Yesterday, I found myself Googling â€œvegetarian baked beans recipeâ€ and was saddened that I didnâ€™t have all the necessary ingredients in my pantry. I was missing molasses. Blast. So today, I headed to the store and I boughtâ€¦ canned baked beans. Homemade be damned.
Lunch was a random mish-mosh.
While the baked beans were stellar (Bushâ€™s family recipe!), the real standout was this new-to-me Sabra hummus, which really did taste like artichoke dip.

Alright. So itâ€™s
Monday Tuesday. First day back after a long weekend. No one really feels like working, right? I went into the clinic for a half day and now Iâ€™m working on a little side projectâ€¦ The Husband, our buddy Isaac, and I are launching a new small business in the next few weeks (hopefully before baby arrives). Iâ€™m really excited about the project, but itâ€™s a ton of work. Anyway â€“ first day back. And no one really wants to work. So, in case you need a mental break, here are some great articles from â€˜round the web.
I always believed the old adage â€œa mile is a mile is a mile,â€ but this experiment proves that itâ€™s not true, even when broken down to calories burned per minute. Disappointing.
Basically, Iâ€™ve been unwittingly doing it right all these years, due mainly to my laziness.
This very well-written article caught my attention mainly because of the comments. The article itself doesnâ€™t seem to be dripping in bias and addresses concerns from both sides of the home v. hospital movement, although I do wish the author had addressed the middle ground (birthing centers or hospital-based birthing centers) instead of casting it in an all-or-nothing light. The comments, however, really got me thinking about these so-called Mommy Wars and why we all must insist that our way is right for everyone. Itâ€™s no secret that I have strong personal opinions about a lot of stuff, but my personal opinions are just thatâ€¦ my thoughts on my own life. I think we need to stop trying to figure out the one birthing method, the one parenting method, the one fitness method, the one everything that fits everyone. The world is too complex for black and white. Rant over.
Please read through this piece and tell me how many remedies you agree/disagree with. First of all â€“ I think hair of the dog can truly work â€“ isnâ€™t that why Bloody Marys exist? And secondly, a greasy breakfast is definitely a hangover cure!
Your turn to weigh in. Surprised by the running v. walking stats? Do you actually floss like youâ€™re supposed to? Thoughts on hospital v. home births and the ever-hyped Mommy Wars? And how, pray tell, do you actually get rid of a hangover?
