Super Sweet Blogging Award


Jo has nominated me for the Super Sweet Blogging Award.

I take this as a great honor to receive this delectable award. Every time I see it I just want to reach out and take a bite.

I met Jo many months ago when I started blogging. She has a family member that has Parkinson’s Disease, just like I do. It drew us together instantly. Come to find out she doesn’t live very far from me. We have talked about meeting up but she has a terrible sense of direction!! (sorry Jo, could not resist)

She is strong, caring and tries to live the good life. She is so fortunate to be involved with loving parents and a wonderful husband. Go check her out if you haven’t met her already. I am sure she will greet you with a hot cup of coffee and something delicious to eat.

Here are the answers to her five questions on her own nomination.

1. Cookies or cake? Uhm….I hate to burst the bubble on the first question, but, I really don’t like sweets.   but, I do like thin mint cookies of the Girl Scout variety.

2. Chocolate or vanilla. Chocolate every time.( I do have a weakness for M&M’s though)

3. What is your favourite sweet treat, cheesecake or frozen yoghurt?  I would have to admit, it would be a piece of homemade cherry cheesecake, but only about once a year…

4.When do you crave sweet things the most?  I don’t crave sweet things, now ask me about a bag of potato chips, or “crisps”…

5. If you had a sweet nickname what would it be?   I’ll leave this one, after all my blog is rated G.  hehehe…

1. My favorite is a hot soft chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven

2. Chocolate wins for me every single time. Vanilla only comes to mind when I am baking and have to add it

3.Cheesecake is the ultimate for me. In fact had some not long ago in the month of December

4. I crave sweets once I have taken a bite of it. With diabetes I want what I can not have, so I try hard to stay a way from sugars

5. People used to call me TJ in school, Teresa is my real name but every one calls me Terry. Dad wanted a boy, so I am nicknamed with a boy’s spelling.

Thank-you again for this nomination my friend

Hot Potato Award

Look at this award! I am a Hot Potato tonight!

I think I should feel pretty lucky about this, shouldn’t I?

Doesn’t everyone love potatoes? Fried, baked, mashed, twice baked, french fried, boiled, potato chips. It is the number one side dish that we all love but are too afraid to eat anymore because of carbs.

I have this thing about carbs. I am a diabetic, so I am supposed to watch my carbs and sugars, and salts, and fats. Geesh! I guess I can eat nothing that is good, but lettuce.

I can remember back to my grandparents and even my husband’s grandparents, and see that their number one side dish was potatoes almost every single day. Plus they had meat, and vegetables and even desserts! I realize they worked harder than we do in the present life, but their foods were without chemicals, while ours are loaded. I am no scientist, but there is some connection here between chemicals, added weight, and cancers.

Oh sorry, I am supposed to be giving thanks for my award. So sorry, got sidetracked, once the mouth started drooling over the thought of nice hot buttery mashed potatoes.

The wonderful thing about this award also is, you don’t have to do anything, just accept it!

No hidden things about you to tell, no certain number of nominees. How much easier could it be?

I am going to nominate a few though, because if you are like me, you enjoy a good potato also!

So, drum roll please, louder, applause, whistles for:



Make sure to go check out Julie at the link above. She is wonderful. She and I share family members who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease.

Thank you Julie!
