Well, good morning, everyone!  It is nice to back in my regular posting routine and it is also great to be delivering some good news.  Last Monday, my MIL, who is such an awesome lady, had triple bypass surgery to correct 3 very serious blockages.  We are so blessed because all three blockages are fixed and she is home resting and recuperating.  Yay!!!  Praise God!

Since she is now on dietary restrictions and I am helping out in the kitchen, it is time for me to learn to do more low sodium and heart healthy cooking.  I don’t think my usual meals are too bad, but I know I can do better.  C & I have been what I like to call “stress eating” the last few weeks so it is time to clean up the old diet a little.  Don’t expect to see major changes here…just a few tweaks to old favorites.  I have ordered a few salt-free spice blends from Penzey’s Spices to try and I will let you know how they are.  Besides avoiding extra salt, it is back to breakfast smoothies for me instead of stopping for a ham biscuit and Coke at Dairy Queen.  Hopefully we will all be a little healthier for it.
