A few goals for 2020
I belong to the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network, but you might not know it. I haven’t posted about my life with MS for quite a while.
I tried the Stouffer’s Roasted Tuscan Style Chicken meal kit a few weeks ago. I was pleased with its easy preparation and good taste. This week I tried another one from Stouffer’s — Braised Pork. The meal’s four components (pork, potatoes, broccoli, and sauce) came frozen and packed in plastic. Step 1: Thaw sauce in […]
People have been raving about the modern day pressure cooker/multi-cooker. I jumped onto bandwagon and got one for Christmas. This is the cooker with the brand name Instant Pot. Recipes My Instant Pot came with a cookbook, but all of the recipes require a lot of ingredients. I searched the internet for Instant Pot recipes […]
I’ve been intrigued by the meal kit services that cropped up a few years ago. I want to try them, but I’m a little scared for some reason. Also, they’re not cheap. When I saw this Stouffer’s family meal kit in Kroger’s frozen food section, I decided it would be worth a try. The box […]
I’ve got vegetables lined up for this week. I roasted frozen broccoli and a medley of broccoli, green beans, carrots, yellow peppers, wax beans & red peppers (frozen) from Sam’s Club.

We bought a 6-pack of Amy’s canned soups at Sam’s Club a while back because I was going to start eating more soup. It seems that on the days I remembered we had the soup, I wasn’t in the mood for it. Yesterday I had the thought that I could use one of the soups […]
After trying for years to convince my husband that we needed a side-by-side refrigerator, we got one! It arrived yesterday and just fits where the old one was. If it were any wider, we would have had to send it back. I believe this fridge will change my life. Does that sound like an exaggeration? […]
I worked a fair amount of hours last week. I finished a blog post about personal digital archiving and started one on digital painting. I go to work with the mindset that I am a writer. Then I sit down and write. The topics I write about require some research, and I feel a little […]
I talked a big game when I was in the hospital about cooking health meals for myself. So far, I have not done this. I have been eating good things, but I’m relying mostly on frozen vegetables that are already seasoned. The current excuse I’m using is that I’m taking a class and keeping up […]
