Fibroids, Ultrasound, MRI and UFE during a pandemic

This has been a two year journey so far I am not sure why I have been procrastinating on writing this. I think it’s very important to that woman talk about their experiences. I did not know what fibroids were until I was diagnosed with them.   I went to my doctor one day because it had been a few months since I had a period. Previous to that I was getting them every 2-4 weeks. There was no chance that I was pregnant and I had started a job where I was the only female in the office. In the past my cycle was influenced by other woman. I was not around any so I originally thought it was normal then I wondered if I was going into early menopause. I was in my forties and started my period when I was 10.  My doctor assured me that because I have hypothyroidism and low iron irregular cycles are normal. I have a good doctor so she decided to take a look at my pelvis she noticed it was swollen. Then she told me to go get an ultrasound. It is easy to get an ultrasound appointment here. I have ne

Sweet Potato/Yam Toast

Lately my social media has shown some recipes for sweet potato toast. I am still loving the toaster I received from field agent last year I wanted to try this.



sweet potato/yam toast 

I peeled a yam as I wasn't sure if the skin would burn and I was prepared to make soup with my ends but I ended up being able to cut it into four slices without any left over.



Round 1  I put the smallest two slices in the toaster and put it on the frozen setting.

Round 2  I put it back on regular toast I should have put it on frozen again

Round 3 I put it on frozen again

Round 4 I put it on bagel and it was done.

At Round 2 I decided to put the other two slices in the toaster oven. I spread some ghee and salt on them and put it in the toaster oven for 10 minutes on toast. It took another 10 minutes on toast and then another 5 minutes on broil for these two be done.

I have been eating avocado toast for twenty years long before its popularity. I spread some cream cheese and the toaster slices and added the avocado. This was very good really tasted like bread toast. It takes 4 rounds in the toaster on frozen setting for two slices so not the fastest method but I could definitely make this while getting ready and have this for breakfast as it is just a matter of pressing the button to toast.


The toaster oven version tasted completely different it tasted like a baked sweet potato it was really sweet and more like dessert. It is really strange how the cooking method changes the taste completely.    I recommend using a toaster over the toaster oven even though it requires a little more labour.

And day two with a sweet potato this time I just cut it in half and put it i the toaster on frozen and dark 4 times. It was good but I like the texture of the yam better.
