Weekly Menu Plan–December 9, 2013

Welcome to the second week of December! Our weather has been more like January with snow and ice storms.  Kids had their first snow day last Friday and mom got to run on the snowy trail early Saturday with some friends. 

What a great day for a run!!

What is that saying?  [...]

Gluten-Free Notes & Weekly Menu Plan 10/6/2013

The past week has been pretty exciting in the gluten-free world.  First, the news of gluten-free/allergen-friendly  “center of the plate” Child Nutrition (CN) products for the school foodservice industry.  Elevation brands and Slade Gorton come together to launch fish sticks and chicken nuggets that meet the strictest Child Nutrition guidelines.  This makes me smile…simply because [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–September 23, 2013

The only thing that keeps coming to mind as I sit down to write this post is, “Wake me up when September Ends.”  Perhaps that’s because I slept the weekend away?  I slept 9 hours on Saturday night, still felt the need to lie down yesterday afternoon and was in bed before 10 PM last [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–September 16, 2013

Welcome to the middle of September.  Last week we had the hottest day of the year on Tuesday and then woke up to temps in the low 40s on Saturday (gloves were needed on our run!).  Mother Nature sure seems to be a bit bipolar these days, huh?  If I could choose, I would choose [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–September 8, 2013

I ran around all day thinking that it was “National Banana Nut Bread Day”, only to find out I was wrong.  It is “National Date Nut Bread Day”.  Doh!  I planned to share several different recipes for gluten-free banana nut bread, ranging from simple to more complex.  After thinking about it I decided not to [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–September 3, 2013

Welcome to September!  I woke up this morning to much cooler temperatures and lower humidity.  This means that running is about to get easier.  That invisible, thick layer of air will disappear and it will no longer seem as if swimming and running have merged into the same sport.  Cooler temperatures also mean fall is [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–August 26, 2013

School has started and we are in the last week of summer.  Labor Day weekend is upon us, though the temps feel more like mid-July than they do heading into September.  I am getting busier in the evenings with personal training clients (YAY!), so menu planning and keeping my calendar organized is becoming an absolute [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–August 5, 2013

Welcome to August!  Where has the summer gone?  Not only does the cool weather make it feel like fall, but the kids are heading back-to-school next week!  This is the last full week of summer vacation, so hopefully we can squeeze in one or two more pool days this week. 

Check out the [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–July 28, 2013

I apologize for being MIA the past few days.  I had every intention to get posts up every day last week and it just didn’t happen.  As I mentioned on Tuesday, the lack of sleep I had Sunday night really did a number on me.  I am not sure how I used to only get [...]

Weekly Menu Plan 7/8/2013

To whoever is doing the rain dance in Columbus, Ohio:  Please stop!  If the sun does peek through the clouds, it isn’t for long. Yesterday it did manage to stay out for a few hours, though the forecast said rain, so it wasn’t like we made plans to spend any time outside.  Last night we [...]
