I learned at least one thing last week. Make that two.

Almond milk + Suzanne = bloat.
gassiness. bloated gassiness. Uncomfortable. Large. Ughhh.
NOT good. 
Back to the cow for my calcium. 
I might have made this face a few times over a two day {learning my lesson} period. 

I cooked a lovely crock pot pot roast on Monday. 
Crock pot pot roast. Say that 3x fast.
I added some rosemary from the garden and Lolo declared that when you add rosemary to anything 

And eating Christmas is good.

Being a bloated mess of a woman IS NOT GOOD.

Wishing you a great weekend with no bloat ….and may all your meals taste like a holiday.
Stay warm!

Did you learn anything this week?

  1. Bloat? Have you tried coconut milk? It tastes like nothing. Ha! I hope you stay bloat-free this weekend!And the only herb I cannot eat is rosemary. I have an aversion that can't be explained. I want to like it, but I can't even stand to smell it. I thought when I grew up it would change. Not.


  2. I LOVE almond milk, it would crush me if I got couldn't drink it anymore. Sorry, it's back to the cow for you… I'm planning on making a roast on Sunday (typical German food, roast, Kloesse (dumplings), red cabbage, salad) and I'll have to try your Christmas version. Sounds delish!


  3. I learned how wonderful electric blankets are when the temperature drops below zero several nights in a row. I hope you're feeling better and that we warm up. That way we can both have a good weekend.


  4. hmmm…and i was almost going to try almond milk. not now! but i love that face you make ;)christmas pot roast?! yum! i might have to try rosemary again…you know how i love holidays!

    We tried the almond milk…did not like it! The roast sounds delicious. Really cold here the last 2 mornings – 9 degrees. You guys have a nice weekend.


  6. I love rosemary. It's in my garden too. It's a wonder I don't kill it dragging my hand over it every time I go outside…love the smell on my hands. : ) So sorry you had trouble with almond milk. I use lots of it. Have you tried coconut milk? It's yummy. (carton..not the can stuff) It's supposed to be better for you than almond milk.


  7. Kay, I have tried the almond milk as well. I've had no SIDE effects….but it doesn't taste as good as the almond milk. Perhaps I will keep trying to LOVE it. (yes, I am trying the carton) I am a persistent one ya know…..XOXO


  8. oh that is not good, but i love that picture of you! i like vanilla almond milk in my coffee and cereal! and you know, now that you mention it, rosemary does make things taste like christmas, i love that!


  9. Ha ha I love the face you make !!We have been crock pot cooking a lot this month ~ I love a roast cooked in the crock pot .Next time I am adding Christmas~ err I mean Rosemary, to it though !Bloating makes me just want to float off into space and hide behind a cloud for the day until I deflate 😉


  10. Some of my favorite foods do that to me, so I've had to stop eating them…and just had two of them at a friend's dinner party last night. WHEW! I can relate to your almond milk episode. SO good, yet so bad. Have you tried coconut milk or soy milk yet? I like coconut, but haven't tried the soy.


  11. I love my milk….2% but still milk. I haven't tried the almond, silk or coconut. I bloat no matter what. I probably suck air.It's only 22 degrees this morning and I think I will make something in the crockpot too. Your pot roast sounds like a good idea. Oh, and one more thing….I want that dress!!!!
