Welcome to 2013, Hope it has started off for all of you well and continues to be a Healthy, Happy & Wealthy Year. Hard to believe that I have not posted since 11/17/12, I can't really say the Holidays were my primary reason for being such a slug in posting, more a combination of battling a long term sinus infection, being treated with a Steroid Med and then an Antibiotic, food poisoning from an outing at a Restaurant I prefer never to go to again, and having lots of medical tests done.
I received more gift cards this year then I expected so I have been able to go to several different stores for foods that I would normally not ever be able to buy. I still have some money left on two gift cards to get food at. On the plus side I did not have to go to the Food Bank for food in December and I will not have to go for the month of January for food. I'll have to see how the next few months shape up for me financially and whether I need to go again or not. I do have twenty photos to post of recipes to add here. Do to being sick I did not create as many new recipes as I would have during this same time period previously. I also had some meals out over the holidays which provided left overs and no cooking for me.
For January I have been picking up lots of Free Meals from Restaurants who have email, loyalty and rewards programs that I belong too due to my upcoming 50th Birthday 1/22/2013. These Restautants send out coupons for Free Meals, Desert, Appetizers, or Add The Meals to a Reward Card for you to use during your Birth Month. I also have been taking advantage of lots of opportunities to receive free samples through Facebook and get coupons for Free Products for Organic & Natural Vendors as well.
Now back to the purpose of showing you recipes and PICs of them.
