We have officially landed at our family’s favorite time of year. The weather is cool enough (even in the sun) to venture outdoors without having to rely on a cool water to dip into and you can pack snacks and food into the car without having to worry about everything melting. Here’s what I am up to this weekend with the fam: Read More
My body has been craving greens for weeks and my CSA box (and the weather and the farm bounty) finally complied. We have greens this week! Also have some beautiful carrots, okra, green beans, and those peppers are holding on. Happy cooking!
Tuscan Kale and White Bean Stew with Breadcrumb Topping*
Red Lentils with Lime & Spinach**
Chard & Soyrizo Frittata*** | Oven-Baked Home Fries
Tofu, Grilled Green Beans, Brown Rice
Stuffed Acorn Squash
Just checked out the list of contents for my CSA box and it appears that peppers are going to be in there… again. Peppers + October apparently = Texas.
Carving out time for the kitchen has been challenging this week. Reminding myself that I can do it in bits – sauce this morning, veggie chopping later…
We had a busier weekend than expected and the cooler weather triggered all sorts of knitting urges that, unfortunately, were tended to in place of my weekday meal prep. It is going to make for a slightly busier Monday night, but I still think that we can pull off a solid week of homemade meals. Here is what I have tentatively planned:
Monday – Seitan con Papes | Frijoles | Arroz
Tuesday – Leftovers & Takeout
Wednesday – Summer Lasagna*
Thursday – Grain, Protein & Veggie Bowls
Friday – Tacos
Saturday – Veggie Dogs and Veggie Sides
Snacks & Beverages
Smoothies (lots of different kinds)
Oatmeal Bread for sandwiches
Fresh Apple Juice
I don’t think it is too ambitious, but I shall have to see how it stacks up against the week. Happy cooking!

Did you notice that I gave things a refresh around here? I thought a new (and significantly less cluttered) blog format might be just the thing that I need to jump-start some digital house-cleaning. We talk a lot in our house about being present and staying focused on what is happening right now. Running our own business and keeping up with the 11yo’s busy life makes this challenging enough, so I am making a conscientious effort to reduce distractions. Weaning myself off my phone addiction seems like the next natural step.
On that note, here is what I am up to IRL:
- It is radish season again. Hooray! Hurrah! I’m snacking on ones that the fabulous Mary Helen gifted me. She rocks in more ways than one.
- I’m reading Monday, Monday by Elizabeth Crook.
- Things are back to normal at my Flickr acct (Instagram was the first thing that I had to cut out).
- Trying to squeeze in a daytime screening of Gone Girl. Have you read the book?
- I am really looking forward to using the last of my peppers.
- Haven’t picked up a legitimate knitting project since the move. It is time.
What are you up to this weekend?
