Books of Interest
The first book which I loved really explains the necessity of balancing Omega-3's with Omega-6's. The average American gets way too much Omega 6 and not nearly enough Omega 3. Omega 6 can cause a lot of the inflammation that most disease states go through.

Omega 3 causes the opposite effect. The book is called The Ultimate Omega 3 Diet by Evelyn Tribole, M.S., R.D.

P.S. - They have a great and easy teriyaki recipe in there which I have tried on fish and chicken. Both great!

The second book is I Hate You - Don't Leave Me, by Jerold J. Kreisman, M.D. and Hal Straus. It is a great book if you are dealing with anyone - friend, family, co-worker, who has any addictive personality traits, or someone who has mood swings or violent outbursts. The term the book uses is "Borderline Personality Disorder". It has a lot of information in a very small book and is an easy read.

From the Heart
In June 2007, Kathy lost her mom. Ethel was in her 80's when she passed away. She still lived alone at home. The day she had her stroke, she put up 4 apricot cobblers in the freezer and was in the process of putting up more. The day before, she had mowed and weedeated her yard and worked in her vegetable garden we planted for her in the spring. She was a very active lady who tried to eat a low-fat diet, although she did love her sweets. As the State Fair rolls around and the holidays are just around the corner, her absence will be greatly felt in our family. In honor of her, I would like to encourage each of you to tell your family members that you love them, share memories and stories (and pictures) of your past. Most important, please have a will made. Write down your health history. It not only impacts your health, but also your children and grand children. Spend time with them - make your own memories. Tell all your close family members your health wishes concerning life support, etc. We were lucky, Ms. Ethel did all that, making a very difficulty time a little easier. We were able to do a lot of things at the end and beyond Ms. Ethel's way.

This one's for you, Mom.

Holiday Salad
1 large pkg. orange Jello
2 c. boiling water
1 pt. orange sherbet
1 small can crushed pineapple w/ juice
1 c. miniature marshmallows
1 can (approx. 11oz) Mandarin Oranges (drained)
1/2 c. chopped nuts
1 small container of Cool Whip (thawed)

Dissolve Jello in water. Add sherbet to Jello while still hot- stir until jello starts to set-up. Add pineapples, marshmallows, oranges, and nuts. Add Cool Whip and chill. Should be firm before serving. Chill for approx. 2-3 hours.

Hints: I use colored marshmallows for a different look. Nuts can be pecans or walnuts. You can also use fruit cocktail in place of the mandarin oranges. Just drain it well before using.

With the holidays coming up, I wanted to use a recipe that can be used through the end of the year. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. ENJOY!
