  1. I used to cook turkey breasts from frozen state all the time in my crockpot. I just put them in, turned it on and walked away. I usually did it overnight, to be used in meals the next day.. There was always a lot of liquid in when it was done. I never had a gravy packet. I guess I would make the gravy, using the gravy packet and the liquid from the crock pot after the turkey was done. It makes a very moist turkey breast, but it is different flavor from roasted.
  2. Skipping Christmas by John Grisholm. I read it out loud during a family road trip at Christmas time. I could hardly read it! yes, it was made into a movie, Christmas with the was not good. Book was fantastic.
  3. Old thread, but I was searching on the Web for Meadow Fresh and this thread popped up. My family were MLM for it back in the early 80s. I remember that it was a whey based beverage, vanilla, chocolate and orange. It also had coconut oil in it. I remember practically being tossed out of a chiropractor office...they told us they wouldn’t feed it to their dogs. in light of the current nutrition trends, I would love to find the nutritional info on it. There appears some new interest by the original developer in putting it back on the market.
  4. You might a response if you state the city in your title.
  5. Thank you All! I have ordered four books from Amazon, that I think he will enjoy. I am also saving this list of authors for my hubby, who likes some of the same genre. Hubby also loves true life stories of survival and accomplishments, and I am always looking for ones he hasn't read.
  6. Looking for a gift for a son in law. They are going on a cruise in a few weeks, so books are necessary right? He does like authors Vince Flynn and Tom Clancy. thanks.

  8. I have been going to a weight loss clinic for the past two plus years. They have three options, surgery, very low calorie and healthy living 1500 calories. I chose the third option and have lost 95 pounds. Their program starts out with classes every week you are required to attend at a cost of 25.00 per week. They are led by nutritionist, excercise onysiologists and therapists. You see the therapist 2 times a month and the other two once a month. My clinic understands the missing piece in weight loss is headwork. Yes, they are licensed therapists that specialize in weight loss. There are 4 or 5 therapists in my clinic. When you complete the program you transition to weekly support groups which are free for life as long as you attend 12 per year. CBT is the basis of what they teach. Judy Beck has written several books on the topic. Her father invented CBT therapy. Beck Diet Solution , referred to as the pink book the Diet Trap, referred to as the blue book Look up Beck Diet Solution on Facebook. this is an article written by the therapist who leads my group.
  9. We did a tour of the engineering department of local college when my son was 11 or 12. He wanted to sign up that day a get started as he knew he would want to study all areas of engineering. His father is non degreed engineer and works in production facilities with responsibilities for maintenance support, mechanical support, new builds, utilities, environmental, CAD, etc, so it makes sense our son was interested in everything. When he graduated he no longer was sure of specific field except he loves computers. After a year of college he took a few years to goof off, work, drive a fancy car, start up his own computer repair business, get married and have a child. When he did end up back at school he excelled and graduated with a degree in computer engineering and a huge resume. He is doing very very well.
  10. My DH had the same thing happen. It’s the deodorant ! His shirts are nice and white since switching to Toms of Maine.
  11. My husband uses the toms of Maine, most of the time he’s just fine. He tries to,go,without on weekends to give his body a break, and we’ll, sometimes he is chopping wood and we’ll, yeah, don’t stand near him. I had had the same reaction Lexi did. Burning armpits is no fun. I gave up.
  12. I Mix PB2 into it. ( peanut butter powder) Fage brand is my current favorite.
  13. We don’t live remotely close to extended family. I asked myself these questions when These types of occasions came up, (grads and weddings)do we want to know about those cousins events in their life? Did we get announcements when they graduated? Someone has to keep communication open. Everyone can decide for the self whether or not to send a card or a gift.
  14. My oldest had one spotting episode at 10or 11 but then didn’t really begin her period for several more years.
  15. I often think these kind of questions should come with an age attached to them. yes, I pack his lunch. He doesn’t cook, and I don’t mow the lawn , if you know what I mean. And we are both good with that. I do not get up at 5:30 am to get it together. The coffee is on a timer, often he gets that ready, and the lunch is usually leftovers sitting in the fridge. Add some fruit, some yogurt, maybe some banana bread or biscotti and he’s good to go. My mom packed my dads lunch and I’m sure my Mil packed my Fil’s lunch. my kiddoes and their spouces are kind of all over the map with this. Some do, some don’t, some days they do, some days they don’t. Some husbands cook and some of the wives mow the lawn. Everyone needs to do what works for their family. If he dies before me, I’m getting a lawn service.
