    I was talking to a client today who has been in a rut. A back injury, kids schedules, work schedules and maybe feeling a little frustrated all got in the way. Now she is motivated and excited because she has started to see some changes in her body. We had a little conversation about the “c” word….CONSISTENCY - She thought “c” was for cardio, which is also very important and for another blog!

    Improvement and change occur when you do things often. Stopping and starting all the time will kill ... Read More

    Around The Water Cooler: Redskins Lose To Panthers, 21-13

    The Washington Redskins had a spirited Homecoming Weekend with more than 150 alumni in attendance for their game yesterday against the Carolina Panthers.

    But the Redskins couldn't find the offensive or defensive consistency they needed in the game, and lost 21-13 in front of 79,767 fans at FedExField.

    It was certainly a frustrating day for the Redskins, who, at many points in the game, outplayed the Panthers (2-6) — and certainly on offense. But ultimately, a lack of execution — as well as several drive-killing penalties — was too much ... Read More

    When you hear Carolina, you think barbeque, right? 

    Well, here at Dinner Matters, when we hear Carolina we think…barbeque too! We love a good pig pickin’, slow cooked flavors, and meat falling off the bone. But, we also love the lighter side of barbeque, something packed with flavor, and easy to do.

    Our Mesquite Grilled Salmon fits the bill. Four simple ingredients and five easy steps. We like to pair this with brown rice and French green beans to keep it healthy all the way through!

  • Monday Morning Water Cooler: Redskins Lose To Steelers, 27-12

    10.29.2012 / Blog Posts Redskins

    Andrew Walker

    Yesterday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was just one of those occasions where not much went right for your Washington Redskins.

    The defense struggled to stop both the run and the pass, while the offense had a tough time simply catching the football and making the plays it needed to keep up with the quick-paced Pittsburgh offense. The result was a 27-12 Redskins loss at Heinz Field.

    The Redskins' three scoring drives ended in two field goals and a touchdown. The touchdown drive featured a gutsy play call on fourth down that was two yards from the ... Read More

    Sam Malone McCormack, Dinner Matters

    This week’s game takes us to Pittsburgh – and who can’t help but think about a delicious Primanti Brothers Sandwich! For those who have not had the scrumptious pleasure – imagine your favorite deli sandwich, topped with fries and coleslaw. The complete deal – but maybe just a little filling…

    Our healthy twist on this favorite is a flank steak in a simple, yet flavorful Asian-style marinade, paired with spicy sweet coleslaw. While here at Dinner Matters, we don’t normally make this into a sandwich – we think that the thinly sliced steak, on a soft ... Read More
