Fun Things to Read On A Friday

Completely on board with continuing this Lazy Saturday.

Sorry for the delay in Friday links my friends, but we had a long day at the vet yesterday with our little dog child (and an even longer night at an emergency vet hospital last night) and so things are moving Real Slow around here. Luckily the little beastie is feeling much better, and for the most part so are we. But man, let me tell you (as I do every week, it feels like) how happy I am that it is the weekend!

Have I mentioned that this was a terrible month to not be drinking? HA! In related news, Whole 30 is still trudging along. We’re just about through — Wednesday is Day 30, but I am leaving to go to Iowa again for work next week, so I may just end up doing a Whole 28 or 29. I make no promises. It’s been good this time around though — finally after 3 tries I finally the felt the “Oh hey, my skin is glowing” side effect. That has never happened before for me and it was AWESOME! I actually think I’m going to continue to Whole 30 it up for the most part through the end of the year, but how that will work is a whole other post entirely.

Oh, random interjection — Des Moines Peeps: If anyone is game for a drink Wednesday night while I am in town, shoot me an email at

Alrighty, my brain is sufficiently dumped I think, shall we get to the links?

    Oh, what a bummer! Wednesday is the night I leave for the Blathering. Maybe next time?

    I’ve been making that pita bread recipe from Gluten-Free Fix since around the time I went paleo, and it is awesome! I got a second Silpat so that I can make double batches more quickly, and I always keep some in the freezer for sandwich emergencies. I’ve pretty much given up on baking loaves of grain-free sandwich bread because these pitas are so much easier and cheaper to make.
