    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day.

    It's always interesting to read articles from other
    authors and use a little something from other websites.

    Alright Brianna, I'm coming out of lukdrom for this one. (I'm a missionary kid who was born in Ethiopia. I found your blog when my husband and I were thinking about international adoption. I dream
    about adopting a sibling group from Ethiopia.)Anyway, menu planning...Here's what I do:1. Go to . (There are tons of recipes, a very helpful rating system, easy menu planning tools and it's free!)2.
    Type in search terms in the search box (like "vegetarian") or add more keywords to make it more specific (like "vegetarian beans").3. Once the list comes up, click on "Rating" in the "sort by" menu.
    Now you've got the highest-rated recipes (i.e. the most-liked by the masses and therefore the best bets) at the top of the list. (By the way, is their list of vegetarian recipes, sorted from the
    highest-rated to the lowest-rated.)4. Once you find a recipe that sounds good, click on it.5. Now click on "Read Reviews" and then sort that list by "most helpful." Now you'll find reviews like "This
    was a good recipe, but be sure to double the sauce, otherwise it's too dry."There's so much more...sign up for a free account and add recipes to your "recipe box" or add them to your "shopping list."
    So, menu planning is simple. Just browse through the recipes in your recipe box, add the ones you want to have that week to your shopping list and print. Now you're ready to go to the grocery store
    and you can print out the recipes you'll need too. Easy peasy. I'm an internet geek...I live for free stuff on the internet!...hopefully I have not totally overwhelmed you. :) By the way, I have no
    connection to allrecipes.com. It's just a personal favorite.

    Thanks for your write-up on this weblog. From my personal experience, periodically softening way up a photograph may possibly provide the wedding photographer with a little an artistic flare.
    Oftentimes however, the soft clouds isn’t precisely what you had under consideration and can sometimes spoil a normally good photograph, especially if you anticipate enlarging the item.

A Frige Full of Beer and Hot Dogs

 

We had my Husband's birthday party this weekend and of course, I bought too much hot dogs and beer and wine. So now my whole frige is stocked with stuff I don't really eat or drink. I have never been much of a drinker, my tolerance is so little that one drink is enough to make me very happy. And although I do like an occassional hot dog, mostly at the ball park, the prospective of eating one for breakfast, lunch and dinner is a daunting one. But I do have a lot of fruit and berries there too, so I think cheese and berries is going to be my dinner. 

 

I have been trying to get back into shape, in the last couple of years having every digestive issue possible and recently having a surgery I have gotten out of shape. My clothes still fit but not the way I would like them too. So I have been trying to shape up and get healthy with wholesome food and exercise. I will be posting my current and progress photos along with the foods I eat and exercise I do.
