It’s Meatless Monday! Actually, I don’t even know what that is. Is it like a camp? Are there sign-up forms? Do we wear neon pink Umbro shorts with oversized No Fear t-shirts tucked into them? Because I still have mine. Although, mine say “His-Bro” because it was church camp. Yep. I gotta say though, I […]

What started out as a sinless, innocent puppy love back in my college years, hath quickly and destructively grown into a full-blown, no holds barred, unmanageable, MUST HAVE OR DAH, injurious addiction.

You’re probably reading the title of this post, rubbing your eyes, re-reading it and thinking, “The girl’s gawn coo-coo. Who eats chili IN AUGUST?” Well hold on now! I need to explain something. For the most part of yesterday, it felt like fall. Delicious, crisp, I-can-go-outside-and-not-die-from-the-heat fall. The temperatures stayed right around 66, steady rain […]

How many times have you read the word “tempeh” and thought, “riiight, that has to be a typo.” Or how many times have you heard someone say the word “tempeh” and you’re all, “excuse me, temp what with what hay?” Or how many times have you seen actual packaged tempeh at the market and thought, […]
