   Escaped commieny posted on Pet Peeves  What in the world are people eating ? I remember getting the penny jar out for 51 cents to go get hamburger for a 'helper' with noodles. Now 1.31 lb of Publix at a unit price of 5.49 was $7.19. Does this regime wanting us to eat bark and grass like North Korea?

   Balogreene  I don't do meat, but that is just because I don't like the taste. I laugh that I am a sausagetarian. Breakfast is eggs and bacon or sausage, with V-8. My doctors all recommend that for breakfast (as does Johns Hopkins ), it is low in carbs for the blood sugar. For lunch, I like salad, chopped veggies with less than a tablespoon of dressing, some croutons and cheese. For dinner I throw in the carbs (should probably do that at lunch ). I have something I made over the weekend-shepherd's pie, green chili stew, squash tagine, veggies and couscous, something like that.

People keep saying buying fresh is expensive, but because I buy little meat, it's not bad. I do have kielbasa and sauerkraut I'm dying to make, but I have too much in the freezer right now.

I know your husband travels. I have a deviled egg, that is just eggs, bacon, a little bit of mayonnaise, vinegar, dry mustard, and dried mixed onions for breakfast. You can also make "omelettes" in muffin tins. Eggs, milk, cheese, and whatever you want. Put them in the muffin tin and bake til done. I have a recipe, you put sausage in a muffin tin, add an egg (or scrambled ), and bake til done.

My lunch salads are whatever veggies I can get, red onion, green pepper, celery, tomato, carrots, cucumbers, whatever is in the store and not too expensive, chopped, mixed in a bowl, and refrigerated. Without lettuce, it lasts almost two weeks. I might add dressing when I chop it, usually, I add a touch of dressing before I go to work (I live at home and have a choice ). Then at work I top it with croutons and shredded cheese.

As for dinner, I make stuff on the weekend (usually two or three things ) and use the foodsaver. That way I have a choice in the freezer. And only have to cook once a month.

Does that help?

   Balogreene  It's dried minced onions.

   Balogreene  So, EC, the eggs I make in muffin tins, I wrap in Saran, or put in the foodsaver, and then just nuke when I'm ready for breakfast, great portable food.

   Escaped commieny posted on Veterans' Page & Militaria  I have been trying to post a You Tube video and had to delete, won't come over here.
Hometown Battlefield
This video has been on Youtube for almost a year now but this is the first time I have seen it. How this guy wrote this song in 10 minutes is beyond me. It seems the song had a lot of thought behind it. But no matter how he wrote it, this song was right on target. Men and women have suffered horrors of war for thousands of years. From Attila the Hun to the present day and it hasn't gotten any better. As long as people allow the likes Hitler, Stalin, Castro, and Mao to take over their lives, we are going to have wars.
I will keep trying, but get your tissues out, EC

PS I must admit it brought back some dark days of plodding through World Lit and World History! (OK--'plodding' might be a bit strong. )

We used to take the motorhome with our neighbors and their kids to Hershey Park, it was only about 6 hours away, now I have to hide M&M's, forget the Reese Cups or Brownies, they seem to evaporate. If I make this pie, it would have to be in an undisclosed location until done and I might get a bite.

   Balogreene  EC, a page back is my recipe for Miso Cod. You can use Tilapia, Sea Bass, Grouper, any other solid, semi-sweet white fish. Miso is inexpensive, and when mixed with broth (I use vegetable, most people use chicken ) and scallions, white pepper, and some vinegar (rice, white wine ) makes a great soothing soup. You can substitute white wine (Moscata ) for Sake. Anyhow, it is a wonderful, sweet fish. I'm dreaming of it again, going to make some more.

But, first I might just make DH's recipe, sounds good too. How does he make the scallops?

   Papasparky  Thanks EC, and all others who are keeping Jolly before the The Lord.

I email Jolly and his wife every other day or so just to help them remember they have friends everywhere.

