I’m Cheap.

We decided to par down our grocery bill lately. This can be difficult for me, since I like to make a wide variety of foods and they’re not usually boring or repetitive. I like the challenge of cooking complexly. So I came up with a menu for the week and thought I’d share, just in […]

Walking Work Out!

Here’s a great (read evil and mean) walking workout for a treadmill. If your elevations are different, adjust to what you can. Elevation at a 3 is just slightly uphill. A 12 is pretty steep. Good luck!

Keep your speed at 3.5…if you’re already in shape keep it at 4.

0-5 min…elevation at 3.

5-7 […]

I Started a Workout Group!

A couple weeks ago I invited a friend to come work out with me…I need motivation. And if I know someone is coming over, it’s motivation to push myself and give her a good workout. I get a sick kick out of making someone sore. 😀 Really, that’s when I know I did a good […]

Attempting to Compost (need help!)

So, since we have a garden spot now, we thought it might be a good idea to learn how to compost. I’m not talkin’ about “having a huge pile of banana peels on the counter collecting flies until they decay and I can throw them into the ground already falling apart” composting. But I don’t […]

New Recipe! (very good)

Last week I went to cook dinner, but decided I didn’t want what I had planned. So I just threw something together and it turned out sooo good!!

Turkey & Portabellos in Garlic-Wine Sauce

a pound of turkey, cubed 3 portabello mushrooms, cubed 1/2 c cooking sherry 1/4 to 1/2 c of flour dash of […]

Help an Animal Page!

My sister sent me an email and I decided to post about it. But, after some thought, I decided to make it a permanent page. That way we could help more animals.

Please go check it out (on the left)!

“By Their Fruits…”

This is one of the great things about my church. Salt Lake is already sending help in to the Gulf Coast, even before the hurricane hits.

Most people don’t know it because the church doesn’t announce it to the public. We don’t say, “Hey, look at us! We’re sending trucks in!” It happens quietly….without fanfare….without […]

Something Good for Dinner!

A while ago, I found a food blog that had a dinner plan for portobello burgers and sweet potato fries. I asked for the seasoning on the fries (cuz I’ve never done the fries before) and she posted the recipe. It looks so good! This is our dinner tonight. So much healthier than a beef […]

Just Say “No!”

I was reading a great blog today that had a post that sounded so familiar!

I don’t know a mom who, at the beginning of the school year, vows to do it all. We want to be friends with all the other moms, we want to make sure the kids have everything they need before […]

I am “They.”

A new acquaintance of ours recently told us he has a friend who’s favorite saying is “I am “they.” Brilliant!…I thought.

“They” are telling us how to raise our kids. “They” are tearing down the rain forests. “They” are causing pollution. “They” are causing our children to grow up faster, with clothes, music, peer pressure. […]
