Dear friends, I cannot recommend this enough! Last year, I subscribed out of casual curiosity. Dr Kellee at the time was a new friend and business partner with my very good friend Renee. The title at first wasn't a big draw since I wasn't looking to lose weight. I already had that under control with... Continue Reading →
My son ate a pound of cow!
I know - that's a sensational title, but I couldn't resist. Thought I'd post a little burger review after gulping down a few of them this week! Since The Boy is off to Sweden this weekend for the holidays, I took him out on our last full night together for a makeshift Christmas dinner. I knew he... Continue Reading →
Late Friday beauty – is there anything better than cats with kids?
I had to capture this moment last night - Amber actually sat in someone elses lap while mine was available on the same sofa! And? They are BOTH smiling! Doesn't get better than that does it? After 10 days of winter break, the first work week of 2011 has been survived - barely! Each... Continue Reading →
Pasta Fagioli (or why my crock pot WAS too small!)
A couple of weeks ago one of the Dream Dinners that I made required some fajita beef to be slow cooked in a marianade (it was awesome). That reminded that, hey - I have a crock pot! The December menu at DD didn't turn me on and life is actually not so crazy at least... Continue Reading →
Seattle food photos
I've loaded all of the Seattle pictures onto my Flickr page for August Moms Gatherings. Seattle starts at the photo I posted here from the Phoenix airport. A few featured highlights: Pumpkins and peppers from the farmers market. In keeping with the fall theme 🙂 I toyed with putting that up in my blog banner... Continue Reading →
First, a food source (Hey, I haven't done TOO badly on the food theme for the month!): Eat Well Guide. During the audience question and answer session with Al Gore in Austin, FoodGal was lucky enough to ask a question about beef. Specifically whether he was aware that the beef industry is actually the biggest... Continue Reading →
Dream Dinner #3
Southwest steaks. What I prepared there was the spice mixture that I rubbed on the steaks before cooking them. The long grain rice package was part of a promotional give away from one of their food suppliers that was given to me as I left. So all I had to add was the salad with... Continue Reading →
Dream Dinner #2
As you can tell by the bites, I almost forgot to take a picture of this one!! Pulled pork sandwiches. The meat, sauce and bread provided by DD. Corn on the cob on sale at Vons. The suggested side dish was cole slaw, and I suppose a green salad would have been healthier, but the... Continue Reading →
Food challenge for the week
I spent this past week eating a fair amount of junk - bbq at work on the 3rd, just about everything on the 4th at the beach house etc. etc. This week though, I can control things pretty well because I have the dinners already prepared and I bring my own food to work for... Continue Reading →
Move 2008 – Week 27 + more food!
IF my weekly goal was 2 - 30 min aerobic routines and 3 strength routines, I would meet it every week. But I should be doing 5 - 20 min routines so I keep falling short. I have caught up enough at work to be able to join the daily walks so that will help.... Continue Reading →
