Salmon Cauliflower Pasta Bowl

I know the CSA was last delivered over 2 weeks ago, but I still have some cauliflower left in the fridge… .and I have no idea what to do with it. Usually we just roast it in the oven until it’s tender and the edges are nicely browned. However, for some reason my kids have(…)

Fall Decor

Fall Decor

I love having decor that I can change with the seasons. I don’t want anything too labor intensive but something that makes me smile and helps me enjoy the season even more! I love fall leaves and all the beautiful fall colors that paint the landscape!

CSA Week #19

CSA Week #19

So… my very last CSA post is later than usual. To be honest I completely forgot about writing it! You’d think after 19 weeks of posting each Tuesday about the CSA that it would be routine and I wouldn’t think about it anymore! Not so! I forgot!

CSA Week #18

CSA Week #18

Sorry not much to say this week. I was out of town to visit my Dad’s side of the family in FL for a long weekend. I wish it was for happier times, but my grandfather passed away last month and we were having a memorial for him. I took Xanthie with me and the(…)

CSA Week #17

CSA Week #17

This week my update will be a little shorter and maybe a little sweeter! Since our delivery came a day later than usual it’s kinda thrown off my schedule. I usually type up this email once the boxes have arrived and we get to see what’s inside!

CSA Week #16

CSA Week #16

Fall is certainly making it’s entrance! It was in the 30s at night this week and I had to wear a sweater coming out of work last weekend! It’s nice, but kinda sad at the same time. I just need to accept the fact that summer is over and fall is here for the next(…)

CSA Week #15

CSA Week #15

As I said last week we are getting into fall and the foods that are such an enjoyable part of the season! I did make a large batch of chili which will last us for two dinners and a few lunches! It’s so nice to have an extra meal saved in the freezer for a(…)

Family Photos {2014}

Family Photos {2014}

It’s high time we have our family photos updated!  The photos we had done in 2012 are quite outdated and we’ve had a new addition since then… in fact, that addition came 13 months ago! Of course we had the privilege to have our photos done with the talented Alyssa Anne.  It’s such a treat to have(…)

CSA Week #14

CSA Week #14

I love the summer and I’m never ready to see it come to an end. I LOVE the hot weather, the pool, being outside so much and having a good cookout or picnic with friends and family. I have so many wonderful memories of summers past! But this summer is quickly coming to a close.(…)

Homeschool Curriculum for 2014/2015

Homeschool Curriculum for 2014/2015

This year is going to be a lot like last year in terms of the curriculum we are planning on using. I guess that’s a good thing! I’ve found stuff I like and that Tonchi (Hopefully Koa this year) do well with. So even though I see other new stuff that looks cool and grabs(…)

CSA Week #13

CSA Week #13

Another week has come and gone. Where does the time go? And yet there are times that Wednesdays can’t come soon enough because I want my surprise box full of veggies! I can’t believe we are on week 13. If feels like we should still be at the start of summer instead of back in(…)
