We Just wanna see you Shake that…
I have never been one for exercise or fad diets, counting calories not for me either.
So, I just started using a smaller plate and ya know it works. Since last year at my highest weight of 220; I am down too 195. This is the same I weighed in 1998.
When I graduated from high school in 1966 I weighed 150. I think I would look like a crack addict if I weighed that now.
I was raised on Fried and Creamed. The more dough and grease the better.
I bake now, and not pies.
On this day of 2012,I searched for my Power Animal
I found my White Horse
You are most fortunate to have the horse spirit within you, for she has many things to teach you and many blessings to share.
The horse will show you how to balance your caring nature and deep love for others with your equally deep need for freedom and independence.
There will be days when she shows you how to relax fully, first rubbing against your loved ones, then just standing in the shade of the tree and munching the apples as they fall. Abundance will be yours, as she teaches you that a peaceful and centered life provides what is needed, like apples falling from a tree on a perfect summer’s day.
And when you ask, she will take you for a ride, as you run like the wind, faster and faster, until finally, like Pegasus, she sprouts wings, soars into the air and allows your soul to fly free. She will lift you to the heavens and reveal to you there your own highest self.
And through it all, she will show you how to stay deeply centered in the moment. She will teach you to live without worry or regret, your heart free of blame. Breathe in her spirit and she will bring you fully into this moment and all that it contains, where you can balance beauty and duty, freedom and togetherness, all in perfect joy and harmony.
“My mama told me a story about me when I was small. She would make dozens and dozens of kinklings, a form of a donut that is popular in the area I am from.”
I received a package in the mail the other day. A box of Kinklings and King syrup from my relatives in Maryland. They have a KINKLING making party every Feb-March.
The temps here have been in the low 80’s for a few days so they were nice and warm when I opened my mailbox 🙂
I immediately made coffee and settled down for a snack.
The sticky King syrup ran down my chin and I just continued indulging over the sink.
They were so good.I have a few left,they do not last long in my kitchen.
Recipe for Kinklings
My Grandmother’s Recipe
1 cup sugar
4 lbs flour (16 cups)
1 qt. milk (scalded and cooled)
4 eggs, well beaten
8 tbsp shortening or lard
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg (optional)
2 cakes yeast
Soften yeast in water and add 1 tsp. Sugar to milk, stir. Stir in yeast. Cover and let rise in warm place till doubled. Stir in eggs, butter, remaining sugar, salt, nutmeg and enough flour so mixture can no longer be stirred with a spoon. Cover and let rise till double. Punch down dough and divide in 2 portions. On a floured board roll out to 1/2″ thickness, cut with doughnut cutter (or large glass), place on trays and let rise till doubled. Fry in deep fat until brown, turn to brown other side. Drain on paper towels. Makes about 4 dozen.

Beware of a new email scam.Usually comes into your yahoo account and asks you to change your bank,google and Facebook passwords.
Strange it doesn’t say to change your yahoo password because hey they already breached it.
It’s always a good idea to change your passwords to something more secure then say a four letter word.I did some research and came up with the same issue.
