The last eight months in Salem Ohio before moving to Sarasota Florida I was in the Salem hospital five times for five surgeries.

Now my daughter Dr Pamela Drake has prescribed a new diet to help her now 94 year old mother have a better life. And……. much to my surprise and delight it is no less than miraculous !!

I still have my cup of hot coffee first thing in the morning. Although she didn’t prescribe my breakfast she did purchase this cereal for me.

So my breakfast each morning I have a cup of hot coffee, a bowl of that protein cereal and a bottle of Ensure chocolate drink as shown above.

Lunch is a plate of fresh raw vegetables with a dip.

It is broccoli, cauliflower, snow pod peas, baby carrots, celery, sometimes radishes. To this I add about ten small olives for the omega 3 that helps my heart keep ticking.

Most days Pamela makes a serving of scrambled eggs for me that gives me protein.

If Tracy bakes or fries chicken in the late afternoon I have a serving of chicken.

I can’t get through the day without desert. That can yybe chocolate chip cookies or chocolate cake from the freezer or Breyer strawberry ice cream with strawberries chopped up and added.

I also drink a bottle Bai or Zero vitamin water every day.

Would you like to see what I use to get around inside our home?

This three wheel walker makes getting around so easy.

But for outside the house I use this four wheeler with a padded seat for resting if I get tired,

So now you know the life of this 94 year old. Well, almost!!!!!

Besides reading lots of good books, but to keep my mind sharp, propped up with pillows in my bed, I play Spider Solitaire medium, and am up to 4026 straight done correctly.

My new diet has done the most to help my mind and is……………



I wanted new cookie sheets. But what a delightful surprise when I found this set of cookie sheets, at Bed Bath and Beyond store, made like the $20 cake pan in my story THE BEST $20 I EVER SPENT, two layers with air between the layers. The price for package of three cookie sheets $19.95. That is what I call a bargain!

And now notice the bumps in the bottom

You purchase Nestlies chocolate chips, chopped walnuts and it takes one half pound of butter per recipe.

The recipe is on the upper left corner on the back of the package

Ready for the oven

As soon as they have cooled to room temperature I pack them in vinyl containers and place them in the freezer.

Whoever wants a cookie, goes to the fridge, opens the freezer door, removes that container of chocolate chip cookies and helps themselves to a treat.

YUM! YUM! They are soooooooooooooo mouth watering delicious!
