Happy Monday! How was your weekend? For the most part, mine was pretty mellow. I caught up on stuff and then spent Sunday afternoon visiting my sister in her new neighborhood.

I don’t get out to Hoboken very often, but something tells me I might be making the trip a bit more now.  It’s been way too long since we lived near enough to hang out via public transportation. After checking out the new digs we got lunch at a restaurant nearby. We did a lot of walking around and soaking up the sun. It felt good to sit outside and have a glass of wine with lunch and just talk about life and stuff.

It still amuses me that people think I’m a vegetarian. I only tend to crave meat once a month or so, but I believe in paying attention to those cravings. When I started this blog over 3 years ago, I was getting quite a bit of pressure to stop eating meat and wasn’t listening to my body as much, but that didn’t work out so well.

2010 was not my year.

If nothing else, in the grand scheme of things, I’d rather have adequate iron stores.

Do you live close to your siblings? What foods do you crave sometimes?
