May I vent for just a moment?
So, as you all know, I love our public school. I’ve given you all innumerable reasons why that is so and, as I’ve said, our school rocks. It truly does. We have wonderful teachers and opportunities.
I was not exactly amused [...]
If you haven’t heard that bottled salad dressing has some junky stuff in it, you’ve probably been living under a rock. I kid. But, seriously, it seems everywhere I turn, someone is waxing eloquently about the ills and evils of buying a bottle of ranch.
They’re not wrong:
There are [...]
I’ve been foraging! This has been long-time, semi-secret dream of mine. For whatever reason, I’m positively fascinated by the idea of eating weeds and invasives.
This week will include just a couple recipes involving foraged food, but I really do hope to become more knowledgable in that arena. You can find [...]
Hey there! So, I’ve got a bad case of Spring fever and I’m too entranced by sunshine and birdsong to think super clearly. I asked myself, “What on earth do I have to say that’s funny or profound today?” Answer? Nada.
So I decided that I’d just take you along with [...]
It has been glorious around here! (My apologies to those of you still looking at snow– surely Spring is right around the corner!)
I compiled the month’s menu plan and did my “big” shopping trip last week. On the plan this month? Quite a few sandwiches, since we have lots of [...]
Sundays are wacky around here. Because we go to church so very early, we wind up eating “brunch” at about 9:15 in the morning. Obviously, we can’t then make it all the way until suppertime without eating something.
Often, we’ll have popcorn and yogurt or some such simple thing. But, on days [...]
I’m not going to lie to you all– I’m glad last week is over!
All went well, but it was definitely a busy one. The funniest moment, for me, was when I was flying from CCD (where I teach and my children attend) at 5:24 pm to make it to the [...]
There’s a reason Nestle Crunch bars have been around for a gazillion (okay, 76) years. They’re really tasty! They’re simple and universally pleasing and rare is the person who declares, “ew, I hate Crunch bars.”
What would make them better? Darker chocolate, perhaps.
I’m also a huge sucker for chocolate covered [...]
It’s busy, busy Spring!
Spring Break was lovely, but now it’s done. This week marks opening day for baseball; our first game happens to fall on the same day as my last church school class for the year, so I’ll be running like a wild woman. C. also starts back at [...]
I’ve been eating a lot of egg dishes for breakfast lately. Mainly, this is due to the fact that I discovered that my energy levels stay much more consistent through the days if I avoid grains for breakfast and lunch. Maybe I’ll write more about that some other time but, for now, I’m [...]
