We have nothing going on this weekend other than our rescheduled family photos after Piper’s stomach bug last weekend. I think we’ll get ahead of the game and put up our Christmas decorations. I’m typically one to wait until after Thanksgiving, but with the snow already flying, it doesn’t seem at ... Read More about Classic Vegetable Soup
I don’t talk a lot about my work as a Registered Dietitian (RD) or Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) because the vast majority of my day-to-day work is spent in meetings or other management and leadership “stuff”.
