This is Not a Negotiation.

Toddlers are kinda like small, sticky, pee-pants terrorists like that.

It's Like an Orange on a Toothpick

Remember the hat that I wore pretty much all last summer to keep off of my photosensitive face? The one I got in the Allure Safe in the Sun Beauty Box? The one that's actually kinda cute? Probably not, because I wasn't exactly posting a lot of pictures of myself last summer.

Anyhow, that hat? It doesn't fit me any more. Because my hair is back, in all of it's unruly, prematurely white glory.

I Scream, You Scream

OMG more food news: It's Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's today (12p-8p).

A Tale of Yummy Overpriced Snackfoods

Like many people, I have a major love/hate with Whole Foods: I loooooooooooove all the great stuff they have, hate signing off on three figure receipts.

One of my most favorite things by Whole Paycheck--besides their Seedilicious bread and their ridiculously fantastic cheese selection--is their Protein Packed Salad. Or, was their Protein Packed Salad, until they unceremoniously discontinued it about a year ago.

There were a number of questions asked of the folks behind the deli counter and some mourning in between the whole cancer thing, and then time passed, and then POOF! I was perusing the refrigerated prepacked food section and there it was! My Protein Packed Salad!

What's so great about my PPS? Well, here's the ingredients list, for your edification and my insurance, just in case it goes all POOF again:
Edamame, wheatberries, quinoa, celery, red peppers, carrots, red onion, scallions, and dressing (cottage cheese, canola mayo, honey, parsley, cider vinegar, dill, sea salt, black pepper).
It's so super fudging good, I hope you're all able to find some at your local WF!

I'm Published!

Ok, so it's just another place on the 'net, but I got paid for it*!

Dealing With Cancer: A Kick in the Ass.

It's a 3-part series, so you might have to poke around to find the other two parts. Me, verbose? Never.

Ok, so the $$ is only enough to pay for 1.5 parking tickets, but still...

It's Almost Market Season!

This is so great for a thousand different reasons, and to celebrate the onset of spring I really need to get off the computer, off my ass, and over to the fabric store--yes, the fabric store--so I can make Martha's No-Sew Market Tote.

I think if I got the hang of making these, I could also tweak the pattern a little to be able to use them for produce bags for my usual shopping.

Step one: get off the computer...

Call Me Cindy Lou Roux

It sounds like The Kid is up from her nap and throwing bricks out of her crib, so I'll have to keep this quick, but I just wanted to say that I made some pretty kickass mac 'n cheese from scratch--my first roux!--last night and holy POOP is it good.

I'm sure the recipe is somewhere online--but like I said, bricks--so I'll just post the scan that my CIA-educated brother-in-law sent me for now and try to find the recipe later...
