Today is Monday, June 9th
Meet my friend today:
Friend # 7 “What I learned from Jules”
Julie is one strong lady and has a heart of gold. Always willing to lend a hand or go for a walk.
Lesson: Walk when you can, particularly with a friend.
I met Julie in a concession stand while volunteering for our daughters basketball team. Together we served some interesting concessions such as the Walking Taco and Suzanne’s Peanut Butter Power Balls. We made a lot of money for the team! Julie has taught me there is a time for everything, and her advice is always timely. We also learned to walk as often as possible and that anyone can lose weight if they walk twice a day (we most certainly lost the pounds). Jules moved to Arizona and whenever I get out there, we go for a walk and talk. I was just visiting Phoenix last weekend and we met up for a hike!
Tip or quote of the Day:
“You’ll do well to get others to walk with you, and help you find and keep perspective. We are not made to do this life alone” – David Powlison
The Walking Taco
Make taco meat and place in a huge crock pot or electric roasting pan.
Buy cases of cheese Doritos in single servings.
Buy large sour cream containers and giant salsa jars.
- Crush Doritos in the bag and turn on its side. Cut open with scissors.
- Add hot meat on top of the crushed Doritos and add lettuce.
- Top with sour cream and salsa and put a fork in it.
- They walk away eating the taco out of the bag and then throw it away.
