Breakfast hash and deluxe salad club

I normally make my breakfast at home and just bring it to work to eat. It takes me a long time to eat so I like not to be rushed. More than not, I prefer a savory breakfast over sweet and if I can add some veggies in the mix even better. As I was…

I asked for sun….

Before I get started in today’s post I found out over the weekend that my e-mail was hacked – so if you got a mysterious e-mail from slim-shoppin@comcast.net DO NOT open the link – it’s probably a virus – so sorry about that! I had dozens of people e-mail me telling me so thanks for…
