Paula, I do use a bread machine. I don't make bread that often, because I usually buy it freshly made at the farmer's market. I only make two kinds: one kind is overnight bread (that does not require kneading or a bread machine) and the kind that I throw in the bread machine. Either way, less work for me! :)
The dried cranberries are good--at least I think so. Kind of like the whole cranberry sauce, only dry. The only negative I have about them is that they are sweetened. I have to keep portion size small because of that.
Thanks for the comment. One of the biggest things I have to remember is be prepared before I go to the grocery store. If I buy it I will eat it...there is no turning back. Plan and succeed! I've tried to wing it far to often lately and it always turns out bad.
Hi Paula! Happy T-giving! I just wanted to say thank you for all your support and encouragement over the past few months. :) I really appreciate it and am SO looking forward to getting back on track after vacation!!
I live with two carnivores so I usually make two different dinners each day.
I do morningstar farms products, quorn product, tofurkey, better'n peanut butter, Bell Plantation PB2, greek yogurt, lite string cheese sticks, beans, and eggs mostly.
I hate the fake hamburgers that are out there. Haven't had a brand I like.
Know what I hate? When people try too hard to accommodate my eating. I'm just way too picky. Either they try to buy vegetarian burgers which I dislike or they make a pasta in marinara sauce. (I have a sensitivity to garlic and onions since my daughter was born) So as not to be rude or ungrateful for their thoughtfulness, I usually choke it down and tolerate it the best I can. I would rather bring my own food-but usually the host prefers that I not.
I think the reason I don't like the veggie burgers is that so many of them try to compensate for the lack of taste by overseasoning them. Garlic seems to be one of the seasonings. I'm sure that's my problem with them.....There's some sort of aftertaste that drives me insane....
