Paul Anka Concert – Becoming a Teenager for a Night

paul anka concertGeorge and I just got back from seeing a wonderful performance by Paul Anka. He was absolutely marvelous and the audience was so thrilled with his performance, they wouldn’t let him leave the stage after performing two hours straight.

His initial entry to the stage was through a side door into the theater and he went down the side aisle to the stage. I was sitting on the aisle and as he came closer to my seat I reached out my hand which he grabbed and gave me a strong handshake and a great big smile. Golly gee, I felt like a teenager all over again and my heart skipped a beat.

Potato and Pepper Frittata Meatless Recipe

italian frittataA very versatile dish my Mother made on meatless Fridays was a potato, pepper and mushroom frittata. It is delicious hot or at room temperature and leftovers can be reheated in the microwave. Mom would often use eggs in place of meat or poultry as she knew eggs were high in protein and had always been labeled “nature’s most perfectly balanced food”. In fact, eggs have been the standard which all protein foods are measured.

Freddie The Flat Leaver

freddie the flat leaverI wonder if any of my readers are familiar with the expression “Flat Leaver“. It was an expression that was commonly used during my youth and teenage years. The only other person I know, who remembers this expression is my husband, George.

I have used “flat leaver” in the presence of many of my family and young friends in regard to Freddie, our three year old Maltese, only to have to give an explanation of what those words mean. Even my nephew, Richard, was interested in finding the meaning and sent me a link fromĀ UrbanDictionary.com on the true meaning of “flat leaver”.

Italian Easter Bread Recipe

italian easter bread recipeA tradition in our home every Easter was to bake Easter bread. It is an easy recipe, but it is rather time-consuming. I use my Cuisinart food processor to mix and knead the dough, which made things a lot quicker and easier. This delicious sweet bread would be made into loaves, or bunny rabbits, individual little loaves,and even braided into baskets.

The true Italian Easter bread would have dyed eggs set in the braid. I found that when that method is used the dough sticks to the eggs after baking,making slicing difficult. However, when baked with dyed eggs it is very decorative and makes wonderful gifts for Easter.

Alternative Pain Management

For thirty years I have researched and read as much as I could about nutrition, supplements and integrative (preventive) medicine. I believe we need to know our body, not just how it looks, but how it works and when it is working correctly and when it’s off kilter. There is so much information out there on the Internet and in books that can be used to help you to take care of your health and to teach you how to talk to your doctor, learn about the tests that are used in today’s medical field and the alternative approach to good health. The website that is most used and I found very helpful is www.webmd.com.
