Buckling down!

May 4, 2011

Oh boy did I eat this past week!  We were first in Florida to visit Mr. Spice’s parents, then we were in Kansas for a friend’s wedding and to see my parents.  Lots and lots of good eats were had, and I know the scale is showing it! After chowing down on lots of home-cooked […]

A Season of Convenience

March 15, 2011

That sounds like a romance novel title, doesn’t it? 🙂 As you know, it’s tax time and that’s when I do my usual disappearing act.  I also rely more on convenience foods because it’s just one less thing to have to think about.   I make no apologies for it, this is what works for Mr. […]

I am ridiculously behind on my blog posts, but the goal is to catch up as much as possible this week!

Lunch on fire!

November 2, 2010

Now you know I like my food spicy.  What this does NOT mean is that I like to blitz my tastebuds.  No no.  I like a little heat and zing, but I don’t like to be crying through my meal. This lunch certainly did the trick. I made a sandwich with Boar’s Head new Jerk […]

Lunch date at EVOS

October 27, 2010

What do you do when lunch plans with a friend fall through? Guilt trip your husband into meeting you instead? Really? That’s exactly what I do too! I was supposed to meet my friend at EVOS, which serves “healthy” fast food, meaning nothing is fried and the ingredients are supposed to be more wholesome.  We […]

Bulking Up

October 25, 2010

My lunch, that is. I go through phases where I buy frozen meals for lunch at work. I am currently in the middle of one of them.  I learned a long long time ago, that unless I add extra veggies to those meals, they won’t last me long.  I’ve also learned to not eat out […]

Pimp my lunch

August 20, 2010

Lunch is so much more satisfying when it’s visually appealing. You eat first with your eyes, as they say. I go through periods where I find myself relying on frozen meals more than I’d like. One of the problems I have with them is that they just look so pitifully skimpy once you’ve heated up […]
