doin’ the endive jive

Still doing well sticking to the whole30 plan…a whole 3 days in. ;-) I am going to have to swap today’s dinner with tomorrow’s…I didn’t quite get it together to do a slow cooker meal this morning. Also I want to cook that salmon sooner rather than later. I’m paranoid about it sitting too long. […]

So much cooking yesterday! I have lots of food for the next several days. I made the Bolognese Sauce from the JJ Virgin Cookbook, which turned out pretty good. Next time I think I’ll add tomato sauce so it’s a bit more saucy and sassy. (The recipe only called for diced tomatoes and a little […]

no more italian

no more italian

No more Italian food…well, restaurant-style Italian. I went to lunch with the Spanish team yesterday. We went to Macaroni Grill. Normally I would have loved it. But when you aren’t having gluten or dairy… that kind of limits the choices at a pasta joint. I decided to splurge and got the steak and potatoes and […]

So, did anyone who subscribes to the email version of the blog get yesterday’s post? It didn’t show up in my email. I’m wondering if that’s because I had too many photos… curious. Anyway, one day of super planner planning seems to have gone well! I quite enjoyed checking off little boxes. So satisfying. :) […]

my funny valentine

This week’s art journal theme is Valentines. Which is kind of funny that it was assigned for the week after Valentine’s day. :) This actually started as a sketch to play around with the new pencils. They were going to be singing Christmas carols. Why? Dunno. I drew a scarf and there it went. Then I […]

I’m realizing I have no idea who the black-haired VIP is in the illustration. Oops. L->R Adams, ???, Jefferson, Franklin, Hancock, Washington. Just in case you couldn’t tell. I’m not one for caricatures. :) Yesterday I mentioned that I didn’t have any reaction to eating gluten. Well, I take that back. I was waiting for […]

A big shoutout and thanks to Lauralyne for coming to my office yesterday for a lunchtime walk. Thanks! Super fun to get out and chat while walking. It also was helpful to get me to go out, I might have found an excuse not to otherwise. ;-) Officially four full days sugar free (this being the […]

gadget time

gadget time

Yesterday was kitchen gadget time. My ol’ pal LeAnn told me about the super veggie spiralizer a while back. I picked one up sometime in December and finally got it out and used it last night! Thought I’d start off with some easy zucchini noodles. I dropped them into some tomato sauce.   And then […]

meal planning freestyle

meal planning freestyle

I learned today that puce is actually cranberry mauve-ish sort of color. I thought it was a slimy yellowy-green color, but huh. There ya go. So the not-puce-colored soup was from last night’s dinner. I got home and didn’t feel like making the chicken thing I had planned, so went freestyle and put together a […]
