I don’t know why I’ve been thinking about broccoli salad all day, but I think I want to make one for a side dish for Christmas.  I haven’t really decided what we will be eating at this meal.  I’m just now starting to put the pieces together.  I’m sure Tiny Tot would prefer to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I didn’t know there were so many variations of a broccoli salad.  There are options with mayo and mayo substitutes.  I need to decide between grapes, blueberries, apples, and oranges.  There is a bacon and cheddar combination.  I didn’t think… View Post

Happy Friday, all!  By the time you’re reading this Friday will be almost over. It’s time for the Five Things Friday, but first I have to tell you some things. I wanted to put this up earlier but I’ve been dealing with the mom life (aka, a screaming infant) all day long. I should have know it was going to be a long day when she woke up at 4am.  I hope everyone is having a great week.  Here are five things I’m digging this week: 1. Willie and I are on a podcast.  It’s finally our turn for the… View Post

Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday focusing on the food I ate in Indianapolis at Fitbloggin.  I didn’t expect the food scene to be that amazing in Indy but there was some great stuff there.  Lots of different varieties of food to choose from so it was always an adventure.

I just haven’t been hungry. But I have all these food pictures so it’s only right for a What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW). On Thursday night, I threw together a stir fry. Willie made some really yummy food last week but on this particular night I wanted something else. This is what I threw together very quickly. Friday night I went to Salata to get a salad… View Post

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a great day. I’m not very fond of my birthday because it’s so close to 4th of July. People don’t really pay much attention to it. The birthday isn’t about getting the presents (even though it’s nice) but more about the people who are willing to celebrate it! I started off the day wearing two favorites: green and plaid…and more plaid. Look at the shoes! Fortunately for me I was able to celebrate my birthday with some important people in my life and the cards they sent me! There were a few people… View Post
