Project 365 – Day 46

Smellin’ Purdy

Project 365 – Day 45

Most of the time I smell and probably look a whole lot like a truck driver, no offense to all you big daddies out there.  I really have no interest in wasting time getting all gussied up just to wash dishes and wipe snot.  Excuse my colorful vernacular.

But really,  there is no point.

Yet every Sunday I procrastinate the inevitable; my morning routine of digging through my aging closet trying to find a suitable outfit.  Truthfully, I have no skill in the coordination dept.  It’s just not my thing.  And every Sunday, I dream of wearing jeans.  And I could, because others do, but there is some ingrained principle here.  Just don’t ask me to explain it.

So every time there is a fifth Sunday in the month, the youth and children take over the morning service and everyone dresses down. 

Except me this morning.

Because I forgot about it.  And it was my most uncomfortable morning ever.

Is it true that your feet grow after every child, because the shoes I was wearing this morning used to fit.  There was no stretching those baby’s.  I think they dipped them in liquid steel before putting them on the shelf.

Project 365 – Day 44

Ok, I know I told you no more food pictures, but my grand baby Elijah is just yummy, so I may be breaking my promise.  I could just eat him up!    I think he wins the award for most animated child in our family’s history.

Project 365 – Day 43

I know, I know.  Yet another food picture.  And these scones from King Arthur Flour, were the best I’ve ever tasted!

I picked them up with quick in mind, to deliver to a neighbor that needed a little TLC and I was not disappointed with this boxed mix. 

I am the type that used to do everything by hand.

When I had a life.

Now I need fast.  In fact, fast isn’t fast enough.  I need….the Jetson’s kind of fast.

Sorry.  I digress.

They were kind of a pain to mix.  The stickiness factor was off the charts, but worth every wasted paper towel and then some.

Ok, no more food pictures – for at least a day or two.  I think.



A Little Bit of This & That

Project 365 – Day 42

Today was almost a cereal day, but then we cleaned out the fridge and found a lotta goodies in there.  Like mozzarella-tomato ravioli and an avocado.  Oh and lest I forget my precious cilantro.  Usually you love it or hate it; I just happen to love it more than most people.

Have you noticed I have been blogging a lot about food this week?   Probably because I am trying to drop ten pounds and my mind is rebelling against the idea.

Project 365 – day 41

Please remind me next time, looks good doesn’t always mean tastes good.  It left much to be desired.

Wordless Wednesday – Dessert First

Project 365 – day 40

The other day I decided to try some Greek yogurt that was on sale at the grocery store.  It was a product called Chobani and as it turned out, it was possibly the worst thing I have ever tasted.  I immediately dismissed the idea of ever trying Greek yogurt again.

I mentioned my experience to Kimmie and she basically told me I was nuts if I didn’t like Greek yogurt and she opened up a container of The Greek Gods Greek Yogurt;  Angels suddenly began to sing.

It is quite possibly the best thing I have EVER tasted and I will never go back Dannon.  

The consistency is velvety smooth; unlike any thing I have ever had and it is richer than cheesecake.  Nothing at all like American yogurt. 

Now since trying Greek Gods, I have tried Fage and it is good, but not nearly as rich and flavorful as this.

The flavors available are Honey, (my favorite) Fig, Pomegranate, Vanilla, Plain and Non-Fat.

You can find it at certain health food and specialty stores and to make it easy, you can visit http://www.greekgodsyogurt.com and search for stores in your area that carry it.  If they don’t, then ask them to!  I promise you won’t be sorry.
