How often do you cull your blogroll?  Do you have strict policies about who you put on your blogroll?  Or how regularly they need to be posting to stay on the roll?

This week I’ve made a few new additions (hello Jenna, Bec, and Zesty!) but in the interest of not letting the list get crazy long I had to delete a few peeps too.  Sorry folks, but if you haven’t posted in more than 4 weeks I won’t be keepin’ ya around.  There’s just toooo many awesome daily reads to keep me busy!

One of these days I’m going to move to Wordpress, where it’s easier to make individual pages and maybe I’ll have a snazzy button to a blogroll instead of a longass list.  :)

Friday’s eats thus far…

A little mid-morning snack of dried banana chips.  Wisely I just took a handful and walked away.  I’m addicted and would easily eat the entire bag.


Lunch was a protein-plate of sorts.  A mini-platter of deli turkey, mini dill pickles, light cheddar, cucumber slices, Grissol baguette crackers, and Mary’s crackers


With a side dish of the last of the navy beans mixed with salsa and heated.  This is a super simple, tasty way to get some extra protein and healthy vitamins.

I’m feeling really sluggish and craving sugar like you wouldn’t believe today.  Must be Friday!!  FH has the car, so no gym trip for me.  Instead I had a little afternoon snackypoo of trail mix with added dried fruits & a few milk chocolate chips.


Decided to have a small can of pineapple juice along with it.

Eventually I gave in and went in for my leftover half cookie from yesterday.  I warmed it for 5 seconds in the microwave.  Goooooey and deeeeeelish.  I should’ve just eaten it first instead of trying to pretend trail mix was going to do the trick.  hehe.


Tonight we are grilling burgers.  Good thing FH is tough because the stoooopid weather isn’t cooperating and it looks like he’ll be BBQing in the rain.  Boooooooo.

Mmm banana chips are awesome! Even better (IMO) are the spicy platain chips from the Bulk Barn, definitly check em out if you like banana chips!

I BBQ in any weather, always seems to make food taste so much better.

PS. The cookie looks yummy :)

I hadn't updated my blogroll in FOREVER until I switched over to my new blog. I update my google reader all the time with new blogs though. But then the other day I had to go and clean it out too because I had over 150 blogs in there and most of them I would just skim through or hadn't been updated in forever. So I managed to get the number down to under 100.

That lunch plate you had looks DELISH!!!!

I can't believe you JUST discovered Jenna. Her blog is my absolute FAVE. :)

Bee said...

If you were in Ontaro-it's the perfect night to bbq!
I'm just debating on what to put out there!

I envy you and your beans with your lunch. I just started cutting out meat this week, so I know I have to start adding some more protein, but I'm scared to eat them! hah
I'm very nervous of trying new foods!

I need to do some serious blogroll updating.

I keep my google reader pretty recent though!

SHANNON! Where have you beeen?

Vanessa said...

I suck at updating my blogroll. I use a feedreader, so I have to remind myself to refresh the blog list on occasion!

Heather said...

I update my blog about once a month, usually 4 weeks is my cut off too, but if I really like a blog then I'll give it about 8 weeks before I say buh

I second spicy plantain chips! Yum! I had them from a package, though.

I keep thinking of updating my blogroll. I have a few at the bottom who've been slacking on the posting as of late.

I use bloglines to control the blogs I read.... and if someone hasn't updated in a month or so, I delete them. Sometimes I've added blogs cause they've been part of a challenge or something... but if I notice that I don't really have much in common with them, or don't like the way they write... or think they are just plain looney - I delete them. Of course, I do have one blog that I read regularly, who I think has the worst ideas on dieting (and I'm also sure she is not going to last with her husband)... but that is just cause I like to read her and feel superior! HAHAHA
