One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


First Sauce of the Season

7 Comments 1349 views

Way back when I mentioned the husband’s love of my homemade spaghetti sauce. I mean he really loves this stuff. Between the months of October and April if it’s the only thing I made it would be the only thing he ate, no complaints. It’s quit hysterical, and flattering, I think. :~)

Anyway, now that the weather broke and it finally feels like fall, I made a huge batch. It was awesome. The smell through the house got me in the mood to bake so I made some Halloween Brownie Bites (I’ll post the recipe tomorrow). I truly LOVE being home on the weekends and cooking. It’s just a great time spent with the toddler, who by the way, appreciated both the sauce and the brownies! Nothing is more satisfying for me then to see the toddler eating good healthy food.

Besides cooking, I hit the gym and had a great workout this morning. The toddler has his tumble bees class Saturday morning at the Y and I’ve been taking advantage of the free child care afterwards.

Other news….

I’ve been working on a new site and I hope to have it ready in the next month or two. Since the “big crash”, I’ve lost the ability to customize WeightWatchen as much as I want to. I also realized there are quite a few recipes up here and I think we need a better way to access them, no? Along with the new site, I will be revamping some of my older food ideas. I think my recipe writing skills are getting better and more detailed since I started. I’m learning! ;~)

Oh! and keep an eye out on my DietDetective blog. My new post about “scale angst” should be up there soon,

Sensational SundayThat’s my Saturday news. I do plan on making tomorrow a Sensational Sunday! We are traveling to a local corn maize for a day trip. Every year we go, and every year we walk for about 2 hours straight. I love workouts that aren’t workouts!

I’ll be back tomorrow with the brownie pictures and Monday with my daily menus.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    So pumped to make this sauce!
    Quick question for anyone…I am trying to find the Vitalicious products…I live in Ontario Canada and searched all around town today…I know that there is a link that Roni provided and it says that they are available in Canada but cannot find them…can anyone help?
    Thanks! Tanya from Ontario Canada

    Tanya, you will probably need to order them from the web site. That’s what I do because they are not sold anywhere in my area. I buy the mixes and make them myself. I think they are actually better than the vitatops they sell. Here’s the web site

    Michele – thank you so much. I really appreciate your help.
    Do you live in Ontario?

    Hi Tanya – No, I live in Florida. They sell Vitalicious products about an hour or so from me but I just prefer to get them through the mail instead of driving that far. Have a good day! :)
