Saturday Tastiness

Okay, I did something really dumb last night and at my age, and with my experience, I have no excuse. I ate some gluten.  It was delicious.  I knew it was gluten-ized food and I ate it anyway.

Well, I paid the price all night and have been up for 5 hours and it isn’t even 9 a.m.  So having been up that long, I thought breakfast food was ridiculous.  Not as ridiculous as eating gluten, but still not a great idea.  My tummy has been flip flopping for about 12 hours now and I start thinking maybe it is safe to put something else in there now.

I start rummaging around in the freezer and see a Hilary’s Eat Well Hemp and Greens Burger package.  So I put one in the toaster oven and wasn’t terribly satisfied that it was brown enough after the suggested time and popped it in a skillet to just brown it a bit more.  OMG – OMG – OMG! Amazing.  I could eat these every day.  Seriously.

I hope the majority of you don’t have to eat gluten free but if you do…this stuff has your name written all over it!

Happy Weekend! We are getting ready to have all our kids here for a meal tonight plus my little man Sam…I love that boy!

Meet Jane Addams (September 6, 1860 – May 21, 1935)

No not of THAT Addams family.  Though I do love Morticia.  A lot.  This is one of those spectacular woman in history that we never were told about.  Or at least I wasn’t.  To be honest, I wasn’t told about much history of any kind.  My education sucked.  Not joking. I wish I could say to you I think my meds have erased that memory but I fear I never had it.  How?  How did I not know about her?

I mean the woman was the first American woman to be award the Nobel Peace Prize.  And I didn’t know she ever lived or what she did.  I am not only ashamed of my education, I am ashamed I don’t know more about the women who have shaped the world I have raised my kids in.

Better than me just giving you facts about a woman I knew nothing about until this morning, look her up for yourselves.  She is worth getting to know.  I found her wiki page fascinating and I just ordered a used copy of this book:

So I will leave you this Friday to go about the tons of things I need to get done before company arrives for the last weekend before Jerry goes back to work.  I vowed to write every day and then quickly fell down on that promise.  Such is my life.  Good intentions.  Poor execution.  BUT guess what is coming up VERY VERY SOON! A Gooseberry Patch review and giveaway! Squeeeeee!!!!!!!!!  I am excited! Can you tell?

See you all soon.  Love and Peace to each of you.

Namaste!
