Ok...Ok...I've Removed The Comment Verificaton...

After doing more reading and taking note of the comments on my blog, I have decided to do away with the comment verification for now.  After making some adjustments I will see how it goes. 

I have join a new site and from time to time will re-post some of the recipes I come across that I think all of you would enjoy.  After having been diagnosed as a diabetic I have joined several sites to help me manage my diabetes, one of them is the American Diabetic Association.  The following recipe is from one of their new cookbooks and it looks scrumptious.

Baked Turkey Meatballs
Baked Turkey Meatballs

Recipe from The Comfort Food Cookbook by Robyn Webb
A tip from the author: You can serve these meatballs with whole grain pasta or brown rice and a side of sautéed broccoli or carrots.
Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour

1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 pound lean ground turkey
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup grated onions
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon parsley (finely chopped)
1/4 teaspoon ancho chile powder
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Use olive oil to lightly oil an 8x8-inch square baking dish.

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all of the remaining ingredients, except for the Parmesan cheese.

To form the meatballs, pull a handful (about 1/2 cup) of the turkey mixture and toss back and forth in your hands to form a ball. The ball should form rather easily.

Once the meatballs are formed, place them in the baking dish.

Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes.

Remove meatballs from the oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Serves 6; Serving Size = 2 meatballs

I love to try new recipes, now that I am more CARB aware and am limited in the amout of carbohydrates I can have,  I find it difficult at times to try new things, that I would really like to fix, when the recipe does not include the nutritional information .  I figure there are other RVers out there who are like me, so from now on I will include the nutritional information when posting a recipe. 

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Let us remember those who have gone before us to to protect our country and keep us from harm.

If you are traveling this weekend be safe and know you are loved and blessed beyond measure . 

Happy trails...


Where Did All My Stuff Go??????

When I opened my blog yesterday I noticed that all the information I had on the right hand side of my page had disappeared.  I figured that it was a glitch of some sort, but when I opened it this morning and checked all my settings and everything was in its place on the dashboard, I became concerned.  This has happened before, a long, long time ago.  It seemed to correct itself after awhile back then.  I wish it would do the same now as it's a real pain in the hiney derriere.   

I see everything is there on the dashboard, but just not showing up on the blog page. B U M M E R!!!!  I hate it when that happens. 

Hopefully...maybe it will show back up and I can be happy once more

Happy trails...


I Really Hate To Do This...

Every day when I go in to check my blog I check the comments page to see if anyone has left me a message, I'm so thrilled when someone does. As of late I have been getting quite a bit of action from various sources and most of that action has been spam from anonymous. 

Not all people are anonymous. There have been times when I have had to make myself anonymous so I could post a comment on someones blog.

So to prove that you are not a spammer or robot I have put in place the little box that makes you have to type in the two words to leave a comment.  I really, really did not want to do that but at the moment it's done. 

For those who read my blog, do you mind having to type in the two words  What do you do on your blog? Do you ignore it and continue without the two word verification or what?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Happy trails...
