Quarantine Life Week 56 – Hopefully Our Last Week of Full Lockdown

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

Quarantine Life Week 55 – Coming Out

Well, the time we've both feared and looked forward to is coming, and it's coming quickly. My husband, middle daughter, and I got our second shots this week (April 11-18). Owen got his on Monday and so will be considered fully vaccinated April 26th, and Katie and I got ours Thursday, so will be good … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 55 – Coming Out

Quarantine Life Week 51

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

Quarantine Week 52

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

Quarantine Life Week 50

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

Quarantine Life Week 49

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

Quarantine Week 48

Spring is almost here! We are supposed to have 60 degree whether this coming week. I am super excited. Living in Chicago, I know it could still snow again, but I think it's definitely close to time to pull that grill out of storage and get myself set up downstairs for some summer grilling and … Continue reading Quarantine Week 48

Quarantine Life Week 47

I'm working more, and I am sharing my kitchen with Katie, my middle child, so I feel like I've been doing a little less super complicated cooking. But I'm still putting dinner on the table most evenings. I've had some crazy insomnia, so not been so into elaborate breakfasts lately. Thursday (2/18) - I made … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 47

Quarantine Life Week 46

Okay, I'm not really meeting my goal for posting this year. But I've found myself struggling for time to sit down. I spend more time working these days, which is great, but I need to develop a better blogging schedule, as I truly do enjoy rambling on and hoping someone is reading it. Anyway, we're … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 46

Quarantine Week 44

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
