Menu Planning: Stepping outside my comfort.

My favorite of the week… Garlic Lover’s Roast Beef http://www.skinnytaste.com/2010/10/garlic-lovers-roast-beef.html This was actually my first time ever cooking a roast beef.  I was very intimidated by the thought of it and wouldn’t you know that it was one of the easiest recipes ever!  Well that is of course if you remember to take it out […]

Venturing down the path of cloth diapering

Some people may think I have lost my mind. Here I am on baby number 4 debating cloth diapering. But have I really? I’ve always been curious about cloth diapering but the yuck factor stopped me. Well by baby number 4…I’ve seen it all, smelled it all, touched it all and even worse…worn it all. […]

Menu planning: A little bit of sweets

Naked Turkey Bruschetta Burger http://www.skinnytaste.com/2013/07/naked-turkey-bruschetta-burger.html This was my favorite for the week! The turkey burger recipe itself was good.  The bruschetta on its own was good.  Together…so very good! PENNE ROSA WITH SHRIMP http://backtoherroots.com/2012/03/20/penne-rosa-with-shrimp/ This was the hubby’s favorite for the week! Sadly I could not take part in this one due to the nausea […]

Fit Prego: Yes!

It’s really amazing how people react when you say that you’re still running.  So many look at you with amazement and yet there are still people that look at you with negativity.  I feel no need to respond to the negatives.  I only look at the positive and say yes!  Yes I am still going! […]

Menu Planning: Getting good at this!

Grilled Pesto Chicken and Tomato Kebabs & Pesto-Topped Grilled Summer Squash http://www.skinnytaste.com/2013/06/grilled-pesto-chicken-and-tomato-kebabs.html http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/pesto_topped_grilled_summer_squash.html This was my absolute favorite this week! It was light and fresh tasting.  I was actually able to eat everything off my plate.  (Becoming a rarity in the third trimester lol!)  Believe it or not this was our first time with pesto.  I […]
