This week in food and fitness

I’ve cooked too much food over the course of the last two or three months. I blame my Instant Pot. Yes, it’s as wonderful as everyone says it is, but all of the recipes I tried were designed to feed the family. I am but one woman with a husband who refuses to eat the […]

Supermarket Meal Kit #2

I tried the Stouffer’s Roasted Tuscan Style Chicken meal kit a few weeks ago. I was pleased with its easy preparation and good taste. This week I tried another one from Stouffer’s — Braised Pork. The meal’s four components (pork, potatoes, broccoli, and sauce) came frozen and packed in plastic. Step 1: Thaw sauce in […]

The recipe called for regular pasta. I wanted to use whole wheat, but I found none at Walmart. I […]

Veggies!

I used my FoodSaver FreshSaver handheld vacuum sealer to package them for the freezer. Here they are: For the moment, I’m very pleased with myself.

Bacon, vision, and being mindful

Several years ago, I noticed that there was a lot of talk on the internet about bacon. I don’t know if it was something that the bacon cartel engineered, or if all the talk about the breakfast staple came about organically. It feels like a ”bro” culture type of thing. I like bacon. I eat […]
