   I feel like I have been talking about getting back into a groove for at least a month… maybe longer. 2016 has been exhausting so far! I’ve managed to scribble lofty what to eat lists, but nothing anywhere close to my more regular meal plans. I had illusions (delusions) of a quick adjustment period when we started homeschooling, but now see that we are gonna have to really rework the hows and whens of […]

ready for summer

preserving the seasons

This happens to me every April. It has to do with wanting to be done with the busy that always comes at this time of year (summer tends to be a bit of a break in that regard). Also… my pantry is very, very sad. Tomatoes are low. Pickles are gone. All that is left is peppers, peppers, and ketchup and there is only so much kitchen magic that can come of it. I want […]

Wowzers. Trying my best to find my way back to the kitchen this week after months of hard and a grief-filled March. I am counting on you April! Bring on Spring. Bring on the warmer weather. Bring on the loquats! I’ll be back when there is more and please do peek in at my Instagram and Twitter feeds (links in the nav somewhere). I am most certainly doing and making stuff.

happy CSA day!

   Once it hits spring, we switch from a medium share to large share at our local farm and with the 12yo home for all but one of her weekly meals, this switch could not have come at a better time. We are going through LOTS of food at el castillo. This stash is obviously going to occupy me in the kitchen today and that, too, could not be better-timed. The sweet potato mountain is […]

   It has been a hard few days around here and the kitchen has been reduced to absolute function. Mac & cheese, quick sandwiches, and nachos are about all that is happening in there. In place of magic and care there has been ramen. I don’t think we can stand it much longer, so today I am busting out the slow cooker. If all goes as planned, there will be posole at the end of […]
