A Dinner Best Eaten with Your Hands!


Oooo buddy – we’ve got a scorcher on our hands today! Weather.com has us at 82 degrees right now, though my house, which is oddly impermeable to heat in the Fall & Spring, is keeping me at a comfortable 69 degrees, thank you very much! ;)

Seeing as how my second most hated weather element behind rain, is wind…I decided to keep my sanity intact and pass. PLUS I’ve got a cookie order to deliver AND a nephew to babysit tonight – all before 6:00!

Since I needed to chow on an early dinner, I kept it simple and made Pumpkin Chia Pancakes! I’ve been thinking about these babies since the last time I made them. Honestly! They are that memorable.

These were definitely “big fork” worthy. ;)


Mmm, epic. Mepic?


Oh, I have to report with some sadness that the Trader Joe’s Raspberry Vinaigrette couldn’t hold a candle to Annie’s version. Sorry TJ’s!

Also, thank you for your insightful and intelligent opinions today, regarding the partnership between Susan G. Komen and Kentucky Fried Chicken. Whether you were for it or against it, it was interesting to hear what you had to say!

I’m out!


What did you/are you having for dinner tonight?

An Unlikely Partnership: Breast Cancer Research and…Fried Chicken?


Meet my new best friends. I’ve always known that I’m slightly anemic – that is, my iron levels are lower than average, causing me, among other things, to be constantly tired, cold and prone to sickness. I noticed the past couple of months that my symptoms had gotten worse. I…
