Be My Valentine!

Paul is usually the breakfast guy at our house, but one day a year I get up early like 6:00 AM (for me this is, 0-dark-thirty), and put on an amazing breakfast for my family.  This year I used a way cute homespun red and white table cloth.  I always use our special china as opposed to plastic lunch or paper plates.  I put juice in a pitcher as opposed to leaving it in the carton.  I put a little token gift with a small box of chocolates at each place setting, and top it off with heart-shaped waffles.  This year I found a cute little valentine dish at Target and put waffle toppings in it.  Mixed berries, pecans, and chocolate shavings.  And don't forget the Ready Whip.  My family reminds me every year this is one of their favorite memories growing up.   Yep, once again Mom was a hit for Valentines!  The only thing I regret is not taking a picture.  It would have been a very impressive picture to add here, oh well, there's always next year! °Ü°

Kaytlyn fix

We decided since we really didn't have much to do yesterday, okay we have a lot to do, we just wanted to continue to procrastinate our list of things to do a little bit longer, after all nothing is more important than spending time with family, especially if it's with one that bring us as many smiles as this one does.  So we drove to Safford (2 hours north/east of Sierra Vista) just to spend the day with our sooo stinkin' cute granddaughter!  It was a bonus to see Ashley and Joe, we really just need our Kaytlyn fix!   Anyway it was a great day and well worth the drive!

Going Bananas!

Bananas give an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. It can also help overcome or prevent a number of illnesses, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

Depression: Bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anemia: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure: This fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it the perfect to beat blood pressure.

Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham Middle school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch to boost their brain power. The potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, if you suffer from heartburn, eat a banana for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Temperature control: Many cultures see bananas as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical & emotional temperature of expectant moms.

Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance.

Strokes: Eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

Warts: If you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

So, when you compare a banana to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around. So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase from an apple a day to a banana a day!
