That Harvest Bag Life

I’ve mentioned here in the blog about my delivery of vegetables and fruits that I receive weekly from a local farm and how much I’ve enjoyed my bounty which I have dubbed The Harvest Bag (that’s not actually what the farm place calls them, but it sounds like it should be called that, right?) But I have learned something…there is something…

Friday Free-for-all: LocalFarmOK

Earlier in the week I mentioned that I finally have access to a local farm harvest delivery service (localfarmok.com) – I received my first delivery last Friday and I am in love.   Here’s what I got for $26: Celery, lettuce, broccoli, portobello mushrooms, potatoes, blueberries, pears, mandarin oranges, and also not shown are 3 cucumbers that I gave to…

I’m rouxined

I used to hate cooking. It was ONE MORE THING on my to-do list of a lot of other mom-things. It was just not an enjoyable task, wich is surprising, given how much I love to eat. And when I was trying to diet cooking was even worse because then I had to cook TWO dinners: one disappointing meal for…

Food reactions, by golly!

The Trifecta, it eludes me.

Hoo are you? Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo

Hey y’all!  How was your weekend? Well, I don’t think we are quite ready for the Bass Pro circuit just yet, but Shawn and I did alright in the couples tourney on Saturday. We got 5th place out of 56 boats and won $400!  Not a bad way to spend a Saturday. The weather was GORGEOUS. Just absolutely perfect.  Well,…

Feeling a little beachy

Hey gang! So I decided that enough is enough and I need to change the way I eat. I go for the lazy option too often and I need to experiment a little. So for my first experiment, I’m going old skool and bustin’ out the South Beach Diet book. I’ve done SB before and had success with it –…
