Hello SAG fans. Here it is just about one month since my last Spit and Glue posting. That's not to say I haven't been busy elsewhere on the blog front. Technical difficulties have me stumped over at Samwich365.com, but in spite of that, the site is growing and still a lot of fun.

Other "fronts" which I don't necessarily like to discuss here have kept me busy too, having amped up my efforts to make 2010 healthier (in multiple ways), I'm holding out hope, keeping my fingers crossed and doing all I know how to get on track and back in business.

One of my closest friends has used her influence to try and get me off the "white foods", and after several discussions, a little reading, the fear of God and listening to this old body, Sis and I are in sinc and on board with the whole idea.

We began by trading evening martinis or wine with dinner for green tea (in Sis' case coffee). We've cleared our respective cupboards of all things made with white flour and/or sugar, and have officially given up the search for whole grain bread in our little town, pathetic!

Pictured here are our first efforts at making homemade, whole grain wheat flat bread which last night paired masterfully with our famous shrimp and mayopeno salad (a little something we whipped up last summer for S365).

This was dinner. Flat bread efforts follow.

We did a Google search and found many recipes for whole grain, quick and easy flat bread. I won't publish this one, if you want it, leave me a comment with your email address and I'll send it to you.

As you can see, it's not a professional job, but with a little practical experience, it should be easy enough to master the art of flat bread making. The hard part will be changing eating habits that have gone unchecked for sugar, et. al. for many years. Any suggestions, friends? I'd love to hear them.

  5. Thanks for your lovely post......I have enjoyed your photos as well......hmmmm, now I'm hungary! We're trying to eat healthier this year too. A huge sweet tooth issue is my challenge.....but I have not had any junk food or sweets since Jan 1......I made it thru Valentine's Day! Hope you can stop by our store in Woodstock next time you are up this way!
