Thursday, December 31, 2009      6 comments

At a time when I could have sunk into a deep, dark hole, I didn’t. I bounced right back, stronger than ever. Why? Because I had Zumba Gold to come home to. I had a class to teach Tuesday morning. And “my ladies” were counting on me. They had alr... Read more

I taught two classes today: Zumba Gold in the morning and (regular) Zumba in the evening as a sub. Two classes in one day! I could NEVER have done that even a couple of months ago. I have accomplished at least three of my goals for 200... Read more

It inspires me to cook and bake. Today I have lasagna in the oven for my DH’s birthday. It’s one of his favorite foods so, since I haven’t been cooking much in the last couple of months, I made that for him. I used whole wheat noodles (of cou... Read more

Well, more like trembling with anticipation! I love pumpkin pie. I don’t know what it is about it, though, one piece is never enough. I just took a pie out of the oven. After I rolled the dough, and before I mixed the pumpkin, I started ... Read more
Recipes that men like?
Thursday, November 19, 2009      5 comments

I need help finding recipes for both of us. DH doesn't want to eat what I eat so we end up not eating together most of the time. I see this as a bit of problem long term. He likes mayonnaise and/or sauces. Does anyone have some good recipes ... Read more
