Monday This and That

It is never too late
to be what you
might have been.

Good morning, all.  Well, the weekend is over, and it's time to start a new week.  Not much on my agenda now until September.  I do attend a 'Walk with Ease' program run by the Arthritis Foundation on Mondays which is where I am headed today.  In nicer weather we go to parks to walk; in hot, humid, or rainy weather we walk indoors.  Hard going to malls and not spending anything.  Last time I broke down and bought some light cologne sprays from Body and Bath Works.  Awesome.

On Friday I headed back to Owl's Head.  I had a such lovely day.   I was just loving the smell of the freshly cut grass and as I moved deeper into the woods, I felt the cool breeze rustling through the trees. I was born in the Northern Jersey countryside so this brought back so many memories of country summers. What more can I say. It was just an awesome day.

Started out for the park again on Saturday and then remembered that the buses are a problem on weekends when they work on the trains. So, I came back home and headed for my kitchen. I eat lots of veggies so I figured I would get a jump start on the week. I do eat meat, but only about 3 ounces and carbs only two to three times a week. Mostly I fill up on veggies.

One thing I made was Turnip Greens. They are so loaded with calcium. Most people make them with pork fat or bacon. I love them that way but not the sodium that comes with it. So, here's my way that tastes just as good (in my book that is).

Turnip Greens
1 can Campbell's low sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup water
minced garlic
1/2 tsp sugar
Black pepper to taste

Boil all together and strain.

I am so looking forward to September.  School begins.  Funny how I was always the one that HATED school, hated it so much that I dropped out as soon as I turned 18...a little over two months before graduation.  As I got older I really regretted it.  I see invitations to reunions that I am not a part of, and it does hurt in a way, but education wise, I sure did make up for it.

Have a good one.
