I am finally over being sick. Fingers crossed I don’t get it again. Winter is just around the corner now here in Iowa. I was enjoy the 70 degree weather in November but knew it wouldn’t last.

We get our dumpster on Friday so I get to start dumping things. I am hoping by cleaning the house and moving to a new one will bring new things. New things are what I need right now.  Thing in the Bond household are not that great so I need something to give, for the better.

I have so much emotional stress it’s unreal, which in turns makes me eat. LOL I am hoping by joining the new Shrinking Jeans challenge I will be able to stay on the straight and narrow and lose some of this weight i have gained.

Hope you all have a super week. Enjoy the recipe.

Healthy brown rice instead of boring white bread stuffing. Crisp apples complement the nutty flavor of the brown rice and bran.
