Summer Tip: Ice Cream Substitute

It’s hot.

If you are anything like me all you want is a large glass of Ice Tea or even better Ice Cream, but we both know that we shouldn’t. The more fluid we put on before treatment is more fluid that we have to carry and that our hearts have to deal with. Then we have even more to take off during treatment and that leads to cramping and low blood pressure. 

So what are we to do?

Well I stumbled on an interesting solution that not only cooled me down, slaked my thirst, and proved to be a healthy snack.

What is this amazing thing?

The New Year and Carrots

It’s a New Year again and as you may remember last year I made a list of goals. Today I am going to review this list and see how I did. I am also going to take a new approach as to how I go about next year’s list. I wanted to get this out before New Year’s Eve but I waited until the last day and then I had a bad treatment, oh well.

Lemon-Dill Carrots



Man it’s been a while hasn’t it? I suppose I have gotten lost in all of the projects I have been involved in.

The above image is very close to what I made today. Yeah I even used my mandolin to cut full grown carrots on the bias. Trust me, it looks nice but its easier to use baby carrots.

Popcorn Seasonings

No…that’s not not burnt popcorn its coarsely ground pepper.

My wife wakes me up at 7am today and asks me to take her to work. Not really a big deal since today is an off day for me. After I brave the INSANE traffic to get her to work she asks me to clean the house as we will be having guests on Friday. This was a little annoying as I wanted today to myself but oh well. After I dropped her off I stopped by the store to get something to drink and snack on. My phosphorus had been a little high so I decided to be good and try my hand at making stove-top popcorn.

Then I decided that plan popcorn probably tastes horrible. So I spent a few minutes looking around the internet for ideas and here is what I came up with.

**NOTE: Here’s the thing, the following amounts are enough to flavor a one gallon ziptop bag because I always make at least enough to fill two one gallon bags.**
