Getting a true taste of Macon

October 17, 2012


It’s been a good year for family weddings. In the summer, we traveled to Texas to see the first of the first cousins once removed (I checked the chart) on Daddy’s side get hitched. This weekend we went eastward to Macon, Ga., to see a chapter close, as the final first cousin on Mama’s branch (not removed at all) tied the knot.

My momma didn’t raise no quitter

October 14, 2012

It turns out that some dreams are harder to kill than others.
While cleaning out a bookcase this week, I discovered a list of my personal goals for the fall of 1978. It was tucked into a book titled “Talkin’ Dirty with the Queen of Clean.” Apparently, in those days, I was more concerned with a spotless home than I am today.

Eating healthy at the state fair

October 10, 2012


One doesn’t often hear the words “eat healthy” in the same sentence as the words “state fair," but I am here to testify that it can be done.

Try to lighten up your cooking

October 10, 2012


— Keep it low in fat. Measure your cooking oils, don’t just pour them freely. Oils are very calorie dense. Use a non-stick skillet to further reduce the fat you use.

— Go very light on the cheese. Opt for small amounts of flavorful cheeses like Parmesan or Romano. Use fat-free ricotta in place of regular ricotta cheese.
