After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011.  Retirement is a big change from spending all my time getting ready for work, spending 30 minutes going to work, being at work, going home from work, recovering from working all day, and – oh, yes – trying to live all the rest of my life in a couple of hours in the evenings and on weekends.

Now I have time to do all the things that I thought about when I was at work.  I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat meals for us to eat.  I try to use as many fresh fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs – LOL!  I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.

My recipies make at least 4 servings, and generally 6 or 8, because of 2 reasons:  I don’t want to cook every day, and most of these taste better after sitting in the fridge overnight.  If you’re like me, you will like having great leftovers, and a day free from cooking.

I found you due to our fellow love of fun nails 🙂 I think you’re positive and very creative, therefore I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award (plus with a name like Sunflower Swank, it was destiny!). If you choose to accept, please check out my blog – instructions are at the bottom of the post.
