Guest Blogger: Cool Step-Mom with Veggies at School

First off I want to be known that I am not a blogger or a professional one at that. When I asked Mrs. Q if I could be a GUEST blogger I warned her that it might be misspelled or have horrible grammar but that I NEEDED to share my story! I am a mother […]

Cost: $4.15 Everything was delicious but I was starving so I could have been biased. It was your basic […]

I saw this Trudeau Fuel Duo Thermos and Snack Container at a local housewares store and I couldn’t resist it (I bought this product myself and this not a paid review). I like that it comes with a snack holder on the top. So I could put crackers in it and have a trashless lunch. […]

Open thread: Vegetarians, vegans, and people with food allergies

A little late with the open thread today. I’m busy doing summer things and getting out. It’s great not to feel like I have to tackle the laundry and the grocery shopping right away. Just a relaxing weekend… *** I’m amazed when I dine with one of my many vegetarian friends (I don’t have any vegan […]

Summer lunch: restaurant tacos

Out to lunch – Three al pastor (seasoned pork) tacos with cilantro and lime, refried beans, rice, water – $10 I wanted to get tacos yesterday but something came up. So today was the day. I love this place, but I don’t get over to it very often (I will reveal the name one day…). I squeezed the lime wedges […]
