Food, Wine & Just Good Living With SaucyJoe

It started with a love of food, wine & fun and blossomed into a maddening pursuit of the best recipes, techniques, grills, smokers, wines, crafted beers, rubs, marinades and sauces... We do more than play with our meat though -- we review and discuss all things cooking, drinking, reading, laughing and living at SaucyJoe's.

My week of food

Sam over at Becks and Posh sent out a challenge to food bloggers out there to keep a journal of everything consumed starting last Monday and ending Sunday night. Of all the weeks to do this! It does make for a prettier set of photos than I'd have for a regular week.

Looking back at the week I realize I didn't do much for breakfast and I had plenty to drink. Took advantage of my vacation! I'll have to work on my breakfast menu. It's much better when I have a regular schedule.

It was an interesting week trying this experiment. Makes you think a lot more on what is going in your body when you have to write it up later.

I dunno. Seems to be that pumpkin pie for breakfast is a great way to start the day! Wish Sami hadn't taken my second one to all those drummers, or I could still be having it for breakfast!

It looks to me like you look after your belly extremely well. Thanks for taking part in the challenge - there is a round up of all the posts (24 entries) on my blog today.

cheers, Sam
