Healthy living: Dealing With Heel Pain

Dealing with Heel Pain. I have heal pain. When it is acting up it keeps me from my walking exercises. It has forced me to leave my 2nd job at Advanced Auto Parts. If you have experienced it you know what I am talking about. When you get up from a resting position it hurts. And getting up during the night or in the morning can be excruciating. This is a condition called “Plantar Fasciitis” In my case once I found a treatment it was easy and immediate relief from the pain.

Gardening Tips: Catching Rain Water

Every year the spring rains come and turn everyone’s yards into muddy messes. Everyone curses the spring rains for the mess they create. I look at them like a shower after a long hard day. Renewed life, the clean smell, the songs of the birds and the twitter of the tree frogs after a spring rain are enough of a comparison to how I feel after a shower to be dismissed. Our grandparents looked at the spring rains as a chance to fill the ponds recharge the wells and top off the cisterns.

The Frugal Secret!

Nanny didn’t waste money but she wasn’t afraid to spend it either. She would spend money on big hams, or that huge turkey. She knew The Frugal Secret!  Nanny was born during the years leading to the great depression. She had seen her fair share of hard times. It showed in how she cooked. She was an old time cook. The classic home maker that can walk into a bare kitchen and perform some kind of grandmother Voodoo that created a dinner from empty refrigerator and bare pantry shelves

SoFrit Chicken Gizzards & Harts in Tomato Pepper sauce

Have I got a treat of a recipe for your crock pot today. Slow cooker Sofrit “Chicken Gizzards & Harts In a Tomato Pepper Sauce”. I went to the Google’s to see what the Italian translation for Chicken Gizzards was and found out that my conglomeration was a recipe. I had never heard of SoFrit. Oh by the way, the Italian translation for chicken gizzards is “Ventriglio Di Pollo”. Olives-N-Okra talk about Sofrit, or chicken gizzards & hearts in hot sauce being and old Italian dish common in Rhode Island. My ingredients are so close that I am calling my dish SoFrit. Instead of Ventriglio Di Pollo or Italian Chicken Gizzards.

Can you Cook over and open fire

Can You Cook over and open fire

I have heard it so many times “Ill Build and fire and cook dinner” Have you ever cooked over and open fire? I would guess that the consistency and simplicity of heat control of your modern Gas or Electric Stove has provide you with a false sense of confidence. I bet that if you asked 100 people on the street have you ever cooked on an open fire.  95 or better would say no. If you asked the Same 100 people do you think you can cook your dinner on an open fire 100 of them would say yes. To be honest I would bet that most of them would be able to eat something. But there is and art to cooking over an open fire. You can’t just turn the heat up and down with the flip of a knob. True campfire cooks know that you have to maintain and tend the fire, bank the coals know when it is cool enough so you can cook. That is right you just can’t build a roaring fire and stick your pan of hamburgers over the flames. You will have burnt outside and raw insides and ruined food and hungry bellies. Continue reading

Pasta Fagioli Leftover Beans Made Awsome

Pasta Fizool Beans And Pasta

Pasta Fagioli Leftover Beans Made Awsome

I love recipes that let me take common foods and make wonderful dinners from them. It is even better if I can make them from my food storage and use leftovers Man talk about a bonus Times Ten in my book. I was raised on leftovers. Every day I had leftovers at some point, leftover cornbread and milk for breakfast, leftover Fried taters with my eggs for breakfast. One of my favorite leftover meals is Fried cornbread OMG!!!! My nanny served me that several times and when I finely asked where she learned it she couldn’t remember. In 1987 she had several strokes that left her memory somewhat vague.  If you want to know how to make fried cornbread let me know I will share the recipe. So I guess I am somewhat of a specialist when it comes to leftovers. Especially since I still cook for the locust horde that I used to feed “I love you Robbie and Gerald” Jason eats like a bird. One of the hardest things to unlearn is how to cook smaller portions or meals. Now that it is just me and Jason sometimes I cook way to much most of the time. We have lots of leftovers. Several years ago I heard Dom DeLuise speak of Pasta Fagioli. He explained that it was beans with pasta. Continue reading

I’m A Fat Man, I Eat Because I’m Unhappy, I’m Unhappy Because I Eat

Fat Burger

I Eat Because I’m Unhappy, I’m Unhappy Because I Eat

I’m Fat Yes I lost 102 pounds in the course of a year. I used the paleo Diet and exercise I walked about every day. Some days I missed but I bet I averaged 5 days of walking a week over that year. The reason I am saying that I am fat is because I am I still weigh 365 pounds I have put back on 40 pounds from my lowest weight of 328 pounds. I’m ok with putting on part of the weight I lost. Why you ask well it is normal for people to put weight back on for the winter months. And even then I have not been as strictly following my paleo diet as I was. Because of the extra job I took at advanced auto. And the weather I haven’t been walking. So I have put back on 40 pounds Big deal now that the weather is changing and I have Quit my second job I can now get myself back on the Paleo lifestyle and get back to walking and working in my garden this year. Oh how much I am looking forward to my garden. I can’t wait to start building my raised Beds and filling them with soil. Planting the seeds to vegetable success. Continue reading

Plant the Seeds For Spring

Plant the Seeds For Spring

Went to the Dollar General Sunday after posting up the Podcast. They have the garden seeds out. In the past I always wondered why they put the seeds out so early in the year. I mean it is nasty the snow is still on and frozen so hard I can walk on it without sinking much. I am not a little man. Well as I get older I relished that garden season sneaks up on you.  One day you’re scraping the Ice from your windshield and the next you’re enjoying the sunshine. And warm breeze of spring and it’s too late to plant the seeds leftover in the seed rack at the local mega mart. But if you take your time and pick your seeds when you see the racks start coming out in late February early March you will have time to plan and plant your seed starts and get off to a good early start.
