Honey Cookies and an Update

We have been very busy here lately.  We have been processing deer, training puppies, and my health has taken a dive again.

Since I have been sick Hubby has been staying home more and reading Mother Earth News Archives. He found a great recipe for Honey Cookies. It is the chocolate oatmeal no bake cookies but made with honey. They came out creamer and less rich. I poured it in a greased pan and cut then into chunks. (I had two deer to process today so I was lazy when it came time to make them into cookies.)

1 stick margarine

3/4 c honey

3/4 c milk

3 TBS cocoa powder

1 Cup Chunky peanut butter

3 cups of oats

Heat the margarine, honey, milk, and cocoa powder to a boil. Boil rapidly for 3 minuets. Then add peanut butter and oats. Spread in a buttered cake pan. Let cool and cut into squares.

Wesley is still on his cooking quest. When he went to get his hair cut he talked to his hair dresser about cooking. (Yes he has a hair dresser not a barber lol) They were talking about Paula Deen. She told him to watch Rachel Ray. So this weekend I found him a show on Hulu. He told me that she used EVOO and not butter. He was Southern and Butter was what he was going to use.  So Paula Deen you won that battle by a land slide.

Now on to my health. Every one knows that I am diabetic, and have high blood pressure. They takes away sodium and sugar from my diet. Then I had high potassium. Now I have to much acid and phosphorus in my blood. So Now my diet it limited to very little. I can have vegetables, one hot dog, one egg, or a piece of fresh sausage. So if any one has any ideas please let me know.

Handme still has not returned. I bite the bullet and got the kids lab/husky puppies. This was an adventure at first. They are 8 weeks old and to small to stay out side.  I had them in my house but it looked like World War 3 in my house. So I put then in their crate on the front porch at night . They cried to much every time that hubby got up at 3:30 in the morning. So now when we are not here and at night they are sleeping in the chicken house with the long run.   The boy is named Cowboy and the Girl is named Kita. Wesley has been keeping them running so at night they are happy to go to their beds and sleep.

Hi! Thought I'd drop in to see how you're doing ... miss seeing you in the Blogosphere! Hope everything is okay. Are you allowed to have any oil? You could make some great stir fries with the foods you are allowed. I've recently been steaming veggies with herbs & spices. I love them! You could also juice veggies or make a soup out of them. I hope you're health improves soon! Take care, friend!
