Kool Aid Time

 Well, I suppose I am getting better. For a while, I wondered how long it would take. Bronchitis is not fun at all. In the meantime, I did something to my right knee and had to use a cane for a couple of days. As I limped around, that made my left knee hurt.  So, now I am back to just right knee hurting. 

Saturday, we drove to get the mail and do other stuff. That makes my feet swell. We ate lunch at the lake. It is not good for us, but I have mitigated some of the damage from fast food (Hardee's) and soon we will not be buying burgers! 

Last time I went to the Farmer's market there, if you remember I came home with two dozen fresh, unwashed eggs. And, a few days before that I received free eggs from the Pig. I am using them. And, I bought another dozen today. That makes five dozen eggs. There are only three eggs on one carton on the table and about four in the refrigerator. In addition, there is a fully dozen in the refrigerator and two dozen on the table. I will use them! 

On Friday I scrambled nine eggs. I ate one-third on Friday and one-third this morning.  The last third will be eaten on Sunday. I drink it with a glass of milk. This is much better than cereal or banana and milk. Fewer carbs and I stay full longer, so less calories consumed. I really want to scramble a dozen eggs at a time and refrigerate them, but the pan won't hold many more than nine. I love scrambled eggs, but they are too much trouble to cook every day with my back hurting the way it does. I much prefer scrambled eggs to a Hardee's sausage biscuit. 

Tommy got up and ate a piece of bread with a piece of precooked sausage. He did not complain or wish he had a fast food sausage biscuit! Good for him! 

This week, The Pig had a free box of Success Boil-in-Bag precooked white rice. We never eat white rice, but since this is in a bag and so easy, I can boil one and freeze most of it. They (whoever "they" are) that eating white rice is like eating sugar. Well, I had rather have my sugar in brownies than rice. lol

The chicken I cooked Saturday night, tonight, has been in the refrigerator since early week or weekend. It finally thawed and I finally cooked it in the oven. It was $.99/lb. with skin and bones. Today, I found bscb for $1.99 at the same store where I got the bone and skin chicken. lol The best price for bscb is $1.99 lately. 

I figure it is Kool Aid time, so I will make it with Swerve. Hopefully, it will be delicious. I love Kool Aid. Do you like Kool Aid?

  1. Lord love us! I used to love Kool-aid. I haven't had any in ages.
    I remember having precise rules towards certain flavors; the only one I can recall was lime went with popcorn for christmas specials .

    1. Urspo,
      I suppose it has been five years or more since I had any. I only drink red flavors or grape. I think it is funny you had Kool Aid rules. No lime for me.

  2. My mom used to make popsicles from Jello and Kool aid. They were so good. I haven't had either in years.

  4. I loved Kool Aid as a kid. As an adult, I can't recall the last time I had any, and really don't want it at all.
