I won’t be posting a Dinner post tonight due to a bad sinus infection that’s causing bad headaches. I went to the Doctor and wrote me a prescription. So hopefully back at it tomorrow! Take Care and Stay Safe!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Kitchen Closed – Penn Station

Today’s Menu: Penn Station Subs



I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the morning. Only 35 degrees out there this morning. We had a high of 47 degrees and sunny for the afternoon. Went to Meijer after my Tea about 7:00 this morning. I wanted to get there early, get what I needed and get out before it got crowded. With this Virus running wild it’s best to go early before a lot of people get there. I have 3 friends, 1 cousin, and Aunt and an Uncle all with the Virus. So I just stay in with my Mom. She’s 92 so I really can’t get out much and take a chance of passing something along to her. But she is in excellent health so that’s a plus for her. Anyway did some work around the house and watched some College Football. Kitchen Closed Again, Penn Station tonight!



I ordered a couple of Subs for us. Mom had the Reuben Footlong with Fresh Cut Fries and I had the Dagwood on Multi Grain Bun with Turkey, Salami, Ham, and American Cheese. First time in a very long time we had Penn Station. We’ll have to go back more often, they were Delicious! Mom’s Fresh Cut Fries were good too! Great Job Penn Station!

The Health Benefits of Apples

Core Benefits

The old cliché exists for a reason: An apple a day benefits your whole body in multiple ways. One of the most widely grown and eaten fruits in the world, they come in more than 7,500 varieties. They are healthiest when you eat them fresh and whole (as opposed to pre-sliced, juiced, or as applesauce). A medium one has about 80 calories, 1 gram of protein, 19 grams of natural sugar, and zero fat, sodium, or cholesterol……………….

Is Peanut Butter Good for Diabetics?
From the Diabetes Self Management website –

For many, peanut butter is a staple. From growing up eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to spreading peanut butter on crackers to, yes, eating a spoonful of peanut butter straight out of the jar, it’s not uncommon for most people’s kitchen cupboards to have a jar or two of this nut butter within easy reach. But is peanut butter all that it’s hyped up to be? And how does it affect your diabetes, if at all?

What is peanut butter?
The website Wikipedia describes peanut butter as “a food paste or spread made from ground, dry-roasted peanuts. It often contains additional ingredients that modify the taste or texture, such as salt, sweeteners or emulsifiers.”

That description pretty much hits the nail on the head. Peanut butter is so basic that you can make it yourself. Simply toss some roasted peanuts into a food processor and process until a thick, creamy paste forms. You now have peanut butter. Search the internet for how to make peanut butter and you’ll come across plenty of recipes. Some recipes may suggest adding some salt and/or honey, for example……………………………….
