I’m getting a bit nervous about this potluck thing tonight, I am surprisingly socially awkward. Anyway, as promised, I’ve prepared a dish that is a cross between lasagne and shepherds/cottage pie. You’ll have to excuse the images, blogger is bitch and I can’t rotate the images. My last post gave the link to the base […]

Day 24! Seriously, I can not believe it’s day 24 already. When I weighed myself the other day, I found that I had lost 12lbs in about 12 days – my body just got the hint and started surrendering the weight. I’ve put the scales away again, I feel like I’ve hit on a good […]

My regular Sunday cookup. Part of a routine I’ve had for years – to the point where I start to get a bit anxious if I have to be social or “do things” on a Sunday. It’s been mighty cold here recently and we aren’t even in winter! It was -3 deg this morning at […]
