Meg Makes (June 2011)
This is the season for road trips and vacations, and when I spied this press release on snacking healthily, I figured I'd pass it on. It's from Kristina Adams, spokeswoman for the Illinois Dietetic Association and registered dietitian with Carle Weight Management Center.
One thing that struck my attention: encouragement to eat baked potato chips. Don't mind if I do.
This weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in Jim Turpin's Ice Cream and Independence live radio show at Champaign's Virginia Theatre.
I'd actually never been to the event before, but I honestly think I'll never miss it again.
When I went to Thailand in 2005 with Habitat for Humanity, I was suprised by the fact that karaoke was everywhere.
We did it in big groups and in private rooms - the latter had screens showing photos that were not, uh, exactly appropriate or related to the songs.
So I mentioned this when I wrote my post about American Girl dolls a while back, but I've been thinking about it more lately.
We had an all-company cookout day last Friday, and I tried a pasta salad with fruit. Or maybe it was a fruit salad with pasta.
I occassionally get press releases from Frieda's, the produce company that provides produce to local Schnucks stores. Since this one includes delicious-looking new fruits and the promise of free samples Saturday, I figured I'd post it.
Try some new melons this summer!
