I know it's been awhile since I've posted a recipe. Sorry to all who followers. The last time I posted was in September. Really no reason for not posting, just needed a rest. In May of 2009 I had back surgery, then got a blood clot in my leg in August. The rest of 2009 and into 2010 was busy going to doctors. In the summer of 2010 I tore a tendon in my ankle, but the doctor won't but me in a cast due to my clotting problems. Had to wear a brace and still wearing the brace. Oh well, thank God something could be done so I could walk without pain. The rest of 2010 was doctor visit after doctor visit. Two weeks before Christmas had to go to the ER with Cellulitis and guess what they put me in the hospital. Well, it's a New Year and hopefully a better one for my family and me. I tried of being sick, but after resting and lots of prayer I know this year will be a GREAT!!! year.
