How She does it...Tutorial


I bought WHITE bread (shudder) and was allowed to buy it because ER nurse said White and Bland only for a few days to give your tummy time to adjust to GB removal.

NO grains NO nuts Bland ONLY...  I had Bob hold a gun on me to make me buy the loaf above.... The reason for the photo is The Price of $2.25

I saw the price and thought I used to buy this for .99 cents a loaf in the 80's and before that 4 for 1.00 when my kids were small, Way Before.... SNAP!!!! Snap!!!


 Bob and I were in the produce dept and  I spied these grapes, I waved to get his attention and pointed at the small box of grapes that was marked 3.99 and raised my eyebrows?

Since he is hard of hearing, this is sign language known as  spouse speak for Do I dare pay 4 bucks for that? He laughed and nodded OK.

Bronze Scuppernongs are hard to find, expensive and only show up once a year. He knows I LOVE THEM... as I have told him many times in the past the story of standing in my Dad's arbor in Savannah GA and pigging out on them until he made me stop before I made myself sick.

After reading the label on the inside that they are a powerhouse of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits, WOULD I have pigged out on them if I had KNOWN?

They are grown in Georgia, as was I......



 If you are having problems with finding material for a post.... here is a short Tutorial on how MadSnapper finds material to create a post like this one....

.READY? on the edge of your seat???? Here You Go

1. Keep camera close  by and snap a shot of anything/everything you beg/borrow/steal  that comes in your house

2. If you think it, write it... and to facilitate this important step, Keep pad/pen in every room to write it ON. Do Not depend on your memory because you WILL forget.

Ready, Get Set, Snap and POST

Your strategy boasts dedication and effectiveness. No family arbors close by in my childhood, but day-trip visits to friends and relatives meant at least 2 binges a year during scuppernong season. As child I loved the sour taste of many fruits that were not quite ripe.

But I only binged on not-quite-ripe scuppernongs once. The resulting stomache ache taught me better. I thought I was dying.

I still love the RIPE golden ones. I also enjoy the wild purple ones, but rarely see them. My parents and I used to find the wild vines when we were fishing in skiffs on wild creeks or on tramps through woods when visiting relative's farms.

I never eat white bread, but sometimes (as in your case) you have to I guess. It's a rainy day here, half day already finished. Have a great day!

Kathy said...

But will those grapes fit in with your bland, white bread diet?

P.S. My mom still eats nothing but white bread! And she's 91, so ... And it must be Mrs. Baird's Large. She has never warmed up to the idea of square "sandwich" bread. Now me, there's a couple sandwiches that just must be made on white bread - a grilled cheese and chicken salad. But that's all.

If those prices shock you you should try shopping in Australia. ADD about a dollar fifty to the bread and about 5 dollars to the grapes and you would have our prices.

How do you get the hard of hearing husband (HHH) to "get" the sign language? Mine doesn't have a clue.

Most important thing! You posted this. So you have power and all! Still!

How to find posting topics??? Me? I take lots of pics. And I do think of possible bloggging topics, "on the run." And sometimes, I put them in Draft.

But I am so chatty, that I sit down to do a post, and it mostly...... Evolves.

Being this chatty is: Blessing in Pretty Blog Land. Curse in real life. ,-))))

Great tips for blogging....thanks! Hope you are safe from the storm....take care, my friend!

Angela said...

You are so right about bread prices. I used to buy it at a reduced bread store in Maryland where they would let you use coupons and I would pay a dime or a nickel for a loaf of bread!

Hope you've figured out what you can and can't eat after having your gallbladder out.

Madi and Mom said...

I LOVE Scuppernongs too. I can still remember the simple delight of popping the thick skin off and sucking that delicious inner!!
Yummy

when I looked at the cute little girl on the bread wrapper my first thought was---I think that's what Sandra looked like as a little girl,you can see the twinkle in her eyes.
Fun post...have a great monday, I have a date when a bucket of fresh peaches from our tree :)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Ah, the good old days when you could buy 4 loaves of bread for a dollar! I do remember those days. I have to say that I love white bread, even tho I know it's probably not good for me.
Hope Isaac hasn't or won't cause too much grief where you live.

TexWisGirl said...

you're cute. those grapes are cool!

Deb said...

Hubby only likes white bread...refuses wheat...I gave up bread and bread products over 3 years ago...I was a bread junkie...feel so much better with out it...I love your tutorial...I think we went to the same Blog school...

EG CameraGirl said...

Bread is much more expensive than I remember, that's for sure. All kinds, not just white.

Love your tutorial. Thanks for the tips. :))

Ann said...

I haven't seen the little sunbeam girl in ages. When my daughter was really little she reminded me of the sunbeam girl. Bread prices, along with everything else are crazy.
Never heard of those grapes before.
Love the tutorial and I think the most important part of it for me to remember is the writing it down when I think of it. Must keep pen and paper handy at all times :)

barbara l. hale said...

Excellent advice there at the end. I didn't know you had your GB out. Hope you have a very quick recovery. Personally though, I can't believe they are still making Wonder Bread.

I have never even hard of grapes like that,but would sure try them if given the chance.

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh my gosh, the Scuppernogs look so good! As a kid I did the same as you and ate them straight from the vine. I never see them on this coast, not even once a year.

Scott said...

I better write that down. Thanks to the cost of fuel prices are so high. I sure hope the next administration does something to get the prices of fuel etc. back down at least a little.

Rose said...

I really, really need to keep a pad and paper on me at all times...just because I cannot hold on to anything for more than a millisecond....I didn't used to be that way.

You know Sandra - I don't think I have even tried them - they look pretty though - I will have to look at the store tomorrow when I go. sandie
