This was my view from the gym yesterday.  There’s worse things to look at while sweating up a storm, no?


I swear I had plans for a recipe post this week.  I made this Quinoa and Bean Soup the other night and while it’s OK, it’s bland so I didn’t deem it good enough for a post of it’s own. 


To be fair, it was better heated up and it was really easy to make so maybe with some better seasoning I might make it again and tell you about it.

So far, my grocery budgeting has worked out exactly as I had planned for the week.  In fact I bought myself a happy little bouquet and still didn’t break the budget.  Huzzah!


Once a month I load my Starbucks card for buying coffee beans and occasional handy dandy coffees.  Yesterday I was happy to use up my last $3 just to get my hands on a cute Love cup!


I didn’t do it, but there’s an iPhone app you can use to scan the cup and the picture will magically come to life!  Starbucks…you are a PR machine.

UPS arrived at my door and I may have squealed with delight when I buzzed the guy in to deliver this package!!  I’ve been sitting, waiting, and wishing for a real food processor for years now (I only have a wee 2 cupper) so I finally gave in and ordered one.


Don’t worry…it didn’t cost me a dime!  As if a KitchenAid anything is in my budget right now.  Nope!  You can thank Airmiles for this one.  :)

This thing is enormous!!  I’ll probably be complaining that it’s too much food processor for me now.  Never satisfied you know. 

Now, what to make…what to make? 

Oh, and the third instalment from #CanadianBloggerSeries is up over on Heidi’s blog.  This time it’s my buddy Scott from Your Inner Skinny explaining what a giant pain in the ass it is to eat healthy living in Yellowknife. 

I hate to break it to you bud, but those organic eggs cost the same ridiculous amount here in Victoria.  You aren’t alone up there on that one!

Ooooh jealous of your food processor. That's the one with the nifty 'adjust the slice thickness' thingy (so technical, I know). I have to change my blade to get different thickness and then I only have 2 blades. Enjoy it! I have the same size and use it WAY more than I thought I would.

I love airmiles!!! I ordered a Keurig two weeks ago and got it last week. I love it love it love it. And I never ever would have just bought it for myself. Thank you airmiles.

Paige just got an IPhone. Mom can't afford one unfortunately :P She'll be all over that app!

You will be in food processor heaven. Mine is a bit of a piece of sh*t but I still love it. :)
