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(…)
I’ve long missed boxed mac n’ cheese… I know… it’s one of the worst foods in the world for you but it is SO good! All those chemicals, preservatives, fake ingredients and food coloring and I still crave it!
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!
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(…)
To be honest, this was a very hard decision to make. In fact, at first I wasn’t 100% sold on the idea. I’d used a few other brands that I’d purchased at Whole Foods, Frontiers and a few other places. I thought maybe some of the oils had helped a little, but I wasn’t sold(…)
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(…)
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 The photos we had done in 2012 are quite outdated and we’ve had a new addition since then… in fact, that addition came 13 months ago!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(…)
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.(…)
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(…)
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(…)
I have LOTS of veggies on had after getting our CSA share yesterday, and not a lot of anything else on hand for lunches! I few pieces of leftover chicken and that’s about it… The kids were happy dipping the chicken in some homemade BBQ sauce with some cucumbers and apples on the side and(…)
But we had a dinner with friends and it was huge!!! There were 4 families which included 8 adults and 10 kiddos! The time together really was great! I made Mafe and everyone talked about how good it was and why hadn’t I shared the recipe… I HAVE!!! Quite a few times! Its is my(…)
School started this week! And so far so good! We usually start the 2nd week in September and did exactly that again this year! It’s been nice to be back on a schedule, but at the same time it makes me feel so busy and so much to do that I’m not giving us a(…)
We didn’t have a CSA delivery last week because of the Labor Day Weekend. So I wondered what I was going to post since we didn’t get our weekly delivery of fresh veggies! I figured I should do something about food and good food at that! Usually Tuesday is my recipe day, but I haven’t(…)
