Baby Robins

We have baby robins in the underneath side of our pin box on the fifth wheel. Sure am glad she hatched them now so she can get them raised before we want to go somewhere. When I go out to the RV to get something, the mama robin becomes very agitated and tries to dive bomb me.

It has been an uneventful day but busy. Michael started our project today over on the ranch his son manages. We are excavating around the foundations of 3 cabins and laying drain pipe. I stayed home and got caught up on cleaning and laundry. I also cooked up a bunch of food so I wouldn't have to think of something to cook when I come home from working dead tired. I am off to help him starting tomorrow, we should be finished in about a week.

There is so much talk on many of the blogs I read about the economy and ways to save money. wrote today about cheap and healthy meals to prepare. I agreed with all his ideas such as cooking beans and pasta but I didn't agree with his comments about adding chicken to Ramen noodles and creating a healthy and nutritious meal! Ramen noodles while the mainstay of my college age granddaughter are loaded with sodium and all this time I thought a package was a serving--NOT--there are two servings to a package and 890mg of sodium per serving! The noodles also have a healthy dose of fat per serving.

We are trying so hard to diet and it gets frustrating when the scale stays at the same spot for too long. I try to cook healthy, no packaged or prepared foods, just meats, vegetables and whole grains like oats and whole wheat breads. Guess I am just eating too much of the "healthy."

  1. What do we expect when a current commercial hypes cooking a real family meal....and the ad is for "Hamburger Helper". Sigh....

    Like you, I'm trying hard to move away from processed food. It's difficult because it's so easy...pop a dinner into the microwave and you're done in a couple of minutes. No muss, no fuss, no time at all! LOL!!
