Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

Fall is here and fairs are cropping up everywhere. Since fairs are known to be well stocked with horrible junk food, beware. Make a plan before going and stick to it at the fair or just don’t go at all. Eat a healthy meal before going and avoid eating “dinner” at the fair and pick just one treat. If you must eat at the fair, get a small, plain hamburger and an ear of roasted corn.
Confession: I love kettle corn and since I have to take a pack of 6th graders, I’m hoping the Little Orbits people won’t be there. Little Orbits are tiny donuts made right before your eyes with your choice of topping. It’s fun to watch the dough squirt out into the fat, float along, flip over and be skimmed out. It’s even better to eat them, warm and fresh. Yes, we all have weaknesses. I’ll choose donuts over the kettle corn and share the bag with a friend.
Here’s hoping you have a good time at the fair and you miss the heartburn!
