My mother-in-law taught me to make galumpki's (stuffed cabbage rolls) before we even got married. Her way was pretty traditional in the Polish manner (though she would always correct her sons saying she was Ukrainian, not Polish). You need a fairly large head of cabbage, so you get large enough leaves to stuff. The number … Continue reading How to make Galumpki’s

Today I am bringing you all a little comfort food to help ease the January blues.

I love this post. It suits me to a T. My rheumatoid arthritis is just such a disease. I don't "look sick". But I may have a hard time walking, especially after getting out of a vehicle. I will use the handicap stall in the ladies room, so that I can hold the handrails to … Continue reading The Spoon Theory

As a veterinary technician I learned to abbreviate a lot of things. Like any other industry, veterinary medicine has it's own language. And an alphabet of acronyms for all the things handled in a veterinary hospital. Vaccines are one of the most basic things you can do for your pet. Each letter in the alphabet … Continue reading Pet Vaccines Explained
