I blame The Pioneer Woman. Yes, that's right Ms. fancy (awesome, actually) recipe lady. It's your fault. Everyday instead of rushing home from work to run, I rush home to make this:And yes, that is what's left of a ham at the top of this post. This woman, this amazing woman has THE most amazing recipes. EVER, people. However, let me warn you. If you are trying desperately (like me) to lose weight. Do Not visit her website at http://www.thepioneerwoman.com/. You will be sucked in. (By the way, Ree has no idea I am writing this post, nor am I receiving any compensation for it. Just in case you were wondering. I just believe in giving credit where credit is due.) The cobbler pictured above is to die for. I make it at least a couple of times a month. YUMMMM!

The basic gist of this post is that I have fallen so far off of the wagon that I no longer see the tracks!! I'm am struggling. I went for a walk last night and considered it a small victory! My treadmill sits and judges me. Luckily it's in the basement, which I just avoid ;) Help! I have to admit that this is a weak cry for help. I plan to start running again. Really. But I WILL NOT GIVE UP THAT COBBLER. And please do not tell me how far/long I'll have to run to burn it off, because, I really do not care. It is that good! Especially now that I've found a farmer with fresh frozen raspberries at the indoor farmer's market!

So, on a different topic, I'm finally putting some of my Roadside Wisconsin photo note cards in my Etsy shop. They're pretty cool if I do say so myself. A sampling:

What do you think?

Oh and I've started buying myself fresh flowers every week. What a difference it has made in my attitude and my home. I was really excited this week to buy some at that same indoor market. Forced in a greenhouse yes, but locally grown!

I can't wait for spring!! (Is it obvious??)

Peace people.

  1. We are on the same wavelength for sure. I bought PWs cookbook but haven't been able to bring myself to make anything cuz it's all (except for maybe the picco de gallo) so sinful. It's great eye candy though. Did you see her on GMA the other day? Love your notecards!
