In trying to use up last year's potatoes, I made potato pancakes. Not all that great, let me tell you. Whereas I use to eat cold cereal for breakfast every morning, I'm down to about once in five days. Cutting back on eating grains is not easy.
I buy sugar-free A&W root beer; that makes up for the sugar in the ice cream. And I only do this once or twice a year, so I don't think it's having any effect on my carb count. You're NOT supposed to give up everything at once.
I never liked cooking pasta, so I haven't made any since mother died, and I haven't had white bread (or much of any bread) for 15 years. Today's tortilla wrap was the first in 6 months. I do NOT feel deprived.
FRESH strawberries are GOOD for you....more vit. C than oranges, for one thing. I've also been making cranberry sauce with Splenda for 15 years. Can't tell the difference....certainly better than canned.
Some day I'll tell y'all about the summer I worked in the payroll office at Cal Fame (OJ plant.) As Grumpy Cat says, "It was AWFUL!"
YES! A Rootbeer float-sundae! Those days are gone now! A nice glass of ice water with a slice of lemon for flavor. Prunes on the side.
I had (Haagen Dazs) vanilla ice cream in root beer, in an insulated mug. I was thinking about adding some ice cubes to make it frostier, but was too thirsty. Actually, I would rather have had Dreyers vanilla, but I didn't want to buy that much ice cream.
I have enough of everything left over for another one tonight....MUCH later. I'm still full from a skimpy bacon & lettuce tortilla wrap I ate 5 or 6 hours ago.
BUT......CHOCOLATE sauce? With root beer? Srsly? Never heard of that, much less tried it. I sometimes buy root beer and cream soda, and mix them half & half....with a few drops of vanilla extract.
I'm kinda the odd one in this family, I can take chocolate or leave it. Hot cocoa on a wintry day is nice, but we haven't had any winter in over a year.
(I do like the velvety super-dark chocolate bars, but it gives me migraines....you should have seen my mother's face light up when I told her THAT!)
Michael, I had a similar relation with a white tailed deer here in southernmost Illinois, about 10 years ago. A doe, she used to come up to me and lick my hand, as I petted here head. Look into each other's eyes. It's amazing!
I opened up my sour cherry juice from Stovenia a while ago and that makes a good drink.
These days I'm having an almost daily conversation with a robin who made a nest on my front porch. She cheeps and hops right up to me. Crazy bird. I can go out and say "where are you?" and here she comes.
Daniel, you sound like the rational physician now! Oh Fie! To have a root beer float topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and a lovely sprinkle of nuts on top!
When I was on the diet about 3 days, I was shopping and saw that I was approaching the ice cream parlor that sells delicious Ice cream for $1 a scoop or cup. I looked at my clock and saw that it was just past their opening time of noon, so I popped-in.
I started to order three cups of varieties that I've not tried before, when I realized I was on the Atkins diet, so I took the one cup she had made, took it home and put it in the freezer, where it still resides until I start adding carbs back in the diet.
Two healthy things to do, according to some science magazines: eat chocolate and watch cat movies. Or have daily conversations with cats!
