My New Test Kitchen and Band

Good low fat recipes

Yesterday was a great day!  I  made a couple of new recipes.  The low fat cheeseburger pie was pretty good.  The next time I make it, I will put some spicier seasoning in with the meat.  It was just a little bland for my taste.  My family liked it, though.  The low fat cheesecake was even better than I thought it would be.  Very tasty!  I don’t usually buy the low fat, no sugar added, sugar substitute ingredients.  I have always gone for the ‘real thing’.  “…Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby,…”  You know, the song!?

Guitar Hero

On Christmas day our family began the Guitar Hero habit.  If we can spare 30 minutes at the end of the day, the GET band rocks the house!!!  My husband came up with our band’s name, using each of our first name’s initials.  I LOVE the drums.  My husband and son choose who will be lead guitar.  Since Christmas, I have moved  up a couple of levels to the medium difficulty setting on most songs.  My favorites are Heartbreaker, American Woman, No Sleep Til Brooklyn, and Strangehold.    It is very challenging, trying to get the notes right and in rhythm.  It is so fun, I want to go out and buy a real set of drums!

No Time To Catch My Breath

Today was a very busy day. Back to school, giving piano lessons, and cooking. There was one way to relax: Guitar Hero Aerosmith. My husband had bought it and we got it in the mail today. I played the bass guitar tonight. He played the lead. I only had time to play 3 songs, but it was enough to help relax.

I’ve had the biggest appetite today, but I stuck to only one sweet. This is so hard right now. I believe I want to eat because of stress. Chocolate is calling my name! Maybe it will get easier after a while.
