Recent Meals and a Cupcake


Starting today’s post with dessert! I had this giant chocolate fudge cupcake over the weekend and it was as good as it looks. I also had this bowl of Banza mac and cheese with roasted broccoli. Sometimes the simplest meals are the best meals. Obviously, I had a Chopt salad in the last few days. […]

What I’ve Eaten Lately


Time for recent meals again! I had a vegetarian salad bowl from Maoz over the weekend. Maoz has always been a favorite of mine – especially back in the day when I could load the toppings myself into the bowl at the city Maoz locations. For this Maoz salad bowl, I had them drizzle tahini […]

Sentence Per Picture – Recent Meals


  I took a bite of my whole wheat margarita pizza before taking the picture. This was a nice big vegetarian salad bowl from Maoz while shopping at the mall. Another big, beautiful veggie-loaded salad at the beach with fresh guacamole as my salad dressing. I told you that I don’t cut my own watermelon […]

Seven meals to share with you today! Let’s start with pizza. 🙂 I had my usual whole wheat margarita pizza with a salad the other night. This dinner is really one of my favorite go-to meals. Another night turned into pizza for dinner too. This time it was the vegetable slice from Mario’s. The crust […]

Never Say Never Plus Friday Favorites


So I thought I would put together a food post on Wednesday but then I went into my photos to see I had already deleted all pictures of recent meals that I took for the purposes of the blog. In my head when deleting the photos, I guess I thought that I had already edited […]

Friday Favorites (September 20, 2019)

Since I missed Wednesday’s post, I will share a few recent favorite foods in today’s Friday Favorites post. First, though, we are SO CLOSE to hockey season — the offseason really flew by so quickly! We went to the preseason game Tuesday night at the Coliseum. Two weeks and counting until opening night —and my […]

Recent Meals + Pizza Bagel Craving

vegetable fajitas

    Last week I was trying to decide if I should highlight a full day of meals OR a variety of recent meals in Wednesday posts. Based on the comments and my opinion thrown in too, I have a feeling I will continue to rotate between the two ideas, depending upon the week. How […]

Killer Salad, Maoz & Other Recent Eats


  I have a bunch of recent eats to share with you today! First, I made a KILLER salad on Monday. My friend Dina and I worked together which we really try to do every Monday but hadn’t in a while so it was really nice again for a change. I always make us lunch and we think […]

getting back to routine & back to vegetables (week in review)

steamed vegetables and rice

  When I say last week was a complete blur, I mean last week was a COMPLETE BLUR. For several days after the Bar Mitzvah, my life felt like just one extended hour of reliving the details of the weekend. I have reached the point where I am tired of talking about the Bar Mitzvah details […]

Recipe Challenge: Baked Falafel

baked falafel

  I got a letter in the mail from my son yesterday. Among other things he listed about the fun he is having at camp so far, he let me know he is remembering to stay hydrated. See, I knew I was raising him right. 🙂 This recipe challenge that Laura and I committed ourselves to […]

weekend sentence per picture

Maoz salad

  I haven’t done a weekend sentence per picture in a while! You are reminded once again why your best friends are your best friends when you go to The Cheesecake Factory and all order the same salad for lunch. Sometimes I get Red Mango with only one topping. I am surrounded by the orange and blue […]
