Last week kicked our butts, but we survived and even managed to squeeze in some quality time with my mama. Meal plans help me get my bearings in the kitchen and, in turn, the time in the kitchen helps ground me altogether. Lots of food to put up, a recipe coming later this week, and I am about to start a new hashtag to help track the fig explosion that is about to happen – #figlandia.
