TMH Living Well: Regular check-ups, exercise increase chance of breast cancer survival

Getting diagnosed with breast cancer — any cancer — is scary. It’s hard to avoid thoughts of “what if,” especially when there is a lag between diagnostic appointments or procedures. Yet, breast cancer is survivable for many, and getting regular check ups increases those odds tremendously. Early detection often means early stage — and early stage means treatable.

One early morning, a couple of weeks ago, Charlotte called me and said that she had an idea for my column. Charlotte gets up early, and that particular morning she was waiting for it to be daylight so that she could use the natural light to choose the colors of fabric she was using to make a quilt. One thing led to another, and pretty soon Charlotte was thinking about the time we all spend “waiting.”

Over a Cup of Coffee: Making a frosted meat loaf

This week’s recipe comes from Geraldine Coleman of Craig. She sent me a packet of recipes the other day, which included a recipe for “Best Ever Meat Loaf” and then how you can make a “Frosted Meat Loaf” from it. I love meat loaf, and this recipe is a little different because it calls for cream of mushroom soup. I haven’t made it yet because I discovered that I don’t have any mushroom soup in the pantry. Next week!
