Experimenting in the kitchen

As I have mentioned in the past since my FUNemployment began I have a long to do list of things, including getting healthy. And one of the many ways I am working on getting back to healthy (and hopefully lose a few pounds in the process) is by experimenting with recipes and cooking. I will […]


Eating out … a lot

I had three lunch dates this week and one dinner date. That’s a lot of eating out for me, especially during the week. On Tuesday I had lunch with my friend/co-worker Melissa. We had sushi.
