Week 25 Wednesday (7/2/14)

Recipe Review      

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Kale Citrus Salad
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         I think it’s about time to include a salad in the recipe choices. This salad is primarily kale. Did you know that kale is really great for you? It helps detox your body. It can also be good for you if you have high cholesterol.  The interesting part for me was the goat cheese. I am new to this and have enjoyed it during the two times I have used it.  Enjoy!

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         On June 25th I had a colonoscopy. After age 50, everyone should have one to protect and preserve your health. This was my second one and I am so glad that I did so. I am so grateful that my colonoscopy came out great. Most people I have talked to complained about the prep for the procedure. They have come miles in the last three years. You get to mix the powder with Gatorade instead of the vile tasting drink. This procedure is no big deal, but it can change your life.  Okay, all of you over 50 – make that call today!

Memory Musings

         One of my favorite people in the world is Laura Stopka, Kathy’s sister. I have always called her Lola, because it just seems to fit her, and I am big on nicknames. When I lived in Florida, I used to spend a lot of time with Kathy’s sisters, Laura (Lola), Mary (Mert), and Suzanne (SuSu). Laura gave me the nickname of Ethel Fitzgerald Ramstein. To this day she will occasionally called me Ethel.
         When I was in my first year teaching, I told my class that I had an evil twin named Ethel Fitzgerald Ramstein. The kids believed me when I said we were identical twins. I even proved my claim with a letter that I received from Laura, mailed to Ethel.  My kids questioned it, but I think I had a few of them fooled. One day I came in and acted angry and one of them asked me if I was Ethel. I replied that I was and that I was filling in for my sister for the first hour of the day because she was at the dentist. While they were in P.E., I changed my clothes and reappeared as myself.  We discussed the differences in my two identities, and then I “fessed up” and told them the truth. We all had a great laugh.  Sometimes school can be fun!
