Always be honest. Be there when they need you. Cheer them on. Don't look for their faults. Every chance you get, call! Forgive them. Get together often. Have faith in them. Include them.Just listen. Know their dreams. Love them unconditionally. Make them feel special. Never forget them. Offer to help. Praise them honestly. Quietly disagree. Rescue them often. Say you're sorry when you need to. Talk frequently. Use good judgement. Vote for them! Walk beside them. X-ray yourself first. Your words count. Zip your mouth when told a secret.

The picture is a picture of the spaghetti pie I made Monday night for supper. I found the recipe in the new cookbook my mom received last month. The cook book is called A Quilter's Christmas Cookbook.

6 oz pkg spaghetti, cooked and drained
2 Tbsp olive oil or butter
1 large egg
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
fresh basil

1. Toss hot spaghetti with olive oil or butter.
2. Mix together egg and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Stir into spaghetti.
3. pour spaghetti mixture into a greased 10" pie pan. Form into a "crust".
4. Spread ricotta cheese over bottom of spaghetti crust. Add spaghetti sauce.
5. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Top with mozzarella cheese. Bake another 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
6. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Cool for 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.

January Port Flush

This morning I had fasting blood work done for next month's physical. No problems in accessing my port, or getting blood return. Hopefully, the problems of getting blood return is behind me.

I will have blood work done again next month, because of the CT scan I will have later that month.

My blood pressure was high, but I think it was due to the worry of whether if my port would return blood or not. Plus, I have a sinus infection also.
