now browsing by month
Some how, I keep ending up in food debates, or rather vain attempts at trying to help educate others on what goes into their bodies. I constantly see someone else i ‘know’ being surprised and disgusted over something they’ve just learned, but that I’ve know for ages. For instance “mechanically Separated chicken”
|yes, this nastiness is mechanically separated chicken|
Do you know what this goo is made into? Fast food chicken patties and nuggets, hot dogs and deli meats. yep all that and more. Read labels folks. This stuff is horrid. Full of chemicals and scraps of meat you really wouldn’t even want to feed Fido. Over the past several years, I’ve cut out as many processed foods as possible – no more trips to McDonald’s or burger king if i can help it. if so, the kids eat burgers – the lesser of 2 evils.
It’s way past time for a post. I was all geared up and ready to post I’m guessing near a month ago, but whatever had gotten me all fired up, i was able to let go, and has now been forgotten. Must have been side effects of mercury retrograde. C’est La vie! (hey 7th grade french comes in handy sometimes lol)
So, over the past month, there’s been one birthday, celebration of Yule & Christmas (mostly in memory of my grandma that passed 10 years ago) Christmas consisted of mini omelets and mimosa’s for breakfast, and snacking of deviled eggs, while dinner was ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and a few other items. I’ll be the first to thank this wonderful town we moved to. If it weren’t for the generous caring people there wouldn’t have been anything to celebrate with. - no food, and definitely no gifts. Gifts are just a wonderful bonus, to me. I’ve also done my best to instill this into my kids as well. You don’t need presents for yule or christmas to be happy or to have a good time. it’s about family and sharing your time together. My BIGGEST gift i got? All FOUR yes, i’ve got 4 minions remember?, were home with me this year. over the last 7 years my girls were gone and spending the winter holiday with their fathers.
Anyway, things haven’t gotten any better for us financially. I always feel like one breath away from losing it all.. I’m trying really hard to just go day by day.. doing this now, has caused my eczema to start flaring up again – in really inconvenient places. again C’est La Vie
Ok, so what else has happened – hmmm.. my parents finally came up the weekend of new years, brought some gifts for the kids, and took us to dinner. The place we went too, OMG! i’ve GOT to go back and have dinner there again. The 66 Restaurant in Blue Hill is FANTASTIC! Then for NYE – we went out, a bit late for the “Last Night” festivities. there wasn’t much there, and because we went late, the younger ones were a bit crabby. They all managed to stay up at least until midnight, and we all toasted each other – kids had some sparkling cider, while the huz and i had some barefoot moscato ‘champagne’.
There has been a couple decent snow storms, got some great pics of the kids playing in the snow as well. We’re also in for some more snow starting tomorrow.
well since this has gotten quite long, i’ll save the witchy stuff for another post.
