Good evening friends,
How is every one doing? Big weekend plans…. well Lori does – she is off to Canada for a friends wedding. For me, no big plans but work… got a few orders to do this weekend.
Hope everyone liked Lori’s post earlier today or least got you thinking. We both just care so much about everyone’s health that we wanted to share what we have learned and noticed in our health involving fitness. It was a doozie for a Friday afternoon.
Ok now onto the food!
At the farmers market tomorrow we are taking a new recipe and wanted to share with all of you. We are pretty happy with the results We made this late last night…. so bare with us we did not really write anything down… all based on memory.
