All You Can Eat Sushi

May 27, 2008

I took the kids to a new Sushi & Hibachi place tonight thinking it would be a fun thing to do to try something new, give my newly vegetarian daughter some new food options and maybe give me a chance to use the little Japanese I know. I was able to do this because my [...]


Bad Meal of the Day - Breakfast Cereal

May 15, 2008

I don’t usually eat cereal for breakfast but the last couple of days were exceptions. I needed something fast, and having a bowl of cereal with skim milk sounded like it would hit the spot. How bad can a bowl of cereal be? How about 640 calories. How’s that, you ask? Well, first you start [...]

May 10, 2008

Since I have been as sick as a dog the last few days I thought I would post the puppy picture that has been requested a few times since I mentioned we got a new puppy. Maddie is a Chow Chow/Corgi mix and is about 11 months old. She has a really calm disposition - [...]


Bad Meal of the Day - Subway Tuna Sub

May 7, 2008

A comment on Mike’s blog got me thinking about some things I need to do differently, one of which is improve my logging of meals. I’m finding that really hard to do, but I know I need to do it. So to start with I am going to try to write about the worst meal [...]

Arms of Jello

May 5, 2008
