In Which Jenn Reveals Her Upcoming Race Costumes

I am unlikely to ever be one of those really elaborately costumed runDisney people. Don’t get me wrong – more power to those guys! I am very impressed with your work!

Soup of the Evening, Beautiful Soup!

Who for such dainties would not stoop? … Wait, was the Mock Turtle even in the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland? He was, right? Yes? No? I can’t remember. Fail. But whatever; today I’m talking soup. It is simple. It is so simple, you don’t make it so much as assemble it. It makes a great work lunch and is infinitely customizable. The ingredients could be described as “things you like.” And while it is as delicious as you want it to be, it is also as healthy as you want it to be! I’ll walk you through...
