I Know What You’re Thinking…

I don't miss much about eating animals, but one thing I have missed is a really tasty BLT. Or a BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato) on toasted sourdough. There is something about the way the crunchy bread, complete with mayo all up in the nooks and crannies blends with the savory bacon, the creaminess … Continue reading I Know What You’re Thinking…

Food Fun – Pita Pocket Joes

I Don’t Think I’ll Miss My Toast

My niece over at Hangin' By A Thread texted me last week a picture of this book, Whole30, with the description: This is my December. Hmm. Not one to let a challenge go by, (without further investigation) I jumped on board saying, "Hey! I'll do it with you. It's only 30 days, right? No big deal that … Continue reading I Don’t Think I’ll Miss My Toast
