Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

A Christmas Story

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on December 18, 2012 ][ In Uncategorized ]


Twas the week before Christmas

And all through the house

only me and the cats were stirring,

hopefully not even a mouse.

My son was still tucked all snug in his bed,

While my daughter was at school, using her head.

A kitty in my lap, hot chocolate in hands,

I was trying to write inspirational words for my fans,

when out on the lawn I heard such a clatter,

I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.

And what to my sleepy eyes should appear

but a miniature sleigh and eight mule deer.

I wasn’t dizzy or sick

yet I knew it must be St. Nick!

In a twinkling I called out, no fooling,

“Santa, what are you doing?”

His eyes twinkled and his dimples were merry

His cheeks were like roses, his nose a cherry.

His face was creased like a bow

and the beard on his chin was white as snow.

Yet this Santa was fit and flat was his belly;

nothing shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly!

He spoke not a word but handed me a stocking;

inside was a Fitbit and tennis shoes for walking,

olive oil for cooking and a basket of fruit,

best of all, a Nike track suit!

He jumped in his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle

and away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

But I heard he exclaim, before he could disappear,

“Good Health to all in the coming New Year!”


Please excuse my pitiful attempt at humor and poetry but I hope you got a laugh.  Wishing you and your family have a safe, happy holiday filled with love and laughter.  May your New Year be filled with a renewed dedication to good health.
