My Favorite Things – In Anticipation of Easter (A High Carb Post)

My mom, and my husband and I went to the West Side Market in Cleveland yesterday to purchase ingredients for our Easter dinner.  The market is one of my favorite places to visit whenever I’m in Northeast Ohio and I’ve written about it before on my blog here.  Yesterday’s shopping list was actually short – just 4 ingredients – but that didn’t stop us from walking every aisle and taking time out to enjoy a Frank’s Bratwurst sandwich.

And although we already gave each other Easter baskets (sometimes you just gotta start celebrating early), I’ve decided that I’m getting all of these goodies next year!

Decompressing…The Really Healthy Way!

After what’s been pretty much a whirlwind fall for me, I’m beginning to decompress a little now.  In fact, I’ve escaped the city for a little TLC and relaxation at the best five star accommodation I know… chez My Parents.  It’s quiet and peaceful here, and to top it off, today we even went apple picking!

For those of you who need a little vicarious decompressing, here’s a good dose of healthy for you…

(By the way, it took us a whopping total of 5 minutes to pick a bushel of the red Melrose apples…an honest day’s work in my new playbook!)
