If you have read my previous blog you will know that I have tried to take the iron supplement that the doctor prescribed for me. Well, I emailed the doctor about the problem of them making me physically sick and have heard nothing back. So I decided to wage my own war so to speak.
I purchased the items in the picture below to help me:
I was reading on the Internet that cast iron cookware will actually
disperse iron into food. So I bought a grilling pan and a large skillet. I think I will be able to cook almost anything in at least one of them. Please note that they are made in the USA! I bought some Lima beans, dark chocolate trail mix with nuts and raisins, and Total cereal which seemed to have the most iron. Of course I also read that there are some food one cannot eat because they cause your body to not absorb iron. I need to go back and write down that information and tack it on my refrigerator. If anyone has any other information, please let me know.
Next, some have asked about my tomatoes....so I took a picture of my plant...you will see that it is making progress and still has the two tomatoes and now has some blossoms too. Oh yes, my neighbor did give me a small tomato from her plant and it was delicious!
I had my grand daughter Hailey here for a couple of days.
Here she is with Arlene.
While here I taught her a basic crochet stitch....she was quite proud of herself for finally catching on. She took her small practice square and the needle with her. I told her next we would work on a scarf. We will see if she remembers for next time.
Any plans for the 4th of July? I was hoping for someone to invite me to spend the 4th with them....maybe a day trip and seeing fireworks at night. It hasn't happened....so I'm not sure what I will be doing, I guess I still have a few days for something to pop up.
Have a good night....tomorrow is July!
