Happy Holidays From Ruby and Gracy - All Dolled Up!

They think that they need to act quiet when they're groomed and decorated. Happy Holidays from Al and I, but today the greeting is especially from Roob and Grace. They won't be clean and pretty for long!

Getting Political

I'll make it short since I've vowed not to get political on my blog. I got a little roused at Newt last week for claiming how poor kids in poor neighborhoods have no work ethic. That's an enormous generalization. I was a single Mom who lived in a lower rent apartment. In fact, I managed the entire complex in order to cover my rent. My Son watched me go from one job to another while shoveling snow from the walkways and dealing with management problems. So, Newt, you are not entirely correct about that ethic thing.

Secondly, I was insulted when Sarah Palin commented on how Polls were for strippers. Sarah, you don't have to believe in political polls, I don't either, but your stripper comment was really stupid.

My complaint today though is about Ann Coulter calling John McCain a douchebag. Seriously? A Douchebag. I will admit that John McCain is not my favorite, but isn't that REALLLLLLY tacky? Even sleezy?

Now, we have a debate coming up scheduled to be moderated by Donald Trump. Newt is the only one signed up so far. This is bound to be a narrow minded Good Old Boy, Barack Obama, Ben Bernanke bashing hour of television. Count me out. Wake me up when the righteous, bad hair, fat belly, has been, greed fest is over. I really don't like feeling this way. Can't we all just get along?

Better Than Sour Cream

Nutrition has become a large part of my job in the kitchen. How Al and I got to be as old as 59 ... going on 60 is beyond me. And the next thing you know, I’m reading labels for fat, salt, cholesterol, and more. I work to keep our weight in check while lowering cholesterol. I like to cook, and I love to eat, so it has become a major project to find good tasting foods that fall into an acceptable category.

The latest food that I’ve found is a sour cream replacement. Truthfully, most soy cheese replacement products taste like paint. But how can you have tacos, soup. or pasta without a little cheese of some sort?

On my last trip to the Whole Foods Market, I decided to try a product made by Tofutti, called Better than Sour Cream. Wow, this stuff is delicious! I had a dollop on my lentil soup last night and actually felt like I was eating comfort food! This stuff is really delicious! No dairy, no fat, simply soy. Great!

What IS next?

 It seems like the Covid 19 Vaccinations are going faster than expected, but states are opening up equally as fast. I want to get out again!...
