Aargh Retraction! :-)

Another throwback blogpost! I have to do it.  I have to retract my “Aargh” of the other day.  I was so very frustrated that the Greek yogurt that I tried to make didn’t set up like I wanted it to…and yet, what I thought was a horrible flop has turned into a really great thing! … Read More Aargh Retraction! 🙂

Aargh & Almond Butter

Another throwback blog post!  🙂 I’m falling down on the job.  I suppose being this many weeks (37.5-ish) pregnant allows me a little leeway, and yet, I hate not sticking to something I’ve set.  Oh well.  To quote The Princess Bride, “Get used to disappointment!” The “Aargh” of this week?  I have tried to make my… Read More Aargh & Almond Butter

Food for Thought

I like food. Truth…Bottom line…Unequivocally so…Period. I am not one of those “eat to live” kind of people.  Not that I “live to eat,” but good food is just that — good…and I definitely believe it is a gift from God.    I try not to become obsessive about it.  Really.  But a girl’s gotta eat…as do… Read More Food for Thought

Making Yogurt — Really! (in a slow cooker!)

A throwback blog post! Yesterday I mentioned how we WERE spending a lot each week just on yogurt…nearly $2 a day.  It doesn’t sound like much, but that’s almost $60 a month — just on yogurt!  That’s a decent chunk of our grocery budget, so I knew that we (I) was going to have to do something… Read More Making Yogurt — Really!

Let Good Enough Be Good Enough

Teacher’s Pet. Over-achiever. Perfectionist. Ever had those words thrown in your direction or thrown them at yourself?  Yep.  Me, too.  I was the one in school who could not get a “B,” much less a “C.”  The thought of getting a “B” or “C” was cringe-worthy indeed.  I could not let good enough be good… Read More Let Good Enough Be Good Enough

The First Post

I’ve blogged on several different sites, and I have discovered that the first post is definitely the most intimidating!  Here I am, putting myself out into cyberworld and hoping that someone reads what I have to share, and reads with a gracious eye that is less critical than I am of myself.  It almost feels… Read More The First Post
