Let's Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson

Hi, my name is Tina and I am a recovering diet addict. My first official one started in the 8th grade and all the fat ladies at Weight Watchers told me how much they wish they could have done this at my age. The addiction went downhill from there. Even though I could see that manipulating food could produce weight loss, I bought in hook line and sinker. I came to the proper conclusion when confronted with scripture on the subject. This is a book review, so enough of the confessions and on to my latest read “Let’s Do Lunch” by Roger Troy Wilson.



Wilson weighed in excess of 400 pounds and discovered a way to eat as much as he wants and loose weight. That eating plan is laid out in “Let’s Do Lunch.” The majority of the book is Wilson’s personal story of loss and gain, as well as recipes that adhere to the “Let’s Do Lunch” eating plan. Chapters 2-6 are the plan itself and the reader is encouraged time and again to read those four chapters three times.
This book is easy to read and the eating plan is simple enough to follow. It is almost impossible to gain weight with the plan that laid out in the book, even though you can pig out at every meal. There are testimonies about weight loss through out the book from people who have had great success with the “Let’s Do Lunch” eating plan.
The plan is a very fluid, making it easy and almost too vague at the same time. The Fourteen Day Meal Guide in Chapter 7 is almost worthless with its constant repetition and prolific use of “Bill’s Mashed Potatoes” which are used at least once a day for eleven of the fourteen days.
Overall, it is another diet, which almost tempted me, but in the end, God won out.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
