Take control of your mani/pedi with Beetles gel color

Beetles Gel Color Starter Kit

Now, I can wear my sandals again!๐Ÿ˜Š

I ordered the Beetles gel nail polish kit from Amazon
so I can be in control of when my nails are polished.

"We can no longer depend on a standing appointment due to the volatility of Pandemic life. And, I don't want to become ill as it does not take much."

The kit was not difficult to use the instructions are clear. I paid a fraction of the cost of what I normally would pay for a mani/pedi. I chose the nude color to complete a refined look. Follow the link and choose your color. It comes with a UV light, basecoat, color, and topcoat.

Best Shoe repair #ShoeGoo


 These distressed leather purple mules purchased from TJ Maxx are over 20 years old. I guess it was time for them to fall apart however, it would have been nice to have not been wearing them at the time. Good thing I had some flip-flops in the trunk of my car! I'm using Shoe Goo to repair them.

Best Quinoa (Keen-wha) Fried Rice dish

Starting a plant-based diet doesn't have to be scary. Just do it. Go to the links and have what you want, sent to your home so that shopping doesn't have to be confusing or tiresome. Shop here and you will be able to read each label before you buy using your computer's magnifying tool instead of guessing in the store. You will be happy with the results.

I use quinoa instead of rice in fried rice recipes to save on carbs and up the protein content.
I need to watch my carbohydrate intake so rice is not a go-to for me. I use quinoa instead. Once sprouted, my body recognizes the ancient grain as a vegetable.

I like mung bean sprouts and alfalfa sprouts in my quinoa. I also put yellow onion, egg, green onion edamame peas, napa cabbage, and some type of seafood. I use prepackaged fried rice seasoning and oyster sauce to make the flavor just right. Finishing off with sweet and sour sauce and low sodium soy sauce—mmm mmm good. Tastes even better the next day. I finish off the meal with a SodaStream sugar-free soda.

Best Plant-based meal: Roasted Cauliflower with Cheesy White Sauce


You don't have to use grain-based pasta. You can use a tool to make noodles or ribbons of zucchini, squash, or another hard veggie. There is even pre-made veggie-based pasta. Make sure to follow the links to find what you need to make a meal. Angel hair pasta in cheese sauce

roasted cauliflower head with veggies in cheese sauce Plant-based meals are all the rage and everyone is giving it a try to see if they like it. Click on the links to have everything delivered!

I watched a video of a woman who roasted a whole, gigantic head of cauliflower and poured a delicious, white, creamy cheese sauce over it. I knew I had to recreate it as best I could. She said it was a good transition into her plant-based lifestyle. Me too!❤๐Ÿ”ฅ
I used turmeric in this because I like the anti-inflammatory benefit of the spice. Use veggie noodles in place of angel hair pasta for an even lighter plant-based meal. 
I used canola oil but olive oil or butter can be substituted. I used red shiraz because that is what I had on hand but white wine is suggested. I used  1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, white and black pepper, flour, olive oil or butter, one cup soy milk (lactose issues) one tablespoon (optional) salt and pepper to taste.  Make a paste of flour and oil and cook for two minutes then add the milk or heavy cream, chicken broth, wine and remaining ingredients or follow instructions for a basic bechamel sauce.  
Add 1/2 8 ounce wheel of brie—rind and all if preferred—1/2 package of cream cheese, one cup chicken broth and 1/4 to 3/4 cup mild cheddar or cheese of choice. Explore and find your flavor profile. Pour over veggies and serve with pasta and or seafood of choice.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹

Top three herbs that get me through the stress of living this pandemic life

During a lengthy discussion about mood-altering substances, Ashawagandha was mentioned. I use it to slow me down after drinking too much caffeine. It was suggested by a listener during my podcast on Stereo.com/@imadeamesss, that I should only use a teaspoon after saying it makes me sleepy. 
Ashwagandha is an evergreen shrub that grows in Asia and Africa. It is commonly used for stress like the stress experienced during this pandemic life!  Ashwagandha contains chemicals that might help calm the brain, reduce swelling, lower blood pressure, and alter the immune system, according to WebMD. Ashawagandha is considered an adaptogen, which is believed to help the body resist physical and mental stress. Some of the conditions it is used for include insomnia, aging and anxiety. 
Also, Tulsi is another herb I use to deal with stress. According to werywellhealth.com Tulsi is considered an adaptogenic herb that is thought to help adapt the body to stress and boost energy. Tulsi is used for anxiety, stress, fatigue and may be used in herbal formulations to treat asthma, bronchitis, colds and the flu. 
Bacopa or Brahmi powder is used for improved brain function in cases like Alzheimer's disease, memory and thinking skills deficit, anxiety and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to WebMD. Besides helping your brain work more efficiently, I originally purchased Bacopa powder to use on my hair for growth. I learned later how good for the body bacopa tea was overall and the more you take it the more thinking clarity you will experience.

How to get burnt food out of #InstantPot, sign up for #AmazonFresh


I made a great big pot of fresh greens prepared in my Instant Pot. We are a plant-based meal household finally and we had leftovers because we don't like greens that much. Anyway, I kept reheating the greens and eventually, all of the water boiled out of the pressure cooker and the once healthy, fresh greens became burnt and stuck to the bottom of the pot.

I used a leftover dishwasher pack dissolved in hot tap water to the soak. It took 10 to 15 minutes for the stuck-on food to loosen and allow me to scrape it out. I want you to try this the next time burnt on food is an issue. Click on the highlighted text to order what you need to make a big, healthy pot of mixed greens from Amazon Fresh. I get compensated if you sign up. There is a disclosure on the blog. It is how I supplement my income. Thanks.

Facial and hair steamers help you get through this #Pandemiclife

I started to get serious about facial skincare and bought a facial steamer from Amazon. My pores have never been smaller. Buy My Amazon Steamer by following this link. Facial Steamers help by opening my pores and allowing me to clean my face deeper and more thoroughly. I got a facial last year and the woman washed my face about four or five times so I started doing that and got great results. She washed my face under the steam.

A New Thing: Imadeamesss.com relaunch

This website is old Internet real estate--more than 10 years. Now I am going back to what I used to do which is write musings and whatnot. I have a podcast on Anchor and Stereo where I do whatever the heck I please and it is not for the faint of heart. I'm not even dropping links here.

I've started a think tank on Instagram and Twitter. I'm looking for qualified interested people please join me there. @itisplaytimeforme on Instagram and @ThinkTank2022 on Twitter.

New blog, new me. I have young adults, not children anymore so I have to re-learn the Mom role!

I've started jotting down a few ideas for a new novel, working title: Groan (yup!) I'm

thinking of the dialogue a little bit every day.

Oh, yeah Luxe True Soap website is no more. No one I know cares for luxury homemade soap for sometimes $10 or more per bar so I get to keep it for myself๐Ÿ˜…
