Weekend

March 13, 2011


The weekend is just about to an end.
Above, you can see the project Jay is still working on.
Can't wait until I can show you an "after" photo!  I suppose if I'd quit coming up with add-ons he'd be finished quicker.
I'm famous for the "you know, I was thinking......".  So far he's agreed with all my thoughts.
He worked all weekend on building the new countertop and prepping the new beadboard.  The island was not originally built very strong, so he's rebuilding as he goes.

I went to work both Saturday and Sunday and worked the weekend away.
It's amazing how much you can get done when no one is there and the phone isn't ringing.
Unfortunately, this means my house is dusty and in need of vacuuming, the laundry is piled up, and the boys smell doggy.
But, I feel better about my "to do" stack at work.  It's still a stack, but a little more in control.

Saturday, before I went to work, Jay and I went to breakfast and then to our local Farmer's Market.
There's a new vendor - a guy who sells fresh seafood.  He catches it on Friday and sells it on Saturday.
You can see from the photo below, the scallops were unbelievably good!
Sweet, juicy, tender and just plain good {especially with a little sauce made from white wine and orange juice}.
I'm so happy to add a "fishman" to my list of favorite vendors. 
He joins the "honeyman", the "cheeseman", the "milk and ice cream woman" and the "meatman".
Life is good!

The chickens are quite content.
The weather was nicer and the snow is beginning to melt.
They received treats of crushed hard boiled eggs and pancakes this weekend.  Yummy!

I made brownies tonight because they're quick, easy, and oh so yummy {recipe here}.
If you ever have an urge to make boxed brownies because they're quick, try this recipe instead.  You won't be sorry.

That was our weekend.  How was yours?

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.

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...
