"HAPPY THANKSGIVING"

1. Walking will make you Fit as a Fiddle?

Does the bed have a firm grip on you as you try to get up in the morning? Do you get out of breath every time

you jump to a conclusion? In other words, does feeling "sluggy"describe you?

How cruel to identify ourselves as the guilty culprits! But not so.... because if we got ourselves into this mess,

then we can get ourselves out.

Look out! All of this technology we've cushioned ourselves with is sucking the very life force out of us. Video

games, TV, and the infinite Internet, have left us qualifying only for some "Olympics of the Index Finger."

The rest of our bodies have as much muscle tone as a floppy jelly fish.

Those two letters T and V have spawned a whole host of secondary evils. TV trays, TV dinners, microwavable

meals and food packaged with enough chemicals and preservatives to outlive us all are fattening us up nicely.

Have you ever found a big chunk of processed cheese that fell behind the stove a year ago? It looked pretty

much the same as when you first brought it home from the store, right? Real food with nutrients would've

turned into a living Chia pet or something else resembling a life form.

Or here's a good one: leave a box of ice cream sandwiches out on the counter overnight. (Personally, I'm a little

suspicious of ice cream that doesn't melt.) If your snacks are chemicals, you'll always be hungry. Your body

needs real food to burn for exercise.

So stand up! Right now! Lift your body off the couch. Now walk to the door and outside for a walk. You'll feel

energized when you get back. Do it again tomorrow. Now get your kids energized. They will be motivated to go

with you if you explain about the possibility of fresh air out

there.....some of it with oxygen.

Now's the time to get active about getting active. Get involved in your child's school's sports offerings. Become

a proponent for Physical Education classes everyday with after school football, swimming, basketball, or

anything at all to keep them moving. How about volunteering as an assistant coach in an after-school sport?

Your child will love being able to participate with you and schools always need parental assistance in

after-school activities.  Sometimes kids will do what you tell them to. But they'll really be taking notice of what

you are actually DOING and do it too. Share yourself with your children and it will create a healthier, happier

family bond. Grownups and kids can talk, walk, sing and laugh together.

Just a minute ... just a minute.... I think we're getting a pulse........

4. RECIPE :

 Beef Empanada Potpie soul-warming.

Cooking spray

3 1/2 cups diced baking potato (about 1 1/4 pounds)

1 cup chopped onion

1 1/4 pounds ground sirloin

1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon salt

Dash of black pepper

2 large garlic cloves, minced

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup beer

1 (10.5-ounce) can beef consommè

1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green pepper and onion, drained

2 tablespoons chopped pitted green olives

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1 (10.6-ounce) box refrigerated garlic breadsticks

Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare filling, heat a large Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add potato and onion;

cover and cook 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add beef and next 6 ingredients (beef through garlic); cook,

uncovered, 7 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with

a knife. Add flour to pan; cook 1 minute. Gradually add beer, consommè, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Remove

from heat, and stir in olives and vinegar.

Spoon mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Unroll both dough portions (do not separate

dough into breadsticks); roll dough together, forming a 12 x 10-inch rectangle. Place dough on top of beef mixture,

pressing to edge of dish. Cut 5 slits in top of crust to allow steam to escape. Gently brush 1 tablespoon garlic spread

that is packaged with breadsticks over crust; reserve remaining spread for another use.

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly around the edges. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Yield: 6 servings
