I had a to-do list that was 10 miles long today…and I managed to cross off every single item, and remember to eat. (To be completely honest, I put “eat breakfast” and “eat lunch” on the list, just to remember that I needed to make some time in my day for meals. Breakfast: This sour/yumminess … Continue reading

busy, busy bee

Whoo! I have been to almost every “school supply” place I could think of today – The Dollar Store, Beyond the Blackboard, Home Depot, Office Depot, and Wal-Mart – and I think I have everything I need for the upcoming year. However, in my quest for classroom items, I forgot to eat. Something that I … Continue reading

colors and hot chocolate

So, I’ve talked about how I like my food to be colorful. The same goes with my job… I mean honestly, who goes to a conference for two days, and then comes home to put those ideas into practice using markers and construction paper. This was my kitchen table late last night. This morning I … Continue reading


Yesterday, I talked about how everything I ate was so satisfying and filling, and today was the exact opposite. I couldn’t seem to get happy with  my food choices today. Additionally, since school has semi-started, I will most likely be reducing my food ramblings to one spectacular and all-inclusive post per day. This morning I … Continue reading

rainy day

It has been an unusually cloudy day here in Colorado, so it was a fabulous day for the great food I had. It always makes me feel warmer to eat well – and that is a very good thing in my book. Our writing workshop at school was (to my surprise) very good and it … Continue reading

back to school

I think I can safely say that this home made bread is now one of my favorite things on Earth. This smelled so good while it was baking that I couldn’t even wait 10 minutes after taking it out of the oven before I cut myself a little slice. It was so good that I … Continue reading

Yummy Monday

I love what I eat on the days that I go grocery shopping. There are just so many options when the fridge is full! Here is the salad I ate when I returned from the store. Lettuce, Boca burger, cucumber, olives,  and Parmesan cheese all dressed with salsa. Good eats. Additionally, I found this little puppy … Continue reading

A new color

My morning smoothies have been lacking in color. In fact…most of them are brown. Ick. I so I tried to enhance the color today – and the taste followed right along with it! Smoothie Ingredients: 1 kiwi ( furry coat and all) 5 strawberries 1 scoop chocolate protien powder 1 cup water handful of raw … Continue reading

late night

After a super fun night playing games at my sister-in-law’s house, I crawled into bed – so ready for sleep – at 2:30am. However, I was awakened at 4am by the sound of my puppy retching. Without going into details, (this is a food blog, after all) I was faced with an enormous clean-up that … Continue reading

such a breeze

Last night it was so hot in our house, we sat in Meeker’s truck bed trying to find “a breeze” until about 1am. It was unusually fun. Unusual because I am usually incapable of staying up past 10pm. So, we slept in this morning until around 9am and have been lazing around the house – … Continue reading
