Mr. Real Food’s Cucumber Salad

I’m not a huge fan of cucumber salad.  I like it okay, just not as much or as frequently as Mr. Real Food.  But since we had so many cucumbers from our co-op basket and my brother’s garden, we had to do something with them.  So Mr. Real Food made his own cucumber salad and […]

Raspberry Lemonade

It’s summertime in Texas.  And while it has been a pretty mild summer as far as summers go, it’s still hot.  Water is almost always my drink of choice but sometimes I really need some lemonade to quench my thirst.  But after reading the label for lemonade mixes, there’s no way I am going to […]

Marathon Training – Week 11

This was another up and down week in many ways.  I was crazy busy between work, training, and life in general.  But I survived!  I didn’t have any time during the week to work on my blog so this will just be pieced together as much as I can remember it.  So here we go….. […]
