What I’m Reading plus MAC-N-CHEESE!

Here’s just a little sampling of some of the amazing info I’ve come across in my travels through the blogosphere today. Happy reading!

Check out these awesome pics of people reading Dietgirl's book all over the world. Come on Ducks, whoever has a copy of it now should snap a pic for sure and send it in!

Nora Dunn over at Wise Bread gets the captain obvious award for her compilation of travel resources that can be used as alternatives to buying guidebooks. LOVED this. It was a total "should've had a V8" moment. Why pay for info that's already out there for FREE???

Monica at Smarter Fitter Blog had a great post today all about how resistance exercises can be better not only for positive changes in body composition but for overall weight loss in general. I better get movin’ in that department, I guess.

I am drooling just thinking about the recipe posted on Cheap Healthy Good for Alton Brown’s Lightened Stove Top Mac-n-Cheese. Not only do I adore all things Alton, but Mac-n-Cheese must be one of the most glorious foods EVER. I think I might just have to stop at Safeway on the way home for some stray ingredients. I’m pretty much losing my mind just thinking about it.

I've got the book now, and just tried to take a pic with my cell phone... Didn't work too well, so I'll try again later once I'm home and can find the digital!

Mmmm. Mac & Cheese... I'll be right over! ;-)


MJ, let me know how the photo op goes. Maybe bring the book and camera tomorrow and we can take a group shot.

I didn't make the Mac and Cheese :( I was too lazy to go to the store so I made pasta and meatballs instead!

Donna! Unfortunately, I didn't know about this when I had the book or else I would have taken a pic :)

Can't wait to see you next week!

I found your blog yesterday and am really enjoying it! I too am trying to reduce debt and the waistline and save!
I just made a huge pot of lentil stew for about $2 and it gave me 6 portions!


Frugal Trenches, I just tried to leave this comment over on your site, but it doesn't seem to be letting it through:

Thanks so much for leaving a comment over at my site. I bopped over to see what you are up to and got to read this lovely post! Your dream sounds absolutely wonderful and I have no doubt you’ll get there.

The perspective you shared was just what I needed to hear today. I also get ahead of myself sometimes and impatient about the things I am working towards (the house, the family…) But they will be that much more meaningful because we did have to work so hard for them. I need to focus on all the wonderful things I do have and remember that I am truly fortunate to be happy and healthy in the moment.
