Eating Muster: Picking up Steam

Originally I had some depressing “falling behind” related title for this post. Turns out I’m actually exactly where I should be for my goal this week. Funny what real data reveals. This is even after I took a week off from cooking too crazy last week (I really didn’t feel like menu planning) and I […]

Eating Muster: Evol Chipotle Chicken Mac & Cheese

I like their burritos well enough, and I thought I’d try out their Mac & Cheese for one of my lunches this week. That said, I totally cheated and baked it in the oven instead of microwaving […]

Grapefruit Yogurt Cake (super tasty) Spicy Cocoa Roasted Carrots (meh, needs some tweaking) Hot Buttered Fluffy Pretzels (turned out surprisingly well) Spiced Black Lentils with […]
