Ya'll know I love grocery stores and grocery shopping. The pandemic took that away mostly. I mean, I got to shop online and curbside pick up or have groceries delivered. But that was so limiting. And Asian groceries were the hardest items to find online at the places I could easily order from. So that … Continue reading Asian Food Markets
Ya'll, I did it. I went into Savory Spice. If you've ready many of my blogs, you've heard a lot about this particular shop. Not only do they carry the very best spices, they are amazing people. Pre-pandemic, I was in the shop at least once a week. I swear I was making up a … Continue reading Oh My Beloved Spice Shop!
Well, we are officially living a less quarantined life. We go to grocery stores (not that often), and I've been doing some patio dining (again, not that often), but we are still being cautious. Our 11-year-old is a bit from being able to be vaccinated, so we are still a little protective. But we are … Continue reading Semi-Quarantine Life Week 57
That title alone is anxiety producing. Don't get me wrong, I am excited. I am also very nervous about what life looks like when we can exit the bubble. I mean, we're only going to be doing a partial exit for now because of our youngest daughter, but things are going to change, and it … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 56 – Hopefully Our Last Week of Full Lockdown
As many of you know, my household has been on a pretty tight lockdown since March of 2021. We shifted from going grocery shopping and well, shopping in general, from in-person to either delivery or curbside pick up during the initial state mandated lockdown, and we have just stayed in that mode for more than … Continue reading Grocery Shopping IN PERSON!
I'm a little behind on writing these, so my apologies if I seem to just bomb several posts. I cannot believe we have been doing this for almost a year! Thursday (3/18) - I combined the zucchini pasta and artichoke pasta recipes to create a creamy zucchini and artichoke pasta. It was pretty good, and … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 51
Well, this post marks an official year of the quarantine life. We actually went into quarantine on 3/16/20, but of course, my posts are a week behind. Things got a little crazy after this last week, so let's just jump into the food for now. Thursday (3/25) - We ordered Rockwell's for dinner. I got … Continue reading Quarantine Week 52
Wow. We are approaching a year. My husband gets his first vaccine shot tomorrow. I'm excited and terrified all at once. I should be able to get it by the end of the month. Also terrifying! But this series of posts could come to an end. I'll have to think of some other way to … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 50
Every week, it looks like the world is moving toward opening up more. While I still have some mixed feelings on this, I am looking forward to cookouts and dinner parties. I have an entire "This shit is over" party plan. It's gonna be epic. But for now, let's talk about this week's cooking. Thurs … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 49
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
