My Crappy Situation

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell….and it’s making me crazy. I am all about wellness and self-care.  Herbal teas and supplements, acupuncture, meditation, rituals and routines, candles,  you name it.  However, all the “wellness” in the world is not helping me become well.  Which obviously has left me frustrated (and exhausted).  In this… Continue reading My Crappy Situation

Lemon Garlic Rainbow Chard

Hello All! So you already know I’m obsessed with my Farm Fresh to You CSA deliveries.  However, I did notice that despite the crazy variety of items that are offered, I was kind of sticking with the same basics.  So, I made a rule for myself.  Every other week, I was going to try something… Continue reading Lemon Garlic Rainbow Chard

As Sugar-Fest 2017 Comes to a Close…

If you read way back in my archives, you’ll learn the story of the time I started running and cut out most carbs, resulting in a 35 pound weight loss.  You’ll also learn the story where I developed a condition called pseudotumor cerebri.  One of the medications I was put on for that killed my… Continue reading As Sugar-Fest 2017 Comes to a Close…

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 4

Oh yeah, that menu planning thing again… Tonight is our monthly dinner with my bestie and it happens to be her birthday as well. The goddess wants Spaghetti Factory so the goddess shall have Spaghetti Factory.  I ain’t complainin’.  Tomorrow, we’re traveling up north a couple hours because momma wants a Christmas Tree with a… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner?

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 3

Holy Yes, it’s Friday! It’s been another week that I’ve basically sucked at menu planning.  Wait, no, I’m awesome at menu planning; it’s the shopping and execution that’s been giving me trouble.  So here’s how this week went down:  Sunday I made chili.  It was awesome.  Go me!  I peaked early.  Monday, I didn’t feel… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner?

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 2

So my last post was the instructions for the soup I ended up making Monday night.  Tuesday, I made the pork chops. Wednesday I did the French dips, which nobody ate because nobody was home, which is usually when I give up on menu planning.  Last night, Thursday, no one was hungry at dinnertime so… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner?

Cabbage Sausage Potato Soup

Ok so Monday I posted our menu for the week, then I immediately went home and jumped right off script.  In my defense, I had planned to make this soup on Sunday but we decided chili rellanos from the Mexican market deli sounded better so the soup didn’t happen.  Then, on Monday, the pit stop… Continue reading Cabbage Sausage Potato Soup

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 1

Ok I know there’s a saying about the “best laid plans…” but I’m in a frazzled state and can’t quite remember it right now.  For accountability’s sake, I was fully planning to menu plan on Thursday, grocery shop over the weekend and share our family’s menu plan with you today.  The menu plan is pretty… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner?

Fail to Plan or Plan to EAT!

Menu Planning Week One In Flylady-land, our habit for the month of November is menu planning.  I will admit, in the past, this is not a skill I’ve developed so I’m excited to give it another go.  My menu planning usually goes something like this: Do you see what the problem is?  I see it… Continue reading Fail to Plan or Plan to EAT!

There’s a Farmer’s Market on My Porch!

Healthy Eating Made Easy I bought myself a present I’ve been eyeing for years.  The gift of “farmer’s market delivery.”  That’s just what I’m calling it.  I joined a CSA called Farm Fresh to You. What on earth is a CSA, you ask?  It stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  I’m the community, supporting local agriculture. … Continue reading There’s a Farmer’s Market on My Porch!
