In my family, I am the entertainer. What that means is that anytime there is a gathering, I am the one who gets everyone together and prepares a meal fit for a king. I spend hours pouring over recipes and creating the perfect menu. I check with my guests for dietary restrictions to make sure I offer them something they can eat, and then I grab my daughter and we start preparing the meal. This year, Easter will be no different, but I am going to be adding Kraft Fresh Take to my cooking recipes.

When I was 15 I started smoking. Back in the 80′s, you were just not cool if you didn’t smoke. Little did I know when I lit up that first cigarette that I would have an 11 year battle with nicotine hanging over my head. For those 11 years, I smoked a lot — but somewhere around the age of 25 or 26, when I started going to church — I decided that I didn’t want to smoke anymore.

I just finished a 24 hour bout of the stomach flu. I woke up early Monday morning around 3 am with my stomach rumbling and barely made it to the bathroom before emptying last night’s supper into the toilet. At first I thought it might be a case of food poisoning, but the later on in the day it went, I started running a fever, so I was pretty sure I had the stomach bug or flu. This is definitely one of those times I could have used the Walgreens Health Care Clinic Nashville.
