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!!!

Some of you knew that I have been trying to do Low carb eating along with high protein. Usually when I start something after about two weeks I get bored and resort back to my old habits. But this time I have been sticking to it. It definately is not easy but I have had great support from my husband. He eats the same thing I have been having. This style of eating is not for everyone, but so far I have managed.

I have said all of that to say this. Last night after consulting with my doctor, she informed me that with blood sugars ranging from 88 to 93, that I did not need to take my INSULIN. WOW, that is the first time I have not had to take insulin in almost 5 years. All because I started making healthier choices in the foods I eat. I am loving the results, she said she will continue to monitor me, and hopefully if I continue, I just may be able to get off of it for good. But for now we will check it on a daily basis. I AM OVER THE MOON EXCITED.

I just had to share this great news with you.

Hello, again!

Hi, everyone! it's been so long since I've been to the just a pinch site. Hope some of my ol' buddies are still around! Not sure who's still on here. I got a notification yesterday that my margarita pie was a featured recipe, so I came on to check it out, and of course, ended up on here for an hour, checking out all the new changes, etcetera. Wow! Navigating the site is quite different than it was the last time I was here.

Hope everyone is well! Bea, are you still here? Hope to hear from some of you. Life's been crazy the last year. Severe illness in my family on many different fronts, among other things. I've missed you all!

Has anybody here seen my old friend Abraham?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
You know, I just looked around and he's gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked around and he's gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked 'round and he's gone.

Didn't you love the things that they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
And we'll be free
Some day soon, and it's a-gonna be one day ...

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill,
With Abraham, Martin and John.

i ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE A WONDERFUL MEAL FOR MY HUSBAND ON FATHER'S DAY.Since both of our parents are gone on both sides. He never had that before, and since the 21 years that we have been a part of each others lives, I have always made a big effort especially on holidays, birthdays and special occasions just to let him know how special he really is. He claims it doesn't matter, but I know that it does, so I try to do what I can withing my limited abilities to let him know that he is still as special today as he was when we first started dating.

I always make a personalized card, and wrap gifts individually to seem like it is more than they really are, just to see the look on his face in wonderment of what is inside and underneath the wrapping paper, when I bring them into the room. Most of you know how much he loves great food, so I make many of his favorite food items on his special day as well.

This Father's Day I plan to make Grilled Herb Rubbed Rib Eye Steaks with Garlic Herb Butter, Baked Twice and Just as Nice Potatoes, Reduced Fat Stuffed Tomato Cups with Spinach & Feta, Black Truffle Oil Roasted Asparagus, Cukes N Sour Cream w/Sweet Red Peppers & Onions, Garlic & Herb Pull Apart Bubble Bread, & Peanutty Peanut Butter Cheesecake.

The only bad thing is my daughter won't be here until a few days later if at all. But he always loves it when ever she does come. One year we cooked his dinner together and it was so much fun. Cooking is fun for me, especially when I am preparing it for my family. I know many people enjoy going out and there is nothing wrong with that, but I know that my husband REALLY LOVES IT WHEN I prepare the meal and menu myself, plus I love doing it. What are you doing this Father's Day and what is on your menu?
