This is going to be a quick post because I have to catch the train to go back to work this morning.  I am hoping I’ll have time to pick up breakfast at Revival Food Hall – the couple times I’ve tried to go it’s been a madhouse, so we’ll see!

I used to pick a winner of my 8 year blog anniversary.

I’ve been reading for several years – probably 4 or 5. I think I relate to you because we share many of the same struggles. Congrats on successfully making it 8 years, and to at least 8 more!

I’ve got a busy couple days ahead of me, so I am looking forward to getting bizzy in my kitchen on Sunday.  I still miss the sounds of football in the background on Sunday’s, and Tony yelling at the Bears coaching staff like he did all the time.

And next week I am going to share my super quick recipe for creamy polenta with steak, sautéed mushrooms and a fried egg.  I had this for brunch yesterday and this kept me full for hours!  And this whole plate came in at just 11 smart points!

I hope you have a great weekend!  See you on Monday and make it a great day!
