20 Things I Look Forward To Doing This Spring

March 26, 2014

One of these days Spring will actually make it's way to the East coast and I can't wait!  As much as I adore Winter, like most people, I'm over it for this year.  Here are some of the things I can't wait to do {in no particular order}:

  1. Eat tons of stale peeps.  Why stale you ask?  Well, my husband and his sister have taught me that peeps taste a LOT better when they have aged a bit.  Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.  Yummmmm!
  2. Dye Easter eggs
  3. Shop at the farmer's markets
  4. eat freshly picked asparagus, fiddleheads and morels {including an amazing frittata that incorporates all 3!}
  5. Prep and plant the garden
  6. Cook dinners on the grill
  7. Make rhubarb cobbler, jam and bread
  8. Take the dogs walking in the park
  9. Dig out my flip-flops
  10. Watch my daffodils slowly awaken
  11. Make 2 spring wreaths for my front doors
  12. Make the switch to iced coffee
  13. Plant an herb garden {they are currently in the regular garden but will be getting their own space this year!}
  14. Going outdoors without a jacket {and gloves, and scarf....}
  15. Spring cleaning
  16. Opening windows to bring fresh air into the house
  17. Having our toilet work correctly.  Hooray!!  {we found out thru the cold of this winter we need insulation around the pipe going to the septic tank and a larger vent}
  18. Watching the flowering trees bloom
  19. Rock this shirt
  20. Eat strawberries.  A LOT of strawberries.
What about you?  What do you look forward to doing this Spring?

    12 Tips For Eating Real Food On A REAL Budget

    February 15, 2018

    1. Maximize Less Expensive Foods
    Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

    February 13, 2018

    If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year. Rather than setting easily forgotten resolutions I wanted to focus on 12 changes that would help me learn and grow as a person. I’ve chosen to focus on one change per month so that it could not only become a more manageable goal, but I have a better chance at making these new habits...

    February 11, 2018

    If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Food lifestyle.  Our grocery budget is $100.00/week for 2 adults.  Often I make 2 different meals because I am primarily plant-based and my husband is not.  Most of what we eat is made from scratch and any boxed, canned and/or frozen products follow the Real Food...
