This is a group where we can sit back and enjoy chatting with each other rather than on the recipes. Hopefully in return this will free up some of the recipe comment sections of unwanted chatter.

Thanks and have fun!!!

busy moving day

My grandson and his wife have been living with my husband and me since he came back home from Afghanistan in December. They got a townhouse about 30 minutes from us so we will be moving them today. I will miss them a lot but I am glad to get back to just the 2 of us, as much as we love them and would do anything for them sometimes a house just isn't big enough for 2 families. They haven't even been married for 2 years he was deployed just a few weeks after the wedding and was gone for a year so now they will have the time they need to be together.

RIP, Toni T

I just found out that one of my favorite fellow JAP members, Toni T, has passed away. She and I had many wonderful conversations and I am truly going to miss her. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of her family and friends. I am heartbroken.

New Group: Healthy Eating Plate Ideas

By Heidi Hoerman

First, an apology to those of you who are seeing this in several groups.

“Healthy Eating Plate Ideas” is a place for us to share ideas, pictures of meals, questions, etc., to help us plan healthier meals for ourselves and our families without giving up flavor or jumping on the latest diet bandwagon. None of us is an expert but together we can build better menus!

The “Nutritionsource” website from Harvard’s School of Public Health tries to give up-to-date information about healthy eating in a clear format. Their “Healthy Eating Plate” is a graphic framework for a healthy diet.

In its simplest form, a healthy plate is half vegetables and fruits, one-quarter whole grains, and one-quarter lean protein. The “Healthy Eating Plate” graphic gives more details about healthy eating and the “Nutritionsource” website provides expert and constantly updated explanations.

Found an Old Recipe!

Ironically, the biscuits my daughter had been making for us were actually my late mother's recipe. I had no idea I had the recipe but our daughter walked over to the recipe box and showed me. It's very easy & only 6 ingredients.

We got back from our camping trip with the kids and grandkids had a wonderful time just ended to soon. We got everything put back where it goes. Now time to work on the birthday party we are having Friday for my husband's 60th birthday. We are having friends and family over so I have a lot of work to do cleaning and cooking. We will be eating outside on the deck, I am just so happy we got our outside bathroom completed and we also have a building beside the deck with a full kitchen so there will be no reason for anyone going inside the house. I am setting up a taco bar and making desserts, tea and koolaid, going to be a fun time.
