My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Back on track finally and I lost 3 pounds last week! Whoo hoo! I did things a little differently this time. Instead of having leftover suppers for my lunch, I've been having a salad instead. And absolutely NO sweets! I have a horrible sweet tooth, but this week a small yogurt after supper satisfied my … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

March in Our Garden

It's already March and, although it still looks wintry out there, there are more signs that spring is coming. The snow that we had last week has all gone now and my bulbs don't seem any worse for wear. The buds on the trees and shrubs are still, well, budding. Unless it stays unusually cold, … Continue reading March in Our Garden

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi Guys. The comfort food last week seemed to do the trick - we're feeling almost normal again 🙂 I haven't even been near the scale last week as 'comfort food' also included a couple of bags of chips while watching a movie or two, not to mention the chocolate. I think we all need … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

  I missed the last couple of weeks - this house has been sick, so only Chicken Noodle Soup and Whisky hot toddies were on the menu! We seem to be recovering, but are still hankering for comfort food, so this week's menu is just that. Monday: Turkey/Lasagna Soup. This isn't exactly "soup" per se, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Well, I'm still not sure if I've lost any weight. Our new scale arrived last week, but I guess I'll have to wait a week until I know for sure. I'm certain I haven't gained anything, as my clothes haven't got any tighter!  🙂 When I made the Balsamic Roast Veggie & White Bean Pasta, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Well, I'm not sure exactly how much weight I lost this week because my scale gave up the ghost. I don't know anyone else that's happened to! We ordered a new one, but it hasn't arrived yet. I can say that my clothes are slightly less tight, so I must have lost something. My lack of … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Small Space Solutions – a Place for Books and a Cozy New Living Room

Hi Guys, I know I keep saying this, but we live in a really small cottage - 650 sq. feet - and I think I'm slowly getting the hang of this small space living. One of the rooms that we hadn't really tackled since moving in, was hubby's man cave. A lot of stuff was … Continue reading Small Space Solutions – a Place for Books and a Cozy New Living Room
