Have you ever had the type of weekend that seemed super busy but in the end, you really didn't get anything accomplished?  That was this weekend for us.  I'm not sure where all the time went, but I really don't feel as though we did much with it.

The garden is doing very well.  Mr. Woodchuck and family seemed to have packed their bags for the moment which is allowing my lettuce, beets, kohlrabi and carrots to thrive.  My tomato plants are taller than me and filled with green tomatoes.  Hopefully with sunshine this week they'll begin turning red.

It appears as though I need to provide the chickens another pep talk.  The production has decreased again.  Last time we suspected worms and after de-worming, found out we were correct.  I think this time it's just the weather.  This week is supposed to be mostly dry and not so hot and humid so I have high hopes.

Next weekend I'm attending a canning class by Marisa McClellan of Food In Jars.  I think we're making Plum Jam which I've never made or tried before.  After the canning class I'll be attending another food swap.  I'm bringing more of the Strawberry-Chipotle BBQ Sauce and I'm not sure what else.  I'm thinking of Vanilla and Sea Salt Caramel Sauce or a Chocolate Sauce but I haven't completely decided.

I've done zero baking for months since it's been too hot but tonight I'm making Blueberry Hand Pies.  Doesn't that sound scrumptious?  I've also promised my husband Chocolate Zucchini Cake this week - it's his favorite {yes Mom, I'll be dropping off some to you too!}.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

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.

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...

$100.00/Week Real Food Meal Plan - Week 7

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...
