Spaghetti and Meatballs! We decided to make spaghetti and meatballs after church on Sunday and ended up having a blast! I had never made them from scratch but figured they couldn’t be much more difficult than meatloaf which (if I do say so myself) I think I have mastered. Okay Lets get started! With my apron [...]

Vegetable Pusher

Posted May 10th, 2013 by Lisa. Comment (0).

Yep, you read that right. I think my new official title should be vegetable pusher (no not drug pusher). Everywhere I go I end up telling people which vegetables they should eat or that they should simply eat MORE vegetables. Most recent example- an innocent “victim” at the local Hy-Vee grocery store. Last night I [...]

Irresponsibility- Take responsibility now

Posted March 14th, 2013 by Lisa. Comment (0).

After a good message at church on Sunday about irresponsibility… I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Of course, as a future dietitian, I relate most things back to health and wellness. The message was about how God created us to take responsibility for our actions. However, human nature and sin makes us [...]
