Heading off to Europe on the 9th. I'll try and remember some of the local foods and report back in two weeks.

Glad to hear the good news about the Senior Nutrition Program.

Joan, I used to have muscles, but 40 years sitting behind a desk, and another 10 - 15 years of incredible sciatic pain have left me with "bird legs," gouty arthritis in my feet, and a bunch of other little aches and pains that add up to one BIG pain.  And I fall down maybe once a month if I move/turn around too fast.

The day and a half I spent outdoors looking for Pumpkin this past week didn't help at all, but the Senior Nutrition Program is the biggest help I've had in years.  The food IS pretty good, and more variety than I've had since I was cooking for two (Mother and me).  My sister is a vegetarian, and variety doesn't mean much to her, so she does her own cooking...and weighs close to 250 lbs. 

I have lost about 50 lbs in the last 3 years...but I still have dense bones.

In terms of using media to get recipes, I actually like YouTube. I type in "recetas de comida mexicana." Using that, and Google Translate, you can get that absolute best recipes for authentic Mexican food I've ever eaten. Try Bistec Ranchero,  with refried beans and rice. 

Muy Delicioso!

Watching Food Channel's "Beat Bobby Flay" last night, I've decided to make a chicken pot pie tonight. First time. I'll use coconut flour as my crust. Good stuff.

I roasted several varieties of vegetables in my convection oven last night. Very good with olive oil. Since the veggies are mostly out of the freezer (broc., caul, green beans, etc.) they get icy. Nuking and draining them is okay if you want to heat them up quickly, but roasting them makes them much less mushy.

Felaine that is very good news indeed. Our Spokane Meals on Wheels has a fine reputation for delicious food. I hope you meals taste delicious and fill your tummy. 

Ageing does take its toll and each year gets a little harder. I suppose the day will come when the days will get more unpleasant. Right now, I have fine Golden Years. 

I am very sorry your feet and legs give out, You must have built up a lot of muscles while you had your skating career. That has not been a benefit to you?

I'm glad of your good news, Felaine! And I hope the meals are good and to your liking. Some time ago you talked about a plan to go to the hairdresser's - have you had a chance already?

Long story...oru kitchen floor (DIY tiles) is shattering into little bits.  Almost 20 years ago we got a loan from the city Redevelopment Agency (and several thousand bux from State Farm for earthquake damage) to do some major repairs.  One of the "approved" contractors was a JW that my sister knew, so she hired him.  He didn't tell us Jack Shit about the difference (lifetime) between linoleum and glue-down tiles, among many other "little" details. 

I just hope the roof stays put for another 10 or 20 years.  I used to have nightmares about rain coming in my bedroom when we still had wood shingles.  Now we have cheap-looking composition stuff...but it's fireproof and raccoon-proof.

The JW contractor is dead now, so we can't sue him.  The SOB.

Thank you both!

But I'm am kind of two minds about the whole thing; up until a couple of years ago I really LOVED to cook....especially baking cakes and cookies....and soup.  I even taught myself (after watching many TV shows) how to make a really decent omelet. Now, just scrambling a couple of eggs is beyond me most days.
