drying process. I got 32 slices from a medium size
I had one sweet potato in the fridge and followed the directions, thinking Marley would love these as a treat. No, she does not. So I'll be adding sweet potato to my dehydrated veggies I use to make soup.

The sun was shining through the clouds Saturday morning so I took the opportunity to sweep all the leaves and debris from the patio to put on the soil in the garden. It looked so neat and clean. The feeling of pride came over me as I stood back to witness the result of my efforts. An hour later, a strong wind and pouring rain slid in. My patio again needs cleaning. I guess that is the meaning of pride before the fall.
|This is quite a pile for the small space I have in my yard.|

over the winter.
The store visit was short as I only picked up tomato soup, bananas, and protein bars. I chose the bars that were on sale, but I won't be choosing that flavor again.
|I like the brand of protein bars, just prefer other flavors. The|
soup is yummy and holds four servings that are very filling.
As you know, I have a list of yoo toob videos I watch. This morning I watched a rather crude one that depicted the evils of processed foods. Although I tend to agree with the concept, a video needs to be encouraging to young families and presented in a way that gets them thinking, not feeling inadequate. There are lots of families in this country that can't afford to purchase all the best foods for their families. It would be ideal, but this is real life. These families try to do the best for their children, but can't always buy the best of foods. It's a balancing act, to say the least.
This is a comment made by a mother that I could feel the pain in her heart when she saw the video.

I don't often offer the name of my blog on other sites, but I felt like this mom belongs here with us. I hope she takes me up on my offer. Even more so, I hope the blog helps her.
