    “Back Off”

    September 28, 2012


    Murphy is seriously obsessed with chicken. I was on grill duty for dinner last night, so he didn’t leave me alone the entire time. Dinner On the menu: Roasted Chicken & Veggies with Maple Mustard Sauce. I did my own thing and cooked the chicken on the grill and veggies separately in the oven. It […]


    Away From My Desk

    September 28, 2012

Workout Chrissy emailed me the other day to tell me about an amazing Groupon deal for Dancing Crow Yoga (10 classes […]

Her stories are absolutely hilarious, and I love the way she writes—it’s like we’re at a bar, drinking beers, and she’s not holding back as she remembers those times in her life. It’s awesome. Anyway, the […]



    Hello, hello! Happy Hump Day! Let’s quickly recap yesterday’s eats because I have a reader question to answer for ya! Lunch Yesterday’s lunch was reheated Italian “hot plate” from the previous night’s dinner. The leftovers were even better than the original because the veggies had more time to soak up all of the delicious flavors. […]
