Well, hello there!

Well, at least it's only been 4-1/2 months since my last post and I have yet to get any food posts up lol.  It seems I wasted a whole year avoiding covid only to get it IN MY OWN HOUSE from my CHILD, AND on the one year anniversary of his last day of in-school instruction!  Oh the irony!  I'm really glad I didnt buy 500 rolls of toilet paper or gallons of bleach or 764 cans of Lysol.  I would REALLY be kicking myself!  
And to top it all off, I didn't even get any of the weird symptoms of Covid. I did get the coughing, fever and loss of appetite and then my mostly healthy - albeit overweight- body decided: "Let's kick it up a notch--Covid Pneumonia sounds AWESOME!"  That awarded me an 8-day hospital stay. Everyone else gets a few weird symptoms, quarantines in their bedroom and is fine in 7-14 days. NOT ME!  I don't even get colds for crying out loud!  Needless to say it was quite scary for me being the only othet time I was in the hospital was to have my child 18-1/2 years ago and that was a breeze compared to this. 
So, it's now 35 days since my first symptoms and I still have a slight cough, get tired easily and still no  appetite for a lot of foods along with not being able to eat much so I'd say I'm 98% and I'll probably be there for a while.   My 18 y/o son recovered in less than 10 days. Lucky stiff! 

While I was in the hospital I decided to once and for all lose this weight.  (Maybe not once and for all, we all know how it usually goes lol). I have no appetite for many foods and those foods are all the ones we arent supposed to eat: heavy, greesy, carb laden foods: all the foods I love, too!  (But I can still
Eat half a bag of chips or cheese doodles--idky!) 
So I don’t know if that's my mind being in a "lose weight" frame of mind or it's from covid.  🤷🏻‍♀️. (Insert shrugging emoji here). 
But I wont look a gift horse in the mouth.  I'll use it to my advantage. I lost 10-12 lbs while I was sick and i've gained 4 back but that's also becauase I'm eating more than I was when sick. (We wont even talk about what the hospital thinks is healthy). 

I'll start with what I had tonight then I'll put a few other posta of things I've made in the past few weeks.  I'll start a new post for tonight's dinner.  
CIAO!! (I'm not Italian, I just like the word lol).

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Can you believe it's 2020?  I remember in 1982 thinking how 2000 seemed light years away and I blinked my eyes and it's now 20 years ago.  I hope everyone had a happy, safe New Year's celebration and has recovered well.  :-P 

So I guess it's time I started this blog, huh?   I've been trying to get Adsense set up on it but I'm having problems doing that so I'll just forget that for now.  It might not be showing up because I have nothing on here. Guess I'll find out soon enough.   If anyone knows how to get that working PLEASE email me at or comment on this post. 

Until  next time!

Getting there!

I have finally gotten the domain forwarding fixed so now when you go to it will come here and not a blank page.  The last rep asked for my own IP address and when I accessed the blog while I was at home it would go to ... my own IP address!   At least that's fixed now.  Next is to transfer the blog from the wrongly (is that a word?) spelled email to the correctly spelled email.  I will do that tomorrow and then I can actually start publishing all my yummy inexpensive recipes and tips for being a Frugal Foodie!  💜
