Saturday the weather was amazing!  I was able to get quite a bit done in the garden which always makes me happy.  I planted some additional spinach, kale, radish & herbs.  Sunday wasn't awful but the rain made a bit of a return.

Unfortunately, Ollie had a bit of a bad weekend.  His left hip was bothering him.  That darn Hip Dysplasia!  I feel so bad for the guy.  He spent most of Saturday using only 3 legs.

Jack was as helpful as always.  My goodness, the guy is a workaholic!  Saturday proved to be very busy for him as he felt obligated to help his dad change out the kitchen faucet and hook up the Reverse Osmosis machine.  While we were pulling tubing Jack was right there, making sure it was done correctly.  All open cupboards were inspected prior to our working in them as well as after.  I mean, this guy was busy!

Don't you love that his teeth show in his photos?  I think it's adorable.

Of course, with it being Father's Day weekend and all, the "kids" and I had to get Jay a gift.  We ordered something very special.......


.......Dungeness crab from Pike Place Fish.  If you've ever been to Pike Place Market in Seattle, this is the place that throws {literally} whole salmon around.

It's a bit of a splurge, but for special occasions we order whole King Salmon {for me} and Dungeness Crab {for him}.  These are 2 of the food items we miss from Washington State......Frango's would be the third.

The box came but the boys weren't so sure dad would like it, so they had to check it out quite thoroughly.


Emerson gave the "paws up" but Oliver needed to investigate just a little further before he could give his own approval.  Thankfully, the box passed and dad was allowed to open it up.


And look what was inside!  A few of these lovely crustaceans.


Can you guess what Jay had for dinner????  {with his "stolen" pick that they tell you you can steal when you buy crab at Joe's Crab Shack}


He said it was absolutely delicious!  {he would like me to note that he only ate one - the remainder are in the freezer.  :-)}

Hoping you had a wonderful weekend and Happy Father's day to any Fathers reading this!

$100.00/week Real Food Weekly Meal Plan - Week 17

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...

DELICIOUS Chicken Marinade For Juicy Chicken Every Time

April 17, 2018


Chicken breasts can be bland and dry if you aren't using a flavorful marinade or sauce.  That is what we experienced, until we began using this SUPER simple marinade.  I use this whenever I want the chicken to have just a bit more flavor or if it's going to be standing on it's own.  I use it on chicken when I make grilled chicken, grilled chicken subs, Quick & Easy Chicken Parm, chicken for...
