Have a great day off! Pumpkin bread sounds delicious...

Horn_of_plenty on 01/20/2020:
its good, though, i don't think i like almond flour anymore...i may be switching to regular and it will save me money, too!


happy-1 on 01/20/2020:
Good job making time for yourself on a holiday weekend

Horn_of_plenty on 01/20/2020:
thank you happy, it worked out really well today!!!! :-)


Donkey on 01/21/2020:
You had a very productive day on your day off! Me, on the other hand, went thi within, and didn't accomplish much of anything (lol).

Lately, I haven't been able to tolerate the xylitol and erythritol sweeteners. I have a batch of jellied cranberries that I can only eat in small bites before the sweetener becomes overwhelming. I thought adding ricotta cheese would help cut the taste but all I want thi eat is the ricotta.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/21/2020:
but ricotta isn't so bad for you ...that sounds interesting...instead of cottage cheese..

also, i'm soooo sorry that the sweeteners are having that effect on you...i seem to crave them lately. i sweeten things so much...from all yogurts, oatmeal, coffee...i love it...the cranberries.


Donkey on 01/21/2020:
^^ I'm not happy with this recent change in taste or tolerance, either. Sad...

"fell back to sleep after breakfast..." - JEALOUS! (ha ha ha ha)

I hope you have a pleasant evening with your folks. Do you plan to stay overnight?

Horn_of_plenty on 01/19/2020:
falling asleep is good, but be proud of yourself that you pushed yourself on the weekend!

also, i did stay at parents as the weather was a slight snow storm...just a few inches and it melted by morning but was snowing all night! not a heavy snow and then it rained. so i was glad to sleep over parents.

If you are going to get the same storm we have had and will get more tonight...we now have a depth of 6 inches and 2 or 3 more tonight...

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/17/2020:
that's a lot of snow! i don't think so, we will get 1-3 inches supposedly on Saturday afternoon...


Donkey on 01/17/2020:
We're getting like 5 inches of snow overnight. The drive home was not fun but either I've gotten better or it wasn't that bad because it was NOT white knuckles on the steering wheel.

Sounds like you have a good plan for Saturday!

horn_of_plenty on 01/19/2020:
Proud of you !!!! We got around 3 inches must at once but continuing over several hours slow moving :)

I have a EPILSLIM.... (menopause comes with chin hair that I swear if you do not get rid of they will get long enough to braid...LOL)...and it can hurt sometimes...is the one you have painful? A daughter in law asked us for one for christmas once and she was excited to try it.....it didn't take her long to let me know that she wanted me to take it back to the store....I gave her the $50 and I returned it.....of course that is the same gal that bent her wedding ring and couldn't get it off her finger...so stupid me...got out the dish soap and I got that ring off...with her howling all through the process....( I don't think she ever forgave me...)...but it had to be done...my Dad was waiting there with the ring sizer to round it out again. Some people can take some pain and others can't I guess.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/15/2020:
i couldn't agree more with you on everything. You are so funny!

Mine is called HENA. It's not very painful, but i can feel it, yes.
