Lighten Up

It’s been another busy weekend.  We were out on Long Island helping my mom & Jen clean out the basement.  Dave fixed a hose, Jen and I fixed brunch.

All in all a lovely time was had by all.

It’s been a while so I thought a food oriented post was in order.  I really am trying to go on the light side these days.  Some days I’m successful – others not so much.

You will shortly see that I am a big fan of potatoes cooked with onion.   And wine made by penguins.

Mother’s Day.

The weather here is so beautiful.  I went for a 3 mile walk yesterday – I could have walked for days it was so nice to be outside.  Tonight dinner is Chicken with the Sauce and I’m heading to Zumba. 

I’m still craving chocolate but at least I’m getting some exercise.

Hope you all are enjoying the spring.  I’ve realized I’m so much happier when I can get out and walk.  Yesterday I kept thinking I should have started running at some point but I’m still not sure where I will end up once I get started.   I’d walk to Zumba if I could but I have to walk on the highway and that might not be a great idea.

Happy Tuesday everyone!  


  1. Enjoy Zumba! Your mother's day spread looks delicious! I love all the dishes showcased!

  2. Safire - thanks! They were all pretty simple but delish.

    Dave - check again. :)

  3. I am so in love with orzo; your combination looks irresistible to me. And yes, I should marry it.

    You blog is very hunger-inducing. I look forward to reading more, Krissy. Keep up the good work!
