Bully Beef Scotch Eggs

Originally posted on Things My Belly Likes:
served on a bed of salad to make a well-rounded meal! I’ve always thought scotch eggs were…well…a Scottish thing (the clue’s in the name, people!) So imagine my surprise when I came across this, and on a site called Celtnet no less. It turns out Jamaica has its…

Good Morning … or is it?

I’m trying to live this quote right now. I feel like the past year has been one mistake after another. I have failed so much that it is almost overwhelming. I am so far back up in weight I cannot even pretend to be happy about my life. The weight gain wasn’t for lack of…

I’m still here

I’ve been super quiet. Because I’m angry. Angry that I’ve gained and lost the same 30 pounds over and over again. I feel like a failure. I’m not. But I still get frustrated and don’t write about because I hate being negative. Talking with you guys requires I focus on a part of my life…

Whiny Wednesday

If you saw this woman eating at a restaurant, would you judge her on the food choices she made?  Or would you think she is just out with family enjoying a splurge if she was eating something that was not exactly “LIGHT”?  That woman was me when I worked my butt off trying to lose.…

Citrus Shrimp ‘n Pico Salad

I had several leftovers that inspired my lunch meal.  Every once in a while I get a wild hair and just need a new flavor.  Mike had brought home some Royal Red Shrimp — they are a local gulf shrimp treat.  Royal Reds taste like a combo of shrimp and lobster–I think they are AMAZING!…

Chillin in the rain.

All my company has left the beach … as I sit typing the rain has arrived in full thunderstorm force.  I love listening to the sound of the rain and the waves crashing on the beach.  The gulf has little surf except in stormy weather.  I live two blocks from the beach and get to…

It’s busy @ the beach

Life has been one more blur since mid-February. I’ve been from Bham to Florida. To Bham to Two spots in Louisiana, then back to Bham. Followed by a swift return to Florida. I am in the middle of our spring break family/friend shuffle at the beach. I’m loving life and all the folks in it.…

Pssss …. come here

I wanna tell you a secret.  Only it isn’t a secret … just a joy.  I am gonna be playing with my two phat boys for the next few days.  I am giddy with delight.  I might be out of touch because of critters I love to play with.  Hoping we have a complete blast…
