A Snow Poem

A blanket of white covers the city. I still had to work, oh what a pity. The heater and fireplace will work on overdrive. A 1 million dollar heating bill just to survive. I’m really okay with the snow, as long as I’m inside. Put me behind the wheel and I’ll immediately go blind. I’m […]

Well, it’s all over. The tree has been put away, we’ve said our goodbyes to family and friends, we’ve eaten our weight in turkey and green bean casserole. In short, it was great! *taking a deep breath, and maybe burping* Time to move forward! Time to ramp up the whole grains, the power foods, the […]

I think it’s pretty obvious, but it’s comfort food week at the Weidner abode. Is this a bad thing? Ask my waistline. Is this a good thing? Ask my husband. Moroccan Chicken with Couscous: What it takes for 4: * 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs * 2 onions, thinly sliced * 3 carrots, diced * […]
