Hi, babycakes!

Hot is great, of course! I wanted to say sticky buns, but decided against it! LOL! Years ago, when I was hospitalized some pals of mine brought me a bag of sticky buns and of course there were plenty of jokes about those buns!

I think that is a GREAT idea Jude!
Your PJs are wonderful.

MrG is the best, isn't he ?
What would we do without him?

....and NASH is right on the mark.
Toasted Buns are the absolute best!

All this talk is getting me excited
Get your sweet cheeks over here.
It is soooooo cozy warm by the fire.

Plus, I used to eat beets as a snack...I never told my sis-in-law, they had to know that the winter supply was super low. But I really loved them! Never helped my anemia, though...I was anemic from age 11 to age 40! Several times my hemoglobin was so low I had to have transfusions!

Thanks, Ma!

Leave out the salmon, Mr. G! GROSS!! Some folks will find a way to mess up a good thing!

GRAB YOUR READING GLASSES EVERYBUDDY! :D
******************************************The Beet is usually not included in the list of favorite foods by most people. But if you seek better health then you need to make one exception, beet. The health benefits of beets help improve the energy levels as it is an excellent source of iron. Beets help in making the immune system strong and safeguard against cancerous growths. Once you are aware about all the health benefits of beets, then I am very sure that you will not mind having this red vegetable. Plus, you can have beet raw in the form of salad, no cooking required.

The health benefits of beets are:
1.One of the most amazing health benefits of beets is that it has no trans-fats and no saturated fats. Hard to believe, but true! It is extremely low in calories as well. Hence, it fills your stomach and its slight sweet taste satiates your sweet tooth also. This food helps in reducing the sugar craving and benefits your health in many ways.
2.Easy to eat: Beets can be purchased from the market and stored for days in the refrigerator. Simply, slice couple of beets and store them in the refrigerator. Every time you feel hungry or feel the need to munch something, have the beets you saved earlier. No cooking required and cold beets taste good as well.
3.Beets are rich in carbohydrates and it is great way to quickly energize your body. Other processed foods are also high in carbohydrates but they are a poor source of energy. Beets are more or less like an energy food or fuel for the body.
4.Beet is a great source of minerals as they are rich in sodium, calcium, phosphorous, iron as well as magnesium. Beets also have dietary fiber in it. It also contains noticeable amounts of niacin, Vitamin C as well as Vitamin A.
5.Beets have folic acid in it. Folic acid is important for the proper growth of new cells. Folic acid is required for the health of pregnant women and someone who requires physical healing. Many people take supplements that have folic acid in it, however, taking the health benefits of beets everyday will fulfill your folic acid need that too in a natural way. Yes, at times taking supplements is essential for health, however, if you can have something natural and avoid that supplement will be good for your health.
6.Research has indicated that the health benefits of beets are helpful in preventing several kinds of cancer, mainly colon cancer.
7.Research has also indicated that having beets everyday helps in protecting the body from many heart problems.
8.Beets are available in all the seasons. So whenever you want to have them you can get it from the grocery store. You do not have to wait for one full season for fresh produce before you can take the health benefits of beets.
9.You can have beets in the raw form as well as boiled, steamed or sautéed forms. You can also have the juice of fresh beets. However the juice of beet has a very strong taste and may not be like by all, but beet juice is an excellent health tonic. You can mix beet juice with carrot juice and apple juice to reduce the strong taste.
10.Beets are natural blood cleanser and colon cleanser.

Hi, babycakes!!

What is the big deal with beets? I do like them, but I don't have them as often as I did when I was younger. My nephew's mom had grown them in her garden and had oodles stored in the freezer so we had them at least once a week.
