I noticed that I slouch all the time! Honestly at work I'm almost always leaning over my desk or propping my head on my elbows. It's not good for my back, makes me look worse off than I am, and makes me feel tired. So I decided to make a new ... Read more

We went to the BBQ Festival last night. But it wasn't what we expected or more likely we were a day early. Instead of the banquet of bbq tasting I expected, it was more of a concert for those cooking through the night. We walked through the m... Read more

Last night we had a quick dinner of frozen pizza. In the past I would have eaten my plate, had seconds, and very possibly ate another piece as I put the small remainder in the fridge. I had read a blog about chewing your food to the consistanc... Read more

Hubby had been asking for Cheesy Chicken Speghetti recently. I had been ignoring him b/c I didn't want to figure the calorie count from our old recipe. Basically it was velvetta, chicken, rotel, and some cream soups. No veggies and fat galore... Read more
