Health Journey 2.0

I don’t know why I am calling this renewed healthy journey as “version 2.0” since it is by far more than my second attempt to take better care of myself.  However, so many of my other attempts have had similar flaws, so I am calling this 2.0 in hopes that it will send a message…

Egg White Breakfast Casserole

I have never been that great at eating breakfast.  I typically do actually have breakfast (except for most weekends when I wake up just before lunch).  I just don’t make very good choices when it comes to breakfast.  I would swing between extremes of eating too little or eating too much.  I would often eat…

MetroCooking DC 2018

I was intrigued by the general premise of it.  There were…

Turkey Pot Pie

Saturday was a bit traumatic for our family.  When I woke up, my sister told me our beloved family dog, Sadie, was missing and had been for two hours.  Sadie is our 12 year old Boston Terrier.  She has had vision problems for a while, but recently she went completely blind. Normally, when she goes…
