Woman Astronaut Sets Record

No one really ever pays much attention to female astronauts, as if they’re just some kind of extra cabin crew sent along to provide the coffee and snacks. This BBC article is well worth reading and will introduce you to a very special astronaut.

Thanksgiving for Two

It always takes lot of extra thought to make my holiday meal because I eat high fiber, low carb, low sugar foods and my husband likes just the opposite.

I work through each item to find a compromise and luckily, I’ve been able to change my husband over to healthier options through the years. As an example : the traditional green bean casserole is something I’d only use to mortar Adobe bricks with. It starts out innocently enough with green beans but then quickly goes downhill as you add condensed cream of mushroom soup, French fried onions etc. It ends up being very high in sodium, little fiber and not much nutrition.

Instead, I serve up steamed French cut green beans with a little whipped butter and sliced almonds. It’s also much easier ! Buy bags of frozen pre-cut beans, raw or roasted almonds and Land o Lakes whipped butter and you’re all set.

As I go through my preparation tonight I’ll put a post together with everything I get for this meal. It’s all centered around my lack of energy and food prep & cooking that won’t get me overheated or frustrated. Stay tuned for what I hope will be some helpful ideas.

And, please post your ideas to me here too. I’m always keen to learn new tricks !

Burger King “Impossible Burger Jr”- a poor choice

(My view as a vegetarian)

I couldn’t help myself. Today, Burger King proudly announced their Impossible Burger Jr. in an attempt to grab the kid’s attention. Knowing full well that the youth have been taught that almost every food is bad for the environment in one way or another, BK expects to have a rabid audience for their product.

Personally, I just can’t imagine why you’d accept a “plant based” food at 650 calories… That’s for the regular size. The kid’s new Burger Jr. Is high calorie for a kid and you’ll probably have way too many calories for one kid meal if you add fries and a sugar based drink… And don’t forget a shake for dessert.

It’s Godzilla’s 65th Birthday !

Sixty-five years ago today, Toho Studios introduced the world to the giant lizard GODZILLA, which premiered in Japan on Nov. 3, 1954.

Make plenty of popcorn, grab your stuffed Mothra, turn out the lights and binge watch with me into the wee hours.
