Packing School Lunches – Welcome to the Bento Way

I had the same school lunch every day throughout the entire decade of the 70's: a sandwich of deli meat or PB&J, a small bag of chips, a Little Debbie variety, and I had to drink that awful school milk which was never cold enough. Ever. My only complaint (which I never voiced) was that… Continue reading Packing School Lunches – Welcome to the Bento Way

Mom’s Squash Casserole

It's Easter Sunday...and COLD here in North Florida. Luckily it won't last long and we are back to 90 by Thursday. I am hosting Easter dinner for my family and one of the menu items is my mom's squash casserole. Yum! I have no idea where this recipe came from but it has to be… Continue reading Mom’s Squash Casserole

Strawberry Jam Season

We took the boys strawberry picking for the first time and it was amazing! It's sometimes difficult to find an activity that all of them can do together just because they are so spread out in age. We ended up with about ten pounds of these beauties. Now what? Logan and Riley LOVE strawberries but… Continue reading Strawberry Jam Season

Totally doable. I think it will be a good prep for the sprint I am… Continue reading Putting It All Together: Swim-Bike-Run

Quiche on the Go

I am a lover of quiche for many reasons, but right now I'm especially loving the fact I am taking it to work with me! I'm trying to shed a few pounds and I'm also training for my first sprint triathlon; quiche is a great source of protein and I've made mine crustless (sad face)… Continue reading Quiche on the Go

I Run. Sort of.

It was run day. I had to go to the office and work a little first. Blah. However, when I was done there I was like a kid at recess time as I busted out the door to go for a run. Wha???? Whoa! That was me! Me? Clearly my body has been invaded by… Continue reading I Run. Sort of.
