but the church auction is tonight, so that's something to look forward to. I will not be buying any of the desserts at the bake sale, however. I'll probably throw a couple of bucks into the money basket and save the calories. Have a grea... Read more

I love the way our flower garden looks. So I do the work. I do not love working in the garden - there, I said it. So many folks enjoy their garden work, there must be something wrong with me, right? I do the work, but I don't love the w... Read more

There was so much going on this weekend, DH and I barely had time to blink. All food events - all attended, appropriate amounts of food consumed and enjoyed, and tracked. Now, for the long, busy week! Phew! I'm tired just thinking ab... Read more

Saturday, April 09, 2011      2 comments

I don't know what's up these past 2 months, but somehow the guilt/food response I have known all of my life has not been rearing it's ugly head lately. I went to the local buffet with DH and DS and enjoyed a reasonable amount of several ite... Read more

Our closest Trader Joe's is on the other side of Milwaukee, and I have not gone often for that reason. Today, my sister Patty and I spent the morning there reading labels and getting inspired to cook great-tasting, healthful things. After ... Read more

I'm really happy for him, and us. He's excited about this new opportunity and the new company seems like they already appreciate his talents. (He's an actuary - math/statistics/ computers, etc.) Paying for COBRA was quite draining, and I'... Read more
DH is Wii skiing and I'm smiling

The party was phenomenal! Our best yet, and many requests to offer it for next year's church auction. (Very flattering.) Even though my guests each ate their fill of the many dips, spreads, cheeses and sweets we had available, there are... Read more
