Food Shelf

This morning, I volunteered at the local food shelf.  What was good about today was that I got to give away Bibles and pray. One of the ladies I prayed for cried.  Another  lady wanted to hug me. People need more than a box of groceries.

Immune Booster

One of my favorite herbal teas that is said to boost the immune system contains Echinacea tops and roots, Nettles, and Peppermint. I don’t know about the immune claim, but I do know the tea is good. I add 1 teaspoon of honey to my tea, prop my feet up  and relax.  All good!

Example in point, we served our company a leg of lamb roast.  There were a few leftovers and they entered my soup pot first.  I added little bits of stuff that I found in the refrigerator. These little bits of leftover foods included garlic, onions, celery, […]