I can't imagine what the chemo and radiation for his condition would do to your daily routines so I'm not alarmed about their temporary disappearance -- I'm sure "Mrs. Jolly" will check in when she is able -- Jolly thanked me and by extension, all of us, just before he started treatment.

I will post the good news here, as I receive it . . .

   Escaped commieny posted on Household Hints  Birdy and MeiDei were speaking of germs. I bought 2 handheld, fit in your purse, Pocket Purifiers for my Pulse TV flyer. It cleans any hard surfaces using the same germicidal ultraviolet UV-C tech found in hospitals to sterilize surgical instruments.

   Escaped commieny posted on Jokes  Best Joke on the boards is Harry, Dinghy, Harry claiming an exercise band sent him flying into cabinets that broke his bones. ROTFLMAO.
I had a Humana group for Silver Sneakers, OK, so we used less resistant bands, but I know plenty of guys that used the Gold Gym Power Training Extreme, Heavy Duty resistance band in between weight lifting for cross training. If it breaks from long use, it tears, it doesn't just let go and send you flying. What a moron, hope it was those guys that wanted him to eliminate Bundy, pay back is a zitch.

   Alice  Yes! Seems like a couple of times now DHarry has been 'lessoned' and claimed it was exercise equipment... The organizations that founded Las Vegas may be out of sight these days, but would not actually abandon such a lucrative city or state.

   Bettijo  Could it be Harry is too weak (in strength as well as character ) to use a "professional" resistant band and was using a super-size rubber band? I think rubber bands do "snap." Just asking...

Or, possibly, 6 years of protecting and defending Obama could have driven him to drink resulting in a fall like Hillary. Who knows?

   Escaped commieny posted on Main Page The Lobby  God Bless America - The Story

Frank Sinatra considered Kate Smith the best singer of her time, and said that when he and a million other guys first heard her sing "God Bless America" on the radio, they all pretended to have dust in their eyes as they wiped away a tear or two.
Here are the facts... The link at the bottom will take you to a video showing the very first public singing of "GOD BLESS AMERICA". But before you watch it, you should also know the story behind the first public showing of the song.
The time was 1940. America was still in a terrible economic depression.Hitler was taking over Europe and Americans were afraid we'd have to go to war. It was a time of hardship and worry for most Americans.This was the era just before TV, when radio shows were HUGE, and American families sat around their radios in the evenings, listening to their
favorite entertainers, and no entertainer of that era was bigger than Kate Smith.
Kate was also large; plus size, as we now say, and the popular phrase still used today is in deference to her, "It ain't over till the fat lady sings".Kate Smith might not have made it big in the age of TV, but with her voice coming over the radio, she was the biggest star of her time.
Kate was also patriotic. It hurt her to see Americans so depressed and afraid of what the next day would bring . She had hope for America , and faith in her fellow Americans. She wanted to do something to cheer them up, so she went to the famous American song-writer, Irving Berlin (who also wrote "White Christmas" ) and asked him to write a song that would make Americans feel good again about their country. When she described what she was looking for, he said he had just the song for her.
He went to his files and found a song that he had written, but never published, 22 years before - way back in 1917. He gave it to her and she worked on it with her studio orchestra. She and Irving Berlin were not sure how the song would be received by the public, but both agreed they would not take any profits from God Bless America . Any profits would go to the Boy Scouts of America. Over the years, the Boy Scouts have received millions of dollars in royalties from this song.
This video starts out with Kate Smith coming into the radio studio with the orchestra and an audience. She introduces the new song for the very first time, and starts singing. After the first couple verses, with her voice in the background still singing, scenes are shown from the 1940 movie, "You're In The Army Now." At the 4:20 mark of the video you see a young actor in the movie, sitting in an office, reading a paper; it's Ronald Reagan.

   Bettijo  Thanks! I had chills go up and down my spin as I watched this. It was all I could do to keep from crying. It breaks my heart; the patricians we had back them and the hatred of our country exhibited today. I sent it on to everybody I know.
