Okay, this week is going to get truncated by a day and there will be no week 99. I ran off to Mexico and I will post a separate blog on that adventure. Week 100 will also be truncated for the same reason, so I'll do one blog for those two weeks with a little … Continue reading Food Dairy week 98 (2/10-2/16)
Food Diary Week 97 (2/3-2/9)
I'm going to be honest. The photos from this particular week look like a teenager's food diary. This is definitely not going to go down as my healthiest week of food posting. So there were taquitos from the freezer. My husband and I sometimes settle on this when it's been a particularly long or stressful … Continue reading Food Diary Week 97 (2/3-2/9)
Food Diary Week 96 (1/27-2/2)
Alright, I've been totally awful at posting so far this year! I did some traveling, but that's not really an excuse since I totally had time to write on my adventures. But let's dive in and catch up on what we've been eating around here! This week my husband found purple cauliflower and fontina cheese … Continue reading Food Diary Week 96 (1/27-2/2)
Oh My Beloved Spice Shop!
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!
Semi-Quarantine Life Week 57
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
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
Grocery Shopping IN PERSON!
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!
When Things Open
I debated actually posting this one, but here ya go. It's only kind of food related.
Feeding Friends and Family
I love cooking for others. A quote, "You always make more food than could possibly be necessary, so who cares how many people show up for Thanksgiving." The hardest part of quarantine life has been that I cannot host huge family gatherings or dinner parties. I promise you that when this is all over and … Continue reading Feeding Friends and Family
