When I was a little girl in 5th grade, I had my first eye test. I failed it – miserably. My mom took me to get my first pair of glasses and I thought I was the coolest kid ever. Back then, it was pretty rare for kids to wear glasses.
As I moved through middle school and into high school, more and more kids discovered that their eyesight was less than stellar. But contact lenses were becoming more and more popular and I was so over my glasses by this time. I have been…Continue

Ok, so that is a strange title for a post.....but I have been prompted......By Mama Kat....so what do you want to know about eggs....they don't help your cholesterol....but then again, go on the Atkins diet and they are the main staple.
So how are they inspiring me? I am finding they are one of the foods that are used in a lot of traditions....Is it eggs that keep us all together? If we have this in common, can peace come to our…Continue

Today I was looking at the pouring down cold rain and wondering what to make for supper. Then I stood in front of my open refrigerator staring at the leftover ham from Easter and wondered what else can I do with it? Then a friend suggested ham and potato soup. It sounded wonderful and then for some reason that I can’t explain I started craving…Continue

The thought finally occurred to Lorin and I that we should probably start teaching Miranda to spoon-feed herself.
This is something that I have been dreading because I have serious issues with cleanliness.
You are looking at a person who has her child master the sippy cup, only to bring the bottle back because she can't handle the sticky, juice-splattered floors.
Oh the torture!
Despite my inner…

Finding out that you are expecting is the most exciting news that a mother to be will ever get, aside from getting married. After getting a positive pregnancy test, most women call the doctors office immediately to get prenatal care so that they can determine how far along that they are. Once you have a…Continue

Several years ago, after I got married and settled into my current job, I started experiencing asthma-like attacks. I’d be walking home on a cold night and the next thing I knew I’d be trying to clear my throat and find that I wasn’t able to. I’d have a dry cough, a wheeze, and sweat pouring down my forehead. If I ran across the street because the walk signal was changing, I’d spend the next five minutes trying to catch my breath, sometimes finding that I couldn’t. I ended up…Continue

We just got back from our amazing vacation to visit friends and family in the D.C. and North Carolina area. I'll post about our trip later this week. The trip was so enjoyable, and I got some hands free time since everyone seemed to want to hold Sweet P. We had also eaten very freely, so I also realized I…Continue

Leftover Matzo. Leftover Easter Eggs. Leftover Salsa.
Mama’s building cultural bridges one meal at a time.
In case you don't know, Matzo is an unleavened bread (it's more like a crispy cracker) traditionally eaten during the week-long Passover…Continue

I haven’t been blogging a lot lately because I've been really busy with a surprise that my hubby brought home, a new desk! A big executive desk that was given to him for free! Ain't God grand? I think so!
So what was the first thing I needed to do? Make it mine and since it wasn't my hubby’s desk from childhood or an antique that someone gave…Continue

Writing Prompt Part Deux
A lunch date with my younger self
So the scenario in my mind is the current me spending the day with a very young teenage version of me. Since I tackled the college years yesterday I figured I go a bit younger for this writing assignment.
So here goes...
I see us - younger Carol and older, wiser, more mature Carol having lunch together at one of my fun favorite restaurants in the city. Since I'm taking young C out…Continue

If I could bring back...
For the next seven days I have a writing assignment. Each assignment starts with a prompt such as the one above. The goal of this is three-fold - 1) to work on being a more creative and thoughtful writer, 2) to allow you to get to know me more personally, & 3) to work on creating a better blog. Therefore, I'm diving into it because I'm truly invested in all three objectives.
So if I could bring back anything... I've thought on this a…Continue

The hubby and I watched the History Channel's "The Bible", over these last few weeks. I totally have to say that I enjoyed it. I have wondered how many folks tuned in each week? Which also makes me wonder what kind of people watched it each week? I have to say that I was quite amazed when I asked a few people at church and all said that they hadn't seen any of it. But on the same token the big tv show of topic was "Downton Abbey". I even noticed several of my more religious friends watched…Continue

This is a shout out to all clothes manufacturers: What the heck happened to jeans that actually FIT?! Remember those days? The days when jeans actually fit your waist and your butt. Women come in many different sizes, however finding jeans to fit each one of those sizes is like finding a needle in a haystack. There are skinny jeans, super skinny jeans, curvy jeans, mid-rise, low-rise, ultra-low rise, stretch, semi-stretch, non-stretch, jeggings, the list goes…Continue

Salads are no longer the bowls of lettuce and tomatoes of yesterday. Today's modern salads are full of zest and flavor and are often served as meals in and of themselves. Some of the most diverse salads are those that come from Italy. Authentic Italian spring salad recipes provide light, flavorful alternatives to heavier meals and bring a little taste of Old World Italy to your dining table, often with ingredients that are already in your…Continue
