Venison Kielbasa, Sweet Potatoes, Red and Yellow Peppers and Cabbage

We will shop again on Thursday and Friday for produce. 


Diet restrictions include

No salt

No prepared or packaged food because of sodium. 

Read labels might be shocked!

Color is best

The New Journey Menu Monday


This photo inspires me.  

Yesterday I shared we are starting our new Journey this week.  

I plan to do some quilting as soon as I am organized and find the quilt tops.  

I/we also plant to make a Menu again. 

This time it will be 'We'.  Always before I pretty much did the planning.  He wasn't too intetested.  

I planned for convenience. 

We will plan for Health reasons. 

He has changed a lot. 

His disease and medications affect his appetite. 

Our menus and eating times revolve around him.  

Also we are planning on moving into our trailer the beginning of November. 

Still waiting on it.  

The move this week makes financial sense.  

About that menu.  I have learned alot in the last few months. 

Not from doctors or nutrionists. 

Thier suggestions were 

Low Sodium Diet

Leafy Greens 

No packaged or prepared foods 

Google has become my friend. 

I will share more next week. 

Come along our Journey to a new Healthy Lifestyle in the Hill Country of Texas.

Make Saturday Sweet Be Thankful


This photo reminds me of a Saturday link party I used to party at. 

It's been awhile I have no clue if it is still there.  I will have to look. 

So this time next Saturday I/we should be in our new home. 

As always for us it has been a Journey. 

A new Journey is around the corner.  

Stay tuned for more.
