EZ-I think so.

Laura's is very low fat first of all-96%lean/4% fat...but the biggest thing for me, is that the beef is grown without all of the hormones and antibiotics and crap they pump in the average beef cow.

My inlaws, and my father have all raised cows and other animals for meat-they live on farms-and they don't give them all that stuff-but mass produced meat usually does.

I like the idea of not eating meat that is all "hopped up" on chemicals and drugs. I also buy organic produce when possible...but that is a whole other rant. :)

Awww Amanda, so sorry. I have been sick for 2 weeks now, so I feel your pain.

We are at prime tt age and dd is learning quickly that is a short road to nowhere. After lunch the other day I needed to get cough syrup. She loves to shop. First she started whining because she wanted to go to Safeway not rite aid. Cut that short with a glare. Then we went in riteaid and they only have those little bitty carts. With a sigh of relief I hefted the infant carrier in the front. (We had just walked 4 blocks from the restaurant rather than repark. That dang thing is HEAVY). She immediately did a melt down "I want to sit in the cart" whine and I picked him back out grabbed her hand and marched out of the store and the 4 blocks back to the car. Did I mention she LOVES shopping? Whoo buddy.

But I still didnt have my cough syrup. Who exactly got punished there?

Susan, those are very very cute shoes. I can't believe you got them for such a great price! I'll have to remember eBay whenever I'm shopping for dress shoes.

Let's see, today I bought:

From Bed, Bath & Beyond (I had been given a gift card a LONG time ago and figured I should use it before I forgot about it.):

A crock pot (my first one ever... bought so I could make tender shredded chicken tacos and try out an overnight steel cut oats recipe)
Pancake spatula
Spoon rest
Flexible cutting boards
Microwave veggie steamer

Then from the grocery:
4 Fuji apples (for oats recipe)
Pack of chicken breasts (for tacos!)
Raisins (for oats recipe)
Onion (also for tacos)
Bell Pepper (see above)

I also filled up my gas tank today on the way to school because it was really empty... haha.

Oh, and then a 6" subway sub for lunch. I went to Kroger immediately after to get a bottle of water, some carrots, and a fruit cup to go with it.

Man, I was expensive today... :)
