Birthday Celebration Complete with Gluten

I know you are probably reading the title thinking I am out of my mind.  I can assure you that I didn’t eat gluten willingly, but as a result of cross contamination.  Fortunately I did not get sick.  I am not sure how I got so lucky – maybe not enough gluten present?  Who [...]

The Menu Plan That Wasn’t

Monday Already?

Where did the holiday weekend go?  I swear it seems like it was just Monday.  I want a do-over.  Last few days of November will be rainy here, but I’ll take that over snow.  We may see the first few flakes later in the week.  Not bad, considering I think we saw them in [...]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I am starting my day with a 4 mile race with 4000 of my closest friends out in Dublin, Ohio!  Nothing like burning off some of your turkey dinner before you eat it, right?  One of the main things that drew me to The Flying Feather Four Miler is the swag.  Yes, there [...]
