Planted Salad Veggies

Today, I planted two kinds of lettuce and some spinach.  I have a cucumber thicker than my thumb and two squash almost as thick as my pinkie.  Half of my zucchini plants aren’t looking so good.  One looked done for and another was almost there, so I pulled those two up.  I moved a third one to a different spot in the bed, thus making room for my new salad veggies.

A Week of Jogging

This past week, I’ve been jogging twice a day, for at least 5 minutes at a time.  When I felt up to it, I would also do workouts from the Runner’s World Beginning Running Program.  That involved jogging 1 min./ walking 2 min. 10 times (30 min.) one day and walking 30 min. the next.

I made banana pudding with the Sugar Free, Fat Free Vanilla Jello Singles.  I also used whipped cream, bananas, Nilla Wafers, and of course, milk.  You add a Jello Single to 1/2 cup of milk.  Then, you stir for 90 seconds and let it sit for 5 minutes.  If you’re doing more than one serving (in separate cups), it’s much easier to just make a normal batch of pudding (4 serving box).  Plus, without the added bananas and Nilla wafers, there didn’t seem to be much pudding to eat.

So, will Jello Singles work for me in the future?  Yes, if I want to have pudding at work.  They’ll also work if I’m the only one wanting pudding at home, provided that I add wafers and bananas.  I suppose that if you’re on a diet, the chocolate pudding singles with mini chocolate chips and fat free whipped cream would work.  Also, I can see kids bringing them to school, drinking half of their milk, pouring in the pudding single, and shaking their milk carton to make pudding.

Here are some pictures.

I’m also including a picture of my menu.  I printed the calendar on Cindysporch.com.

The one failure - my fault completely

The one failure - my fault completely... I accidentally combined two recipes. Don't combine lemon rind, dill, and basil. Yuck. (Either that or I just don't like the taste of dill.)

This past weekend, in preparation for a shopping trip to buy groceries in anticipation of cooking delightfully-delectible dinners, I realized that I didn’t know what was hiding in the depths of my freezer.  Thus, I printed a Freezer Inventory from Organizedhome.com, took everything out of my freezer, organized it, wrote down what I had, and put everything back in the freezer.  I have a basket on the left for meat and a basket on the right for vegetables.  I put the fruits in the shelving on the door.  I stacked pizzas on top.

I was surprised to find that I had 3 bags of cooked chicken fajita meat, a pound of raw shrimp, and two bags of tortillas.

I divided my Freezer Inventory (I printed two pages) into meat, vegetables, fruits, and other.  Here are some pictures.

When making several blouses at once, and being quite busy at work, so that you’re extremely lazy in the cleaning department at home, I’ve noticed that I tend to have piles of fabric pieces.  Here are some pictures.  I’m also including an “assembly line” neckline/interfacing photo, as well as a pic of all 8 fabrics.

On the left, we have neck pieces.  In the middle, we have sleeves.  On top, we have bodice pieces.

These look like bodice front and backs, pinned and ready to be sewn together.

Here is a picture of assembly-line attaching of fusible interfacing.
