Take care on those roads..... Menu looks good.... Happy Day!

chidogs on 01/13/2010:
Good luck today and be careful out there.

hollybelle on 01/13/2010:
Oh - icy roadways! We get that here. This year snow, though. Thanks for the suggestion on superfoods. I need to eat more of those. I'll look up a list of them. I love raspberries best of all - but love berries in general. I have been just getting over a chest cold and I think that has contributed to tired feeling, too. Took mucinex again to day and feel better.

Yeah, Hubbard is the same as long-necked squash. I used the latter term because I wasn't sure but knew that "long-necked" would clarify what I had.

hollybelle on 01/11/2010:
Thanks for the post. I appreciate the support. Also - if you have a good wheat-free bread recipe I'd like to try it...if not too much trouble and no hurry. Thanks!!

Whew! Glad for your safety. Can't beat a little bit of adventure, huh?! Have a good one today.

greengirl on 01/11/2010:
Hey Nenak, thanks for calling by my diary. The picture was taken in a chilly, but sunny Leamington Spa on Saturday. On our way home to Manchester on Sunday we came up your side of the Pennines and then across via the M62. There seemed to be a lot of snow about still. Back here in Manchester we are starting the thaw at last :)

MoodyMe on 01/11/2010:
Wow~glad you guys made it home safe n sound!! That had to be stressful!

Great menu today and congratulations on the getting rid of that pound!! It all adds up!

...looks like you are writing an entry right now!

i see you like stews. i can never get myself to eat lots of soups and stews. not sure why. i just don't love them.

have a good day. you've been eating well!

geevee on 01/09/2010:
I had everything I needed for cottage pie, so I made one yesterday. I think what is sold as minced meat where you live is called ground, here. I had leftover rotisserie chicken which I minced into itty bitty pieces. For the "swede" I used a long-necked squash plus half a leftover sweet potato.

It was so fast and easy to prepare and I enjoyed eating it so much! Thank you for introducing me to this delight. I have about 1.5 C left from yesterday which I'm looking forward to early afternoon.

hollybelle on 01/09/2010:
Dancing with the dvd!! woo-hoo!

panda22 on 01/09/2010:
Your omelet sounds great! Very nutritious lunch =) Dancing DVDs are very fun! I love how you don't really feel like it's exercise at all, and it doesn't get boring! Have a great evening! Careful in that snow!!!

MoodyMe on 01/09/2010:
Your menu today looks absolutely delicious and so healthy!! Gave me some good ideas!

Cold and snowing here too but the roads are being kept clear..Be safe and have fun!!!

willbe100lbs on 01/09/2010:
Oh id love to learn how to ski! Hope your able to fit it in! Well done for losing what you have already too...The roads here are awful, the coucil have run out of grit so it's just so dangerous, really not worth risking going out. Anyway, well done... take care and keep in touch xx

good morning,

minced meat is beef (or pork or turkey) minced into very tiny pieces and sold as minced meat! swede is a vegtable like turnip(i think) its hard and orange and we boil and sometimes mash it with margerine! tastes great and i use it as an alternative to potatoes but it doesnt taste the same!

another snow or should i say ice day today so im in the middle of the house work, changed the beds dusted, hovered and now im about to tackle the bathroom.  in between im playing doctors with the little one.  it was -18 degree celcuis here last night and it has stopped food getting to the shops!  we are firmly staying put untill mid afternoon when i hope we are going to hit the slopes! so menu for today:

b - yoghurt, raspberries, coffee, water

l- soup (homemade) with a superb view of weardale valley, coffee, water

d - mince and dumplings yoghurt raspberries, coffee, water

s- apple, banana

be safe, be healthy

Hiya,managed to get to asda this morning,in some places there are no food on the shelves everyone stocking up.I'm not too bad i live about 5mins walk from asda,and there is a sainsbury's about 10mins walk away.I needed to get some pedigree for the dog and i don't fancy carrying that!!!Have a good weekend, yay day off tomorrow.Ta Ta Jules

legcramps on 01/08/2010:
I like your lunch!! Very cute. Hope you have a great day today!

geevee on 01/08/2010:
Thanks for your explanation of swede. I can't wait to make cottage pie.

hollybelle on 01/08/2010:
I never heard of swede. Good to know......I love turnips!! No one else at my house does, though. Boy it sounds like your weather is brutal. Stay warm and keep up the good work. Raspberries - sound great. I bough some beautiful ones today, too. They were fairly pricey, but I will pay a bit for healthy stuff that I know will definitely get all eaten up. Can't stand to waste food - hey that might be part of my "problem"!

starfish on 01/08/2010:
Keep up the good work :-)

panda22 on 01/08/2010:
Enjoy the rest of your day and try to stay warm...BRRRR! Great menu today =D

mcwoo40 on 01/07/2010:
My girls have gone in today,the main roads are ok but apparently the asda car park is like an ice rink.The cottage pie sounds delish,although i can never wait to let the top crisp up as i want it in me belly!!!Bye Jules

legcramps on 01/07/2010:
Have a great day today!

hollybelle on 01/07/2010:
Yum cottage pie - is that in crust? What is swede? I see you and Jules mentioning that in your menus. Lean mince - is that beef? Keep up the good work. Sorry about the snow days. Unsettling - I like routine. My daughter is out of High School and not in college (yet) - working so no worries about snow days. It's snowing hard here. Only 2-4 accumulation predicted, though. Keep up the good work and thanks for the comments! I need encouragement and I'll try to be encouraging!

geevee on 01/07/2010:
Your cottage pie sounds so good! As Hollybelle asked, please explain "mince" and "swede". I know I'd love it. Thanks!

nita51 on 01/07/2010:
Not drinking enough water is my downfall.. but I'm getting better at it. Your doing fantastic, and the sound of your cottage pie, makes me hungry, thanks for sharing the recipe.

MoodyMe on 01/07/2010:
LOL...I have the same questions as Holly regarding your food~swede and minced meat? ...I love how we are from all over the world and are exposed to different cultures!!

Lots of snow here in West Virginia! Stay safe and warm!!
