Can Lady

\”Bag Lady\” by Ms. Erykah Badu But really, I’m the can lady. Well, maybe not yet. But look at what I spent my weekend doing…  


Tah-dah!  Behold Milk’s famous chili. He makes this several times a year (never in the summer) and last year even gave me some to freeze and save for later.  Now I tried to get a recipe to share but it seems that the chef didn’t measure anything.  Actually, that’s not entirely true.  The chef remarked that […]

12 Pounds

At my doctor’s appointment, I weighed 12 pounds more than I had at the last visit. The last visit was 6 months ago. 12 pounds in 6 months. I’m disgusted. Just thinking about it upsets me.  This is the 6 months where I’ve been cooking more, exercising sporadically, eating lots of produce, and subscribed to […]
