I know I wrote a heartfelt "letter" to all my readers last week and may have even suggested I would not have another post in 2020, but I just couldn't resist. Don't worry, I am not going to do another reflection on this incredibly weird, sometimes very sad, sometimes infuriating year. Instead, I want to … Continue reading Adiós 2020!
Month: December 2020
Coming to you live from…my kitchen. Christmas 2020.
Christmas was a little different this year, but we still managed to make some cherished memories and great food.
Merry Vegan Christmas!
Not being able to cook a big dinner for my family and friends because of Covid definitely sucks. However, we have found a few ways to cope this year. One of my major ways is to prepare a full dinner for my vegan daughter, Mel, who lives just a few miles away, and deliver it … Continue reading Merry Vegan Christmas!
Quarantine Life Week 39
With Christmas almost here, I did a little cooking...okay, maybe a lot of cooking. Thursday (12/17) - We had take out. I felt like it had been a while and was in the mood for something new. However, it was very cold and wet out, so we didn't want to have to go too far … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 39
Quarantine Week 38
We are the point where a woman could have gotten pregnant and given birth, or be about to give birth, during this pandemic. Sorry, the count of weeks just brought this to mind. I almost feel like we are all feeling like a pregnant woman in her last trimester, hopeful and yet still totally terrified. … Continue reading Quarantine Week 38
Ingredients I’ve Stopped Buying
In 2019, I did a blog about things that I've discovered that are easy to make and taste better than premade or in-a-box versions. Let me tell you, I was just a baby home-cook then. I've expanded that a lot this last year. I wanted to take a moment to talk about some ingredients I … Continue reading Ingredients I’ve Stopped Buying
Reflecting on 2020
2020 is not quite over, but it will be in ten short days. Okay, a couple of them may feel pretty long. But as I started jotting down notes for my latest blog post idea, I began reflecting on this year. I began this blog in April of 2018. It's been a fun little hobby, … Continue reading Reflecting on 2020
Quarantine Life Week 37
I can really feel myself getting back into the cooking. I am debating getting a better webcam and making some videos. I'll probably test them out on YouTube first just to see if they get any response, but a few people have asked. Onto this week's food creations: Thursday (12/3) - We just did leftovers … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 37
Quarantine Life Week 36
Our post Thanksgiving week did not involve the usual "how to use leftovers in new dishes" menu that it usually does since I tailored our meal to be for just the husband and me. I will admit that I missed the usual chicken or turkey salad the next day. We did have a bit of … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 36
Thanksgiving Dinner Part 2 – the Main Event
So after much debate on how to handle pandemic style Thanksgiving, I decided the husband and I would have our own little Thanksgiving feast. He suggested we do a virtual online pop-in for any friends and family who wanted to join. We set up a Google meet session to run from 4pm-8pm. We set up … Continue reading Thanksgiving Dinner Part 2 – the Main Event
