I can’t describe to you all how much your thoughts, prayers, and comments touched the hearts of my sister, my family, and me.
I’m so happy to report that Amy is smiling big from the hospital recovery room.
Why is she smiling so big, do you ask (other than all those pain meds ;))
Amy is CANCER FREE!
We are all so thankful, relieved, and excited. One more cancer free family member gives us all so much happiness and a huge sigh of relief.
I will be heading to Northern Virginia to help Amy recuperate so my parents can go to Ohio to be with my dad’s family for my grandpa’s funeral. I’ve been really antsy sitting her in VB all by myself not being able to help anyone, so I’m anxious to get there and help my sister.
Although somebody (cough..Mike) had me really craving sushi last night, I was intent on using up some of my veggies I needed to get rid of before going out of town last night. SO… I decided to put my new little garlic chopper to work!
Wait till you see. This sucker’s is a genius.
Abby showed me this little guy during my visit to Salisbury. This thing easily and quickly minces garlic without mess and without making your hands smell like garlic for 2397 days.
Not that that’s a bad thing…
Sidenote: I may have made a little booboo and purchased ELEPHANT garlic. Uh, what’s the difference, besides it being huge and not smelling as great as regular garlic?
Et voila. You can make [gross looking, but] delicious pasta sauces without making a mess of your hands.
Sorry I’m not sorry I don’t care enough to make a picture of my pasta sauce look more appetizing.
To make this delicious low-fat cheesy tofu cream sauce:
-3/4 cup plain greek yogurt (I used my love, Chobani)
-3 medium mushrooms, sliced
-1/4 cup tofu, cut into blocks
-1 triangle Laughing Cow Light, Garlic & Herb flavored
-a pinch of light goat cheese
-1 clove garlic, minced
-a few shakes of Garlic & Herb seasoning
All added to this stuff:
Try not to trip over yourself as you sprint to Target to pick up this baby. You won’t regret it.
In other news, Chloe is doing beautifully at boot camp. Our breeder reported that she is one one of the smartest dogs he has ever trained. She is doing well with heeling and sitting, and he’s getting ready to teach her to ignore distractions.
The tornados we had last week touched down in the town she’s in, but we got a phone call saying Chloebear was safely inside. Phew!
I miss my baby. 😦
Did you notice? I’m now self-hosted!
I finally gave in and got my own domain. Check the top of your browser.. see where it says lifeofblyss.com? Yeeeeah.
Now, you expert WordPress friends, please tell me how I can now add the plug-ins I want to use so badly (i.e., comment plug-ins). I need your help and I’m sick of trying to Google it.
Next time I post, it’ll be from NoVA alongside my rockstar sister. 😀
