Flying by the seat of my pants.
Monday, September 14, 2015      5 comments

My M.O. for nutrition/diet/feeding the family, has always been a fly by the seat of my pants kind of situation. If you asked me what was for dinner at 5 p.m on most days I would not know. I do keep a lot of staples available to make food so I... Read more

I can't help but think of my mom. Starting a diet on Monday was her thing, back as far as I can remember. There was a picture of her standing with her arms over her belly, really horrible picture, frowny faced, my dad had taken it, she total... Read more
