Meet Buddy Love he"s a 9 year old golden retriever. Sweet as can be!! I was in a 2 chair room with my Mom than got a roommate. Older lady & her husband. I felt trapped in the corner & could not wait to get out of there!!! Plus the volunteer stood in the doorway & chatted away, made it so much worse! Cell signal was weak in there too??!!
I went out to lunch after with my Mom & her friend & grandkids. Little man was sporting these boots!! I love them!!!
I"m feeling tired, sick to my tummy & like I got run over by a bus.

I downloaded the blogger app to my phone last Thursday while I was sitting getting my first dose of Chemo drugs. I was there for 6 hours!! I had 2 great friends, one took me & stayed awhile. Than the other came & stayed the rest of the time. She also took me home. She brought me a goodie bag of some fun colorful slipper socks, pens, pad, date book, magazine, purple turban with flower!!! Oh & a big pack of tissues. She brought her netbook was fun to see one in action. She had lots of pictures of her 4 month old beautiful grandson!!
This was the view from my chair.

Jen's Incredible Baked Meatballs:
1 pound hamburger, grass-fed if possible
2 eggs, beaten with 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup panko or bread crumbs
1 small onion, minced or grated (1/2 a large onion)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup minced fresh flat-leaf parsley or basil
Mix all ingredients with hands. Form into golfball sized meatballs. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Tip #2: If you have a leftover piece of rind from the Parmesan, let it simmer in the crock pot with the marinara sauce or save for another soup recipe. This will add a great flavor boost to most any sauce or soup.
Basic Marinara Sauce
2 Tbsp olive oil
5-6 cloves of garlic, minced (about 2 Tbsp)
2 Tbsp dried herbs (basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, etc)* mixed, total
1/2 cup red wine***(left out)
12 cups peeled and seeded fresh ripe tomatoes** (I didn't de-seed them all)
salt and pepper to taste
