The Little Red Hen Eats Tomatoes


Now that we’re back in the fertile Willamette Valley, we can grow our own tomatoes. This is a big deal for our family, since we all love tomatoes, and as much as I want to support local organic farmers, I also want to buy bread, milk, and good running shoes, too. A few $3 seedlings […]

Cooking with @juliejulie: Shake Weight & POM


Alrighty then, here’s the first Cooking Show segment for Chubby Mommy Running Club, featuring the ever-popular Shake Weight exercise apparatus, and the delicious POM Wonderful juice. I cooked in red this time. What color should I cook next time? Something yummy, involving “Dynamic Inertia,” to be sure. Do you have any special tools you like […]

My Costco, My Life


Today I went to Costco. Usually, I get a secret rush of happy when I think of shopping at Costco, even though it wears me out. There’s just so much stuff there. Stuff I don’t even know I want until I see it. And even if I don’t buy it, I just like to be […]

Ooops! I forgot to diet…


I got on the scale this morning. The good news is I haven’t gained any pounds. The bad news is, I haven’t lost any. Two weeks ago I promised myself I’d lose ten pounds before my birthday. My birthday’s in ten days. I don’t usually lie to myself. I prefer to think of this lack […]

Licorice Martini


I just made a new drink: Licorice Liqueur with vodka. Stirred, not shaken. I think it is my new favorite drink. I think I will name it “Black Rope Martini.” But if anyone has a better name, please share.I let my husband taste it. He made a face like a 5 month old baby makes […]

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups: Clever Plans and Secret Tricks


Happy Halloween! I’m going to give my shoes one more chance to redeem themselves, and hopefully burn a few calories before the serious candy eating starts. I swear I’m going running in a little while, as soon as the sun melts the frost on my car. Frosty air hurts my lungs when I breathe. My […]
