Welcome my friends. I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living. It’s a step in the right direction for sure. I hope you come along for the ride. Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share. Hope you enjoy. Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤
Week of 03/11-03/17/2018 – Week 10
“Dear Journal – Do you ever feel like time is slipping away. You look in the mirror one day and you love your curly hair and your long legs. You look again and your hair is thinning and those once long giraffe legs now resemble a short buffalo? LOL – okay nothing that drastic but you get the meaning. Life is short. We talked about celebrities aging today… and then realized that we were also aging. We still act like kids young at heart while our bodies get older every day. What once we thought would never happen to us when our grandparents couldn’t get up as fast or walk as far has now hit us… no full force yet but knocking on the door for short visits. We say it all of the time – life is short. So what do we do? Live it up every.single.day as if it is the last. Because you never know – tomorrow is not a given 🙂 ”

This week the hub unit was craving homemade fried shrimp and his beloved tater tots. I use to limit these meals because of the deep frying and I still do. But, I wanted to see what the air fryer could do for my hub’s favorite meal. I bought fresh shrimp, deveined them and slightly pounded them giving them a ‘flat’ appearance. I then battered the shrimp with a light coating of egg mixture and seasoned flour. I placed them in the air fryer for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Have way, I turned them and added the tater tots. They came out beautifully! Lightly tanned on the outside, crunchy and so juicy on the inside.
