My kidney infections continue on, hopefully my new urologist figures it out!! Supposed to have a dye test today or tomorrow there is a moderate blockage & will figure out what to do next!! I hope it's soon cause the kidney infections are very painful & knock the energy out of me!!

Veggie dinner night!!

So my roommate is out of town & I decided to do a veggie dinner!! Yay
So I thought they were leaving this afternoon (they still haven't left yet) I found some great deals at Lowes food this morning. Got 2 packs of butternut squash a pack of stew veggies ( red potatoes, celery, baby carrots & onions) & green beans!! Yummy!!
I roasted the stew mix with olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder & pepper.
