I guess I am the first to respond.
I'm going to take Mom out for shopping and lunch on Saturday, (the usual). If the weather is nice on Sunday, I'm going to go fishing with the hubby. Just to get outside and enjoy some fresh air. Hope you are feeling well and enjoy your weekend.
Take care mi amigo!
Love you,
Linda and Mom

It's Thorstens week without chemo so he is fit enough for some action. We will visit the concert of Ina Müller (German singer and entertainer) this evening and enjoy the benefits of the DHL VIP Box (got invited by my boss ;-) )

Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be really fine, so we will go out and the spring.

A really pleasant weekend to everybody!

my latest naturopath wants me to go back to my ancestral foods, now this makes some sense, as i am of dutch heritage i thought i would ask you. all i know is herrings and potatoe and dutch pancakes. the pancakes are off the list. i expect the dutch would have had lots of free range eggs and fish as well.

enjoy your bike ride.

hugs,
pete

Well, you are right about potatoes. Most nights we eat some kind of potatoes. The 'stampots' mashed with kale or endive or carrots (hutspot...my favorite!).

And fish. The old favs with fish are herring and mackerel and salmon, and flat fishes like sole. The 'Omega-3 rich fish', in other words. (also eel, but that is mainly smoked).

Vegetables are simple. Kale (boerenkool), lof (Brussels endive), regular endive (used in stamppot-a lettuce-like green) LOTS of the 'green leafies', in other words. Brussels endive, at least in America, is very expensive, but traditionally it's baked with a cream sauce, ham and cheese, where I eat it raw in a salad, mixed with chopped apples, with a light vinegar and ginger syrup dressing.

Ewrtensoup, or splitpea soup, with lots of vegetables including carrots, celery root, and onion, traditionally made with some kind of sausage (I use chicken sausage) and served very thick with coarse brown bread (roggebrood...or a dark rye or pumpernickle). The only thing I have trouble with with this soup is that because it is a legume-based soup, the fiber is alot, and I get gas (sorry to be blunt...but for a CRC warrior, it can be important!).

If you need, I can send you recipes....I have some wonderful ones from my beau's family. He needs to watch his sugar, so I even have some good cake recipes, as well.

Warme knuffels, Kathi

i will try these this week.
some of my favourites are listed, is that a co-incidence or is the ancestral diet something to discuss in a diet post. i'll let that go through to the keeper.

I religiously try to do what i am advised, and then try and judge by the results.

thanks my dutch friend for the recipes.

hugs,
pete

And check out www.24kitchen.nl....it can be translated, at least in the latest version of Google chrome that I use as my browser....

My favorite 'cook' is Rudolph Van Veen...he is from Belgium, but it's the dutch part, so many of his recipes are not only tasty, but also easy to make...he started out life as a professional baker, and then expanded into cooking, so his stuff is logical and easy to follow. There is one recipe that I made for my beau's birthday cake...appel-rozijnen cake..that is so good that all of the dutch friends who had some wanted the recipe...it was a BIG hit...unlike American cakes, which are light, this is a dense, moist cake...and the added bonus is that I substitute sugar-reduced apricot jam for the regular to top the cake, and this is in place of icing...so it's (relatively) low in sugar....

As far as the ancestral link, I think it's true...when I first came to The Netherlands, 20 years ago, all that really was eaten was things passed down in the family, served as sitdown family meals. And I hardly even saw an overweight person. Now, thanks to the 'global community', McDonalds, Starbucks, BurgerKing, and KFC, I see many young people that are VERY overweight...sigh...

I hope this works for you!

Hey everyone,

Bought a Champion juicer a few weeks ago. Love it. I am frugel so I don't like to throw away anything. Many recipes for carrot pulp, etc... muffins, crackers. I even experimented today and used chia seeds soaked in water to substitute for eggs in the muffins and it worked! I guess chia seeds are good for you too...who knew?

Yard work for us here with all the nice Minnesota weather. Fractured hip is getting better so I hope to actually do a little work tomorrow in the garden. Will swim at the YMCA in the morning and drink my carrot juice with all the goodies in it~ blessings to all.

It was wonderful today going to the park in the warm spring weather here. One of my dogs who is two had never been to a park at all (because I have mostly been sick every spring the last two years and it is too hot in summer to do such things). And the others hadn't been in a long time. They loved the smells and barking at the skateboarders and the squirrels. They gobbled grass leaves. I loves watching them enjoy it all.

Tomorrow I have a project -- am going to start putting away some Christmas things -- I have been too sick during chemo and chemo toxicity last month to ever get to it. I may not get to the tree but am getting through the other piles and separating out stuff to give away. I inherited family Christmas stuff two years ago when my mom died and had plenty of my own so have way too much now but haven't been well enough to ever go through it. I vowed I would pull everything out of the closet and go through it this year and get rid of about half of it.

My hubby is home for the weekend and is going to steam clean the bedroom and hall carpet. You can't imagine all the things I spilled on it, dropped on it etc. when I was alone for long periods after liver surgery for three months and then during chemo for seven months. Eck! Really just want to rip it up and throw it out and replace it with laminate flooring but I can't commit to a big project like that until after my post-chemo scans next week. So for now, just a cleaning while I am actually out of bed each day like a normal person.

So sorting through excess holiday junk and cleaning a carpet may not sound so exciting to others but it is to me. It's wonderful I feel good enough finally to take things like this on.

And of course just feeling well and be capable to do all that you were not able because of illness is a good plan!.
God bless you K1.

Okay, here's my weekend:

Yesterday I ate a good lunch and ended about 12:30. From that point on, until 6:30 this evening, I was participating with the youth at church in the 30 Hour Famine. That's an event where the youth drink only liquids for 30 hours to help them feel what it's like for people in the world who are starving. They get people to donate to the efforts. So, my sweet Bill stayed at the church with me and the kids, and a lively time was had by all. How in the world can they have such energy when they're not eat

Tomorrow I am hosting the June table for our church birthday party. After that, I'm going with the youth to see the Harlem Globetrotters. And then I'm coming home and RESTING.

*hugs*

OK, I wasn't playing rugby (!) but I attended the fantastic International Rugby Sevens tournament held in Hong Kong every year. It was fantastic -- great rugby, and a carnival atmosphere -- lots of people dressed up, great music. It lasts Friday evening, all day Sat, all day Sunday. I didn't last all day each day but went every day. It was the perfect antidote to WAY too much time in hospital, medical tests etc. Yea!!
