Party Like a Rock Star…Or Not

Hey Saturday, nice to see you!

Hope everyone had a fun-filled Friday.  I was out after work with friends where we engaged in $1 margarita drinking (Or well, I drank ice tea because I’m cool like that), which was followed by game night at my friend Keith’s. It was a male v. female game of Taboo, which has been done before, and usually results in a shouting match between the two teams. We’re a little too competitive.  🙂

Sadly, no pictures because I forgot my camera. Boo.

Anyway, I’m up and ready to go today, though I don’t have much planned. So, here’s my compilation of food/nutrition news from the week!

Post College Cook dishes up her own tips for healthy eating and gives out her suggestions for healthy on-the-go snacks.

She also just released “Clara’s Kitchen: Wisdom, Memories, and Recipes from the Great Depression.” That’s one awesome granny. Here’s a video that her filmmaker grandson shot a few years back.
