1. Ten To Dos in May 2013

    I did a pretty good job of getting things done and having fun and relaxing in April. Let's see if I can do as well in May... it will be touch and go....more

  2. Yay Spring! Meal Plan Monday, April 29th

    You guys. You guys! I left the house yesterday wearing a dress and flats -- no tights, no hosiery of any kind -- and a jacket and i had to take off the jacket because it was too hot. And then we did yard work in the sunshine. It was like spring finally decided to show up more than a little fashionably late. Welcome spring! Less welcome are the blisters on my feet that come when I switch from wearing socks and boots to flats minus socks. Let's just say there won't be any running for a few more days. ...more

  3. Blogger Meetup?

     Hello Everyone, I recently moved back to my native Minnesota after living on the west coast for many years.  I'm a blogger and am looking to connect with other writers here -- does anyone have an interest in getting together over coffee one day?  Or, perhaps there is an existing group that already meets? I'm located in St. Louis Park.  Look forward to hearing from anyone who has an interest. ...more

  4. Meal Plan Monday, April 22

    Our meal plan went to pot pretty quickly last week and as a result ate too much takeout. There are weeks like that. The plus side of the takeout bonanza is that we really, really want lots of homemade meals this week. Well that and we ordered the spicy veg pizza we had ordered last month and it didn't make my lips swell up like balloons this time. Yay! Monday: The shrimp dish we didn't make on Friday because we ordered pizza. (It's ok, we use frozen shrimp and it never even got out of the freezer.)...more

  5. Meal Plan Monday April 15

    I want a weekend do-over. I did not get anything on my to do list done. That might have something to do with the Battlestar Galatica marathon we had on Sunday. I know I certainly didn't get all the writing done that I meant to do this weekend. Or read as much as I planned. I blame the weather. ...more
    I have been so bad about meal planning the last few weeks! Things have been way crazy here. I'm ...more

    Is this group still active? It's garden season! Get out the jars!

    Just wondering (hoping) if this group is still active?  Doesn't seem like there has been much activity lately.  Too bad we're big into gardening, cooking and preserving the garden, and could use some like-minded friends.   Life's too short to eat crappy food.  :-)http://threeheadedchef.blogspot.com/...more

    Any food bloggers want to exchange links?

    Would like to swap links with anyone blogging about main course dishes, cooking with fresh ingredients (garden to table, etc.), challenging recipes.    Life's too short to eat crappy food.  :-)http://threeheadedchef.blogspot.com/...more
  6. Meal Plan Monday, April 8

    I spent most of Sunday afternoon playing in the kitchen. Since dinner was in the crockpot I was really mostly making things for the coming week. I'll confess that I was totally inspired by Cassie's post on how she preps food for the week. After I made our meal plan I realized that we wouldn't have much on hand for lunches and snacks. I get really frustrated when lunch time rolls around and I don't have anything that's quick and easy to make or reheat....more

  7. Meal Plan Monday, April 1

    Hellllooooo April. You are already looking so much nicer than March. The snow piles are shrinking! I see grass! My little depressed gargoyle came out to play! While I'm sure winter is going to come back and slap us in the face with one last burst, I'm hopeful that the end is in sight. ...more

  8. 10 in April 2013

    I'm trying not to hate on last month's lack of strike outs because I didn't do too badly. I just didn't do as well as I'd hoped. Then again, if you look at the list I posted here and the list on my Any.Do app, I got a whole heck of a lot done, so Yay! No hating on the lists! Let's see how much of this I can get done in April. (I have high hopes. Very high hopes.) 1) Get some dirt, mulch, gravel for the backyard. 2) GET THESE BOXES PACKED AND MAILED. (5 down) 3) Take a real day off when my brother visits....more
