A STACK OF POTASSIUM/FIBER GOODNESS

I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth in each of these pancakes. Breakfast never tasted so good.With a sweet/tart topping of simmered strawberries and blueberries, my taste buds were super-delighted.

COLON HAPPY DRINK ##CUCUMBER JUICE

It doesn’t take much for yours truly to celebrate. There’s no need to wait for once per year. For me, every day is a celebration. So, what did I do? I fetched two of my champagne chutes and went to town. By the way, these two are gifts from a good mate. Seems like we’re always in a celebratory mood. Thanks to her……yeah!!

Had a couple of medium-sized  cucumbers.  But, I know their shelf lives are very low. Can’t afford to let them go to waste. Never felt like having them in a garden salad or pickling them. So, yours truly opted to chop them up and make a refreshing cucumber juice.
