell. Bake this for 40 minutes at 350. Cool and then chill. I served it with strawberries, not sweetened!! Very good. I will make this again, maybe almond flavoring next time! Tomorrow I start my class online, I bet you all will be sick of me talking about it by the time 8 weeks is up, but I'm really excited!! Check out Heather's website, She will not post any recipes from this class, but has said she might share a few from previous classes! Please be careful out there while traveling tomorrow or tonight! Blessings and hugs!!!! Oh and by the way, this little girl our Shealyn turned 13 last week!!! Hard to believe! Happy birthday!!

Well, here it is Tuesday and a ho-hum day at that! My new eating routine is becoming routine and for the better!! I'm not so great at taking all the vitamins, but trying!! I feel really good and still have cravings, but I'm off soda pop( I really, really really want a diet coke) and it's not so bad! I want something sweet at night to and haven't figured that out yet, so I eat nothing! I think I will make the cheesecake I can have, but just need a few things to make it! Just to let you all know that my birthday is in 2 weeks, I'm so excited! I start a new online cooking class next Monday which was my gift from Gordon. If my family is reading this, I would like some Fiesta ware dishes to replace the settings I have, hint- hint!! Maybe lime green and yellow or the Salmon pink. Just saying! Blessings!

This week I got an email from a friend that I have known for 3 years. She and her husband are really great people, but she was telling me an...
