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.

all things food

I tried to order one last batch of tomatoes this week only to realize that tomato season (at least the part of it that allows you to buy large quantities) is now over. Sigh. It is August next week. Double sigh. In slightly happier news…  we hosted this month’s ATXswappers at our office and discovered that pear season is starting! You can peek at what our week looked like via my Flickr stream.

Spring Break officially kicks off in our household tomorrow. We will then be launched, rather quickly, into a whirlwind of weekend activity that includes soccer games, marches on the Capitol Building, a birthday visit from my youngest sister and the hard-to-avoid reality that is SXSW.

I’ve been sick for a few days and finally have my energy back so off to the kitchen I go! We have some other stuff (very belated gift shopping, food deliveries, birthday parties, and maybe a basketball game) this weekend so I spent the greater portion of tonight getting some basic ingredients ready. I chopped veggies for omelets and the one soup I am making this weekend. Got greens portioned up into salads. Got black […]
