Because we need a little Laughter…13 Amazing Food Hacks


My niece, Kaitlin, posted this on Facebook…and it’s really funny.  Now, since I am a very funny person (so I’ve been told, but I also kinda know it), and funny knows funny, when I find something that really makes me LOL, Howl, Snort, Giggle and think of all the people I want to share this with, I immediately think…Now that’s a blog.  You know, to get it “out to the masses”…or my 1000+ daily views.  Of course this doesn’t mean that all 1000+ daily views will see this, but it will be seen by the 20 or so people who loyally read my blog.  And that makes me happy.  We always need happy.

This also makes me happy.  13 Amazing Food Hacks.  


I know what you’re thinking- how could there possibly be any food hacks that I do not yet know? But read on and I think you will find that these are some you have never seen before. You will be amazed at how these simple food hacks can make your life easier and better!

10. No time to boil water? You must be incredibly busy if you don’t have time for that. I think you might be overextending yourself. Take a look at your schedule and see if there are some things you could re-prioritize. You may be headed for a burn-out.

Funny know funny.  Love your post, Karen.  Sometimes the most obvious is the funniest!
While we are on funny, something came across my Facebook stream by the Huffington Post, about “bloating”.  Of course, I had to glance at it…thinking that just perhaps, it wasn’t a summer of Stella’s, but something “medical” going on.  So, in reading the post, I realized, the comments made, were far more entertaining than this “article”, which I’m including here, for the curious.  10 ways to get rid of bloating.
Here are a few comments, that made me really, really giggle.

*There are bigger issues in the world than bloating. This “news source” has become a cesspool of mental trash.

*No. 1: Don’t die on the side of the road.

*Jeff, shove the apple and your comment straight up your a**. Constipation and IBS are a very complex and EXTREMELY frustrating thing for a lot of WOMEN, even those of us that eat plenty of fiber.


*what’s this picture have to do with bloating?

I am not poking fun at constipation, bloating, or IBS…I just find it hilarious, that people actually comment on these posts, some serious and some not so serious.  And those “not so serious”, always makes my day!  Plus, the above picture of the lovely woman looking longingly in the camera, while wearing a light sweater, indeed, has Nothing to do with bloating.  #stockphotos
