The sick has got the energy in the house on mute. Naps, audiobooks, podcasts, music, and a fair share of video streaming are going in everyone’s respective corners. We seem to have survived the weekend, but there is much to catch up on and I suspect the 11yo has at least a couple of more days of watch she disparagingly refers to as “sick activities” before she can get back to normal. Good news is […]
I ended up with a little more variety than originally expected, but we seem to have eaten through way more of our veggies last week than I planned. I picked up a few extra things – cauliflower and an acorn squash from the grocery store to help. I am also trying a completely new (to me) bean this week – the mayocoba. Trying to find my 2015 work-home rhythm so everything else is pretty regular. […]
It’s Halloween week which also means that it’s the week before his birthday so we are running in a few different directions. Quick list of the quick meals that I have in mind for the week.
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: Meals Monday – Seitan con Papes | Frijoles | Arroz Tuesday – Leftovers […]

I am ready for meditative prep times, slow simmering meals and calming thoughts. Monday Breakfast – Multi-Grain Toaster Waffles with Pear Butter | Smoothies Dinner – Winter Greens Soup* | Roasted Veggies Tuesday Girls breakfast out at 24 Diner Dinner – Mac and Cheese & Brussel […]
I’ve come to the slow realization that my daughter is much more disciplined than I am. She’s one of those kids that makes her bed in the morning and that is acutely aware of the time of the day and how much time she has left until “the next thing.” She is also (even in spite of herself) very much a kid that sometimes just doesn’t dig what’s for dinner. She doesn’t mind beets and […]
This week is going to work a little bit differently because I will be doing a week-long taco cleanse in support of the brave Austin food bloggers that are taco-cleansing for the entire month of September! That means tacos for breakfast, lunch and dinner for me every day for seven straight days. The fam has agreed to join me for a MILD challenge (one day) with intermittent support throughout the week as I try to make […]
