Weekly Menu Plan: October 25, 2010

I am happy to report that I actually stuck to my menu plan for 4 nights last week! Any progress is progress, right? I also made more of a conscious effort to take the meats out that I need in advance, as meat that is still frozen is sure to derail my plans and send [...]

Weekly Menu Plan, Pumpkin Lattes & Winners

Busy day today at the GFIL household. Kids are out of school (Fair day/curriculum day). I love that they make up days and reasons to have a 3-day weekend. You don’t see that happening in the middle of the week.

I got a chance to try the pumpkin latte from Caribou Coffee yesterday and [...]

I have been BUSY this past weekend! Phew! My mom came to visit and we had a blast. She and I had a nice afternoon out that included pedicures, sushi and birthday shopping for Hannah! Later that same night we took the kids out to dinner. We had fully intended on going to BJ’s Brewhouse, [...]

Well, well, well…..Starbucks to offer free Wi-Fi

Imagine my surprise when I read this article yesterday about Starbuck’s beginning to offer free Wi-Fi beginning July 1, 2010. I wrote an article in February expressing my disappointment in Starbuck’s charging for Wi-Fi. I have to say that this is a long time coming and a little behind the times in the market. Caribou [...]

What a Day!

Yesterday I spent the day with my kids hanging out in Myrtle Beach, SC. We scoped out some places online to eat gluten-free and settled on Margaritaville. Talk about a cool place!! We have eaten many times at the Cheeseburger in Paradise in Myrtle Beach, but never Margaritaville. I can’t even begin to tell you [...]
