Crooked Nail

Wow! Getting up at 4:45 is really starting to get to me. I’m tired by 6pm! Anyway, let’s recap last night’s dinner before I tell you about bootcamp this morning. Last Night’s Dinner It came together pretty quickly, which is exactly what I had planned. Fast and easy! I cooked 1/4 cup brown rice and sautéed a […]


Unexpected Productivity

I came home last night to this in our bedroom. Two weeks ago, Joe brought home a (basically) brand new 50 inch (?) TV from his restaurant that is going under renovations. He was so adamant about hanging it up right then and there, but luckily he waited for his friend who knows what he’s […]

Something about it caught my eye, but I brushed it off since I’d never actually attempted to roast a whole chicken myself. Later on at the grocery store, I decided to check out the poultry section. They usually […]


Progressive Long Run & Repetitive Eats

I’ve been eating the same food now for weeks. Are you sick of seeing sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, white beans, and brown rice? I’m not sick of tasting it, so get used to it! Last night’s dinner was inspired by “I still have brown rice in the cabinet” and “I just bought fresh produce”. I […]
