Weekend

July 10, 2011


I can't believe the weekend is over.
We had BEAUTIFUL weather.
Sigh.
Humidity is on it's way for tomorrow.

My photo collage, I realized, is almost all food.
Hmmm.....not sure why.
That seems to be what I photographed this weekend.

Let's start with the not so good.
Oliver is not feeling well.
My little man has a little hard nodule on his back hip.
It causes him some discomfort.
Hoping to get him in to see Dr. Lori tomorrow.

The chicken's garden is coming along s-l-o-w-l-y.
They are getting VERY impatient.
They are supposed to be getting dandy greens, marigolds, nasturtiums and other lettuce from their garden.
Hasn't happened yet.

I made "Eclair Cake" on Friday.
Have you made this?
It's not actually eclairs, but pudding layered with graham crackers and chocolate on top {photo above}.
I have to say it was ok.
My husband can't get enough of it.
The recipe I followed was homemade pudding, graham crackers, and melted chocolate chips.
The pudding was great.
I pulled off my graham crackers.

Speaking of my husband, he is also slightly obsessed with breakfast burritos.
Do you make these?
Again, I'm not so much a fan, but he tells me I make a heck of a breakfast burrito.
Whatever makes him happy.
Especially since he hung my garden shed shelves today.
Now it's time to organize it.

Although I'm not getting many ripe tomatoes, my farmer's market has lots of them and they are heaven.
Yum.
Tomatoes and basil.....tomatoes and cilantro.....tomatoes and pesto on puff pastry.....greek salad with tomatoes.....homemade salsa......love it all.

Hoping you had a nice weekend as well!

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...

$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...
