Sheesh! The days are flying by! Each day of this challenge has been totally different. Some days, I accomplish all four M’s like a little soldier, and all before 10am. It’s as if they are the easiest four habits in the world. Other days…well…it might take me all day, or I might not even get one accomplished. But the fact that those four M’s have … Continue reading Day 10.
Day 5 has been ROUGH. Not rough because the M&M’s are hard ~ rough because LIFE IS HARD. And the M&M’s are supposed to help buffer that difficulty just a bit. But it’s pretty hard to get those M’s in when you’re at rock bottom. (Except actual M&M’s, of course). But these wonderful M’s might help you out of rock bottom, Pixy! VICIOUS CYCLE. Anyone … Continue reading Day 5.
Here we go, kids! It’s August 1, and I am so ready. I’m nervous, I’m unsure of myself, and I’m definitely feeling that discomfort that comes just before I say negative things to myself, and quit. NOT THIS TIME! I’m going to push through this time ~ to the NEXT LEVEL! I’m treating this day, August 1st, as a new year. One year of … Continue reading Day 1: M&M’s
Oh friends, I TOLD you. I TOLD you I would add more to the list. The three M’s are about to expand to four. I forgot. Forgive me. I almost didn’t want to bother you all with this, but my friend Liz (Hi, Liz!) just told me she wanted to add an M! Then I thought, “Well, now I’ve gotta do it!” It was a … Continue reading ONE MORE M?
Dare I share this? I am notorious for starting something, blogging about it, and not following through with it. How many Whole 30’s, or Whole 21’s have there been? UGH. I hate not having any follow-through. But here I go again! Back on the horse. Here goes… I’ve been reading Julia Cameron’s life-changing book: The Artist’s Way. I have one more chapter left, and then … Continue reading THE THREE M’S.
My lovely Mother-in-Law asked me to post my pesto recipe. Hi Cindy! Pesto is one of my all-time favorite foods to have in the freezer, ready to add quick and fresh flavor to anything and everything. I like to freeze the pesto in ice cube trays, then pop the cubes out and store them in a ziplock bag. You can drop one or two into … Continue reading Pesto.
Lobster Quiche? Oooh la laaaa ~ how fancy! Lobster is definitely on my list of top five favorite foods. The texture, the flavor, the richness ~ I just can’t get enough. And I almost feel like it should never be eaten any other way but by itself, with some clarified butter. To hide it in a quiche seems like a sacrilege. But we bought this … Continue reading Lobster Quiche.
Does the name of this dish scare you just a little? I hope not. Let’s put it this way ~ do you like ground meat mixed up with asian spices? Do you like stir-fry, with rice and onions? How about lettuce wraps? Or an asian version of sloppy joes? The only thing that is somewhat weird about this dish, actually, is the sauce. You have … Continue reading Thai Laab.
Look away, purists. I say that a lot, because I don’t want to offend anyone by, say, putting capers in my Bolognese, or mushrooms in my Bulgogi. But here in the Bunker, if I’ve got bits and bobs in my fridge that need to be used, and would enhance the flavor? Well then all bets are off. I mean, I’m not purely one thing, so … Continue reading Bunker Bolognese.
The Hub and I created this phrase ~ “The Network of Luxury”. These are close friends who also happen to possess amazing gifts, talents, lake houses, or other incredible benefits that make your friendship just that much richer. Perfect example: our friends, Kate and Anna, own a farm called Roots, Fruits and Greens Farm, and have started an online delivery business ~ http://www.farmici.com. They sell … Continue reading Honeydew and Lemon Balm Chilled Soup.
