Hear the flutter of Wings

Should-da Know-ed

Thoughts and Ideas....I'll throw a fishin' line out into the "Gray Goo-eee Matter" located somewhere in that "Bone-eee Brain House" that sits on the end of the "Broom Stick" that someone shoved up my backside on a whim so, I can try to drag one of those "fish-eee thing-eees' back out. After that I gets to toss it into this chere fryin' pan. That is, of course, if I don't swipe a "fish-eee thing-eee" out of someone-elses "fish-eee bucket" to which I'll give full credit to the someone-else that I swiped his/her "fish-eee thing-eee" out of thier "fish-eee bucket" and then toss it into this chere fryin' pan.

Language and Spellin'....I'll try to keep most of the "Gutter Talk" from gettin' into each post. Yaw'll notice that I did say "TRY". As for the other, IF I can find it in Webster's...IF NOT, get Yaw'll's "cryin' towel" ready cause Yaw'll might need it.

Laughter...Doin' my best to discover how to put it into words which is a lot harder than I thought it would be but, somewhere along the line I sure am a-hopin' that I succeed in puttin' a smile onto Yaw'll's faces.

Politics....Now that Can and Does get very opinionated and quite Heated around these parts. So, the "Gutter Talk" may rear its ugly head more than once. If, Yaw'll don't want to see it at those times then cover Yaw'll's eyes cause I don't provide "Eye Wash". Times are tuff--don't Yaw'll know.

Religion....I've got mine .. so my opinion is mine. Yaw'll got yours .. so Yaw'll's opinion is Yaw'lls. I may give my opinion. Yaw'll may comment back according to Yaw'll's opinion. BUT, we won't be a-chingin' each other's opinion, now will we.

So Yaw'll come on in, sit it down and puts Yaw'll's feet up and see if Yaw'll might find somthin' that'll catch Yaw'll's intrest for awhile. Yaw'll be sure to leave me a comment so I'll know how my "fish-eee thing-eees" are a-cookin' in this chere fryin' pan.

I hears ya, .. I HEARS YA. Damn, my bird sa squawkin', and I needs my cup of Hot Tea with it "little ole splash" of Bourbon to help take the chill off.

So .. Yaw'll come on back and see what I pulled out of my "fish-eee bucket" .... Yaw'll hear.

Diabetic Cooking.....????

No I'm not diabetic..
."B-B" is.    {and he considers it a royal pain because he knows that a lot that he likes he shouldn't be eating especially sweets...his down-fall.} 
He is able to control it ... for now ...  with diet and portion control which means I've got to learn a whole new way of cooking and serving food.    {so far doing this he's dropped about 75 pounds [was around 350].  If he can, maybe with me on the same diet/portion control,  I can too.}
I have a few books on that subject for his use from the last time he was here but then we were cooking for ourselves because our schedules were different.  [That's when the doctor informed him and spoke about diet and/or meds.]
Now ...  I'll be heading to the grocery store with an admended shopping list to get some things to help cook meals because there are a lot of things that I have on hand and usually cook that are big no-no's.
So when using my old standbys that I got stored in my gray goo-eee matter,  they will have to be altered.  Sounds like loads of "fun" doesn't it.
Also, when I am being adventurous and making up my own receipes I'll have to make certain that it is as close to the guide lines that are in those diabetic cook books that I've already got on hand.

So tonight it will be :

baked country pork ribs smothered in onions with a very light coating of honey mustard sauce
twiced baked fries with lite salt and fresh cracked black pepper
steamed broccoli with chopped Kalamati olives with a sprinklying of lemon juice and bacon bits

Oh and everybody I took today {Tuesday} off so "B-B's" bedroom rug at his old place did not get done. 
My right wrist {that I injured earlier this month when there was ice on the streets} was in the total mode of pain and this cold weather really isn't helping.  [So, it will be later this week when I tackle that rug.]
And I put on one of my wrist braces to stop it from the wrong movements and to give it extra support as I try to accomplish a few things today.

Now that everybody that wanted me to get some rest got their wish...you can stop wishing now. 
Smiling and laughing.  Thanks guys.

Just cook the right amount. If there is more, y'all will eat more regardless of how good it is for you. Portions is important. Take it from a diabetic who doesn't give a shit.

Hi Blog-Daddy

Welp, I cooked up a meal for 6 and we divided it up into 3 meals each before we even began to have diner.
"B-B" took one of his meals with him for lunch today.
He was impressed with the sauce I made. I saved all that wasn't portioned out to add to some soup/stew for flavoring.
Yep I'm learning.
Think it will be easier to measure out the portion if I go get some plates that are divided up into sections...baby plates [portions] would be about right. Thank goodness for saran wrap and plastic zip-lock baggies.
