Hi gang
Sue WTG one lb is great. I only lost .2 this week.But after nearly losing 8 lbs last week (7.8)I will take it.

I am determined to get this off this year and no fooling around. I am still hacking and coughing. Guess I'll end up going to Dr. just can't seem to shake it.It's been 2 weeks today

March 20th is the first day of Spring, so it won't be that much longer now . I am so looking forward to the fresh strawberries, peaches,cantaloupes, mangoes,watermelon, pomegranates this year!!! And oh yes, our homegrown tomatoes. We had them up until a little after Thanksgiving this year so very good

I bought some little cuties (oranges) yesterday and they are real good.For now, I buy sugar free canned fruit and draining it. I really like cottage cheese and peaches.

Well I hope your weather holds up and you can get out of those mountains and go for a mini vacation that would be really nice.

I used 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth instead of 2 cups broth and 2 cups water. I used some frozen cauliflower florets instead of the half head of cauliflower. I used 1/4 tsp of pepper since we aren't big on pepper. When it was finished cooking, I just used my potato masher to smash some of the potatoes to thicken it a little. It was so easy, and I will be making this often and passing the recipe on to friends. Yummy, especially on this cold rainy day.

I really like it. It is hard to only eat one cup though I am happy you enjoyed it.

And btw Welcome!
With the help from the Lord....
No food will satisfy my heart or fill the emptiness in my soul. Jesus Christ is "the real meat" and the "bread of life," and I am to feed on him.
