I'm not going to lie. Things are starting to open up more, and I am terrified. I hear the experts saying that with the number of people who have had Covid-19, and the number who are now vaccinated, that it is possible to start doing some of those things we were told to avoid for … Continue reading Opening Up
So we eat pretty healthy in our household. We are not dieters and are not crazy all-organic or anything. But we eat a pretty well-rounded diet, and we avoid processed foods, mostly. We do occasionally have junk food nights or eat fried things. And there are a few things I haven't taken to making on … Continue reading Gross Things I Ate As A Kid
So prior to the pandemic, I had put us on a pretty strict budget plan, as we decided we would like to stop paying interest on credit cards. When pandemic hit, we added the fact that we would like as little exposure to people outside our home as possible. This has all translated into us … Continue reading Take Out
Oh ya, we are still doing this. I'm hearing we may be able to get those vaccines by the end of summer. I'm cautiously optimistic and at the same time may miss this life. You know, I've kind of gotten used to it. Oh, and I'm agoraphobic, so you know, this is kind of okay. … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 45
Another week down. Numbers are getting better here, but I guess there's a long way to go to having enough vaccines available. Having K back home has been interesting and mostly good. It also means you'll get to see some of her cooking, as she loves it about as much as I do. She's agreed … Continue reading Quarantine Week 44

Phew! This last week feels like it was a couple of weeks combined! My lovely Katie (middle child) moved back home. She's been quarantining in a friend's home for about six months, but she was ready to come back. We're happy to have her back, but of course it requires some adjustments when you add … Continue reading Quarantine Week 43
It's been another week of quarantining and yes, I'm still cooking. This week, my husband looked at the meal plan and asked me very nicely not to change anything about it. I, of course, did, but only with one dinner, and it was a huge hit. Thursday (1/14) - We started the day with poached … Continue reading Quarantine Week 42
Christmas was a little different this year, but we still managed to make some cherished memories and great food.
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!
