Friday's Fave Five

Wow! Where did this week go? It's already Friday again and time for Susanne's Friday's Fave Five. It's been a slow week around my house. I'm still recouping from surgery.

Here's my list for the week:

1.
Crystal Light Pomegranate Lemonade - This stuff has to be addicting. I love it! I have started drinking more water and feel so much better with more energy. I've been cutting back on the number of Dr. Pepper's I used to drink. I was up 3 or 4 a day in December. Now I drink one a day and drink lots of Crystal Light. I have lost 16 pounds since Christmas. There is only one problem with drinking more water......


2.
Smokehouse Black Pepper - This pepper is so good on black eyed peas, white beans, green beans, or anything that needs a little extra smokey flavor.


3.
Sweet Potato Vine - I started this several weeks ago and this week it seemed to just pop out with leaves. My Aunt always has one of these growing in her kitchen.


4.
Sister Schubert's Rolls - Oh my! The package says - just warm and serve. It should also say - will add inches to your behind - so go ahead and attach them to your rear end with duct tape! It also states - heat only as many as you need. I don't "need" any of these but I "want" to eat half the package when they come out of the oven.....

5.
Lamentations 3:21-22 - “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
These verses have been stuck in my head and heart all week. Isn't it great to have something new every morning? This is a good reason to get out of bed some mornings!

Hope your recovery is going well!

That pepper sounds good -- will have to look for it!

I love Sister Schubert's roles! We use the cinnamon ones plus the ones with sausages in them sometimes.

That verse in Lamentations is one of my favorites.

Wow, 16 pounds down! That's fabulous! Maybe I will give Crystal Light another shot. I never actually grew a sweet potato vine but I don't have a window over my kitchen sink, either. I wonder how it would do elsewhere? I also try hard to leave the bread alone so I just don't BUY the Sis's bread :) Have a great weekend!

I had forgotten about the sweet potato vines, those are so easy and so pretty!

Hey girl, hope you're doing well after your surgery and that it did what it was supposed to do for you. :o)

I tried Crystal Light years back when it first came out and didn't like it then, but I haven't tried it lately since I became a diabetic. I might give it another try soon. I sure could stand to lose some weight! Congrats on your weight loss!

I haven't seen that pepper. I'll have to look for it and try it for myself.

We're waiting on storms to move in. I hope they move out before bed time!

Have a great Friday and weekend, Miz Lesa. :o)

Love and hugs,

Diane

16 lbs! That's a great fave!

Oh I know about the rolls--I make homemade rolls using my grandma's recipe! I can't figure out how she stayed so thin! Her rolls are so so good!

#4 made me laugh right out loud. Those have got to be some great buns, no pun intended. LOL.

I love the scripture you shared. I hang on to it continuously.
