Weekend Wrap-Up: Oktoberfest!

Hey guys!

Hubby and I made it to Oktoberfest this weekend.  We drove to Munich and spent quite a bit of time wandering around, checking out the sights, and sampling some traditional food.

Veggie Experiment Results

Hey guys!

My week of eating an all-veggie diet has come to an end.  I was a vegetarian for years and even went vegan for a year and a half around the time that I got married.  Not too long after getting married, though, I went back to being what I think is called a semi-vegetarian (eating poutry, fish, dairy, and eggs but skipping pork and red meat). Why?  Well, I was tired of fighting with Hubby about food (the fact that my in-laws were very angry and confrontational about it didn't help) and it was a lot of work and expensive... and well, I just did!

But ever since, I occasionally get curious again (or want to beat some congestion like this time) and take some time to experiment with a different diet.  Being vegetarian is very easy for me most of the time, while ditching dairy is more difficult even short-term.  (I think this is true for a lot of people.)  I always wind up going back to my semi-veg diet, though, because it feels the easiest and with a bit of effort I can look and feel really good on it.  It also plays into my desire to feel normal and not excluded.  Being treated like a weirdo because of what you eat gets really old really fast!

Here are some of the things that I made for dinners during the last week out of one of my all-time favorite meatless cookbooks: Chloe's Kitchen by Chloe Coscarelli.

Grocery Haul

Hey guys!

So in part as a reaction to our bout with food poisoning this week, I decided to focus on a lot more plant based foods to help get both of us health again.  Here's what I bough for the week:

Weekly Wrap-Up!

Hey guys,

I know I've been pretty absent this week.  After a summer of having to much spare time on my hands, everything suddenly got crazy this week!  Here's what I mean:

First of all, on Monday evening, I got an email offering me a job interview for a Special Education aide position at the middle school where I'm going to start subbing once they finish my background check.

That night for dinner, I made a new strogranoff recipe for dinner:
