I don’t know what I would call this week… A funk? I’ve been barely running, primarily doing yoga, eating like shit and cranky… I’ve been trying to remedy my issue. Things have been difficult at home.

If you have never grilled lettuce, you are missing out! You take a head of romaine lettuce and cut it in half lengthwise. Lay it face up on the grill, drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil (then I sprinkle with Johnny’s salt). Grill each side for 2 or 3 minutes. It’s sooo simple, yet sooo good. Planted my seedlings for my garden tonight too! … Continue reading Grilled Romaine Lettuce
Had a great time with my Honey at a wine tasting Saturday night. My co-workers were there, and it was so nice to just all dressed up and hang out for the night. Bill is always the funniest person to do things with, his relaxed disposition and easy-going attitude makes anything and everything a good time. I’m so very thankful to have him.
