Weekly Chronicles: Celebration Edition


Thursday was my husband’s birthday and we celebrated with a nice dinner out.  It was also an opportunity for us to catch up since I’d been traveling for a week and just returned the night before. The bad part was I used the event for an excuse to continue down the path of bad choices and ate way too much!  You’ll hear more about this tomorrow.

Other than menu selection regrets, we had a wonderful evening.  It’s fun to travel but it’s always better to come home!

Around the Web

Here are a few of my favorite blog articles this week.

You might remember my recipe for a stuffed pepper with egg. This egg in a pepper ring recipe from Slim Shopping seems easier and a nice change of pace.

Jezebel highlights the amount of weight loss advice out there (a lot of it crazy or conflicting) with How to Lose All the Weight You Want in 89 Steps.

The Cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Quiche recipe from LaLoosh looks easy, delicious and low calorie!

Simple Nourished Living shares three ways to make recipes Weight Watchers friendly.

It was National Lasagna day last week and I found two lighter lasagna recipes to try.  Emily Bites shares a recipe for Mexican Lasagna roll-ups while Peace + Love + Low Carb has one for Lasagna Stuffed Peppers.  I’d like to give both a try.

Generation Fabulous shares how midlife women rocked BlogHer 13.  You’ll hear more about the conference in later posts from me as well.
