Tuesday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.

Lemonade with additives, like peaches or strawberries, or blueberrirs, or mangos. I try to get the fresh or frozen fruit and crush/blend some in, then leave some chunked in ike icecubes. I add lemon chunks too sometimes.
I don't do it real often, and sometimes not more than lemonaide mix and a can of crushed pineapple.

I would love to have recipes of your favorite smoothie recipes. I got a blender about two weeks ago. I tried to crush the ice first and everything, but it doesn't crush the way that it's supposed to. I was wondering if you all have any ideas on what I could do.

Jerome is getting backpay from SSI. I can't believe. Finally something good. Anyway. Do any of you have any advise? I'm planning on getting a better blender, anybody want to share what kind/brand they have? I know this is off subject, but I just couldn't resist.
