A couple weeks ago, I entered a fun challenge at work: to make a dish, over the weekend, that used three mystery ingredients. Check out what I came up with! This past weekend, I participated in the challenge again. The first time, the challenge was to make an entree. This time, the task was to make an appetizer!
But you can’t just make any appetizer. You have to use the three mystery ingredients, which, this time around, were: Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been seeing whole, fresh vegetables being sold as snacks lately, and I hope it’s a trend that takes off! I’m not talking about snack chips that use a little cauliflower or spinach powder in them, I’m talking about unadulterated vegetables… in snack form!
I found these Poshi vegetable pouches at the store before the lockdown began, but didn’t Read the rest of this entry »

I’m making the most of the stay-at-home order in my state, and the scale is proof. I’m 9.2 pounds lighter since I began working from home! In Part One, I talked about my food choices. In this post, I’m tackling exercise. And to sum it up, I’m exercising a lot.

I’ve been working from home for five weeks, and, all things considered, I’m in a really good spot. I’m still employed, with no signs of being laid off. I’m healthy, as is my family. I suffer a little cabin fever every once in a while, but long walks with JJ really help with that, and if they don’t, I’ll go for a drive, with no destination, just to get out of the house.
I’m lucky that I have the ability to use the Stay-at-Home order in my state as an opportunity to Read the rest of this entry »

Some friends at work came up with a really fun idea: a cooking challenge, inspired by “Chopped” on the Food Network! They posted three ingredients on our internal social media platform on Friday, and over the weekend, everyone that wanted to participate could make a dish using those ingredients. Then, on Monday, Read the rest of this entry »

I made a fantastic dinner the other night, and I used two components I’d never used before! Say hello to my Shrimp and Veggie Pesto Pasta!
But first, I want to brag really quickly, because I’m proud of how active I’ve been during this lockdown. I Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve got a story about a bridge to share. The bridge isn’t as impressive as the huge suspension bridge I raced over, or even the bridge I set out to find in Omaha, but a bridge is a bridge. For an infrastructure nerd like me, every bridge is worth a visit.
Before I get into that, though, I wanted to share a few words about my friend Richard Simmons. He’s Read the rest of this entry »

This looks like some sort of citrus fruit, which it is. But it’s also… UGLY!
I’m not being rude. I’m being literal. I’m eating an ugly fruit. That’s what the sign said at the supermarket! I would’ve Read the rest of this entry »
