I try, folks, I really try

My goal, truly folks, is to be a good blogger and blog regularly. I will get there soon, I am hoping.  I think of things to blog about constantly but somehow lately, life has been getting in the way.

This past weekend, I was happy to get some cooking done. I like to cook things on the weekends that I can freeze portions of for future use and dinners.

I made a really great homemade vegetable broth that I then froze in individual 2-cup containers. It smelled WONDERFUL and I am really happy with it since it has no sodium and just fresh vegetables and water! Lovely.

Then I made two tofu loaves - soooo good and so low calorie.  I froze individual servings and was also able to share some with my mom, who had her first taste of tofu.  She loved it, so YAY!!
And finally, on Sunday, I made a really tasty black bean soup in the crock pot....and got to use some of my homemade vegetable broth!!  Delish!!

 And I would also like to share with you my beautiful grandmother, who just celebrated her 93rd birthday on Sunday.  She lives in a wonderful nursing home about 10 minutes from me.  Although she can be stubborn and spoiled sometimes, she is an amazing woman.  And heck, if you get to the age of 93, you can be stubborn and've earned it!!

See you next time - hopefully with not such a big gap in between blog posts!

Your tofu loaf looks delicious. I would love to know what is in it. :-)

I agree at 93 you can do whatever you want, you have earned that right. I love your grandmother's hat. It looks great on her.

I love this post! It is so smart to make big batches of food when you've got time and then freeze it to use later. I really need to start doing that. And what delicious looking food!

And I love hearing about your grandma - 93 never looked so good! She looks sassy and awesome. You are lucky to have her in your life!
