Make the Switch for the Fourth of July

Are you ready to celebrate the Fourth of July a week from today? I plan on running a 5K to start the day off and then refuel later with a juicy Jennie-O turkey burger. Turkey burgers are typically lower in fat than beef burgers, but that doesn’t mean they have to be any less flavorful. [...]

Long Time No See

Weekly Menu Plan – April 21, 2014

It’s been a while since I have posted a weekly menu plan. I can make excuses, tell you all I have been cooking, but the fact of the matter is I have been busy and take-out has become a closer friend than I would like. Hopefully I can get back on track and make some [...]
