Icelandic Food

Ok, what do you think of when you hear someone say.." lets go out for Icelandic Food tonight honey!"

I had to think?  I don't think I have ever seen a restaurant of such sort?  Since we are hoping to get to Iceland this Fall for a few days, I had to do some research. What will we be eating?  I am far from being a picky eater, but I have to admit...this kind of made me wonder if I will be eating much there at all! lol

 Recipes that I have found on-line:

Svið og sviðasulta - Sheep's heads and sheep's head jam Sunnudags-lambasteik - traditional Sunday roast

Beinlausir fuglar - "Boneless Birds" Lifrarbuff - Liver patties

Steiktar Rjúpur - Fried rock ptarmigan Lifrarpylsa - Icelandic style Haggis

Lambakæfa - Lamb Pâté Rúllupylsa - Rolled Sausage

Biximatur - Leftover meat medley Mjólkursoðinn lundi - Puffin in milk sauce

 I even found " sheeps testicals" on the list of common foods.
Ok, so now I see why we don't see too many Icelandic Restaurants in our area....but I am willing to give it a try!  This could be very interesting! HA!  heck! I can't even pronounce their words or speak a word of their language.  ( shhh! but I will be packing a few granola bars in my suitcase! The food in France will surely make up the calories!)

How to Make a SkinnyGirl Margarita

It seems to be all the rage...however, it isn't too hard to make at home.   I'm more of a wine drinker...but I found this today! I am going to have to have the girls over for a fun Skinny Girl Party this summer for sure!

Fitness Fever!

I just got back from my very first Fitness Convention/Conference. What a blast that was!  I've been flying high ever since.....  I blogged about it on my other " family" blog.  I can't stop talking about it...so I have to share it here TOO!

Life on the Bay Blog

A new healthy food * find *

  30 calories per thick slice ( large) 0.2 grams of fat, 1 % sodium and 1.5 grams of fiber!  ( 12%)  They are sooo good!    I love them with a tuna fish mixture I make up. I can of tuna fish - drained of water. ( not oil), fat free mayo, fat free sour cream, 2 chopped olives, minced onion, minced celery and carrots. Mix, ( serve warm or cold) and enjoy! 

 My new favourite lunch!
